Former 1st round pick and highly regarded prospect, Josh Fields, has signed a minor league contract with the Phillies. His last action in the Majors came back in 2010 with the Royals. In 4 seasons with the White Sox and KC he hit .234/.724 over 217 games. He's played primarily 3rd base, but has also seen time in LF and 1B.
Fields turns 30 years old in December and has solid minor league stats- .289/.843 with 93 HR and 412 RBI over parts of 9 seasons. He's probably insurance for the Phillies actual plan at 3rd base in 2013, which is looking more and more like a platoon of Kevin Frandsen and Freddy Galvis. If that's going to be the 3rd base situation next year, then the Phils might need to sign 2 premier outfielders (Pagan & Hamilton?) to offset the lack of offense at 3rd base.
