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.

Bad shoulder lands Reds’ Rolen on disabled list; surprised Costanzo recalled from AAA


Cincinnati Reds third baseman Scott Rolen production has been painful this season and now he’s on the disabled list with an ailing shoulder which has been the cause of his slow bat.

In 29 games this season, Rolen is batting .174 with two home runs, 11 RBIs and a .238 on-base percentage. During Spring Training, Rolen looked healthy and played very well, as he batted .356, but he has not been able to carry that performance into the regular season games.

On Saturday, Rolen was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left shoulder. The club purchased the contract of third baseman Mike Costanzo from Triple-A Louisville to join the 25-man roster.

Team medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek examined Rolen on Saturday evening. The left shoulder is the one that needed surgery multiple times over the years, including last season, when the 37-year-old missed most of the second half.

Rolen is in the final year of a contract that is paying him $6.5 million this season.

Costanzo has been very busy early in 2012 having played in a combined 34 games with Louisville and Double-A Pensacola. The 28-year-old has batted .303 with six homers and 24 RBIs. When he appears for the Reds, it will be his big league debut. He was a second-round Draft pick of the Phillies in 2005, and joined Reds in 2010 after playing independent ball for Camden in the Atlantic League.

The Cincinnati Reds have announced that they’ve hired former major league manager Jim Riggleman to lead their new Double-A affiliate in Pensacola.

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos will play in the Southern League.

The new job will be Riggleman’s first in the dugout since his stunning decision to abruptly resign last June as the manager of the Washington Nationals over his contract situation when the team was in a hot streak, winning 11 of 12 games.

After leaving Washington, Riggleman worked as a scout for the San Francisco Giants.

Riggleman and Reds general manager Walt Jocketty have worked together before. Riggleman was the St. Louis Cardinals Minor League field coordinator while Jocketty was the team’s GM.

Riggleman, who is 59, has also managed the Padres, Cubs and Mariners.
