Andrew Miller just finished his first year as the New York Yankees’ closer in 2015. It could also end up being the left-hander’s only season in the Bronx, if the trade price is right.

Yankees Will Take Offers for Miller

Tuesday, Nov. 10

According to Jon Heyman of, the Yankees will not shut the door on any potential trade discussions involving Miller: “The Yankees are willing to entertain trade ideas regarding their excellent reliever Andrew Miller, as was reported Monday on”

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman and other personnel are in Boca Raton, Florida, along with representatives from all 30 teams for the annual general manager meetings, so this is when trade discussions will begin.

However, the wording Heyman used in the report is key. It doesn’t say the Yankees are actively shopping Miller, but they will listen. This doesn’t mean anything is imminent, especially because the report lists seven other closers who are available to some degree. 

One anonymous general manager told Heyman that “everyone’s closer is available,” so the Yankees don’t have a lot of leverage in their negotiations if they were to actively pursue moving Miller. 

Miller signed a four-year deal with the Yankees last winter, posting a 1.90 ERA and 36 saves with 100 strikeouts in 61.2 innings. He’s a key piece of New York’s late-inning relief stable that includes Dellin Betances and Justin Wilson that was so crucial to the team securing a wild-card spot. 

It seems unlikely the Yankees would deal Miller, but Cashman knows he has a strong crop of arms to plug into the ninth inning if he finds an offer to his liking.
