Yankees' Andrew Miller doesn't care about his role
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) Yankees reliever Andrew Miller doesn't care about his role, according to MLB.com.
Miller is expected to compete for the closer position, but doesn't really care where he slots in. "Honestly, my goal is not to show [manager Joe Girardi] that I can close," Miller said. "It's to show Joe that I can get an out whenever they need it."
Miller has saved just one game in his career, but that's not going to hold him back. "I've shown that I can pitch in big situations. I proved a lot to myself personally last year down the stretch," Miller said. "I think playoff games and some of the situations I came in are probably more stressful than saving a game in May, I don't know. But I feel I've really improved."
The 29-year-old Miller posted a 2.02 ERA over 62 1/3 innings last season. He signed a four-year, $36 million deal with the club during the offseason.
Yankees' Girardi could see Betances, Miller splitting closer role
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/21/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi has a hole to fill at closer without David Robertson on the roster. He is open to utilizing both Dellin Betances and newly signed Andrew Miller in the role to begin the year.
"I think you could do that," Girardi said. "I think you have to see how people react when they’re in the situation. I feel good about both of those guys doing it. A number of guys down there, I think, are more than capable of closing."
He is expecting a battle throughout spring training to figure out who will take control of the role.
"There are a lot of questions about how it’s actually going to mold together," Girardi said.
Yankees' Steinbrenner: 'We're not going to be afraid to spend money'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/14/15) Yankees principal owner Hal Steinbrenner indicated Wednesday more offseason moves for New York could be coming, despite general manager Brian Cashman being active this offseason, according to MLB.com. The Yankees have already re-signed third baseman Chase Headley and infielder Stephen Drew, signed reliever Andrew Miller and traded for shortstop Didi Gregorius.
"It's not over until it's over. We still have a full month before spring training," Steinbrenner said. "We're always going to continue to improve. I'm not putting a cap on it. We've certainly filled some holes that we had. We'll keep going for the next few weeks."
Steinbrenner said he wants to get New York back to the postseason while trying to keep the the payroll in the same range, but left the door open to perhaps target one of the top free-agent players still available. Starting pitchers Max Scherzer and James Shields are two of the top names still on the free-agent market.
"[But] having said that, we're still the New York Yankees, all you guys know that," Steinbrenner said. "We know what the fans expect. We know what the town expects. We're not going to be afraid to spend money."
Andrew Miller: I'm 'fine' with not closing for Yankees
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/8/14) Newly acquired reliever Andrew Miller told the reporters on Monday he's "fine" with not closing for the Yankees, but would excel in the role, if asked, per the Journal News. The left-handed reliever signed a four-year deal worth 36 million with New York last week.
Miller indicated that David Roberton's name did not come up during his negotiations with the Yankees. Robertson is still a free agent, and if he were to re-sign with the Yankees, both pitchers would be in the mix for the position.
"(The closer role) came up very briefly during negotiations when the Yankees were feeling me out to see what my priorities were," Miller said. "I've told everybody so far, and it's the truth, it really wasn't a priority for me. It was certainly something that certain teams expected me to come in and do. But for me, my answer for them was that I have no ego in it, and I'm ready to fill whatever role is necessary or fits best for the team. My goal is to win. If I'm handing the ball off to somebody, whoever that may be, I have no problem with that."
Yankees land lefty reliever and 2014 phenom Andrew Miller
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/5/14) The Yankees have won the Andrew Miller Sweepstakes, CBSSports.com Insider Jon Heyman has confirmed. The YES Network originally reported that the team has signed the free agent left-handed reliever to a four-year deal totaling $36 million.
Miller was lights-out for Boston and the playoff-bound Orioles in 2014. He yielded just 33 hits in 62 1/3 innings with 17 walks and 103 strikeouts.
The signing of Miller might preclude the Yankees from bringing back free agent closer David Robertson. But Miller and 2014 breakthrough reliever Dellin Betances will provide a powerful 1-2 punch in the bullpen if they continue to perform as well as they did last year.
