Adam Warren took what might have been a big step forward in the Yankees' fifth starter competition, throwing five innings against the Tigers at Joker Marchant Stadium Friday.

Inside Matt Harvey's injury rehab

Matt Harvey’s first post-surgery act was one of defiance — a middle finger from his hospital bed directed at the surgery itself.

Tar Heel Rally Falls Short In 12-11 Loss To Davidson

Seager handling success by doing what he always does — tweaking his swing

There might be no player who better symbolizes the Mariners’ rising fortunes than third baseman Kyle Seager. Just a year ago the Mariners and Seager offered the hope of promise and possibility.

Andrew Miller: This Lefty Reliever Specializes in Outs

In 2012, Andrew Miller’s first season as a full-time reliever with the Boston Red Sox, the left-hander dominated left-handed hitters, allowing a paltry .429 on-base-plus slugging percentage. But, like a lot of lefties, he couldn’t manage the same success against right-handed hitters, allowing an .829 OPS. “I made a conscious effort the next year to do a better job against them,” said Miller, who signed with the Yankees in December.

Andrew Miller in a good place with Yankees

The long hair and bushy beard that became so familiar during his four-year tenure with the Red Sox are gone, both victims of the anachronistic grooming rules the Yankees adhere to. But there’s no mistaking Andrew Miller on the mound. Once the season starts, Miller will be pitching much later in the game for the Yankees and is sure to be tougher to hit. (Boston Globe)
