The New York Yankees have told closer Andrew Miller that he will not be traded, seemingly ending the swirling rumors that he was linked to a trade with the Chicago Cubs. MLB.com’s Barry M. Bloom broke the news Sunday.

Miller said he was well aware of the trade rumors around him. However, he told MLB.com that the top Yankees brass told him he isn’t going to be moved.

“The media has been throwing a few things out there, but I’ve had reassurances from them at the times I’ve talked to them that it’s something that hasn’t been discussed or planned for or anything like that,” he said. “I think that’s kind of nice.

“But I have no trade protection. I’m at the mercy of that what they decide to do. I get it. It’s a business. I want to be here. I want to play here. But it’s impossible to avoid sometimes.”

Miller didn’t exactly say who talked to him, but explained he had run into executives who have told him don’t believe what you hear.

Miller has split the closer role with Aroldis Chapman this season. He has seven saves and a 1.51 ERA.
