The Beau Mills File
Born: Aug. 15, 1986 in Visalia, CA
Position: Corner Infielder
Acquired: First-round draft pick (13th overall) in 2007 from Lewis-Clark State.
Strengths: Had an MVP season at Kinston, where he enjoyed excellent production (21 homers, 90 RBI) while hitting a solid .293. Great swing. Has excellent bat speed. Beau knows baseball, thanks to his growing up in a baseball family. Has what it takes to develop into a team leader.
Weaknesses: Still working to become a top-notch first baseman, having just recently made the transition from third base. Just needs experience.
2009 Projection: Will likely hit in the middle or order and be everyday first baseman at Akron, but could also see some limited action at third.
