New York Yankees RPs Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller don't seem too concerned with who will be named a closer in 2015, and manager Joe Girardi isn't worried about naming a ninth-inning guy before opening day. Betances has been considered the favorite this offseason. Girardi plans to use both of them in the late innings, and both relievers said they'll be ready when the phone rings.
Fantasy Tip: Betances was one of the most dominating relievers not in a closing role in 2014, leading many to believe he'll be the guy for the Yanks in the ninth this year. However, Miller was just as dominant in his own right as a lefty specialist, mainly. This could wind up being a closer-by-committee based on matchups in the ninth. Both pitchers are worth drafting for saves in mixed leagues, but be careful not to overvalue Betances with the closing gig in the Bronx cloudy.

New York Yankees RPs Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller will enter spring training with neither having the closer job locked down. The Yankees don't feel like they need to have a choice right now, but manager Joe Girardi would like to have a decision by the end of spring training. MLB.com's Bryan Hoch's guess is that Betances will win the job, with Miller serving as the eighth-inning setup man.
