Andrew Miller needed only nine pitches to earn his 21st save and preserve the Yankees' 3-2 victory over the Orioles on Tuesday.

The lefty induced ground outs from J.J. Hardy and Nolan Reimold before striking out Jonathan Schoop to end the game. Miller hasn't exactly been lights out since coming off of the disabled list on July 8, but he's otherwise enjoying a sterling season. He's earned the save in all 21 opportunities with a 1.39 ERA and a 51/11 K/BB ratio in 32 1/3 innings.
Jul 21 - 10:32 PM

Andrew Miller converted his 20th save of the season with a perfect ninth inning in Sunday's win over the Mariners.

Miller was tasked with protecting a one-run lead and did so with ease, getting back-to-back strikeouts before a flyout to end it. The left-hander has been worth every bit of his $9 million salary this season, posting a 1.44 ERA with 50 strikeouts over 31 1/3 innings. He's recorded all 20 of his save chances.
Jul 19 - 4:10 PM

Andrew Miller tossed a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Mariners for his 19th save of the season.

It was his second save since coming off the disabled list. Miller worked around a two-out single to finish off the victory, which was capped by a strikeout of former Yankees farmhand Jesus Montero. The 30-year-old southpaw has a 1.48 ERA and 48/11 K/BB ratio over 30 1/3 innings on the year.
Jul 17 - 10:13 PM

Yankees activated LHP Andrew Miller from the 15-day disabled list.

He missed a month of action with a strained left forearm but felt ready to go after making a rehab appearance on Monday. Miller is expected to regain his job as the Yankees' closer, with Dellin Betances moving back into a setup role.
Jul 8 - 3:36 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that Andrew Miller (forearm) will be activated Wednesday.

Miller allowed two hits and struck out one batter in a scoreless inning Monday in a minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The southpaw has been out for a month with a left forearm strain, but one appearance is all he needed to convince the Yankees that he was ready. Dellin Betances has been handling save chances, but Girardi said that it's likely Miller will be moved back into the closer role upon his return.
Jul 7 - 3:56 PM

Andrew Miller (forearm) allowed two hits in a scoreless inning Monday in his first minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Miller struck out one batter in the inning. He might only need one rehab appearance before being activated. The southpaw has been out for a month with a strained left forearm. Dellin Betances has been handling closing duties during his absence.
Jul 7 - 9:53 AM

Andrew Miller (forearm) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday.

He's slated to throw up to 25 pitches. The Yankees haven't revealed how many rehab appearances Miller will require, but he could just need the one. The reliever has missed nearly a month with a strained left forearm.
Jul 5 - 11:13 AM

Andrew Miller (forearm) threw 30 pitches in a successful bullpen session on Saturday.

The left-hander indicated afterwards that he would like to go out on a minor league rehab assignment, to simulate as close to MLB game speed as possible, before rejoining the bullpen. It's unclear if he'll step right back into the closer's role upon his return, or wind up in some sort of timeshare with Dellin Betances.
Jul 4 - 11:32 AM

Andrew Miller (forearm) threw 20 pitches off a mound Wednesday without issue.

Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said after the workout that there is a possibility Miller returns before the All-Star break. Miller has been out since June 10 with a strained left forearm and Dellin Betances has been perfect so far in four fill-in save opportunities. There's not a clear picture of how this will all shake out.
Jul 1 - 4:22 PM

Andrew Miller (forearm) will play catch on Wednesday.

It will be his first time throwing since he landed on the disabled list nearly two weeks ago with a strained left forearm. Assuming he doesn't encounter any setbacks along the way, Miller is expected to return around mid-July. Dellin Betances has nailed down both of his save chances since Miller went down.
Jun 22 - 4:48 PM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman indicated Thursday that Andrew Miller (forearm) could be sidelined for around a month.

Miller will be shut down completely for the next two weeks before starting a throwing program. Dellin Betances has taken over as the Yankees closer in the meantime, and with as dominant as he has been this season, there's a chance he won't relinquish the role even upon Miller's return.
Jun 11 - 11:50 PM

Yankees placed LHP Andrew Miller on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left forearm.

Miller has a 1.03 ERA, 0.68 WHIP and 17 saves on the year, so it's obviously a huge loss for the Yanks. Dellin Betances will take over as closer in Miller's absence. There's no timetable for his return, as the extent of the injury is still unclear.
Jun 10 - 9:36 PM

Andrew Miller will be placed on the disabled list with a strained muscle in his left forearm.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi made the announcement after Wednesday's loss to the Nationals, adding that Dellin Betances will slide in as the Yankees' regular closer. It's not yet clear how long Miller might be out. A strained forearm comes with a range of recovery timetables. Whatever the case, it's tough news for the Yanks.
Jun 10 - 4:55 PM

Andrew Miller allowed a run in the 11th inning, but still got his 16th save as the Yankees won 5-3 over the Mariners on Tuesday.

Miller allowed a one-out single to Welington Castillo, then hit Austin Jackson with a pitch. After getting Brad Miller to pop up, Miller served up an RBI single to Robinson Cano, putting the tying run on base. The lefty bounced back and struck out Nelson Cruz to end the ballgame. It's only the second time this season Miller has been scored upon. He's 16-for-16 in save chances with a 1.16 ERA and a 37/9 K/BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings.
