|Astros | HOU serious about acquiring closer|
Sat, 21 Nov 2015 12:18:26 -0800
The Houston Astros have been described as being "hell-bent to get a closer," according to teams that have had discussions with them this offseason. They have reportedly expressed interest in Cincinnati Reds CL Aroldis Chapman, New York Yankees CL Andrew Miller, Philadelphia Phillies CL Ken Giles and Tampa Bay Rays CL Brad Boxberger, in addition to considering several free-agent options.
Fantasy Tip: This appears to be bad news for incumbent Astros CL Luke Gregerson, who would slide back into an eighth-inning role if Houston acquires a closer. Gregerson went 7-3 with a 3.10 ERA and 31 saves in 64 appearances last season but ranked 24th in strikeout ratio among the 33 MLB relievers who saved at least 15 games in 2015, with 8.7 strikeouts per nine innings.

|Yankees | NY willing to deal Andrew Miller|
Tue, 10 Nov 2015 09:45:11 -0800
Fantasy Tip: With Dellin Betances a fine closing option for the Yankees, Miller could be expendable. Miller had a fine year closing out games for the Yanks, but a trade to another club wouldn't necessarily ensure that he'd keep the same job. Betances would receive a big bump in value if Miller leaves the Bronx.

|Yankees | Andrew Miller honored|
Wed, 28 Oct 2015 17:25:33 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Miller went 3-2 with a 2.04 ERA in 60 regular-season games, successfully converting 36 of 38 save opportunities. He walked 20 and struck out 100 batters over 61 2/3 innings. Miller should be one of the first relievers selected in fantasy baseball drafts next season.

|Yankees | Andrew Miller earns save Friday|
Fri, 14 Aug 2015 19:50:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This game marked the first time in three outings where Miller didn't give up at least one run. He has a 4.50 ERA through six appearances this month but does not appear to be in danger of losing the closer's job.

|Yankees | Andrew Miller notches 21st save|
Tue, 21 Jul 2015 19:38:31 -0700
New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller recorded a strikeout without allowing a hit or run in the ninth inning to record his 21st save of the season during the Yankees' 3-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, July 21.
Fantasy Tip: Miller now has four saves since returning from a forearm injury Wednesday, July 8, as he has picked up right where he left off. He remains a high-end closer due to his stingy ratios (1.44 ERA, 2.13 FIP, 0.70 WHIP and 14.4 K/9).

|Yankees | Andrew Miller unavailable Thursday|
Thu, 09 Jul 2015 10:30:21 -0700
New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller will be unavailable in a save situation against the Oakland Athletics Thursday, July 9, according to manager Joe Girardi. Miller threw 30 pitches in his first game back off the disabled list while converting the save Wednesday, July 8. However, Girardi said Miller could be available for back-to-back outings as soon as this weekend.
Fantasy Tip: Miller allowed a two-run home run and showed some rust while earning the save against the A's last night. He's the unquestioned closer for the Yanks, but Dellin Betances should still be owned in all formats, as he remains one of the best relievers in baseball regardless of role.

|Yankees | Andrew Miller activated from DL|
Wed, 08 Jul 2015 15:23:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Miller will return to the closer role, and he stands to also return to being a top-tier closer. He posted 17 saves with a 1.03 ERA, 1.90 FIP and 0.68 WHIP over 26 1/3 innings with 43 strikeouts before the injury. His return bumps Dellin Betances to a set-up role. However, Betances is worth holding in all formats, as he'll likely add up a few more saves and wins with excellent ratios and all kinds of strikeouts the rest of the way.

|Yankees | Andrew Miller likely back Wednesday|
Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:44:40 -0700
New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller (forearm), who threw a scoreless inning with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Monday, July 6, is likely to be activated from the disabled list before the game Wednesday, July 8, according to manager Joe Girardi. Miller allowed two hits and struck out one in an inning of work Monday. Girardi said Miller will immediately resume his role as the team's closer, with RP Dellin Betances sliding back to the eighth-inning setup role.
Fantasy Tip: Get ready to activate Miller and immediately put him back in your lineups in traditional leagues. Betances should still be owned in all formats even without the save opportunities he was receiving with Miller out.

|Yankees | Andrew Miller to rehab Monday|
Mon, 06 Jul 2015 14:28:20 -0700
New York Yankees RP Andrew Miller (forearm) will make a rehab appearance with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Monday, July 6. It's unlikely he'll be activated from the disabled list any earlier than Wednesday, July 8, even if the Yankees decide he only needs one rehab outing. Miller has been out since June 10 with a strained left forearm.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if Miller will immediately return to the closer role when he's healthy. Dellin Betances continues to do a fine job in relief and while pitching in the ninth inning with Miller out. Both relievers should continue to be owned in all formats regardless of their role in the late innings.
