The Cleveland Indians have acquired top reliever Andrew Miller from the New York Yankees in exchange for prospects, the team announced Sunday.
The Yankees will receive four players from Cleveland, including two of its top prospects, minor league outfielder Clint Frazier and pitcher Justus Sheffield.
Frazier, who currently ranks as the No. 1 player in the Indians’ system, according to MLB.com, was a fifth-round pick in the 2013 draft. Sheffield, the Cleveland’s seventh-best prospect, was taken in the first round of the 2014 draft.
Minor league pitchers Ben Heller and J.P. Feyereisen are also included in the deal.
Miller, who is under contract until 2018, has been among the top reliever in the MLB this season. The 31-year-old has posted a 6–1 record with a 1.39 ERA and nine saves in 44 appearances.
