2017 Fantasy Outlook
After starting the season in Double-A Northwest Arkansas, Mills pitched well enough to earn himself a spot as a Texas league midseason All-Star along with a promotion to Triple-A Omaha. While in Omaha, Mills continued to post numbers similar to his Double-A numbers and earned himself a callup to Kansas City. After earning a spot with the Royals, Mills struggled in the limited time that he saw, walking 5.0 batters and giving up 5.0 runs in just 3.1 major league innings. Despite his struggles in the majors, Mills is still just 25-years-old and his inflated numbers shouldn't be overanalyzed due to the small sample size. It was the first time the righty was deployed in the bullpen, pitching as a starter throughout the minors. After being traded to the Cubs, a bullpen assignment or more time in the minors seems to be in the cards for Mills.
