Twins Send Van Mil To L.A.; Fuentes Trade Complete

The Twins will send right-hander Loek Van Mil to the Angels to complete the Brian Fuentes trade, according to Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune (on Twitter). The Twins designated Van Mil for assignment over the weekend, when they had to create roster space for Fuentes.

Van Mil, a native of the Netherlands, stands 7'1". The reliever spent most of the 2010 season at AA and posted an overall ERA of 6.15 in 26 appearances with 7.2 K/9 and 5.9 BB/9. Van Mil turns 26 this month, but he was still considered a "potential impact reliever" by Baseball America before the season. BA explained that Van Mil has a sound delivery that's hard to repeat and explained that he must throw more strikes to reach the majors.
