Cleveland reliever Andrew Miller handling flexible role, high-leverage situations
Until further notice, Andrew Miller’s role in the Indians’ bullpen isn’t changing. He hasn’t been inserted as the Indians’ closer, and he hasn’t been relegated to an eighth-inning role. It’s a nod to the growing trend in baseball that a set inning for the relievers at the back end of the bullpen might not be the best way to go about things every night.
Adam Warren deserves a crack at the Yankees’ rotation
While the Yankees seem content to cycle between Green, Severino, and perhaps Luis Cessa, the best candidate to fill that role currently resides in the bullpen in the form of Adam Warren. He has been a victim of his ability to succeed wherever Joe Girardi and the Yankees see fit to pitch him.

There are some baseball players that are just meant to play in one uniform. New York Yankee right-hander, Adam Warren, fits that bill. Since rejoining the Yankees on July 27 in the deal that sent flame throwing closer, Aroldis Chapman, to the Chicago Cubs, Warren has pitched seven scoreless innings and looked every bit the pitcher he was during his first stint with the team.
Always in demand, Indians lefty Andrew Miller nears another October run
Andrew Miller’s World Series ring has never really been worn, and he may keep it out of sight until he’s “one of those old guys who has a World Series ring stashed in his closet.” He cherishes the ring earned for his relief work with the 2013 Boston Red Sox, but since he missed out on postseason glory due to a foot injury, he’s not inspired to don it on a whim.
Andrew Miller: ‘Kind of weird’ to be back at Yankee Stadium
Wearing an Indians uniform, dressing in the visiting clubhouse at Yankee Stadium and sitting in the left-center field bullpen wasn’t what Andrew Miller anticipated when he inked a four-year deal worth $36 million with the Yankees prior to the 2015 season.
Andrew Miller Finds Easy Transition From Yankees to Indians
During parts of two seasons with the Yankees, reliever Andrew Miller kept with tradition and stayed clean-shaven. When he returned to the Bronx on Friday as a member of the Cleveland Indians, Miller sported a noticeable swath of facial hair, looking more relaxed. Miller is no longer distracted by the trade rumors and role changes that shadowed him with the Yankees.

For Kyle Seager, power was needed for him to find a role with Mariners
Kyle Seager hit his 20th home run of the year on Tuesday. That gave him his fifth season with 20 or more homers, something that only five others – Ken Griffey Jr., Jay Buhner, Edgar Martinez, Raul Ibanez and Alex Rodriguez – have done in Mariners history. “That’s definitely an accomplishment for me. It’s something I didn’t think I would be able to do."
Kyle Seager is baseball’s unsung hero
He’s a big reason the Seattle Mariners have been in contention all season, and he will be a big reason for their success if they make it to the playoffs. I am of course talking about Kyle Seager. His reputation preceded him before his call-up to the big club in 2011. He was an athletic, glove-first guy who could draw walks.
