New York Yankees left handed reliever Andrew Miller was going to fill the void while their closer, Aroldis Chapman, served his suspension.

Now, we hold our breath after he left Wednesday’s exhibition game after taking a line drive off his right wrist in the seventh inning.

According to Jared Diamond of the Wall Street journal, Miller slammed his glove down and threw his cap into the dugout.

Last season, Miller was 36-for-38 in save opportunities while owning a 2.04 ERA and a 14.6 K/9.

For the Yankees, they can only hope the X-Ray will only reveal a bruise and nothing else. They can also pray that their three headed monster is a lot like Hydra, who is the dragon in Greek mythology that keeps on growing heads.

If this injury causes miller to miss time, Dellin Betances will have to close out games while Chapman is out. Others like Chasen Shreve and Bryan Mitchell will have to step up as well to make the bridge dominant.

For now, we wait.
