Yomiuri Giants looking to acquire 28-year-old INF Josh Fields

by on Jun.23, 2011 @ 7:17 pm, under NPB

The Yomiuri Giants are apparently looking into a signing 28-year-old INF Josh Fields to bolster their infield and provide some pop in the line-up.  Rutsy Ryal hasn't lived up to the Giants' expectations thus far and are looking at Fields as someone that can potentially replace Ryal as an option at third.

If negotiations go smoothly, the earliest the Giants expect him to be in uniform, and ready to play, would be sometime around the All-Star break.

    Ryal and Fields played together at Oklahoma State. Fields was also a starting quarterback of its football squad.
