No surprise here: Indians reliever Andrew Miller was named MVP of the ALCS, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports. Miller is the first reliever to win LCS MVP since Koji Uehara in 2013 for the Red Sox.

During the ALCS, Miller pitched 7 2/3 innings, giving up zero runs on three hits with no walks and 14 strikeouts. Miller was nearly as dominant in the division series, tossing four shutout innings on two htis and two walks with seven strikeouts.

Hall of Famer Pedro Martinez was very complimentary of Miller on Twitter:

The Indians acquired Miller from the Yankees ahead of the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline, sending minor leaguers Clint Frazier, J.P. Feyereisen, Jusus Sheffield, and Ben Heller to New York. It seems to have worked out.
