Anthony McCarron of the New York Dailey News is reporting that Andrew Miller has been cleared to pitch after fracturing a bone in his non-pitching hand on a comebacker. The Yankees have Aroldis Chapman serving a 30 game suspension, and Miller will be the closer until his return.
Kirby Yates has nailed down the final bullpen slot for the Yankees according to Jack Curry of the Yes Network. Yates had a spot open up for him when Bryan Mitchell went down with an injury. The Yankees appears set heading into opening day. The Yankees will have the most dominating bullpen in all of baseball when healthy, and when Chapman returns from suspension. A lot like the Royals, they will need starters to make into the sixth to turn games over to their formidable bullpen.
