Found December 22, 2012 on Redlegs Review:
Move over, Logan Ondrusek, you are no longer the tallest pitcher in the Cincinnati organization. The Reds have reportedly signed 7-foot-1 right-hander Loek van Mil, according to Baseball America editor Matt Eddy. The 28-year old native of the Netherlands finished the 2012 campaign pitching with the Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. Mill split time in the minor leagues with both the Indians and Los Angeles Angels in 2012 where he combined to post a 3.20 ERA and 1.253 WHIP in 64.2 innings pitched (41g). He spent 2006-2010 in the Minnesota Twins lower-level farm system. Eddy's report appears to be confirmed by the transactions list on the club's official website.
