Yanks' Girardi on naming a closer: 'It's not on the top of my priority list'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Yankees manager Joe Girardi indicated Monday the team might use Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller in the closer's role rather than having one of them handle the job full-time.

"In years past we had a pretty defined closer so there was never a question,'' Girardi said, per ESPN. "In looking at the candidates that we have, neither one of them have really closed. And we could still name a closer, but it’s not on the top of my priority list.''

Miller, who was signed in the offseason, has just one save over nine MLB seasons. Betances also has just one save in 78 career appearances.

"To me, the important thing is they understand if we don’t name a closer, in the later innings which guys are theirs,'' Girardi said. "In your mind you can start preparing in the sixth, sort of like a closer would, these are the guys I'm going to face. I think the most important thing is communication, and they understand you’re role isn't clearly defined as you’re the eighth inning guy and you’re the ninth inning guy, but your role is clearly defined when you’re going to pitch.''


Yankees' Dellin Betances scheduled for back-to-back appearances


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2015) Dellin Betances will make his first back-to-back appearances of the spring on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Betances is competing with Andrew Miller to become the Yankees' closer.  

"It'll be nice to go back to back, get out there," Betances said per MLB.com's Bryan Hoch. "I'm starting to feel stronger. Every time out, I feel a little stronger."


Yankees manager Joe Girardi waiting on naming team's closer


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2015) After pitchers Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller each threw an inning on Saturday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi has yet to name a closer.

The debate as to who will earn the role is still up in the air. But neither is expected to be named the closer at this point.

"I think it's affected by possibly losing someone out of your bullpen to a starting role. That changes things. So we've got to figure that out first, then we put the rest of it together," Girardi said. "I won't make that decision until really late, because to me, that's not one of my pressing decisions."


Yankees closer candidates not viewing spring as competition


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/8/2015) Yankees closer candidates Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller could end up splitting the role when the season begins, but neither is feeling the heat of a competition this spring, reports MLB.com.

"I don't think either of us are treating it that way," Miller said. "I've got my own problems. I'm trying to figure out where the ball is going and make sure I'm sharp. That stuff always takes care of itself. It's the least of my concerns. I want to go out and pitch well, and if I pitch well, I'll be happy. Wherever that is, it's fine with me."

Manager Joe Giradi has confidence in both to get the job done. Both pitched scoreless innings on Sunday.

"I don't really think we're going to have any doubts that both of them can do it, so I don't really know if there's anything that we need to see," Girardi said. "I think we have to see how the bullpen in our mind shapes up and what, as an organization, we decide to do. I'm not really too worried about their stuff."


Yankees' Andrew Miller 'happy' with scoreless inning Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Yankees pitcher Andrew Miller made his Grapefruit League debut wednesday, giving up one hit in a scoreless inning against the Phillies while striking out two.

"I'm really happy with the way I was throwing the ball," Miller said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I'm not too concerned with things right now. It could have been absolutely horrendous and there's nothing to worry about. It's just going out there and getting it going. I felt my breaking ball was really good, so it's always nice to come back and realize it's still there after the offseason."

Miller signed a four-year, $36-million deal with the Yankees this offseason after going 5-5 with a 2.02 ERA and 103:17 K:BB ratio in 62 1/3 innings.


Yankees' Andrew Miller doesn't care about his role


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2015) 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
(2/21/2015) 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
(1/14/2015) 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
(12/8/2014) 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
(12/5/2014) 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.

Yankees more likely to sign Andrew Miller than David Robertson


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) It appears the Yankees are more likely to sign free agent reliever Andrew Miller than re-sign closer David Robertson, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Robertson could land a deal more lucrative than Jonathan Papelbon's four-year, $50 million contract, which is a record for a reliever. While Robertson is likely to make in the range of $12 million to $14 million per season, Miller could be in the range of $8 million to $11 million, which appears to be more to the Yankees liking.

Report: Free agent Miller could be ready for full-time closer gig


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) Free agent reliever Andrew Miller has slowly worked his way up the relief ladder the last few seasons and developed into one of the premier setup men in 2014. Now, it seems he might finally be ready for his first chance at being a full-time closer, according to ESPN.

"I think Andrew's evolution in the bullpen and his numbers this year fortify the belief in baseball that he's a closer-in-waiting -- and maybe the time for waiting is over,'' Miller's agent, Mark Rodgers, said Tuesday.

Rodgers declined to comment on potential suitors for Miller, but several contending teams are looking for late-inning relievers. Miller had his first career save and a career-high 22 holds in 2014 pitching for the Red Sox and Orioles.

"For us, there are no demands or expectations on what role it's going to be,'' Rodgers said. "A team that signs Andrew Miller is a team that has put a premium on its bullpen -- because no matter how the bullpen is, he's going to make it better.''
