New York Yankees RPs Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances will pitch the ninth and eighth innings, respectively, next season, according to manager Joe Girardi. RPs James Pazos and Jacob Lindgren are candidates to fill the seventh-inning role, according to Girardi and general manager Brian Cashman.
Fantasy Tip: The Yankees traded relievers Adam Warren to the Chicago Cubs, and Justin Wilson to the Detroit Tigers, so there is an opening in the bullpen to help transition from the starter to the powerhouse one-two punch in the eighth and ninth innings. Miller is an elite closer entering the 2016 season, and Betances pitches in enough high-leverage situations to warrant a roster spot in the majority of seasonal leagues, and both strikeout batters at a high-end rate. Pazos and Lindgren are not options in yearly formats at this pint.
