But maybe ... the Indians’ Andrew Miller has created a new position - Super Reliever: Doug Lesmerises | cleveland.com

It’s not new. He’s a fireman.

If we want more Andrew Millers in the baseball world, and we should, then we have to give them a name. If we can have closers and setup men, we can have a name for the reliever who gets the most dangerous hitters out in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings. We can make it a new full-time position in major league baseball.

“I don’t know, didn’t they call them Firemen back in the day?” Miller said this week when I presented him with the Super Reliever name. “Goose Gossage was a fireman.”

The Indians and Andrew Miller Are Reshaping How We Think About Elite Reliever Usage

Chapman didn’t enter a game before the ninth inning or stay in any game for more than three outs. Miller, meanwhile, saw action as early as the sixth. He jogged in as often in the eighth as the ninth, and he entered in the seventh most often of all. He also turned in longer outings, throwing more innings than Chapman despite appearing in three fewer games. Chapman pitched in save situations all but three times; Miller pitched in non-save situations all but three times. He’s a closer-quality pitcher abnormally unbound by saves, which frees Indians manager Terry Francona to deploy him as a more flexible stopper.

Jon Heyman on Twitter: “sheffield, frazier, and 2 minor-league pitchers go to yanks. no $ involved.”

Justin Sheffield, Clint Frazier *and* two other minor leaguers for Andrew Miller. That’s a haul.
