Angels Complete Fuentes Deal, Acquire Perhaps The Greatest Name In Baseball History

The player to be named later in the Brian Fuentes trade was named today, as the Angels received reliever Loek Van Mil from the Twins. Per Joe Christensen of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Van Mil, 25, had been designated for assignment and dropped from the 40-man roster to make room for Fuentes. A a 7-foot-1 righthander from The Netherlands, Van Mil was 1-2 with a 6.37 ERA in 23 games for Class AA New Britain this year.

The full name of this pitcher from the Netherlands is Ludovicus Jacobus Maria Van Mil. If he makes the major leagues, a long shot for a 25-year old in Double A, Van Mil would be the tallest player in Major League Baseball history.
