Indians may not use Andrew Miller as much in these playoffs

Remember the pain Yankees fans endured last October as they watched Andrew Miller, just months removed from the famed pinstripes, dominate the Indians’ opponents en route to a near-championship? Have you noticed the Yankees, if they can survive a likely American League wild-card game, are on track to face Miller and the Indians in the AL Division Series? (New York Post)

Cleveland Indians activate Andrew Miller from disabled list

The man Toronto Blue Jays fans called "The Angel of Death" last October is back. The Indians officially activated relief ace Andrew Miller from the disabled list Thursday, meaning the 2016 ALCS MVP will be available to pitch during tonight's game against the Kansas City Royals, if needed. Miller, a 2017 All-Star, is having an incredible season. (WKYC)

Matt Harvey ‘extremely frustrated’ after latest debacle

A field marshal was necessary Wednesday night to direct the small army Matt Harvey put on the bases. In only 3 ¹/3 innings of work at Wrigley Field, the beleaguered right-hander twice loaded the bases and was probably fortunate to allow only five earned runs in the Mets’ 17-5 loss to the Cubs. “It’s kind of hard to take any positives out of the last two years,” Harvey said. (New York Post)

Andrew Miller set for return to streaking Indians

As if they weren't already rolling, the Indians are getting back All-Star Andrew Miller. Baseball's hottest team plans to activate the elite left-hander Thursday, ending his second stint on the disabled list with tendinitis in his right knee and giving the Indians their best reliever. Despite not having Miller, the Indians have set the American League record with 21 straight wins. (

The Kansas City Royals announced Tuesday that they claimed right-handed pitcher Mike Morin off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels.

Matt Harvey takes step forward as Mets beat Reds

What unfolded during Matt Harvey’s five innings against the Reds on Thursday would not be mistaken for vintage dominance. He fell behind in counts and generated only a few swings-and-misses. His fastball registered higher than 94 mph only once, and even then, it came against the opposing pitcher. But after a disastrous return from the disabled list, Harvey’s outing represented progress. (Newsday)

Yankees' Adam Warren could be done for the season

Adam Warren was placed on the DL with lower back spasms and there is a chance the right-handed reliever could miss the rest of the regular season. “Right now the doctors recommended he rest for two weeks. We were hoping to get him back here in Baltimore but we didn’t,’’ Girardi said of Warren, who last pitched Friday and experienced the problem Sunday. (New York Post)

George "Snuffy" Stirnweiss: The UNC quarterback who had a 10-year MLB career

North Carolina has their own dual football/baseball star in their history. George “Snuffy” Stirnweiss only played one of them professionally. It was arguably the one he was worse at. Stirnweiss was born in New York City. He attended Fordham Prep, where he was a three-sport star, also having a solid high school basketball career. (Tar Heel Blog)

Mets' Matt Harvey still predicting success

Matt Harvey stood on the mound on Saturday afternoon, supposedly a changed man. It was a newer, trimmer, healthier Harvey ready to show that the first part of his dismal 2017 season was behind him, and he can get outs and put up zeros. It didn't happen. Harvey was shelled right from the start. The Houston Astros hit him for four runs in the first inning. (

UNC Baseball Holds First Fall Scrimmage

The UNC Tar Heels held their first scrimmage of the Fall on Sunday on a perfect day for baseball at Boshamer Stadium. The Blue squad took an early 4-0 lead and held on for an 8-4 win in the eight-inning scrimmage. There were a total of 19 hits and four errors. Dylan Enwiller was 3-4 with two RBI and one run scored, while Dallas Tessar was 3-5 with one run scored. (

Matt Harvey's return from injury wasn't worth the wait

After being slapped around in what emerged as the shortest outing of your career, you grab onto anything you can for a positive. That’s what Matt Harvey did after lasting just two innings and absorbing the loss in the Mets’ 12-8 manhandling by the Astros in Game 1 of the day-night doubleheader at Minute Maid Park, this city’s first sporting event after Hurricane Harvey. (New York Post)

Matt Harvey has shortest start of Mets career in return to mound

For the Astros, it was an emotional and necessary return. For Matt Harvey it was a rough return to the mound. The Mets righthander could not get into the third inning in his first start since June in the first game back in Houston since the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey devastated the area. The Astros got to him early and beat the Mets 12-8 at Minute Maid Park (New York Daily News)

Matt Harvey is ready to return to the Mets despite a lack of velocity

After two years of battling his body, Matt Harvey has come to a realization: throwing hard isn’t pitching. The Mets righthander will make his return to the mound on Saturday against the Astros at Minute Maid Park in Houston keeping that in mind after several minor league rehab starts where his fastball has topped out at 93 mph. (New York Daily News)

Matt Harvey set to return Saturday vs. Houston

New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey is ready to return against the Houston Astros on Saturday after throwing a bullpen session Wednesday. He has been sidelined since June with a right shoulder stress injury, and will be activated to start the first game of the doubleheader. "Feel good. I was able to go right around 75 pitches last start," Harvey said. (

Cardinals’ Zac Gallen brings bulldog mentality to the mound

Long before he emerged as a prospect right-hander in the St. Louis Cardinals farm system, he was just another dreamer. Zac Gallen had challenged himself coming out of high school, driving down from cold-weather New Jersey and taking on a mission to pitch for the University of North Carolina, one of the premier programs in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
