Yankees Deal of Miller Lands Great Haul (AUDIO)
The Yankees made big news on Sunday morning when they traded star closer Andrew Miller to the Indians for four prospects, headlined by outfielder Clint Frazier.
On Monday, the Yankees traded Carlos Beltran and Ivan Nova, signifying a total fire sale, one that has been made necessary by years of overpaying on the open market.
How good was the haul the Yanks got from the Tribe? To discuss we brought in Kyle Glaser of Baseball America. The key to these deals was the fact that the Yanks not only got highly touted prospects, they got prospects who are close to being able to contribute.
Frazier could pair with first-round pick Blake Rutherford and Aaron Judge in a few years to form a strong outfield (not even factoring in the Yanks could land Bryce Harper as a free agent in 2018).
