Sam Fuld, designated for assignment by #Athletics, claimed off waivers by MNTwins.Fuld, a career .233 hitter, lacks power (7 HR in 743 at-bats) but makes up for that with his speed and defensive prowess. He has a .988 fielding percentage in the outfield between his time with the Chicago Cubs, Tampa Bay Rays, and the Oakland Athletics. The Twins are a small ball type of club who rotate their starters frequently. There is a good chance he'll see a lot of playing time and possibly fit his way into the starting lineup.
