Field signed a minor league deal with a spring training invite with the Twins on Thursday, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports. Field didn't reach the majors in 2016 and hit .235/.313/.413 with 11 home runs at the Twins' Triple-A affiliate in Rochester. The 29-year-old will likely be on the outside looking in for a major league roster spot in spring training.
Field signed a minor league deal with the Twins on Saturday, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Star Tribune reports. Field most recently played for the Tiger's Triple-A affiliate in Toledo. He was hitting .162/.295/.189 though 44 plate appearances before being released. He will play in Triple-A Rochester for the Twins.
Field went 0-for-3 and scored a run with a 1:1 BB:K in Triple-A Toledo's 10-2 win over Louisville on Thursday. Field didn't have a noticeable spring, going 4-for-24 with a pair of runs scored and his only RBI coming off of a solo home run. Even if Field had a great spring, he still would've been behind Dixon Machado on the call-up list, as Machado is Detroit's prized middle infield prospect.
Field signed a minor league contract with the Tigers on Wednesday that includes an invite to spring training, MLive.com reports. The 28-year-old was given a brief look with the Rangers early last season, but failed to impress and was ultimately designated for assignment. He did fare far better with Triple-A Round Rock (.247/.347/.439) and has earned a chance to compete for a job with Detroit as a result, but chances are Field will start the year back in the minors.
After not being claimed by a team, Rangers infielder Tommy Field accepted his assignment to the team's Triple-A club, reports FoxSportsSouthWest.com. The Rangers designated Field for assignment last Saturday. He hit .195 with two home runs in 41 at-bats for the Rangers this season.
