Yankees moving Dellin Betances back into setup role
by Michael Hurcomb |

Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters Tuesday that reliever Andrew Miller (forearm) will be activated off the disabled list Wednesday. He also added Miller will return to the closer's role, which means Dellin Betances will head back to a setup role.

Betances suffered his second blown save of the season Saturday against the Rays. However, he still picked up the win, as New York plated the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Since Miller went on the DL on June 11, Betances went 1-1 with a 5.59 ERA in eight outings. He went 5 for 6 in save chances in that span.
