Andrew Miller stifled the Blue Jays' attempt at a comeback, recording the final out of Tuesday's 6-3 win to earn his 11th save.
David Carpenter took the mound at the start of the ninth with a 6-0 lead, but the Jays were all over him, scoring three times on a home run, a walk, a ground-rule double, and a single. Miller came in with a runner on first base and two outs to put out the fire. He walked pinch-hitter Jose Bautista to bring the winning run to the plate, but got Devon Travis to fly out to end the game at long last. Miller is 11-for-11 in save chances with a 23/7 K/BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings on the season. May 5 - 10:45 PM

Andrew Miller worked a scoreless ninth inning against the Red Sox on Sunday, protecting a three-run advantage and picking up his 10th save of the season.

It wasn't as easy as most of the hard-throwing southpaw's save chances have been this year, as a pair of walks put the tying run at the plate in the form of David Ortiz, but Miller was able to escape unscathed. He still has yet to allow a run in 13 1/3 innings on the season and sports a dazzling 23/6 K/BB ratio.

Andrew Miller picked up his eighth save of the season with a clean ninth inning as the Yankees topped the Rays 4-1 on Monday.

Miller allowed a leadoff single to Evan Longoria, but was able to see his way out of the inning without any further damage, culminating with a strikeout of Jake Elmore. Miller continues to excel in the ninth inning for the Yankees, going 8-for-8 in save chances with a spotless ERA and a 17/4 K/BB ratio in 9 1/3 innings.

Andrew Miller slammed the door on the Mets on Sunday night, preserving a two-run advantage to earn his seventh save of the season.

At this point, Miller is the Yankees closer and Dellin Betances has been relegated to eighth inning duty. Miller has been simply outstanding in pinstripes, he hasn't allowed a run in 8 1/3 innings while posting an absurd 16/4 K/BB ratio and converting all seven of his save chances.
Apr 26 - 10:55 PM

Andrew Miller worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his sixth save, closing out the Yankees' 2-1 victory over the Tigers on Thursday.

Miller struck out Miguel Cabrera, got Victor Martinez to ground out, then struck out J.D. Martinez to end the contest. That's about as tough as it gets and Miller breezed through it. Miller maintains his flawless ERA, is now 6-for-6 in save opportunities, and sports a 15/4 K/BB ratio in 7 1/3 innings.
Apr 23 - 4:55 PM

Andrew Miller recorded just one out to earn his fifth save of the season on Tuesday facing the Tigers.

Chris Martin started the ninth inning with a 5-1 lead and got two quick outs. After allowing a single to J.D. Martinez and a double to Yoenis Cespedes, however, Miller had to be brought in. Miller walked Nick Castellanos to load the bases, then walked Rajai Davis to force in a run. With the tying run on base, the lefty was able to fan Jose Iglesias to end the game. Miller is 5-for-5 in save chances with a 13/4 K/BB ratio in 6 1/3 innings so far this season.
Apr 21 - 11:17 PM

Andrew Miller worked around a leadoff double with three consecutive strikeouts to earn his fourth save of the season in Sunday's win against the Rays.

Protecting a two-run lead in the ninth inning, Miller allowed a leadoff double to Ryan Brett, but bounced back to strike out Rene Rivera, Logan Forsythe, and Steven Souza to end the contest. Miller remains unscored upon with a 12/2 K/BB ratio in six innings.
Apr 19 - 4:54 PM

Andrew Miller notched a four-out save in Friday's win over the Rays.

Miller came on with two outs in the bottom of the eighth and got Rene Rivera to fly out before giving up a leadoff infield single to Logan Forysthe in the ninth. However, he struck out the next three batters he faced to lock down the win. Miller now has three saves on the year and has allowed just one hit over five scoreless innings to go along with a 9/2 K/BB ratio. Dellin Betances has shown better control in his last two outings, but Miller still looks like the favorite for saves in this bullpen.
Apr 17 - 11:33 PM

Andrew Miller recorded three strikeouts en route to a five-out save in Monday's win over the Orioles.

Miller entered the game with a runner on first and one out in the eighth inning. He struck out Manny Machado and Jonathan Schoop to end the frame. In the ninth, he struck out Everth Cabrera and got Caleb Joseph to fly out. He then hit Delmon Young with a pitch but got Steve Pearce to ground out to end the ballgame. Miller is 2-for-2 in save chances so far with six strikeouts and two walks in 3 2/3 innings.
Apr 13 - 10:30 PM

Andrew Miller pitched a perfect ninth inning against the Blue Jays for a save on Wednesday.

Miller looked better than Dellin Betances all spring, and he should remain the favorite for saves in the Yankees pen for at least a little while longer. He should be a lock tomorrow anyway; it's hard to imagine the Yankees pitching Betances again after he threw 32 pitches tonight.
Apr 8 - 10:44 PM

Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated Saturday that both Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller could see save opportunities during the season.

While most believe that Betances will operate primarily in the ninth-inning, it may make sense to use Miller in that role depending on the opposition due up that inning, and Girardi is seemingly open to the idea. While it's a nice theory, most managers prefer relievers to have clearly defined roles, and the strongest likelihood is that Betances operates in the ninth with Miller working in the eighth.
Feb 21 - 3:33 PM

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.
