The Minnesota Twins claimed outfield Sam Fuld off waivers from the Oakland Athletics and designated outfielder Darin Mastroianni for assignment Sunday, according to reports.
"Good for him," A's manager Bob Melvin told the Daily Journal, happy that Fuld was able to land a big league job. "He's a great fit for them. I would have been surprised if they had not picked him up."
Minnesota was awarded Fuld on Sunday at 12:05 and had to make immediate room on the 40-man roster for him, the Star Tribune reports, so the Twins designated Mastroianni, who was 0-for-11 in seven games for the Twins.
