New York Yankees News: Andrew Miller Could Return Before Red Sox Series


The Yankees biggest mid-season acquisitions will not be from trades this year. Instead, their biggest acquisitions will be getting key players back from the disabled list. While the main talk is when will Jacoby Ellsbury come off the disabled list, the other main player on the disabled list is Yankees closer Andrew Miller.

Andrew Miller was having a career year before going on the disabled list on June 11th. The injury Andrew Miller sustained was a left forearm strain. Miller was 17-for-17 in save opportunities this year with an ERA of 1.03. Even though it was an injury to Andrew Miller’s pitching hand, it should have no effects when Miller does return.

Andrew Miller’s first rehab start is later on tonight, and he will be limited to 25 pitches. He just completed a bullpen session with 30 pitches in total. Since Andrew Miller does not have to build up his arm he may only need one rehab appearance. Joe Girardi is having a wait and see approach with Miller. If Miller looks good, they will bring him up, but if not, he will have another rehab appearance, and will be ready after the all-star game.

"‘We’ll just see how he feels,’ Girardi said. ‘If he feels good, then we’ll have to make a decision.’"

Do you think the Yankees should bring up Andrew Miller before the All-Star break? When Andrew Miller is back should he go right back and be the closer? Let us know by commenting below.
