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.

27-year-old former Columbus Clippers outfielder Melky Cabrera has been around the majors leagues in just a short time.

He has played for the Yankees, Atlanta and the Royals.

Now he is a member of the San Francisco Giants.

Cabrera is one of the hottest hitters in Major League Baseball.

Cabrera’s 51 hits in May equaled a Giants record for most hits in a month since the team moved to San Francisco from New York in 1958.

His 51 hits is better any of the well-known Giants hitters of the past, Willie Mays and Orlando Cepeda.

Cabrera hit .429 in May, with three homers, five triples, seven doubles and 17 runs batted in.

He hit safely in 25 of 29 games.

Indians trade Clippers star Valbuena to Toronto

There was no doubt that Luis Valbuena was one of the catalysts who drove the Columbus Clippers offense the past two seasons.

In 2011, Valbuena hit .302 in 113 games, with 64 runs scored, 127 hits, 22 doubles, 17 homers, 75 RBI’s, 200 total bases, 46 walks. He helped lead the Clippers to back-to-back IL Governors Cup champions and National Triple-A world champions.

But when it came time to hit major league hitting, Valbuena had no clue.

So, the Cleveland Indians with a boatload of middle infielders, traded the second baseman over the weekend to the Toronto Blue Jays  in exchange for cash considerations.

The 25-year-old played in 17 games for Cleveland last year, batting just .209 with one homer and one RBI.

The move puts Toronto at 40 players on their 40-man roster.

In the process, the Indians have outrighted RHP Mitch Talbot and outfielder Jerad Head off their 40-man roster, putting them on the free agent market.

Talbot spent most of the season dealing with elbow injuries. He went 2-6 with a 6.64 ERA in 12 starts for Cleveland.

Head was a September call up from Triple-A Columbus and he batted .125 (3-for-24) in 10 games with the Indians. With the Minor-League National Champions Columbus Clippers, Head batted .284 with 24 home runs and 70 RBI’s.
