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. Nov 21 - 9:49 PM

One executive told Jayson Stark of 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.
Oct 28 - 7:28 PM

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.
Sep 30 - 11:34 PM

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

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.
Sep 22 - 11:01 PM

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.
Sep 14 - 10:30 PM

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.

It's the fourth time this season Miller has struck out all three batters in one inning of work. The lefty is 29-for-30 in save opportunities with a 1.90 ERA and a 73/14 K/BB ratio in 47 1/3 innings.
