Fields was claimed off waivers by the White Sox on Thursday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Fields was placed on waivers after being DFA'd by the Dodgers on Dec. 30 to clear room on the 40-man roster for Scott Kazmir. He spent the majority of the 2015 season with the Tigers at Triple-A Toledo. He'll likely compete for a depth outfield spot in spring training.
Fields was designated for assignment Wednesday. The Dodgers signed pitcher Scott Kazmir on Wednesday, prompting the club to designate Fields in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. The 24-year-old outfielder spent most of the 2015 campaign in the Tigers organization, batting .228 with 25 doubles at Triple-A Toledo.
Fields was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers on Monday. The Brewers claimed Fields off waivers in early September, but obviously didn't see enough in him to feel he warranted keeping on the 40-man roster. The Dodgers appear willing to take that chance for the time being, however, but Fields' lack general power and speed requires he hit for a high average to be worthy of a 40-man spot. He didn't do so the last couple of seasons, and it will likely be a challenge for him to find his way to the majors unless he can turn things around relatively quickly.
The Brewers have claimed outfielder Daniel Fields off waivers from Detroit. He has been optioned to Double-A Biloxi.
The Tigers designated center fielder Daniel Fields for assignment on Tuesday, the team announced. Fields was optioned to Triple-A back in July.
