After being designated for assignment by the Oakland A's last Saturday, outfielder Sam Fuld has reportedly been claimed off waivers by the Minnesota Twins. 

While Fuld doesn't offer much offensive production (he hit just .199 and had a .537 OPS in 200 plate appearances last season) he adds value off the bench as a versatile fielder and a strong baserunner. 

The diminutive utility man has also managed to endear himself to fans and teammates at every stop with his attitude, professionalism, and scrappy play.

As some have pointed out, he should be a perfect fit in Minnesota.
