He's a big, solid, kinda slow guy. Wouldn't be much of a OF. And there have been several references about how's he's killing AA etc.
He had 2 big multi-hit games when he came up, one of those has now "rolled off" his last 10 games, and his last 10 now show him hittting .222 over that period. Anything less than 2 hits today and that .222 is heading south.
Granted, he's got power. But I'd wait 2 weeks to give a call on how well he's mashing at AA. After seeing him, I'm not sold.
Thanks for the info Jax. I'm rooting for Mills. If they forget moving him (if its even in the Reds heads which I doubt) and just concentrate on his hitting he may become a useful backup with power for the bench. Certainly nothing wrong with that. The Reds could sure use a lefty hitting power hitter on the bench.
