FIELD HEADS TO TRIBE -- The Cleveland Indians Tuesday claimed outfielder Johnny Field off waivers from the Rays. The outfielder was designated for assignment on Friday in order to make room for catcher Adam Moore to be selected to the roster.
Field appeared in 62 games with the Rays in 2018, hitting .213/.253/.373 with six home runs and 14 RBI, but ended his big-league tenure with Tampa Bay by going 4 for his last 44 with 20 strikeouts.
