Kyle Seager among biggest All-Star snubs

Biggest MLB All-Star snubs: Ian Kinsler, Tigers; Kyle Seager, Mariners. And that led to Kinsler and Seager being this year's biggest snubs. Entering Sunday, Kinsler ranked third among AL position players in fWAR and Seager seventh. In Baseball-Reference WAR, they ranked third and sixth, so by either measure two of the American League's top 10 players didn't make it. (ESPN.com)

All signs pointing up for Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager

The general view among the Mariners is that Kyle Seager remains a work in progress. That as good as he’s been this season — and it’s easy to build an All-Star case on his behalf — there’s more to come. Much more. “He can be really good,” second baseman Robinson Cano said. “Really good. Trust me, this is 2014. You will see in the next few years how good he can be.” (The Olympian)

Andrew Miller faces uncertain future with fading Red Sox

Andrew Miller knows full well he’s not the priority, knows he’s not going to generate the headlines like Jon Lester has. But Miller knows he’s an impending free agent, just like Lester — and just like Lester, the Red Sox might have to make a decision on Miller in the weeks leading up to the July 31 trading deadline. He doesn’t have to be asked any questions for the thoughts to creep into his mind. (Providence Journal)

Dustin Ackley starts July right with three-hit game

While the Mariners offense has been on the rise the last month, left fielder Dustin Ackley has been one hitter still searching for answers. But the former first-round Draft pick went 3-for-4 with a walk in Tuesday's 13-2 win and said that was just what the doctor ordered. Ackley was hitting .267 in mid-May, but saw his average plummet to .214 with a rugged June. (MLB.com)

Best Games Of 2013-14: No. 15-No. 11

No. 13: Carolina 4, Virginia 2 - Baseball, April 20, 2014: A young Carolina squad had gone toe-to-toe with the top-ranked Cavaliers in the first two games of a midseason ACC series, falling 3-2 and 3-1 before entering the Easter Sunday finale with hopes of avoiding a sweep.

Chris Munnelly adjusting to closer's role in minors

Chris Munnelly had a late start to his second season in professional baseball, but he has quickly settled into his new role as a closer with the Tri-City ValleyCats.

That’s for the shelf in the man cave.” (Seattle Times)

Omaha Eight: Picking the 2015 CWS field

The Tar Heels didn't have a 2014 campaign to remember, but this should be a vastly improved and more experienced club in '15. For starters, the Tar Heels welcome back a bulk of their offensive lineup with Wood Myers and Skye Bolt, among others, as headliners. But the biggest returning starter is Landon Lassiter, who hit .305 last season, and will return to college for another season. (Perfect Game)
