Report: Matt Harvey Signs One-Year, $5.6 Million Deal

The New York Mets and pitcher Matt Harvey have agreed on a one-year, $5.625 million deal. The oft-injured pitcher went 5–7 last season with a career-worst 6.70 ERA and 67 strikeouts in 19 starts.

Adam Warren agrees to one-year, $3.315 million deal with Yankees

Adam Warren agreed to a one-year, $3.315 million deal with the Yankees on Friday to avoid arbitration. This was his last year as an arbitration-eligible player, as Warren is set to hit the open market following the 2018 season. He was a vital cog in the Yankees' bullpen during the 2017 campaign, posting a 2.35 ERA and 0.87 WHIP with 54 strikeouts in 57.1 innings. (CBS Sports)

UNC Baseball Ranked No. 7 in Perfect Game’s Preseason Top 25

With college baseball season just over a month away, Perfect Game released its preseason top 25 on Wednesday. Coming off an outstanding 2017 regular season, UNC will begin the year at No. 7 in the polls.

Tar Heel Trio Joins N.C. Sports Hall Of Fame

All-America pitcher Scott Bankhead, tennis star Laura Dupont and golfer Donna Andrews headline the 2018 class of inductees for the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame. This year's 15-person class is the largest in several years. Other inductees include an Olympic Gold Medal speed-skater, a veteran major league umpire and one of the top administrators in the NBA.

In appreciation of now-retired Daniel Bard

Daniel Bard was a power reliever before they became the norm. But he wasn't just unique on the field. It didn't take long to realize the University of North Carolina product's thought process was deeper than most. Maybe that didn't help when trying to figure things out at the end, but it certainly wasn't a bad thing for those striking up clubhouse conversations. (WEEI.com)

Zac Gallen likeliest Miami Marlins prospect to start in 2018

While most of the prospects cut their teeth at the lower-levels, Zac Gallen appears primed to make the Miami roster. Gallen figures to pitch his way straight to the middle in time. He doesn’t have top-of-the-rotation type stuff, but his arsenal is deep and he keeps hitters off-balance. He saw extensive action in AA last year and pitched well. Last year, Gallen had a 3.79 ERA (Marlin Maniac)

After 5-year odyssey, Daniel Bard calls it a career

One major surgery, three arm-slot adjustments, and five minor league contracts later, Daniel Bard has called it a career. After some more tinkering with Mets coaches at the team’s facility in Port St. Lucie, the right-hander decided to retire in mid-August. “I ran into enough of those days where I said, ‘Is this really worth me being away from my family?’” (SB Nation)

Turner's Take: Best of 2017, Part One

It was a year of success and a year of change, as I was in Phoenix for the Final Four in early April and three months later, out of a contract and brainstorming a new venture. If you've followed me from GoHeels.com to Argyle Report, and I appreciate that. It's been fun to be the 'fan proxy' over these years, and I appreciate the opportunity to enhance your own experience. (Argyle Report)

Turner's Take: Gratitude

What a privilege! How grateful are we that we are Carolina? That doesn't mean that everything that Carolina does is right — as we've learned over the past seven years. But there's a reason that the ABC fans have to join forces. It's because they're not Carolina. In fact, Carolina so dominates the thoughts of some that they can't even fully enjoy their own successes. (Argyle Report)

Zac Gallen: Marlin on the Rise

Zac Gallen “grew up watching (UNC) go to Omaha on a constant basis,” which factored into his decision to attend. Another big influence? Basketball great Michael Jordan. “I wanted to go where he went,” the starting pitching prospect said. We spoke to Gallen barely a week after the Marlins officially acquired him from the St. Louis Cardinals in the Marcell Ozuna trade. (Fish Stripes)

A Christmas wish list for UNC athletics

It’s been a great year for UNC athletics. There’s been a national championship in men’s basketball, a couple of Final Four appearances for men’s soccer and field hockey, a national seed for baseball, a national runner-up finish for men’s tennis, and a handful of conference championships. Here now is a glimpse at my Christmas Wish List for UNC athletics in 2018. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Scott Forbes Among Top 10 College Baseball Assistant Coaches

4. Scott Forbes, North Carolina: Forbes, who ranked No. 5 on this list in 2012, has long been respected for his teaching ability and demeanor. He added a new wrinkle last season as he showed off his versatility. After 11 seasons as pitching coach, he moved to a new role as recruiting coordinator and hitting coach. Forbes, a former catcher, quickly found success. (Baseball America)

What new Mets regime sees in Matt Harvey for last ride

At what mile marker of a marathon are you finishing no matter what? Aches. Cramps. Heck, maybe even broken bones. Twenty miles? Twenty-two? Twenty-three? This is where the Mets are with Matt Harvey. They have come so far and through so much with him that it makes no sense to end the marathon now. He is a free agent after the 2018 season. (New York Post)

Former UNC Pitcher Zac Gallen Included as Part of Cardinals’ Trade For Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna

As the Miami Marlins continue to sell off nearly every high-level player they have under a new ownership group including former Yankee Derek Jeter, a recent UNC standout found his way into the drama Wednesday. Right-handed pitcher Zac Gallen was part of a four-player package sent from the St. Louis Cardinals to Miami in exchange for All-Star left fielder Marcell Ozuna. (Chapelboro.com)
