Indians’ Andrew Miller Heads To DL With Patellar Tendinitis

Published

on

The Cleveland Indians have a tough road ahead of them as the team will be without their electric closer for the 10-days, possibly longer.

On Wednesday, Cleveland placed pitcher Andrew Miller on the 10-day disabled list with patellar tendinitis in his right knee.

In a corresponding move the club called up right-hander Adam Plutki from Triple-A Columbus.

While Miller has had another performance this season but has stuggled as of late with walks.

In the past 19 games Miller has walked 10 batters in 22 2/3 innings which is more than he had all season (9 batters walked in 74 1/3 innings).

As of late the normally dominant Miller has been allowing hits too.

The Indians are hoping that this 10-day stint on the disabled list will be all that Miller needs to get back on track and back to form.

This one, just doesn’t make much sense if the plan is to move Andujar to make room for the likes of Manny Machado.

According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal and Robert Murray, the Yankees are “open to moving” Andjuar via trade, but there is no clear trade path to reference at this time.

This development clearly shows the Yankees desire to sign Machado to a free agent deal.

The Yankees and Mets have also been linked in a potential deal that could see Noah Syndergaard end up in New York, with Andujar on his way out.
