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.
As expected, the Rangers called up Alex "Chi Chi" Gonzalez to start Saturday's game. To make room for Chi Chi on the roster, the Rangers designated infielder Tommy Field for assignment. Gonzalez was 3-5 with a 4.15 ERA at Triple-A Round Rock. Field was hitting .195 in 14 games for the Rangers.
