Matt Harvey considers adjustments to compensate for extra rest

Matt Harvey insisted he was not seeking an alibi. Still, Harvey suggested it will take adjustments to feel sharp pitching with a full week between starts. Harvey allowed three runs on seven hits and five walks in five innings on Saturday and the New York Mets ultimately lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3 on Saturday at Dodger Stadium. (ESPN.com)

Summer Baseball Dispatches: Logan Warmoth

This summer has been a tremendous learning experience both on and off the field. From being coached by former Baltimore Orioles outfielder Larry Sheets, to having Tim Kurkjian of ESPN talk to us, to meeting my idol Cal Ripken Jr. Meeting Cal was definitely the highlight of the summer. I was born on the day (September 6, 1995) that Cal broke Lou Gehrig’s record for most consecutive games played (2131). (GoHeels.com)

Yankees' Adam Warren: Still see myself as a starter

The New York Yankees have determined that for the foreseeable future, Adam Warren is a relief pitcher. But having made 14 starts this season, establishing his ability to pitch deep into a ballgame and having the lowest ERA of anyone in the Yankees rotation has given Warren a different view of himself.

Reliever Mike Morin on rehab assignment in Salt Lake as he nears return to Angels

Mike Morin is counting the days. “Thirty-five days feels like a long time,” he said. The right-hander last threw for the Angels on May 23, before succumbing to a left oblique strain, interrupting what had been a sometimes-challenging sophomore season after Morin had established himself as a solid option out of the bullpen a year ago.

Yankees send RHP Adam Warren to bullpen after 14-game stint in rotation

For the month of June, Adam Warren has arguably been the New York Yankees' most reliable starting pitcher. However, he will start July out of the starting rotation and back in the bullpen. Warren was informed by the Yankees following their 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels that he would not make his scheduled start Wednesday, but would instead report back to the bullpen, where he is likely to work as the setup man.

Matt Harvey admits to unforeseen post-surgery struggles

Matt Harvey looks like an ace again — allowing one run or fewer for the third straight start, Saturday against the Reds — after enduring the worst stretch of his career, but the Mets’ star said he still doesn’t feel quite normal since undergoing Tommy John surgery and missing all of last season. “I’m finding that it’s a lot [tougher] than I anticipated, and it was earlier in the season,” Harvey said. (New York Post)

Michael Russell back from injury with a bang

Assigned to the Hudson Valley Renegades, Michael Russell made the most of his pro debut. In the Renegades’ season-opener at Aberdeen on June 19, Russell cracked a two-run home run on the second pitch he saw at Ripken Stadium. “People say it all the time, but you come back wanting to play so much,” Russell said. “It’s really cliché for people who are hurt, but it’s true.” (Times Herald-Record)

Alex White Back Home in South with Gwinnett Braves

Alex White's comeback from Tommy John surgery hasn't gone as planned, but the North Carolina native, back home in the south, is finally feeling a little more like his old self. White allowed one hit over seven innings in his third start for the Braves and Jose Peraza lined a go-ahead RBI double in the ninth as Triple-A Gwinnett blanked Pawtucket, 1-0, on Friday night at McCoy Stadium.

Yankees' Adam Warren pitches well (again), but his future remains uncertain

On Thursday, for the fourth time in 14 starts this season, Yankees' starter Adam Warren exited a game after pitching five 2/3 innings. This isn't bad, especially for a guy who's the No. 5 starter on a pretty good ball club. But even with the solid outing, it may still not be enough for Warren to stay in New York's starting rotation.

UNC Finishes 5th in Learfield Sports Directors' Cup

After finishing out of the top ten last season when UNC failed to win a title conference or national, the Tar Heel athletic program has rebounded for a 5th place finish in the 2014-15 Learfield Sports Directors' Cup. UNC's fifth place finish is an ACC best with Virginia and its league first three NCAA titles in one season just behind the Heels in 6th. (Tar Heel Blog)

Summer Baseball Dispatches: Brian Miller

I hope you have had an enjoyable summer thus far! My time with the Holly Springs Salamanders has been awesome and I’ve had a lot of fun playing and building new relationships. Seeing Virginia win the National Championship was great for the ACC, but witnessing that will definitely motivate us for next year. I know we’re all really anxious to get back on the field and play in front of you. (GoHeels.com)

Andrew Miller hits his stride as Yankees’ closer

Before he was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in 2006, Andrew Miller put together one of the most decorated seasons by a pitcher in North Carolina baseball history. During his junior year, Miller compiled a 13-2 record with a 2.48 ERA in 123.1 innings and won several national player of the year awards. He would leave UNC as the program’s leader in strikeouts with 325, and looked to continue that success in the major leagues. (Daily Tar Heel)
