Andrew Miller is ready to hand the title “Yankees closer” to Aroldis Chapman for a more undefined bullpen role. But the switch won’t mean uncharted territory for the veteran lefty. “It wasn’t that long go that I did long-guy one day and I’d get an out in a tie game in the eighth inning the next day,” Miller said Tuesday at the annual Thurman Munson dinner.

OKC Thunder: Meet OKC's other All-Star Weekend participant, J.P. Tokoto

On a sleepy Saturday morning, most of the Oklahoma City Blue's players have cleared off the court. J.P. Tokoto remains. The 22-year-old is dripping sweat off his slender 6-foot-6½-inch frame (says Tokoto: “my hair is 6-7”).
