Vs. Cancer Raises Close To One Million Dollars In 2015

Vs. Cancer, a nonprofit started by former UNC baseball player Chase Jones, has raised nearly $1 million in the past year. “When I was diagnosed I promised to fight this disease as long as I could,” Jones said. “Point blank, we will continue to fight this disease. This year we are one million dollars closer to the bold and radical idea that we will truly end child cancer.” (

Adam Warren learned Yankees traded him from watching TV while on vacation

Two weeks ago, the New York Yankees traded for second baseman Starlin Castro from the Chicago Cubs, shipping right-hander Adam Warren out in exchange. Warren said he found out about the news while on vacation. "We were in St. Lucia," Warren told MLB Network last Friday of the trade that went down on December 8. (

Yankees closer Andrew Miller commemorates 'Festivus' holiday with donations to charity

Though winter has not yet ushered in the cold blustery days of snow and ice, Yankees closer Andrew Miller has caught the Festivus bug in sunny Florida, his home state. While there, the lanky lefty felt inspired to conceive a "Festivus Miracle," and took to Twitter to make it happen. (YES Network)

North Carolina Baseball Has Active Fall In Community

In addition to a busy fall season of practices and scrimmages that concluded with the annual Fall World Series, the UNC baseball team had a full semester off the field serving the local community. In October, the team cleaned and made repairs at a local women's shelter and continued its work with the Miracle League, an organization that helps children with special needs. (

New York Yankees Will Regret Trading Adam Warren

Adam Warren was a very solid pitcher for the New York Yankees, one that was versatile and had a commendable work rate. He was often a victim of his own versatility, finding himself as the odd man out despite consistency and an attitude matched by few. Warren was a solid starter and a very effective reliever who will no doubt end up thriving in Chicago. (Elite Sports NY)

Let's not forget how valuable Adam Warren was to Yankees

On the night of October 1 last season, the Yankees were facing a must-win game against the Boston Red Sox. It was a warm, if breezy evening in the Bronx. The season wasn't over if they lost. But doing so would have put their Wild Card playoff chances in more jeopardy than they already were, their fate relying more and more on the outcomes of other teams. (

Yankees’ Andrew Miller Doesn’t Want to Be Traded; Wants to Remain in Bronx

Andrew Miller knows what's been heard and said over the last month with regards to his whereabouts for the 2016 season. The moment that New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman admitted that he was open to taking trade inquiries on Miller this offseason, it sent off a lot of question marks and potential proposals that people talked about as far as what the Yankees could get for their left-handed closer.

Introducing New Cubs Righthander Adam Warren

The Cubs have a new pitcher, Adam Warren, acquired in the Starlin Castro deal. I asked Jason Cohen of SB Nation's Yankees site Pinstripe Alley to tell us a little bit about Warren. (Bleed Cubbie Blue)

Who is Adam Warren? A look at Cubs' new pitcher

Warren is the return and at first glance, a 28-year-old pitcher who is not a household name might seem like a minor haul for a player loaded with potential, has almost 1,000 hits on his resume before his 26th birthday and is on a reasonably team-friendly deal for at least the next four years. But Warren - the Yankees' fourth-round pick in 2009 out of UNC - can be a solid return for the Cubs. (CSN Chicago)

Yankees hitting coach believes Dustin Ackley's September success can carry into 2016

Newly-promoted New York Yankees hitting coach Alan Cockrell knows a thing or two about Dustin Ackley, and also a thing or two about the specter of high expectations....So, when the untrained eye perhaps saw Dustin Ackley, a .243 career hitter with a .215 average in 2015, as a reclamation project when the Yankees acquired him from Seattle in July, Cockrell saw opportunity.

Seattle Mariners All-Star Kyle Seager Buys $4M North Carolina Home

Putting his $100 million contract extension to use, Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager recently purchased a $4-million waterfront estate in Salisbury, NC, that affirms his stature as one of the game’s brightest young stars. The 28-year-old Seager, a North Carolina native, is an All-Star alum and Gold Glove winner. (

Adam Warren traded to Chicago Cubs

The New York Yankees have agreed to a deal that will make Starlin Castro their new second baseman, a source with direct knowledge of the club's personnel decisions told NJ Advance Media on Tuesday night. The Yankees traded swingman Adam Warren and infielder Brendan Ryan to the Chicago Cubs in exchange for Castro. Warren, 28, was a big part of the Yankees' pitching staff in 2015. (

Seattle Mariners Sign Catcher Chris Iannetta to 2016 Contract

Seattle Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager of Baseball Operations Jerry Dipoto brought in a name that he was quite familiar with over the last few years, signing free agent catcher Chris Iannetta to a 1-year contract through the 2016 season. Iannetta, 32, hit .188 with 28 runs, 10 doubles, 10 home runs and 34 RBI in 92 games with the Angels last season. (Seattle Mariners)

Yankees hitting coach sees sustainability in Ackley’s late-season improvements

There’s a reason Dustin Ackley didn’t cost much at the trade deadline. Two soon-to-be-out-of-options minor leaguers were enough to acquire a former No. 2 overall draft pick only because Ackley was hitting just .215/.270/.366 in Seattle, and his big league track record suggested he wasn’t capable of much more.

Yankees' Adam Warren: 'I want to be a starter'

Adam Warren has made up his mind. If Warren had his way, he'd open next season in the Yankees' starting rotation — not the bullpen. "I want to be a starter," Warren said. Warren, 28, will enter spring training as a starting pitcher and will have a chance — for the fourth consecutive year — to compete for spot in what's expected to be a crowded race to enter the rotation.
