Yanks Willing to Move on From Robertson?
The Yankees appear willing to move on from closer David Robertson, according to Jon Heyman of CBS. Instead, they may have their sights on left-handed setup extraordinaire Andrew Miller.
Robertson's camps seeks a four-year deal for the closer, with a total contract value potentially exceeding $50 million. The Yankees are willing to go four years for a reliever, but they think they can get Miller for $8-9 million a year instead.
Miller had 14.9 strikeouts/9 innings a year ago. He had 103 strikeouts in 62 innings last year while playing for the Red Sox and Orioles.
If Robertson does leave New York, we can only speculate that Dellin Betances would be the next closer for the Pinstripes.
