Field was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports. Field will join the Twins for the first time since being claimed off waivers over the weekend. The 26-year-old will take the roster spot of Robbie Grossman, who was sent to the disabled list with a hamstring strain in a corresponding roster move. Field owns a lackluster .213/.253/.373 slash line across 62 major-league games this season and should primarily serve as a reserve outfielder during his time with the big club.
Field was claimed off waivers by the Twins on Friday and optioned to Triple-A Rochester, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Field was recently DFA'd by the Indians after joining the organization just over a week ago last Tuesday. Prior to his stint in Cleveland, he played in 63 games for the Rays this year, slashing .213/.253/.373 with six home runs, 14 RBI and four stolen bases.
Field was claimed off waivers by the Indians on Tuesday and optioned to Triple-A Columbus, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Cleveland is lacking organizational outfield depth and will bring in Field, who was designated for assignment by the Rays last weekend. However, he could very well be cut again if the Indians swing more trades in the next week leading up to the deadline. Field hit just .213/.253/.373 with 58 strikeouts in 179 plate appearances with Tampa Bay.
Field was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Tuesday. With Field falling out of his regular role, the Rays will send him to Triple-A to get regular work. He hit .213/.253/.373 with six home runs and four steals in 179 plate appearances with the big club. Ji-Man Choi was recalled in a corresponding move.
Field is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Nationals, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Field will head to the bench for the third straight contest and for the fourth time in six games. The rookie had settled in as the Rays' primary left fielder earlier this month, but the recent return of Kevin Kiermaier from the disabled list has pushed Field to the bench on a more regular basis. If Field had been running hot at the plate, the Rays likely would have found a way to consistently squeeze him into the starting nine, but he has submitted an ugly .172/.213/.276 line across 20 June games.
