The Yankees told reliever Andrew Miller that they would trade him if an offer blew them away, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reported on Monday. The 44-44 Yankees still haven’t committed to selling, but with the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline fast approaching, they will have to commit either way at some point.
Miller, 31, is earning $9 million this season as well as in each of the next two seasons. The lefty has a 1.37 ERA with a 69/6 K/BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings. He’s an All-Star this season for the first time in his 11-year career.
