The Dodgers do not appear to be in talks with the Yankees for Andrew Miller, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
After talks for Aroldis Chapman fell apart, there was some speculation that the Dodgers would turn their attention to acquiring another dominant lefty reliever in Miller, but Heyman says that's not the case. They certainly don't have a huge need for a late-game reliever with Kenley Jansen under contract for another season, and if they'd wanted Miller they could have simply pursued him when he was a free agent last winter. Between that and the Astros having acquired Ken Giles, the market for Miller appears to have cooled considerably. Thu, Dec 10, 2015 10:04:00 PM

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the Astros and Dodgers are talking to the Yankees about Andrew Miller.

We've heard about the Astros before for Miller, but the Dodgers are a new one. They are apparently prepared to pivot from a trade for Aroldis Chapman, which is on hold due to a domestic violence incident. Miller is owed $27 million over the next three seasons, so the Yankees could capitalize on a weak free agent class for relievers and land some quality pieces in return.

Andrew Miller "remains available" for a trade and the Astros are interested, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Sherman notes, however, that that the Yankees are asking a "huge price" to actually move their 30-year-old closer. This seems to be a case of a club trying to capitalize on the weak free agent market for relief pitching, and a trade seems unlikely for now. Miller registered a stellar 2.04 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 100/20 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings this past season for the Yanks while tallying 36 saves.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports believes that the Yankees dealing away closer Andrew Miller remains a longshot.

They continue to gauge interest in the left-hander, with the Astros, Nationals and Blue Jays believed to be the most interested suitors. The Yankees are believed to be seeking an upper echelon starting pitcher in return.

The Astros are interested in trading for Andrew Miller, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.

The Astros are looking to land a top shelf closer this offseason and Miller is at the top of their list. They've also checked in on Mark Melancon as well as Brad Boxberger and Ken Giles. Miller obviously won't come cheap after finishing third in the American League with 36 saves this past season. If the Yankees do decide to move Miller, Dellin Betances would take over the ninth inning.

One executive told Jayson Stark of ESPN.com that he thinks the Yankees "will move" Andrew Miller for a Craig Kimbrel-like package built around MLB-ready starters.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has indicated that he's "open to anything" this offseason, so with Dellin Betances next in line for the closer job, it's no surprise that he's at least considering the possibility of dealing Miller in order to upgrade in other areas. Whether another team will give a package similar to what the Red Sox did for Kimbrel is another matter altogether. Miller is owed $27 million over the next three seasons and makes for an appealing alternative to a weak free agent class for relievers.

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal indicated that the Diamondbacks will be among the team that are expected to show interest in Yankees closer Andrew Miller.

On Monday, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported that Yankees GM Brian Cashman will hear out offers for the team's closer this off-season. Cashman said that the team is "open to all ideas." Miller was named the American League Reliever of the Year in October thanks to a stellar campaign that saw him convert 36-of-38 save opportunities while pitching to a 2.04 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 100/20 K/BB ratio across 61 2/3 innings. If he is moved this off-season, expect stud setup man Dellin Betances to take over the reins in the ninth inning.

Andrew Miller's name is "out there a bit" in trade talks, per Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman acknowledged in the same report that he's willing to listen to offers on Miller, telling Heyman: "We're open to all ideas -- as always. It doesn't mean I'd do anything but if the Dutch never asked the Indians for Manhattan you'd be living in New Jersey." Miller won Reliever of the Year honors in the American League this season after posting a 2.04 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 100 strikeouts in 61 2/3 innings while converting 36 saves in 38 tries. He is entering his second year of a four-year, $36 million deal.

Andrew Miller has been awarded the 2015 Mariano Rivera American League Reliever of the Year.

In his first year as Yankees closer, Miller pitched to a 2.04 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 100/20 K/BB ratio over the course of 61 2/3 innings. The 30-year-old southpaw converted 36-of-38 save chances in helping lead the Bombers to the AL Wild Card game. He ended the season striking out two in a scoreless inning as the Yankees fell to the Astros by a score of 3-0.

Andrew Miller threw 38 pitches in two scoreless innings against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

The Yankees extended Miller in a tie game tonight, and it didn't work out, as they lost in 11. It'll be interesting to see what they'll do if presented with a save situation on Thursday. Dellin Betances, who threw 20 pitches tonight, seems more likely than Miller to be available for the ninth.

Andrew Miller nailed down his 36th save of the season Saturday in the Yankees' 2-1 defeat of the White Sox.

Miller tossed a perfect ninth inning, striking out two of the three batters he faced. The right-hander has been tremendous in his first year of a four-year, $36 million free agent deal, boasting a 1.97 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, and 97/18 K/BB ratio in 59 1/3 frames.

Andrew Miller allowed a solo home run in the ninth inning to blow the save, but the Yankees still beat the Blue Jays in 10 innings on Tuesday.

Miller got a quick strikeout of Justin Smoak to open the ninth inning, but then served up a solo homer to Dioner Navarro to tie the game at 3-3. He would strike out Chris Colabello before loading the bases on a double and two walks before striking out Josh Donaldson. Miller also pitched in the 10th inning after the Yankees took a 6-4 lead, and he allowed a solo home run to Edwin Encarnacion. However, he would see his way out of the inning to wrap up the win. Miller is now 34-for-36 in save situations with a 2.04 ERA and a 93/18 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings.

Andrew Miller struck out the side in the ninth inning to earn his 34th save in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Rays.

Brandon Guyer, Richie Shaffer, and Tim Beckham went down on strikes consecutively. Miller had also struck out the side on Monday against the Rays. He's 34-for-35 in save situations with a 1.80 ERA and an 89/16 K/BB ratio in 55 innings.

Andrew Miller struck out the side in the ninth inning to earn his 33rd save in Monday's 4-1 win against the Rays.

It didn't look like Miller would get a chance to enter, but the Yankees rallied for four runs in the top of the ninth to take a 4-1 lead. The lefty came in and easily fanned Steven Souza, Jr., Richie Shaffer, and Joey Butler to end the game. He's 33-for-34 in save situations with a 1.83 ERA and an 86/16 K/BB ratio in 54 innings.

Andrew Miller secured his 32nd save of the season Monday in the Yankees' 8-6 defeat of the Orioles.

Miller issued a two-out walk to Steve Pearce and an RBI single to Chris Davis, but he struck out Jimmy Paredes to end it. Miller stands 32-for-33 in save opportunities this season with a 1.94 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 79/16 K/BB ratio in 51 innings. And the Yankees still have a good shot at the American League East crown.
