Alex Rodriguez is a Miller guy.
The team called up reliever James Pazos, who may be holding a spot for closer Aroldis Chapman, who returns next week from a suspension.
Manager Joe Girardi, in an interview on the team’s YES Network, said Chapman would assume the role ahead of Miller, who performed superbly last year in his first season as a closer.
The Yankees avoided using relievers Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller or Aroldis Chapman in their 5-2 win, with Chapman a subject of trade speculation.
The price for Andrew Miller will be higher than the price for Aroldis Chapman, which the Nationals were not willing to pay.
