Field went 2-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI and two strikeouts in Wednesday's win over the Tigers. Field took starter Matthew Boyd deep for a solo homer in the second inning and then later knocked Boyd out of the game with a two-run shot in the fourth inning. The 26-year-old is now slashing .217/.251/.396 with nine homers and 20 RBI.
Field went 4-for-5 with a double, a homer, two RBI and two runs scored in a 9-6 win over Kansas City on Sunday. The rookie outfielder had a career day and hit his first long ball since June 1. Still, Field owns an unsightly .212 average in 203 at-bats with the Twins and Rays this season.
Field has been called up from Triple-A Rochester. Field has hit just .200/.240/.346 in the majors this season, but he could get some spot starts in September with Eddie Rosario hurt.
Field was optioned to Triple-A Rochester following Saturday's game, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. An 0-for-2 showing in Saturday's game dropped Fields' batting line to .200/.240/.346 for the season. The expectation is that Robbie Grossman will take his place on the roster. Fields may be up in September, although it's not a lock that he's still on the Twins' 40-man when rosters expand.
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.
