But, that's not to say that he's entirely comfortable over there. In fact, he's been using Paul Konerko's glove.
"Paul's been gracious enough to let me use his gamer," Fields said. "He's a real good team player. He's got a lot of good lotions on it and it's really soft."
When asked about his comfort level at the new position, Fields pointed out that adjusting to new digs in the bigs isn't completely foreign to him. Brought up as a third baseman, he learned how to play left field when Joe Crede was holding down the hot corner.
For a guy who as recently as Monday was seeking answers about his future with the ballclub, Fields was quick to stress that he's looking to make the most of his playing time.
"You've got to make the most of the opportunities you have," Fields said. "We went out there and did some early work today and I feel good over there. You don't have to make as rangy of plays, you know, just keep your foot on the bag. If I can do that hopefully you can hide me over there a little bit."
