Outfielder Zach Daly transferring from UNC

Zach Daly is looking for a new college baseball team after playing the past two seasons at North Carolina. The outfielder said Tuesday that UNC coach Mike Fox granted Daly’s release about two weeks ago. Daly has been in touch with several Division II programs but is undecided where he will end up. Daly’s reason for transferring is “just to get more playing time so I can play every day,” he said. (Gaston Gazette)

Will Adam Warren crack the Yankees' rotation?

General manager Brian Cashman has suggested several times (including Monday) that Adam Warren could be an option. And Joe Girardi suggested Tuesday that he might be close to considering that.

Daniel Bard, now in Single-A, still having control problems

It wasn't long ago that hard-throwing right-hander Daniel Bard was one of the most dominant relievers in baseball. Bard, now 28, ran into some control problems when Boston moved him into the rotation in 2012, walking 43 while striking out only 38 in 59 1/3 innings. A stint in the minors didn't do him any good. In fact, the control problems only got worse. (CBS Sports)

Matt Harvey's 2014 return unlikely

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson left little doubt Tuesday that it is highly unlikely Matt Harvey will pitch in the major leagues in 2014. Harvey definitely will not pitch in the major leagues within 11 months of the Oct. 22, 2014 Tommy John surgery, Alderson said. That leaves only a tiny window -- the final six games of the regular season -- before the Mets conclude play Sept. 28. (ESPN.com)

Matt Harvey, Jimmy Fallon hang at Stanley Cup Finals

Injured New York Mets star Matt Harvey hung out with "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon Monday night at Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals in New York and they made fun of each other on Instagram, a sign that Harvey's cool-guy status in NYC hasn't gone away just because he's sidelined for all of 2014. And Harvey's beard is almost as good as that photobomb by the girl behind them. (Yahoo! Sports)

Marlins won't rush Colin Moran, who has a future at third

It might be a while before fans see Colin Moran make his big league debut.

The Major League Baseball Draft was held at the end of last week with multiple Tar Heels getting calls from teams including several recruits.

For the first time in four games, Moran did not strike out twice.
