Yankees closer Miller would prefer not to be traded
CLEARWATER, Fla. — Pitcher Andrew Miller wants to stay with the New York Yankees, saying he has no control over trade talks.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman didn’t rule out dealing players such as Miller and left fielder Brett Gardner while speaking at this week’s Winter Meetings in Nashville, Tennessee.
Miller says players ”all want stability” and he hopes he gets it at some point.
Additional bullpen moves by the Yankees are expected following trades this week of relievers Adam Warren and Justin Wilson.
Miller was stellar last season, going 3-2 and converting 36 of 38 save opportunities. He has three seasons remaining on a $36 million, four-year free-agent contract signed in December 2014.
On Thursday, Miller participated in the Steinbrenner family children’s holiday concert and read a book to school students.
