The San Francisco Giants are looking to upgrade its bullpen before the trade deadline comes around and have had internal discussions about possibly making the New York Yankees an offer for one of their three closers. According to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal, the Giants have talked about possibly bringing in Andrew Miller.
San Francisco is described as a “perfect fit” for Miller. But the Giants might have to unload a top prospect like right-handed pitcher Tyler Beede to acquire him and give some help to the bullpen.
Miller has put together a pretty good season for the Yankees this year. He’s been working on a rotating shift with Aroldis Chapman and Dellin Betances and it’s mostly worked when the Yankees are winning in games. However, New York hasn’t won too many games this season, which is why Miller is being discussed among contending teams like the Giants.
He has an outstanding 1.14 ERA this year along with six saves and an outstanding 16 SO/9.
It’ll be interesting to see whether the Giants will take the bait and trade for Miller even though he will be owed $18 million over the next two seasons.
