According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, Andrew Miller’s agent, Mark Rodgers said today that his client is “moving closer” to a decision on where he’ll sign.

There’s a robust market for Miller at the moment, as Cafardo writes that at least 10 teams are involved. The Red Sox are among them, but the southpaw has also been linked to the Blue Jays and Cardinals. He has reportedly already received multiple three-year offers and is even drawing interest as a closer.

Miller, 29, had a 2.02 ERA with a 103/17 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings this past season between the Red Sox and Orioles.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
