PHILADELPHIA -- The Indians are not commenting on the arrest of three of their Minor League players following an altercation in downtown Akron.
Beau Mills and Jerad Head, who play for Double-A Akron, and Josh Tomlin, who is at Triple-A Columbus, were each charged with felonious assault after an altercation on June 3 at an apartment in Akron. The victim reportedly suffered serious injuries due to the assault. The case was filed on June 22 in the Akron Municipal Court, and Mills and Head appeared in court Thursday morning, according to the Akron Beacon Journal.
Mills, a first baseman, was the Tribe's No. 1 Draft pick in 2007. His father is Brad Mills, manager of the Astros. He is batting .205 this season and was recently placed on the Akron disabled list.
Head, an outfielder, is batting .232 for the Aeros. The right-handed Tomlin is in the Columbus rotation, where he is 7-2 with a 2.70 ERA.
General manager Mark Shapiro said the Indians will not be commenting on the arrests.
