— A Timely Look at Transactions as They Happen
Friday, March 08, 2002
Signed 1B Andres Galarraga and P Alan Mills to minor-league contracts.
Last year was actually the first time that Lee Stevens had a platoon split, but Galarraga is a better hitter against lefties than Stevens regardless, even if he’s a billion years old and has seriously declined as a hitter. Anyway, Stevens not having a platoon split isn’t exactly like Klesko not having a platoon split; it would just mean that Stevens stinks both ways equally.
Mills may be done. His shoulder has had tons of problems over the years and his control, while never all that great, will really come back to haunt him if he can’t blow his fastball by batters and pray as he did in the past, even in his best seasons. I’ve always thought Mills could have developed into a better pitcher than he did; he never struck out as many batters as you would expect from a reliever with an excellent fastball and slider.
