Former First Round Pick Levi Michael Still Aiming For The Major Leagues
Levi Michael was selected out of UNC by the Minnesota Twins in the 2011 Major League Baseball Draft. If Michael intends on making a major league debut at some point, finding his way to Triple-A Rochester during the 2015 season should be the goal. At 24 years old, there’s no reason for the Twins to slow play Michael if he can put things together. He could prove to be a useful bench option.
UNC Baseball Hosts UNC-Asheville
With the final two weeks of the college baseball regular season on the horizon, the No. 24 UNC baseball team resumes its quest for Omaha on Tuesday—welcoming the UNC-Asheville Bulldogs to Chapel Hill for a game at Boshamer Stadium. The Tar Heels come into the game with a 29-16 record, and have won 12 of their last 15 games during a recent hot streak, while the Bulldogs have struggled this season, currently sitting at 20-26 in 2015.
Diamond Heels Starting to Think Big
At 29-16 overall, and 13-10 in the conference, the Diamond Heels currently sit in second place in the ACC Coastal Division and have their sights currently set on hosting an NCAA tournament regional in Chapel Hill—with the team also starting to show why they believe they have the talent to reach the College World Series in Omaha.
This Week With Mike Fox
Inside Carolina had an exclusive interview with head coach Mike Fox while the UNC Baseball team was on a break during final exams. "We gave the players completely off of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday - they could come in optional if they wanted to around their exams and reading day. We got back to practice over the weekend Saturday and Sunday."
Playing for Yankees a relief for Andrew Miller
Before the Yankees got to Boston on Thursday for their three-game weekend set with the Red Sox, Andrew Miller made plans to get to the city a little earlier. For two of the three-plus years Miller spent with the Sox, Craig Breslow’s Strike 3 Foundation had thrown his annual “Sip Happens” food and wine tasting to raise money for childhood cancer research, and Miller always had been a supporter.
Yankees' closer Andrew Miller making history with perfect save record
Not long after Alex Rodriguez hit his 660th career home run to break a 2-2 tie Friday night at Fenway Park, Yankees' reliever Andrew Miller came into the game and made some history of his own. With a 1-2-3 ninth inning, Miller became the first pitcher in Yankees history to record nine saves in 23 games, a feat not even Mariano Rivera ever accomplished in his illustrious 19- year career.
Mariners need Dustin Ackley to start producing
With right-hander Samuel Deduno getting the start on the mound for the Astros on Friday night against the Mariners, Dustin Ackley was in the starting lineup for the second straight night. But how long will that continue if Ackley doesn’t start producing?
Closing role suits Andrew Miller
The beard is long gone, the hair trimmed all the way back and there’s just a wispy brown mustache on the face of Andrew Miller, closer for the Yankees. But Red Sox fans should have no problem recognizing him this weekend, for the rest of the season and for three more years — whether they like it or not. He is simply one of the best relievers in all of baseball right now.
Dealing Matt Harvey is somehow nearing the sky-high hype
It’ll take a while longer to accomplish, and that’s not Matt Harvey’s fault. It’s our fault. But it looks doable, and that’s a tribute to the Mets’ young ace. Yes, sooner rather than later, Harvey’s track record might finally catch up to his hype.
Yankees closer Andrew Miller takes the subway to Yankee Stadium
This past offseason the Yankees spent big on a top free agent reliever, but rather than re-sign incumbent closer David Robertson, they signed Andrew Miller to a four-year, $36 million contract. They saved $10 million and gained a draft pick by replacing Miller with Robertson. Miller has been stellar in pinstripes, going 8-for-8 in save chances with 20 strikeouts in only 11 1/3 innings so far this year.
Benton Moss, Sasha Seymore Honored At Chancellor's Awards

Benton Moss, a senior on the baseball team, received the Jim Tatum Memorial Award.

Tar Heels in the Pros: Matt Harvey
Considered to be one of the best young pitchers in the major leagues, Matt Harvey has been on fire this season as a starting pitcher for the New York Mets.
