I wouldn't be surprised to see him get a couple weeks of exposure in AA at the end of the season if he experiences some decent success.
Supposedly the Sox have told both Fields and Lumsden they want them in Birmingham after a month in Winston. That's pushing them both a bit, if you ask me. I thought starting them at High A was pushing them, but I guess the fact they signed right away and and didn't have a long break after their college seasons does help.
