Outfielder Daniel Fields was acquired by the Dodgers twice in the last calendar year, though he didn't make the majors in his time with the team.

What went right

Fields was claimed off waivers from Milwaukee on Dec. 7, 2015.

Fields was designated for assignment on Dec. 30, 2015 to make room on the 40-man roster for Scott Kazmir.

On Jan. 7, 2016, the White Sox claimed Fields off waivers from the Dodgers.

Though his time on the 40-man roster lasted only 23 days (not even during the season), and though he was with another team a month later, Fields found his way back to the Dodgers in June on a minor league deal.

Fields, who played one game in the majors in 2015 with the Tigers, played at three different minor league levels for the Dodgers in 2016 — five games for Class-A Great Lakes, five games for Double-A Tulsa, and 10 games for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He played all three outfield positions.

What went wrong

Fields hit just .213/.300/.328 in those 20 games, with eight walks and 24 strikeouts in 70 plate appearances.

The Dodgers released Fields on Aug. 4.
