Twins re-signed 2B Tommy Field to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

After being released by the Tigers in May, Field latched on with the Twins' Triple-A club and hit just well enough to salvage his career. He hit 11 home runs in 82 games although his .235 batting average wasn't pretty. The 29-year-old has had cups of coffee with the Rockies, Angels and Rangers over the years. He will serve as organizational depth again this season.

Rangers 2B prospect Tommy Field extended his home run streak to four games Tuesday in a loss for Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers sent INF Tommy Field outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

Rangers designated infielder Tommy Field for assignment.

We'd take Field over Adam Rosales if we were in the Rangers' spot, but both are fringe guys. Field hit .195/.250/.366 in 41 at-bats while sharing time with Rosales at second base. This could be taken as a sign that Rougned Odor will be back in the majors soon. In the meantime, the Rangers still have Delino DeShields Jr. as an alternative to Rosales at second base.

He's taking Rougned Odor's spot on the roster and is starting at second base Monday. Field, 28, was batting .298/.373/.538 with five homers at Round Rock. He should see a decent amount of playing time at second, although Adam Rosales figures to be the main guy there for now.

The Pirates determined that Bobby LaFromboise was a better use of a 40-man roster spot than Field, who has just claimed off waivers earlier this month. It's possible he'll clear waivers and remain in the organization.
