This Week in UNC Baseball with Mike Fox

Inside Carolina caught up with Tar Heels skipper Mike Fox after UNC swept Radford. The Tar Heels are 7-0 heading into two mid-week games (Winthrop, St. John's) before hosting Long Beach State this weekend. "Luca was sensational yesterday. To strike out 15 in a game in eight innings with only 99 pitches, that is unbelievably hard to do." (Inside Carolina)

UNC’s Luca Dalatri Selected ACC Co-Pitcher of the Week

Florida State’s Tyler Holton and North Carolina’s Luca Dalatri were selected as ACC Co-Pitchers of the Week. In just his second career start, Dalatri struck out 15 batters with no walks in a 7-5 win over Radford. The 15 strikeouts are the most by a Tar Heel pitcher since Matt Harvey struck out 15 at Clemson in 2010, and are the most for a UNC freshman since 1999. (The ACC)

Undefeated Tar Heels Rise to No. 8 in D1Baseball.com Top 25

Lights Out Pitching Carries UNC Baseball to 7-0 Start, Dalatri Shines in Sunday Win Over Radford

Entering its series finale against Radford, the ninth-ranked UNC baseball team had won its first six games of 2017 thanks to some timely hitting backing up a shutdown pitching staff.

Astros manager impressed with early results from Colin Moran

Colin Moran worked in the offseason to revamp his swing. Moran had developed bad habits in his hitting mechanics last season, a year in which he reached the major leagues for the first time. The former No. 6 overall draft pick needed to get back to what worked for him in the past. So far in spring training, the results have encouraged the Houston Astros' brass. (Houston Chronicle)

Daniel Bard a spring training story worth rooting for

It’s rare that a player with the talent of Daniel Bard simply loses it. Still “just” 31, Bard may have lost his prime, but a comeback of any kind would be a pleasant surprise for the once-promising right-hander. During a spring training period rife with noise but which provides little signal, he’s a story worth rooting for. After all, what’s spring for, if not new beginnings? (FanRag Sports)

Daniel Bard has new delivery, 96 mph fastball with Cardinals

Reliever Daniel Bard is trying to make a major league comeback with the St. Louis Cardinals. He has a new delivery and he's throwing his fastball 96 mph and he features a 86 mph changeup. Bard, now 31, dominated with a 1.93 ERA for the Red Sox in 73 outings during 2010, then recorded a 3.33 ERA in 70 relief outings during 2011. But he lost control in 2012. (Mass Live)

Frustrated by errors last season, Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager has addressed those issues

The look returns to Kyle Seager’s face. It’s one part annoyance, another part aggravation. It’s arises when Seager does something on a baseball field that he believes is unacceptable for himself. A perfectionist and often his harshest critic, Seager suffers his mistakes with minimal sympathy for himself or any mitigating circumstance of the situation. (Seattle Times)

Andrew Miller's first live BP draws respect from teammates

Brandon Guyer introduced himself to left-hander Andrew Miller last August. Both players had just been traded to the Indians, so Cleveland's new outfielder -- best known for his ability to hit left-handed pitching -- had a message for his new Tribe teammate. "I said, 'Nice to meet you, man. I'm glad I don't have to face you again,'" Guyer recalled with a laugh on Monday. (MLB.com)
