FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: INDIANS ACQUIRE ANDREW MILLER FROM YANKS

The Cleveland Indians acquired New York Yankees closer Andrew Miller as reported by Fox SPorts' Ken Rosenthal.  Miller joins Milwaukee Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy as two huge gets for the Indians leading up to the Monday Aug. 1 deadline.

Analysis:  Dellin Betances welcome to the ninth inning.  It is now crystal clear that the Yankees are tearing it down as Miller goes just days after Aroldis Chapman.  Carlos Beltran, Brett Gardner, and Ivan Nova could join them now.  As far as the Indians are concerned, this is a huge deal to go with Lucroy as it signals they are ready to stake their claim to the World Series.  Miller should supplant Cody Allen in the ninth inning, although it is not a given.  Meanwhile Betances instantly becomes a top five fantasy baseball closer with his insane K rate and impossible to hit stuff.
