Tyler Ramirez a good fit for the Oakland A's

Tyler Ramirez is used to being challenged. As a freshman, he suited up for 58 games in the outfield for ACC powerhouse UNC. He hit .286 that season, earning a permanent spot in the Tar Heels’ starting line-up for the next two seasons. Now in his first full professional season, Ramirez is the new kid starting on a veteran team once again as a member of the High-A Stockton Ports. (Oakland Clubhouse)

Matt Harvey has shown that he can adjust for Mets

The Matt Harvey of today is not the Matt Harvey we see in our minds. Despite the injuries and difficulties, to many Harvey maintains an air of impenetrability. His swagger doesn’t falter, even when his slider does. He holds himself like an ace, though he’s dropped down to No. 3 in the rotation. But maybe it’s time to see things for what they are. (Newsday)

With Buster Posey back, Tim Federowicz designated for assignment
