The Yankees and Indians have agreed to a deal that will send star reliever Andrew Miller to Cleveland.

The Yankees will get minor-leaguers outfielder Clint Frazier and pitcher Justus Sheffield in return, sources tell ESPN's Buster Olney.

The trade was first reported by Fox Sports and confirmed by ESPN.

The Yankees had been entertaining offers for Miller, though the price for the left-hander was considered "steep," a source told ESPN. The chances that Miller would be traded went up after the Yankees traded closer Aroldis Chapman to the Cubs last week.
