Focus Area
Hitting Ability:Excellent hitting skills, with chance to hit for average at next level. Keeps bat in zone for a long time, makes good adjustments at plate.
Power:Mills has plus power and will punish any mistake. He's got a line-drive swing, but with some plus loft and profiles as a doubles and home run hitter as a pro. Mills hit four homers in the first two games of this series, including three in the Friday game. He's slugged .914 for the season with 16 homers.
Running Speed:While not a basestealer, Mills is not a clogger and runs fairly well once underway.
Base Running:Mills is a heads up base-runner who maximizes his speed with good decision-making.
Arm Strength:Mills' arm action has many thinking first base will be his position in the future. He tends to shot-put the ball a little, but it seems to work for him.
Arm Accuracy:Mills makes accurate throws, despite the funky delivery.
Fielding:Overall, Mills isn't bad at third, catching whatever he can get to.
Range:His range is just average. He won't wow you, but he's not nailed to the ground, either.
Baseball Instinct:Off the charts. Mills' father, Brad, is the Red Sox bench coach, and it's easy to tell the younger Mills grew up around the game. He plays the game the right way.
Aggressiveness:Mills is a quiet leader, but certainly doesn't shy away from challenges.
Physical Description:Mills is a big, left-handed hitting prospect. He draws a bit of a comparision to Scott Spiezio.
Medical Update:Healthy.
Strengths:His bat. When he extends his hands, he makes pitchers pay. When they try to jam him, he adjusts. He also has plus makeup and baseball know-how.
Weaknesses:His arm strength leaves his defensive position in question. Some scouts don't think that arm action will play at third and would move him to first the second he turns pro.
Summary:Mills spent his first two years of college ball at Fresno State, but transferred after academic problems forced him off the team late last year. Still, he hit 14 homers and hit .355 in 2006 and was even better with Lewis-Clark State this year. In a class short on impact college bats, Mills has only helped his draft status.
