PHILLIES GET A B-GRADE IN TRADE OF HOWIE KENDRICKS TO NATS!

McKenzie Mills recently ranked as the Nationals’ No. 18 prospect at midseason, according to MLB.com, so that’s a pretty reasonable return for a part-time player like Howie Kendrick. Mills is a 21-year-old from Georgia, an 18th-round pick in 2014, who is having a breakout season at low Class A Hagerstown. He features a low-90s fastball and plus curveball with a nice build at 6-foot-4, 205 pounds. He has a 3.01 ERA while holding batters to a .204 average with 118 strikeouts and 22 walks in 104.2 innings, so there’s some nice stats result to go with the scouting report. As with all these low Class A pitchers, Mills is a long shot, but getting a guy like him is exactly why the Phillies acquired Kendrick from the Dodgers in the first place:
