Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Astros had the highest offer on free agent left-hander Andrew Miller at four years and $40 million.
Miller opted to take slightly less at four years and $36 million to land in a much better situation overall with the Yankees. It shows a willingness for the Astros to spend, and could mean they have a legitimate chance at landing one of the other big market relievers such as David Robertson who they are rumored to have interest in as well.

Yankees signed LHP Andrew Miller to a four-year, $36 million contract.

Miller has passed his physical, so the deal is official. Quite a day for the Bombers, who also added shortstop Didi Gregorius in a three-way trade with the Diamondbacks and Tigers. Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that Miller actually had a bigger offer from another team, but he ultimately opted to sign with the Yankees. It's unclear whether he'll be used in a set-up or closing capacity. It's a nice problem to have for the Yankees.

Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees and Andrew Miller have agreed to a four-year, $36 million contract.

The deal sets a new record for a non-closing relief pitcher. Miller was one of the most dominant relievers in baseball this past season, posting a 2.02 ERA with 103 strikeouts and 17 walks over 62 1/3 innings between the Red Sox and Orioles. The southpaw will form a potent late-inning one-two punch with Dellin Betances, who might take over the closer role if David Robertson ends up signing elsewhere.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that teams expect free agent left-hander Andrew Miller to make a decision on Friday.

Sherman adds that the Yankees are willing to give Miller four years as long as the average annual value is more limited. Still, it's believed that he's likely to land a four-year deal approaching $40 million, which would be the record for a non-closing reliever. The Astros are not considered likely to sign Miller, so the Yankees appear to the be the strong frontrunner at this time.
Dec 5 - 8:54 AM

A source tells Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle that the Astros are not likely to sign Andrew Miller.

The Astros were believed to be one of the few teams with serious interest in the left-hander, but Drellich says Miller doesn't appear to be within their reach. That is because he's expected to command a four-year deal with the dollar amount coming close to $40 million. The Yankees have to be considered the frontrunners for Miller at this point, with a decision likely in the coming days.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports Andrew Miller is expected to sign somewhere in the next few days.

Heyman also said the Yankees are "battling another team or two in a very limited field" for Miller's services. Wherever he signs, Miller will likely get the richest deal for a non-closer reliever -- he's expected to get a four-year deal that will approach $40 million. Calling him a "non-closer" may be a bit of a misnomer, though, as Miller will likely get save chances if he's making that kind of money. Wherever that may be, it appears we'll know soon enough.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post hears that the Yankees are seriously interested in Andrew Miller, but do not want to give him four years.

This is the same stance that the team is taking with David Robertson. They don't appear comfortable in giving either Robertson or Miller a "Papelbon deal" of four years, $50 million-plus. If Miller is serious about that contract length and those dollars, the Dodgers are a strong candidate in the mix.
Dec 3 - 3:12 PM

According to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Yankees, Red Sox and Astros are showing "strong interest" in Andrew Miller.

It had been previously reported (though denied by Miller's agent) that the Red Sox might have bowed out on Miller, but Rosenthal's sources told him that the team was still interested. The Yankees and Astros have been rumored landing spots for the reliever depending on what happens with Yankee closer David Robertson, who the Astros have also shown interest in.
Dec 3 - 2:04 PM

According to Andrew Miller's agent, Mark Rodgers, the Red Sox are still in the hunt for his client.

There have been some reports that the Red Sox are out of the running for Miller, but Rodgers writes that it's "not true." Still, it's unclear whether they are willing to go as far in years (some suggest he could get a four-year deal) or dollars as other teams. Cafardo writes that up to 10 teams are still in the mix, including the Yankees, Blue Jays, Dodgers, and Tigers. Rodgers said last Friday that his client is moving closer to a decision.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman writes that the Yankees appear more likely to give a four-year deal to Andrew Miller than David Robertson.

Part of his is about cost, as Robertson could potentially reach or break Jonathan Papelbon's record $50 million deal for a reliever. Miller should also do very well in free agency, but Heyman writes that he's more likely to end up in the $8-11 million range per season. The southpaw also wouldn't cost the Yankees a draft pick, but they would receive a compensatory draft pick if Robertson signs elsewhere. If the Yankees sign Miller and Robertson walks, Dellin Betances would presumably take over as closer.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Dodgers are also in "serious pursuit" of Andrew Miller.

Olney used the same words just a few hours ago to describe the Yankees' interest in Miller. The 29-year-old left-hander is poised to strike it rich this winter with so many deep-pocketed teams making him a target. Miller had a terrific 2.02 ERA and 103/17 K/BB ratio in 62 1/3 innings this past season between Boston and Baltimore. He'd likely be a setup man in Los Angeles for closer Kenley Jansen.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Yankees are in "serious pursuit" of Andrew Miller.

It's probably going to take a four-year contract to land the left-hander, but that apparently won't deter the Yanks, who need to replace David Robertson. Dellin Betances would presumably be promoted to closer in New York and Miller would take over his flexible seventh- and eighth-inning role. Miller, 29, posted a dominant 2.02 ERA and 103/17 K/BB ratio in 62 1/3 frames this past season between Boston and Baltimore.

The agent for free agent southpaw Andrew Miller reports that Miller is moving closer to making a decision as to where he'll play in 2015.

There have been at least 10 teams interested in Miller this winter, which means that he shouldn't have any trouble finding the lucrative four-year deal that he's looking for. The Red Sox are very interested in a reunion and are one of the many teams with their hat in the ring here.
Nov 29 - 1:37 PM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that it's "increasingly likely" Andrew Miller will get a four-year contract.

Morosi says that Miller "already has multiple offers of at least three years," so it appears a team might have to guarantee a fourth year to push them over the top. He also notes that Miller is expected to eclipse the previous high-water mark for a reliever with no closing experience, which currently sits at $6 million per season. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported last week that Miller was receiving interest from 22 teams.
Nov 21 - 3:53 PM

Sportsnet's Jeff Blair reports that the Blue Jays are being "very aggressive" in their pursuit of Andrew Miller.

Blair was told this by a source from a team that's competing with the Jays and others for Miller's services. Miller would likely close with Toronto with Casey Janssen expected to depart as a free agent. The left-hander doesn't have experience in the ninth inning but nonetheless is going to be paid like the elite reliever he is.
