FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: YANKS AND ANDREW MILLER AT ODDS OVER HOW TO PROCEED WITH WRIST

After a chip fracture was discovered on his right wrist after taking a batted ball off the bone during his exhibition outing on Wednesday, New York Yankees closer Andrew Miller is vowing to "tough it out" and pitch through the ailment.  The Yankees on the other hand want Miller to get whatever corrective measure is needed so that he will be 100 percent healthy for the crucial second half of the season.  With Aroldis Chapman suspended until early May, teh closing gig now falls to Dellin Betances who is obviously more than capable in doing the job given his 100-mph heat.  Now as far as Miller, he will have to give in to what the Yankees want him to do as he is their employee and that means either a long wait on the DL for the chip to heal or a surgical procedure to remedy it.  Either way, Miller may not even get one save this season in that he would likely return once Chapman's suspension in through.  While we wouldn't cut him loose yet, Miller is looking like a sizable bust.
