After Wednesday's loss to the Nationals, ESPN's Wally Matthews reported that Andrew Miller will be headed to the disabled list with a forearm strain.

Miller had a video game like 1.03 ERA with 14.7 K/9 this season. Hopefully he will be back after 15 days. In the meantime, lefty relievers Tyler Webb and James Pazos may be in line for a callup to the big leagues. With Justin Wilson, Chasen Shreve, and Jacob Lindgren already on the big league roster, the Yankees may call up a righty like Nick Rumbelow or Jose Ramirez. Here's to a speedy recovery for the Yanks' closer.
