Fields among first camp cuts
The first cuts of Spring Training occured this morning.
Bags were packed at five lockers, those being occupied the past few weeks by right-handed pitchers Josh Fields and Tracy Thorpe, catcher Israel Nunez and infielders Callix Crabbe and Oswaldo Navarro.
None of the roster cuts were unexpected, but you can be sure of seeing Fields later on this spring in a Cactus League game.
He has a tremendous upside, has been impressive, and I would be surprised if he’s not in the Major Leagues before the end of the regular season.
Of course, I remember saying the same thing about some kid name Griffey 12 years ago. Whatever happened to him?
