Mills Named Carolina League MVP
Joining Mills on the Carolina League’s End of Year All-Stars are Niuman Romero and Luis Perdomo. Romero is the CL’s All-Star second baseman. Romero is fifth in the Carolina League with a .303 batting average. Romero, also a mid-season All-Star, owns the Carolina League’s longest hitting streak of the season at 21 games. Romero has also racked up a career high six home runs, 53 RBI and 101 hits.
Although former K-Tribe closer Luis Perdomo left Kinston for Double A Akron halfway through the season, his performance was impressive enough to garner him end of year honors. Perdomo, also a mid-season All-Star, went 3-1 with a 0.92 ERA and 18 saves in 31 games. Perdomo was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals organization last month and is currently playing for Double A Springfield.
Kinston Athletic Trainer Chad Wolfe rounds out the K-Tribe awards as the Carolina League Athletic Trainer of the Year. The North Carolina resident and ECU graduate is in his second year with the Kinston Indians.
