Brad had somewhat of a shaky start in “The Show”. He allowed four earned runs on six hits and four walks with two strikeouts over 3 2/3 innings, taking a no-decision against the Phillies. Mills was drafted in the fourth round of the 2007 Draft by the Blue Jays. In the last short two years Mills went through the Blue Jays minor leagues with a 15-5 W-L record,and a .196 ERA in 165.1 innings pitched. The Harrisonburg Turks (Valley Baseball League) is extremely proud of Brad’s rapid move up the Blue Jays ranks. We wish him the best in his professional baseball career. All of his TURKS fans will be watching back here from the ‘Burg.
