Indians’ Andrew Miller Forced To Leave Game After Aggravating Knee Injury

Published

on

The Cleveland Indians are again on pins and needles regarding the health of closer Andrew Miller.

Miller threw only seven pitches in the seventh inning on Monday night before leaving the game against the Boston Red Sox, aggravating the patellar tendinitis in his right knee according to ABC News.

Miller, 4-3 with a 1.65 ERA and has 79 strikeouts in 54 2/3 innings this season, seems like he will be headed to the disabled list yet again.

Indians’ manager Terry Francona said that Miller will be evaluated on Tuesday.

“Hope for the best and hope that it’s not a big deal,” Miller said.

“It stinks missing any time. I’ve already missed 12 days or something like that. I don’t want to do it again. We’ll find out more, see how I wake up.”

“That’s not what we were hoping for, but we’ll let the medical people put their heads together and see what they can do” Francona said when speaking to reports about Miller’s injury.

Miller was hoping that he had bounced back from the injury but it reared it’s head again on Monday.

“It was kind of not really crisp the first pitches,” Miller described.

“But the pitch I pulled inside to Mookie, I kind of felt it. And I threw one more and it was the same thing.”

The New York Yankees have a future superstar in Miguel Andujar, a fan favorite, yet they have been constantly linked to rumors of being open to dealing him, despite his huge rookie season.

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.
