CLEVELAND (AP) -Infielder Beau Mills, Cleveland's first-round pick in this month's draft, agreed Friday to a minor league contract with a signing bonus of $1,575,000.
Mills, the son of Boston Red Sox bench coach Brad Mills, was the No. 13 overall selection by the Indians.
The 20-year-old batted .458 with 38 home runs and 123 RBIs in 62 games during his junior season at Lewis-Clark State (Lewiston, Idaho). He set an NAIA single-season home-run record while helping the school defend its NAIA title.
