Daniel 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 Los Angeles 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.
Daniel Fields was designated for assignment Wednesday.
The Los Angeles 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.
Daniel Fields was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles 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.
"I just gotta keep battling and keep working hard," Fields said, per Mlive.com. "Hopefully when I come up here (next time), I can come up here to stay."
Fields was 1 for 3 with two strike outs during his MLB debut Thursday.
"I knew it was going to be a short stay here," he said. "But I mean, it was great. This is something I'm going to remember for the rest of my life."
