Twins send 7-footer to Angels to finish Fuentes deal

CBSSports.com wire reports

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins have sent 7-foot-1 pitcher Loek Van Mil to the Los Angeles Angels to complete last week's trade for left-hander Brian Fuentes.

The Twins announced the move before Wednesday's game.

Van Mil is a right-hander from the Netherlands who turns 26 later this month. He was designated for assignment to make room for Fuentes when the deal was made last Friday.

Van Mil had a 6.37 ERA in 23 relief appearances for Double-A New Britain this season. Injuries have hindered his progress since he was signed by the Twins in 2006.
