Loek van Mil returns at AAA

Loek van Mil who returned to the Netherlands after spending the major part of the 2014 season in the minors of the NPB in Japan, has played his first game in the affiliated Minor Leagues since 2013. Yesterday the 30-year old debuted with the Rochester RedWings in a game vs division rival Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.

After returning from Japan, Van Mil offered his services to reigning Dutch champions Curacao Neptunus. On August 23 he played his last game for the Rotterdam team in a 7-3 win over Vaessen  Pioniers from Hoofddorp.
In the Dutch Hoofdklasse, In 24.2 innings, Loek van Mil posted a microscopic ERA of 0,36 and he kept his opponents to a batting average of .078. He struck out 31 and only walked nine.

So the 7’1″ Van Mil debuted last night with the Rochester RedWings. In a game vs the Railriders (Yankees AAA team), he took the mound in the eighth inning when the Minnesota Twins’ AAA farm team was leading 8-0 already. So in a very relaxed situation Van Mil was able to keep the opponent in check as he gave up a hit and a walk in two innings. 

The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders and the Rocherster RedWings are in a fight for the International League North Divison title, but the RedWings are only one game away from elimination.
