Andrew Miller has left today’s game after taking a line drive off the right hand. Miller’s reaction was to immediately walk off, fling his cap into the dugout and slam his glove – does. not. sound. good.
Andrew Miller was just drilled on the right wrist and immediately walked off the mound and into the dugout. He slammed his glove down.
The way Andrew Miller IMMEDIATELY walked into the dugout holding his wrist, it’s safe to say that this is a big concern. Stay tuned.
Important to say this again. Miller took liner off his RIGHT hand/arm, not the left.
Only a few days away from Opening Day, this injury comes at a terrible time with Chapman missing more than a month of the season while on suspension. Miller was to resume the closer duties with Chapman was away from the team giving Girardi a trusted arm in the 9th. Outside the Big 3 in the back of the bullpen, the Yankees have many unknown and unproven guys that will need to step up in a big way if this injury is significant.
We will update the post as more information becomes available.
