The New York Yankees may be a team that mixes it up this offseason and they have given indications that they will listen to offers for many of their players, including star closer Andrew Miller, as first reported by Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.

Miler, 30, is in the second year of a four-year, $36 million deal he signed last offseason with the Yankees after spending time with both the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles.

Acquiring Miller wouldn’t be cheap, as he is one of the top closers in all of baseball. If Miller is in fact made available for trade, there would be plenty of teams that would be interested in his services.

If Miller is traded, it’s very likely Dellin Betances would step in as the teams closer, barring a trade for a player such as Craig Kimbrel or Aroldis Chapman.

Among the teams looking for a closer, via Heyman: Detroit Tigers, Arizona Diamondbacks, Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays. In free agency last offseason, the Blue Jays and Astros were among the teams interested in signing Miller.

With the Yankees looking for a big return in exchange for Miller, it’s hard to see a deal actually going through, but it isn’t impossible.

    Trading Miller would be a mistake of epic proportions. We need to add pitching, not deplete it.
