I don't recall Kam Fields appearing in any game so far this season.  Injured....in the dog house...other?

Also, last season Lance Ford started most games at 2B.  I don't think he has played in any game this season... Injured...Redshirting....In dog house...going to transfer...other?

Thanks

I had the same thought watching the game last night on Fields.

Fields has made one appearance and didn’t look all that great. 
 

Ford has seen spot duty, but I think the younger players are what Pierce and Co are looking at for 2B. Also I think the younger guys might be looking better in practice at this point. 
 

On both we should keep in mind that early in the season, Pierce has shown a tendency to shuffle lineups to find the right mix of production, talent and leadership. I think this trend will continue in the coming weeks.
