2019 FANTASY BASEBALL GM MEETINGS REPORT: YANKS/METS SET TO BATTLE FOR ANDREW MILLER

By Michael Wong 

Carlsband, CA.--The New York Mets and New York Yankees plan to battle it out for relief pitching this winter and the biggest name among them will be free agent power arm Andrew Miller.  GM Brian Cashman has always said trading away Miller was a big personal regret a few summers ago and a reunion could very well be in the cards.  Meanwhile, the Mets and new GM Brodie Van Wagenen are also big Miller fans as manager Mickey Callaway has a history with the player and they have him high on their priority list.  Also regarding the Mets, they are weighing whether or not to pursue a reunion with former All-Star closer Jeurys Familia but the optics of bringing him back a year after the failed returns of Jay Bruce and Jose Reyes make it a concern in terms of the fans not being on board.  Adam Ottavino menawhile is a big Mets target and he reportedly is interested in making the trip East. 

-Speaking of the Yankees, there is a big market for starting pitcher Sonny Gray who pitched very well on the road last season but bombed so badly at Yankee Stadium that it is impossible for him to return there. 

-Bryce Harper will be courted heavily by the St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies but the Yankees will not be in on those sweepstakes. 

-Patrick Corbin to the Yankees seems to be a lock according to the various reporters and league execs here. 

-The Los Angeles Angels will likely let Matt Shoemaker walk given his rash of injuries the last few seasons. 

-If Houston Astros pitcher Lance McCullers is forced to undergo elbow surgery as is looking like the case, don't count them out for J.A. Happ or C.C. Sabathia as a fallback option. 

-Speaking of the Cardinals, they are also willing to get involved with Craig Kimbrel and to a lesser extent Familia and Ottavino in looking to fix their ongoing closer issues.
