Mets Have Not Ruled Out Andrew Miller

According to Mike Puma of the NY Post, the New York Mets have not ruled out signing lefty Andrew Miller even after agreeing to terms on a three-year, $30 million deal with righty Jeurys Familia.

Puma does note though that the Mets do have some concerns over the 33-year old’s health issues. Miller is coming off an injury plagued season, in which he had three separate trips to the disabled list.

From 2014-2017, the lefty was one of the most dominant relievers in the game. During that span he didn’t post an ERA over 2.04 and finished in the top-10 in AL Cy-Young voting twice. However last season was a much different story. The injuries limited him to just 34 innings, and he posted a 4.24 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 45 strikeouts.

When asked Wednesday if he feels Miller will bounce back in 2019, Indians manager Terry Francona told reporters, “He’ll be fine. I hope he goes to the National League. That’s how confident I am.”

Puma also notes that the Mets are a bit concerned over Miller’s workload coupled with his price tag, as the team does have other areas in need of improvement, which could make a deal difficult.
