Default Josh Fields

The only Sox players playing in winter league that I could find were Felix Diaz, Arnie Munoz, Tetsu Yofu, and Frank Campos, all pitchers.

P.S.

I see nothing on the 3B Josh Fields, but the P Josh Fields pitched in Venezuela. Here is how everyone in winter ball did, per EasyW's blog via Soxtalk:

Quote:
Puerto Rican League:
Jose Santiago (P - Carolina Giants) went 2-3, with a 3.39 ERA in 58 IP, gave up 67 hits and 17 walks while striking out 24.

Andres Torres (OF - Mayaguez Indians) batted .248 in 37 games with a homer, 12 RBI 17 walks, and 11 stolen bases, but he struck out 26 times. Only committed one error.

Andy Gonzalez (SS - Ponce Lions) committed a team-high nine errors. Batted .245 in 37 games with 2 homers, 7 RBI and 6 stolen bases. He sturck out 22 times.

Chris Amador (2B - Atenienses de Marati) got 12 at bats and hit .083.

Ryan Meaux (P - Caguas) pitched 15 games in a relief role, going 0-1 with a 2.29 ERA. In 19 IP, he gave up 1 homer and 8 walks, while striking out 10.

Dominican Republic League:
Felix Diaz ( Tigres Del Licey) was 0-1 with a 4.58 ERA, giving up 25 hits in 17 IP while striking out 7.

Arnie Munoz (P - Aguilas Del Cibao) was 1-1 with a 1.50 ERA in 12 IP. He also recorded 12 Ks.

Venezuelan League:
Eduardo Villacis (P - Caracas Leones) was 1-2 with a 5.08 ERA in 28 IP. He gave up 35 hits and 11 walks, and struck out 19.

Josh Fields (P - Occidente Pastora) didn't get much work the last few weeks of the year. HE finishes up 0-2 with a 10.38 ERA in 4 1/3 IP.

Mexican League:
Frank Campos (P - Mazatlan Deer) was 7-2 in 14 starts posting a 3.29 ERA in 76 2/3 IP, walking only 27 while striking out 77. Good job Frank.

Tetsu Yofu (P -Guasave Cottoners) was 5-3 with a 4.07 ERA in 55 IP, giving up 8 homers and 36 walks while striking out 46.

I didn't write it. Also, I think we can all agree that the less Joe B. we see and hear about, the better.

I dont know if u ment this as a very negative comment but Scott Merkin (the guy from the whitesox.com mailbag) said not to put much stock i the fact he was cut cuz since they only play for like 2 months, they cut people every week, they dont give players time to get outta slumps, i looked for the article but i couldnt find it online

I don like borchard, but he does seem to have the potential to become a 5-tool outfielder, even beltran took a few years to gain superstar status, he hits very good in the minors, i wonder how long (if all) it will take him to start shining

I remember hearing that the Mexican League has more breaking stuff than some of the other leagues, and guess what Borchard cannot hit? FWIW, I could see it, but who knows what the deal really is.
