Tigers prospect Daniel Fields off to promising start at Triple-A
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Tigers outfield prospect Daniel Fields is off to a great start at Triple-A Toledo, batting .343 (12 for 35) with one triple, one home run, three RBI, four doubles and eight runs in 10 games. The Tigers are excited to see Fields doing well after a few injury-plagued seasons.
"Fields has been swinging the bat real well and obviously hitting with some power," Tigers assistant general manager Al Avila said, per The Detroit News. "He's got all the tools to make it work. I think the biggest thing is for him to simply stay healthy."
While the 24-year-old prospect is off to a nice start this season, Toledo manager Larry Parrish said Fields is still not a polished product.
"He's still a work in progress as far as staying inside the ball, and staying through the pitch," Parrish said. "He's not rolling over the ball as much. He still, sometimes, wants to spin on the ball and the bat comes around the ball. He takes some pitches he could drive and rolls 'em over, or hooks them foul. And when a good pitcher gives you one of those and you hit it foul, it just gives him one more chance to make a good pitch on you.
"Arm-wise, he's slightly below-average, but a lot of center fielders don't have real strong arms. He's more of a (Curtis) Granderson type, defensively, so for him to play out there he's going to have to hit."
Justin Miller among handful of Tigers sent down

|(3/14/14) One-time premier pitching prospect Justin Miller is among five players dispatched to the minors by the Tigers on Friday. He is headed to Triple-A Toledo along with first baseman Jordan Lennerton and center fielder Daniel Fields. Third baseman Francisco Martinez has been assigned to Double-A Erie while second baseman Devon Travis was sent to minor league camp.
Miller was 9-1 with a 1.83 ERA with 77 strikeouts in 69 innings at the Double-A level in 2011 before Tommy John surgery halted his progress.

|(3/5/14) Tigers outfielder Daniel Fields is not considered a candidate to replace Andy Dirks in left, according to MLB.com.
Fields is "a notch below" other candidates due to his lack of experience, according to manager Brad Ausmus. The 23-year-old has yet to make his major-league debut.
