The Angels made a small roster move on Sunday morning, as the team announced they claimed infielder Jack Mayfield off waivers from the Seattle Mariners. They’ll be sending him to Triple-A Salt Lake.
If the name sounds familiar, well... it’s because he was with the Angels earlier in the season. The team designated Mayfield for assignment back on April 24. He was claimed off waivers by the Mariners a few days later.
In 11 games for Seattle, Mayfield hit .176 with an OPS of .406. He had a double, three runs driven in and scored two runs. Mayfield went 0-for-3 in his brief stint with the Angels earlier in the season.
The 30-year-old adds versatility in the field, as he’s able to play three different infield positions. Throughout his minor-league career, he’s spent 316 games at second base, 277 games at shortstop and 80 games at third base. During his brief major-league stint he’s spent 29 games at shortstop and 19 games at second base.
