Rangers claim Brad Mills from Angels

USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers made a minor move today in claiming Brad Mills from the Angels. Mills will likely not make the Rangers' 25-man roster.

Brad Mills has 15 games of Major League experience…over four years. It's safe to say he's cut from the mold of career minor leaguer. However, the Rangers think he could add some depth to their system and occasionally be called up for brief action or as an injury replacement. The Rangers claimed Mills today from the Rangers says Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com.

Mills is out of minor league options so in order for the Rangers to assign him to the minors, he will have to clear waivers. It's unlikely the Rangers would add him to their 25-man roster. If Texas manages to get Mills to the minors, they could have a valuable "veteran" available to help them. Mills' four seasons of experience is worth considering despite the fact that he's only appeared in 15 games.

Mills, 28, is a lefty who can relieve or start games. He has been used in both capacities in his Major League career. In the minors, Mills has primarily been a start. He's made just six relief appearances in his 112-game minor league career. In his six seasons spanning Single-A through Triple-A, Mills has a 41-38 record. He also has a 3.97 ERA. Mills has a 7.76 ERA in his 15 Major League games.

The Rangers, according to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, placed Neftali Feliz on the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster for Mills.
