#1 The Cleveland Indians announced von laiyongcai92 23.01.2019 08:42

Wednesday that they've placed star reliever Andrew Miller on the 10-day disabled list with lefts shoulder impingement Jarrod Dyson Jersey , and that Tyler Olson has been recalled from Triple-A.Roster move:- Placed LHP Andrew Miller (left shoulder, external impingement) on the 10-day Disabled List, retroactive to August 27- Recalled LHP Tyler Olson from Triple-A Columbus#RallyTogether pic.twitter.com/ChsjcZ0YKQ— Cleveland Indians (@Indians) August 29, 2018It's the third time Miller has hit the DL this season, as pointed out by Bob Nightengale of USA Today. Miller is now 33 years of age and is slated to hit free agency this winter, so the series of injuries could hurt his value should he enters the open market.That being said, the Indians are able to be cautious with Miller and their other injured players. They enter play on Wednesday with a 75-56 record ttp://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-brad-boxberger-jersey , 14 games clear of the Minnesota Twins for the AL Central lead. They're considerably behind the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox, so the Indians are virtually locked in as the No. 3 seed in the American League come playoff time.advertising Credit: David Richard-USA TODAY SportsMiller has an excellent postseason track record, having won the 2016 ALCS MVP for the Indians after dominating the Toronto Blue Jays. In the postseason that year, Miller pitched 19.1 innings and struck out a whopping 30 batters, picking up two winning decisions while posting an impressive 1.40 ERA.In 27 game appearances with the Indians this season, Miller has posted a 3.38 ERA with 33 strikeouts in 24 innings pitched. Given the season-long struggles of closer Cody Allen, it's very possible Miller assumes the closer role come playoff time. Trade deadline pickup Brad Hand could slot in as the setup man for Miller.advertisingMiller has posted a 1.87 ERA during his two-and-a-half seasons with the Indians Daniel Descalso Jersey , building up a reputation as one of the top relievers in all of baseball. If he can return to full health and have another strong performance in the postseason, Miller could land one of the richest reliever contracts in history come winter time. Many of the big names have already been dealt prior to the July 31 trade deadline (4 p.m. ET), but there are several additional moves that have a chance to be made.The Minnesota Twins came into the 2018 season with the idea that they were good enough to contend with the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central. It hasn't worked out that way, as the Twins are nine games behind the Tribe after losing three of four games to the Boston Red Sox.They are even further behind in the wild-card race, as they trail the Seattle Mariners for the No. 2 spot by 13.5 games.As a result, the Twins are in a sell mode as the deadline approaches, and second baseman Brian Dozier could be among their most valuable commodities to move. The San Francisco Giants and Cleveland Indians are two of the teams that are most interested in Dozier http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-ketel-marte-jerse , according to Twins beat writer Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.Dozier is not having the kind of explosive year with the bat that he did in either of the last two years, but he still represents something of a power bat at a middle-infield position. Dozier has a .224/.306/.404 slash line with 16 home runs and 52 runs batted in. Dozier belted 42 homers and knocked in 99 runs in 2016, and he hit 34 homers and 93 RBI last year.Dozier was especially hot in the second half of the season in each of the last two years.While the Indians are on their way to winning the AL Central and have their sights set on competing with the Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees in the postseason, the Giants are in fourth place in the NL West.The Giants have a 53-54 record and have dropped seven of their last 10 games, and they are 6.5 games behind the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers.The Cincinnati Reds picked up pitcher Matt Harvey off the scrapheap after the New York Mets parted company with him early in the season.While Harvey appeared to have lost most of his velocity and was pitching poorly at the time of his departure from Citi Field, he has bounced back nicely since joining the Reds.Harvey has a 5-4 record in his 14 starts with Cincinnati David Peralta Jersey , and he has a 4.44 earned-run averaged with a 1.192 WHIP. That's not a superstar level, but it is fairly competent.That's good enough to interest the Milwaukee Brewers, who have a strong need to upgrade their starting pitching. MLB network insider Jon Morosi tweeted that talks between the Brewers and the Reds are ongoing about sending Harvey to Milwaukee.Andy Martino martinonycMets having many, many trade discussions about Zack Wheeler, but the tone seems to have shifted since Wednesday. Heres why:gcFXEBk5c3One other potential move among pitchers involves Zack Wheeler of the New York Mets, who has won his last three starts and has pitched with increased efficiency.Wheeler has pitched 7.2, 7.0 and 6.0 innings(per Baseball-Reference) in those three starts http://www.diamondbacksfanproshop.com/authentic-deven-marrero-jersey , and he has allowed six earned runs in those three starts. Wheeler is 5-6 with a 4.11 ERA and 116 strikeouts in 120.1 innings pitched.The Philadelphia Phillies, Atlanta Braves, Brewers and Yankees are among the teams that have shown the most interest in Wheeler, according to MLB insider Jon Heyman of Fancred.It seems likely that the Mets might be most interested in dealing with the Brewerssince the Phillies and Braves are division rivals and sending him across town to the Yankees could be dangerous.The Mets may end up keeping Wheeler unless any of the potential trade partners improve their offers.
