Fields “raring to go!”

Just chatted briefly with Josh Fields, who completed his physical with the team.
“I’m raring to go!” he said.
The Mariners should announce, no later than tomorrow, that Fields has been invited to their major league camp. Fields was advised by the Mariners not to speak about his status until the team gets the complete physical results and finalizes the deal.
You never know about these things, after all. I don’t want him getting in trouble before he even puts on a uniform, so we’ll just leave his comments at those.
Fields struck me as someone who can’t wait to get back on a mound. He hasn’t pitched in anger since being drafted last June. He’s a lot more slender than I thought he’d be. But as they say, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. Not the dog in the fight.
Then again, make that dawg not dog. He did, after all, pitch for the University of Georgia. Expect the team to get around to the official announcement shortly.
