Last night, following his demotion to Triple A, Chicago White Sox third baseman Josh Fields revealed that he has requested that White Sox GM Kenny Williams attempt to trade him before Friday’s trade deadline.

An article by posted on July 28, 2009 0 Comments

The New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch announced today on Twitter that the Mets have signed career minor leaguer Adam Pettyjohn to a minor-league deal and have assigned him to the Buffalo Bisons.
