2010

The Mariners' No. 1 draft choice in 2008, Fields didn't sign until February 2009. The long layoff might have contributed to his struggles, and he was shut down for a bit with dead arm. Fields throws hard, and his 97-mph fastball didn't disappoint, registering a 9.7 K/9IP, but he lacked command and control, issuing 5.9 BB/9IP. Phillippe Aumont's trade to Philadelphia helps Fields' cause, though the Mariners have plenty of late-inning options should closer David Aardsma falter, so there's no need to rush Fields. He will likely begin the season in Triple-A with a callup perhaps coming in summer.
