soft hands.

After Sunday's game, the Tigers announced Miller will join them for Tuesday's opener of a three-game series at Yankee Stadium. The promotion comes a few days ahead of schedule, and now he's in line to get meaningful innings, as the second left-handed reliever behind Jamie Walker. He takes the bullpen spot of left-hander Wil Ledezma, who will start Wednesday night because Mike Maroth isn't healthy enough to do so.

"This is a little bit different than everybody was expecting," Miller said.

"That makes it even more exciting. I don't know what to say."

Manager Jim Leyland said Miller will pitch in New York. He sounded eager to see Miller take on famous left-handed hitters like Johnny Damon and Jason Giambi in clutch situations. So here is Miller -- a few months out of the University of North Carolina -- about to be thrust into a playoff-race matchup of first-place teams in baseball's most famous stadium.
