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. Jul 20 - 4:41 PM

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.

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.
Jul 18 - 10:50 AM

Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Andrew Miller is "on the radar" of the Rangers.

The Rangers are looking at both starters and relievers, although Wilson indicates that a reliever is less of a priority. The Yankees have essentially told Miller that they've have to be blown away by an offer in order to consider trading him, so it remains to be seen whether Texas will be willing to offer enough to pry the reliever away.
Jul 17 - 12:31 PM

Addressing trade rumors, Andrew Miller said that "[t]he reason I signed with the Yankees is because they expect to win every year, and I want to be a part of that."

Miller spoke about a potential trade prior to the All-Star Game. The Bombers have reportedly told the lanky southpaw that they would be willing to trade him if they receive a huge package in return. The team is set to play the Red Sox, Orioles and Giants out of the break and should they lose significant ground in that stretch, the odds of a Miller trade figure to increase. The Yankees are 44-44 and 7.5 games back of the AL-East-leading Orioles.
Jul 13 - 6:40 PM

According to Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post, Andrew Miller said Monday that the Yankees have told him that they would be open to deal him if they are blown away.

Miller told Barry M. Bloom of MLB.com earlier this month that the Yankees have reassured him that they don't have any plans to deal him, but clearly they are flexible if the right offer comes along. The southpaw is making $9 million this season and is owed $18 million from 2017-2018, so he has a reasonable contract for any contender if the Yankees decide to sell. Miller owns a 1.37 ERA and 69/6 K/BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings this season.
Jul 12 - 9:04 AM

Barry Bloom of MLB.com reports that the Yankees informed Andrew Miller on Sunday that he will not be traded.

It appears that the star left-hander will remain as part of the Yankees late-inning crew for the remainder of the season. That doesn't mean that Aroldis Chapman won't be going anywhere though, and if he does, Miller could return to the ninth-inning role that he began the season in.
Jul 3 - 8:18 PM

Andrew Miller notched his seventh save of the season with a scoreless frame in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

With Aroldis Chapman unavailable, Miller was called upon to protect a three-run lead and pitched around a one-out double, recording a strikeout along the way. The big lefty holds a 1.06 ERA and absurd 46/3 K/BB ratio over 25 2/3 innings this season. He could wind up closing for a contender down the stretch if the Yankees become sellers.
Jun 7 - 10:14 PM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Giants have discussed internally making a run at acquiring Andrew Miller.

The Giants desperately need a dependable left-handed arm for the back-end of their bullpen, and Miller certainly fits the bill. It's unclear what they would be able to part with to make such a deal work, but Rosenthal speculates that top pitching prospect Tyler Beede could be involved.
Jun 4 - 10:02 PM

Bruce Levine of CBSChicago.com reports that the Cubs "will look at" Andrew Miller as a possible trade target.

General manager Jed Hoyer said last week that the club was actively looking for pitching help. With a roster that has few holes, Levine believes that "a lockdown left-handed setup man would be the ideal addition" for the Cubs' bullpen. Miller would certainly makes sense, as the Yanks figure to trade either him or Aroldis Chapman or possibly both next month if they're not in the playoff hunt. The Cubs certainly have the pieces to get something done if that's the direction they decide to go. Miller is making $9 million this season and is owed the same amount in 2017 and 2018.
Jun 3 - 1:10 PM

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.
Apr 22 - 10:29 PM

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.
