"I was fine with everything," Mills said. "He was in a good frame of mind, I thought. I'm going to leave it at that. I'm really not going to give it a second thought. He's been very open with me and [pitching coach Brad Arnsberg] and [general manager] Ed [Wade], as far as I know. Everything was fine. I thought he handled everything well."
Oswalt's agent informed owner Drayton McLane this week that the right-hander would like to be traded. Oswalt addressed the media prior to Saturday's game and said he would like to be traded to a contender, but reiterated he hasn't demanded a trade.
Mills doesn't think the Oswalt situation will serve as a distraction in the clubhouse.
"It definitely is blown up a lot more outside of the clubhouse than what is going on in the clubhouse," he said.
