Sox Scribbles: Fields To Japan

The Rockies organization announced today that infielder Josh Fields was unconditionally released in order to honor an agreement made with the Yomiuri Giants of the Japanese League. Fields, who had been arguably the Sox best player, had been enjoying an extremely productive season, ranking among the league leaders in average, slugging percentage and runs for much of the season’s first half. He finishes his season with the Sox with a .365 (65-for-178) average with 11 home runs, 20 doubles, 53 runs scored, 45 RBI and a .674 slugging percentage in 50 games.

The loss of Fields is another blow to a Sox offense which has lost Charlie Blackmon, Chris Nelson and Eric Young Jr. already this season.
