Sam Fuld, designated for assignment by the A's on April 12, has been claimed off waivers by the Twins, the A’s announced today.

Fuld, 32, was the odd man out when the A’s activated Craig Gentry from the disabled list. In only seven games this season, Fuld quickly became a fan-favorite for his feisty, energetic play. He has a career batting line of .233/.312/.334. and his only homer this season came against the Twins at Target Field on April 10.
