White Sox claim outfielder Daniel Fields

The Chicago White Sox added to their outfielder pool Thursday by claiming Daniel Fields off waivers from the Los Angeles Dodgers and adding him to the 40-man roster.

Fields, 24, is a six-year minor leaguer, who played in one game in the major leagues for the Detroit Tigers this past season, getting a hit in three at-bats. He is a former sixth-round draft pick by the Tigers. Since Sept. 10, he has been claimed by the Milwaukee Brewers, Dodgers and now the White Sox.

Known for his defense, Fields is a .244 hitter in the minor leagues with 42 home runs and 260 RBIs and a .329 on-base percentage over 649 games. He is the son of former major league outfielder and hitting coach Bruce Fields.
