DETROIT -- Josh Fields said Friday that his right knee is sore after taking a line drive off it Thursday, but X-rays were negative, and it doesn't appear he'll have to miss too much time.
Fields exited Thursday's game against the Tigers in the bottom of the ninth inning when a comeback line drive hit the outside of his right knee as he finished his follow-through. He began to run toward first base to make a play on the ball, but he started hobbling.
