It’s not a secret Andrew Miller is on the trade market–in fact every Yankee is simply to prove that Brian Cashman has some sort of roster flexibility. But after hearing the latest rumblings, the Yankees seem more serious about trading Miller, and if they were to package him, it would be in a deal that would bring back multiple players–sort of like the Craig Kimbrel deal.
Jayson Stark of ESPN said he spoke to an executive that thinks the Yankees will move Miller for a big Kimbrel-like package that is built around big-league ready starters. Of course, the Kimbrel trade involved minor league depth for the Padres, but Miller would get the Yankees a front line starter plus possibly a big-league infielder.
While the Yankees don’t really want to move Miller, or any of the Yankees on the big league roster, it could bring back a piece the team could use in the future, and it could put the Yankees in a situation where they would be more likely to compete in the 2016 postseason.
