Pirates Outright Tommy Field to Indianapolis

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced that infielder Tommy Field has cleared waivers and he has been assigned to Indianapolis. Field was put on waivers on Sunday when the Pirates claimed pitcher Bobby LaFromboise from the San Diego Padres. Field himself was picked up off waivers from the Angels less than three weeks ago. Since joining Indianapolis, he has hit .297/.400/.324 in ten games.

  • Huntington has probably been the most active GM on the waiver wire this year. Hopefully there will a lot more depth at the AAA level next year. A lot of Altoona players should be graduating to Indy in the coming season (Hanson, Allie, Garcia, Ngoepe, Broxton, Gamache, maybe Maggi).
