It has been quite a day for Brian Cashman and the Yankees. Earlier today, around 2AM, the Mariners were rumored to be engaged with talks for Brett Gardner. Later, the Yankees traded Jose Pirela to the San Diego Padres for minor league pitcher Ron Herrera. In what was, thus far, the biggest move of the day, the Yankees acquired switch-hitting outfielder Aaron Hicks from the Minnesota Twins for backup catcher John Ryan Murphy. As if that weren't enough news for the day, Ken Rosenthal reports that the Arizona Diamondbacks are interested in Yankees' closer Andrew Miller.

The Yankees have had dealings with the Diamondbacks in the past and they have worked out well for Cashman. In 2014, they traded away Vidal Nuno for Brandon McCarthy. For this season, the Yankees acquired shortstop Didi Gregorius in a three-way trade that sent Shane Greene to the Detroit Tigers. Rosenthal states that they might be interested in a starting pitcher or infielder, but it's hard to say who the Yankees could acquire that would be worth three years of Andrew Miller, the winner of the Mariano Rivera award for Best Reliever this year. At this point, it's pure speculation.

Are there any Diamondbacks infielders or pitchers that you would like the Yankees to get for Andrew Miller? Of course, I mean Diamondbacks infielders not named Paul Goldschmidt.
