Reds acquire 1B/3B Mills from Indians in minor league trade


The Cleveland Indians expected a great deal out of Beau Mills, but that is usually the case with a  First-round Draft pick. After all, he was the 13th overall pick of the 2007 First-Year Player Draft. The first baseman/third baseman’s play didn’t satisfy the front office, so he has been dealt to MLB team in southwest Ohio.

Cleveland traded Mills to Cincinnati in exchange for cash in a Minor League deal on Thursday, June 21.  Mills has been assigned to Double-A Pensacola in the Reds’ organization. Mills had start the 2012 MiLB season with the Columbus Clippers of the Triple-A International League.

This season, Mills as a designated hitter/first baseman,  he batted  just .197 with seven homers and 21 RBIs in 39 games for Triple-A Columbus. He can also play third base.  Mills’ production caused him to fall to third on the Indians organizational depth chart behind Matt LaPorta and Russ Canzler at first base for the Clippers.

In six minor league seasons with the Indians organization, the 25-year-old Mills hit .267 with 76 home runs and 375 RBI’s.

The Columbus Clippers, clearly the best team in the IL this season, now has 80 wins on the season thanks to one of their newer and younger players.

Beau Mills belted a grand slam with two outs in the top of the eighth inning to lead the team to a 7-5 win over the Pawtucket Red Sox in Rhode Island on Thursday night.

Columbus trailed 4-3 but were able to put two runners on second and third with no outs against Red Sox reliever Scott Atchison (6-2) in the eighth.

With one out, Travis Buck was walked intentionally.

After a strikeout for the second out of the eighth, Mills, who was having a bad road trip at 1-for-10, hit a 1-1 pitch over the wall in right field. It was his third homer since being called up from Double-A Akron on July 22.

Columbus starting pitcher Zach McAllister (10-3) allowed four runs, all in the second inning, and seven hits, with five strikeouts in seven innings. He became the third IL pitcher to reach 10 wins this season.

Josh Judy pitched a scoreless ninth for his 21st save.
