Andrew Miller converted his fifth save of the season with a perfect ninth inning in Monday's win over the Rangers.
He didn't strike anyone one -- which is a rarity for Miller -- but he needed just eight pitches to retire the Rangers in order. Miller is unscored upon over nine innings this season and boasts a 15/0 K/BB ratio. The Yankees' closer job is in good hands until Aroldis Chapman returns from suspension. Apr 25 - 11:10 PM

Andrew Miller remains one of the best in the business, striking out a pair in a perfect ninth inning to pick up save number four in Friday’s 6-3 win over the Rays.

Miller is borderline unhittable these days. He’s striking out 65.2 percent of the batters he faces… with zero walks. The only damage against him has been two singles in seven innings. He owns a 0.00 ERA and a silly -1.25 FIP. That negative FIP is not a typo, either. It’s too bad that Miller’s likely to lose the ninth inning once Aroldis Chapman returns from his suspension because Miller has made major-league hitters look like little leaguers all month.

Andrew Miller converted his second save of the season with a perfect ninth inning in Tuesday's victory over the Blue Jays.

Miller needed just 12 pitches to record a pair of strikeouts and a groundout to preserve the one-run win. The big left-hander is unscored upon in his three appearances this season and has struck out six over three innings. He'll continue to serve as the Yankees' closer until Aroldis Chapman returns from suspension.
Apr 12 - 10:59 PM

Andrew Miller recorded a save by protecting a three-run lead against the Astros in his season debut Thursday.

Miller allowed a couple of singles, but he struck out the other three batters he faced. The left-hander is pitching with a chip fracture in his right wrist.
Apr 7 - 7:43 PM

Andrew Miller retired two of the three batters he faced Saturday against the Marlins.

He walked the other. He was replaced before the inning was over, but that appeared to be planned and not because of his wrist issue. Unless the fracture in his wrist becomes more of a problem, he'll get most or all of the save chances until Aroldis Chapman comes back.
Apr 2 - 3:54 PM

The Yankees announced Friday that Andrew Miller has been cleared to pitch with a chip fracture in his non-pitching hand.

It won't impact his pitching at all, but the worry was that it could be difficult for him to field his position. Team doctors gave him the go-ahead on Friday though and it looks as though the hard-throwing southpaw will begin the season in the ninth-inning role for the Bombers while Aroldis Chapman is sidelined. The early-season fantasy appeal of Dellin Betances takes a hit with this news.
Apr 1 - 6:25 PM

According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, Andrew Miller (wrist) wants to "tough it out" and be active for the Yankees on Opening Day.

But team doctors might have a different feeling on the matter. Miller suffered a chip fracture in his right (non-throwing) wrist Wednesday when he was struck by a comebacker during an appearance in a Grapefruit League game. It might be difficult for him to field his position and receive return throws. Dellin Betances would fill in at closer for New York if Miller is forced to open the year on the disabled list. There should be something official by the end of the day Friday.
Mar 31 - 9:47 AM

Andrew Miller's CT scan showed a chip fracture in his right (non-throwing) wrist.

Miller suffered the injury Wednesday when he was struck by a comebacker during a Grapefruit League appearance against the Braves. X-rays showed up negative, but the more precise CT scan revealed something that could cost Miller a chunk of the regular season. Dellin Betances is suddenly a must-have as the Yankees' likely fill-in closer. Aroldis Chapman will be serving a suspension for his offseason domestic violence incident until May 9. Miller is going to visit a specialist on Thursday to formulate a recovery plan.
Mar 30 - 8:09 PM

X-rays turned up negative on Andrew Miller's bruised right wrist.

But he still needs to undergo a CT scan. Miller was struck on his glove-hand wrist by a comebacker Wednesday in the Yankees' exhibition game against the Braves. If the CT scan also comes back negative, the lefty closer should be available for a save opportunity on Opening Day. Miller is holding down the Yankees' ninth-inning job until Aroldis Chapman returns from his month-long suspension.
Mar 30 - 5:37 PM

Andrew Miller has been diagnosed with a bruised right wrist.

But the Yankees won't know the exact severity of the injury until Miller undergoes X-rays and a CT scan back in Tampa. The lefty reliever was struck by a comebacker during Wednesday's Grapefruit League game at the Braves' spring training facility in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Dellin Betances is prepared to fill in at closer for the Yankees if the exams reveal anything serious. Aroldis Chapman will spend the first month of the season on suspension for an offseason domestic violence incident.
Mar 30 - 3:43 PM

Andrew Miller exited Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves after he was hit in the right (non-pitching) wrist/hand area by a comebacker.

Uh oh. Miller immediately walked to the dugout and slammed his glove to the ground. The Yankees will already be without Aroldis Chapman for the first month of the season as he serves his suspension, so Dellin Betances would move into the closer role if Miller needs to miss time. The Yankees should pass along an update soon.
Mar 30 - 2:51 PM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Wednesday that Andrew Miller will "absolutely" be the team's closer during Aroldis Chapman's 30-game suspension.

It's not a big surprise, as Miller was the Yankees' closer when healthy last season while putting up a 2.04 ERA and 36 saves. Chapman won't be eligible to return until May 9, so Miller will function as the team's closer for the first month of the season. Meanwhile, Dellin Betances will serve as a set-up man.
Mar 2 - 9:02 AM

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.

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.
Wed, Dec 9, 2015 01:09:00 PM

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.
