Brad Mills made three starts and four relief appearances for Toronto in 2010.  The 25 year-old lefty from Mesa, Arizona went 1-0 with a 5.64 earned run average and struck out 18 batters over 22 1/3 innings with a WHIP of 1.478.  The 5-foot-11 hurler earned his first major league win with seven shutout frames against the Orioles at the Dome July 28.   He was the #18 prospect in the Batter's Box Top 30 Prospects in the Jays farm system.  In case you were wondering why I call Mills "Strasburg Canada", click here for the story.
