Field's brief stint with Twins is done

The Minnesota Twins claimed Thomas Field off waivers from the Colorado Rockies at the beginning of the month.  Less than four weeks later, the Los Angeles Angels of Aneheim claimed him from the Twins.

Field is a 25-year-old player, who has played second base, shortstop, and right field.  Having seen 18 major league games in the last two years, he probably wouldn’t make a significant impact for his major league team.  In fact, it’s reasonable to wonder if he would see any playing time above AAA.

With Field claimed and Denard Span traded to the Washington Nationals, the Twins roster sits at 38.  Could the Twins fill the two open spots with signing at the December 3-6 Winter Meetings or the December 6 Rule 5 Draft?
