BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2008 Nate Field throws strikes, which makes him a reasonable candidate to put up decent numbers in Shea Stadium now that he's signed with the Mets.
2007 Signed to a minor league contract before the season, Field closed for the Sky Sox in 2006, leading the PCL with 25 saves despite being raked by lefties (.344/.372/.500). Called up in September, he pitched well in limited action. He was signed by the Marlins as a minor league free agent and seems to have a good chance to make what is shaping up to be a no-name pen provided the Fish don`t confuse him with Nate Bump.
2005 The Royals have long been fans of this undrafted indy league veteran, and Field started to reward their confidence in him last season. Sadly, his season ended two months early with a torn oblique muscle. Field dials it up to 94, even serving as the closer for a few days when the bullpen was melting down. As long as guys like this are available for the major league minimum—which is to say, forever—handing seven-figure contracts to the Jose Mesas of the world is pure folly.
