The first-place Cleveland Indians made some major news early Sunday morning, acquiring All-Star reliever Andrew Miller from the New York Yankees for four prospects. 

Miller, 31, has been absolutely dominating recently. He's posted a 1.39 ERA and 0.77 WHIP while striking out over 15 batters per inning thus far in 2015. This comes on the heels of Miller saving 36 games for the Yankees last season. 

Despite "losing" his closer job to Aroldis Chapman this year, Miller is expected to take over in that role with the Indians. We'll have more in-depth analysis on this move here shortly.
