Angels trade 7-foot-1 Van Mil to Indians
ANAHEIM -- The Angels dealt Minor League relief pitcher Loek Van Mil to the Indians on Saturday in exchange for future considerations, which will probably end up being cash.

Acquired from the Twins in September 2010 as the player to be named later in the deal that sent lefty Brian Fuentes to Minnesota, Van Mil posted a 2.04 ERA in 30 games for Double-A Arkansas last year. In Triple-A Salt Lake this year, while pitching in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, the 27-year-old right-hander had given up 10 runs (seven earned) in 10 innings.

Van Mil, 7-foot-1, is the tallest player in pro baseball and one of only a handful from the Netherlands.
