Yankees' closer Andrew Miller making history with perfect save record

Not long after Alex Rodriguez hit his 660th career home run to break a 2-2 tie Friday night at Fenway Park, Yankees' reliever Andrew Miller came into the game and made some history of his own. With a 1-2-3 ninth inning, Miller became the first pitcher in Yankees history to record nine saves in 23 games, a feat not even Mariano Rivera ever accomplished in his illustrious 19- year career.

Closing role suits Andrew Miller

The beard is long gone, the hair trimmed all the way back and there’s just a wispy brown mustache on the face of Andrew Miller, closer for the Yankees.

He is simply one of the best relievers in all of baseball right now. (Boston Herald)

Dealing Matt Harvey is somehow nearing the sky-high hype

Yankees closer Andrew Miller takes the subway to Yankee Stadium

This past offseason the Yankees spent big on a top free agent reliever, but rather than re-sign incumbent closer David Robertson, they signed Andrew Miller to a four-year, $36 million contract. They saved $10 million and gained a draft pick by replacing Miller with Robertson. Miller has been stellar in pinstripes, going 8-for-8 in save chances with 20 strikeouts in only 11 1/3 innings so far this year. (CBS Sports)
