Andrew Miller struck out two in a scoreless inning to record his 12th save of the season Tuesday in a win over the Twins.

It was Miller getting the save chance over Cody Allen in this one, and things started off poorly when Logan Schafer lead off the ninth with an infield single. Miller then rebounded with a strikeout, lineout and flyout to nail down the one-run win. Out of the Tribe's last four saves, Miller and Allen have two apiece as Terry Francona continues to play matchups.

Andrew Miller threw a scoreless ninth against the A's on Monday for a save in a 1-0 game.

Cody Allen got the save Sunday and Miller hadn't pitched in four days, so it made all kinds of sense to go to Miller after Carlos Carrasco pitched eight scoreless innings tonight. Allen still looks like the favorite for saves in Cleveland.

Andrew Miller recorded his first save as a member of the Indians on Saturday, striking out a pair over a scoreless ninth inning to preserve a three-run lead against the Yankees.

Miller allowed a leadoff single to Brett Gardner, then whiffed Jacoby Ellsbury and Mark Teixeira before retiring Brian McCann on a ground ball. The hard-throwing southpaw now boasts a 1.50 ERA and 0.77 WHIP on the season and is exactly the type of lock-down option the Indians needed at the back end of their bullpen.
Aug 6 - 4:13 PM

Andrew Miller entered Thursday's game against the Twins in the sixth inning and got four outs for his 17th hold.

Manager Terry Francona hadn't committed to Miller as a closer since his acquisition from the Yankees, but it's still surprising just how early he was brought in today. That said, he was a good call from Francona, who used Miller to retire the top of the Twins order in a 4-2 game. The Indians went on to win 9-2, so Cody Allen was never used. Since Francona seemingly intends to play matchups with his two late-game aces, Allen looks like he might be the favorite for saves for now.

Indians acquired LHP Andrew Miller from the Yankees in exchange for OF Clint Frazier, LHP Justus Sheffield and RHPs Ben Heller and J.P. Feyereisen.

It's a lot to give up, but Miller is arguably the best reliever in the game and the Indians are obviously going for it this season. The left-hander is making $9 million this season and under contract for the same amount in 2017 and 2018, as well. Cody Allen will move into a setup role and Dellin Betances will take over as the Yankees' new closer.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Indians have acquired Andrew Miller from the Yankees.

Interestingly, Rosenthal also adds that it's possible the Tribe will get both Jonathan Lucroy and Miller but it's also possible the deal for Miller might signify a snag with the Lucroy trade. ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Yankees will be receiving outfield prospect Clint Frazier, pitching prospect Justus Sheffield and others in the deal. For what it's worth, neither of those prospects were in the reported Lucroy trade. Miller will take over the ninth inning from Cody Allen, who slides into a setup role.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that teams are continuing to have trade discussions with the Yankees about Andrew Miller.

The asking price for Miller remains "very high," Olney says, which is no surprise since they reportedly wouldn't consider dealing the reliever to the Nationals for Lucas Giolito. Olney lists the Astros and Cardinals as clubs that have the need and assets to acquire Miller, although it remains to be seen whether they'll willing to meet the asking price.
Jul 31 - 8:19 AM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Nationals, Cardinals, Indians, Rangers and Giants are in on Andrew Miller.

He cautions, however, that the chances of Miller being traded "remain slim." The Yankees remain in the Wild Card hunt and Miller is under control through 2018 relatively cheaply, so it's going to take a whole lot to get them to change their minds about dealing the shutdown reliever.

Andrew Miller struck out two in a scoreless inning of work to earn his ninth save as the Yankees bested the Astros 6-3 on Tuesday.

Miller is now 2-for-2 converting save chances since taking over for the departed Aroldis Chapman. What happens with the Yankees' bullpen will be fascinating to watch over the next few days, as the club seems intent on keeping Miller but would almost certainly deal him for the right return. With a 1.39 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 77/7 K/BB ratio in 45 1/3 innings, he won't come cheap.

Andrew Miller picked up his eighth save Monday with a scoreless ninth against the Astros.

Barring a trade, Miller will finish out the year as the Yankees' closer, making him a top-10 fantasy reliever. He has a 1.42 ERA this season.
Jul 25 - 11:17 PM

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the "Yankees' sense right now" is that Andrew Miller will not be traded ahead of the August 1 deadline.

But that could change over the next couple of days, depending on the offers that come in. New York got a terrific haul for impending free agent Aroldis Chapman on Monday, landing shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres, outfield prospect Billy McKinney, right-hander Adam Warren, and minor league outfielder Rashad Crawford from the Cubs. Miller, under contract through 2018, owns a dominant 1.45 ERA, 0.76 WHIP, and 74/7 K/BB ratio in 43 1/3 innings this season for the fourth-place Yankees.
Jul 25 - 2:49 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Giants are "lingering" in the trade market for Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman.

While Crasnick notes that they are interested in the two Yankee bullpen aces, he adds the caveat that the team "might be out-gunned" by the Cubs and Nationals. In addition to Miller and Chapman, Crasnick relays that they have scouted the Phillies' Jeanmar Gomez and David Hernandez, plus Brewers relievers Will Smith and Jeremy Jeffress.

Andrew Miller is expected to be the Indians' top trade target, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Cleveland's bullpen consists of entirely right-handed arms and the Indians are intrigued by the possibility of using Miller in a setup role. Of course, the Yankees will be inundated with offers for Miller, who figures to be one of the most coveted relievers available at the trade deadline. The Nationals, Rangers and Cubs have all shown interest and more suitors should emerge as August 1 approaches.
Jul 18 - 1:18 PM

Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post reports the Yankees had scouts in Syracuse this weekend.

Syracuse, of course, is home to the Nationals' Triple-A affiliate. Washington has shown keen interest in both Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller and it appears the Yankees are looking for a possible match in the Nationals' minor league system. ESPN's Buster Olney previously said the team would only part with Miller for "the best of the best prospects," and we assume the same goes for Chapman.
