The Cleveland Indians continue to be active at the trade deadline, striking a deal with the New York Yankees for reliever Andrew Miller.
FOX Sports MLB insider Ken Rosenthal reported the move Sunday morning on Twitter.
Miller, who signed with the Yankees as a free agent last season, has a 1.39 ERA and a 0.772 WHIP in 44 appearances this season.
The Indians are sending back four players, including top prospects Justus Sheffield and Clint Frazier, according to ESPN's Buster Olney.
Meanwhile, Cleveland's pending trade for Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy remains up in the air. Rosenthal says the team could be planning to go through with both deals, or that the Lucroy deal could fall apart.
And as noted by @jeffpassan, Lucroy under club control through ’17, Miller through ’18. This isn’t a one-shot deal, if Lucroy approves.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 31, 2016
Lucroy has a limited no-trade clause, which includes the Indians as one of the teams he can turn down, and that has been the apparent hold-up.
The Indians, at 59-42, have a 4.5-game lead over the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central.
