Indians acquire 7-foot pitcher from Angels
CLEVELAND -- The Indians acquired 7-foot-1 pitcher Loek Van Mil from the Angels on Saturday in exchange for future cash considerations.

Van Mil, 27, will report to Double-A Akron. The native of Oss, Netherlands, was pitching for Triple-A Salt Lake, where he compiled a 1-0 record and 6.30 ERA in eight games. In 30 appearances for Double-A Arkansas last season, Van Mil went 3-5 with a 2.04 ERA.

Van Mil signed as a non-Drafted free agent with the Twins in 2005. He was traded to the Angels in 2010.

At 6-foot-11, Mets reliever Jon Rauch is the tallest player to ever appear in a Major League game.
