The Dodgers have acquired Fields from the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Fields has struggled in his limited work with the Astros this season, posting a 6.89 ERA in just 15.2 innings of work. Down at Triple-A Fresno, Fields has had better success, compiling a 1.65 ERA in 27.1 innings. The 30-year-old relief pitcher will head to Triple-A Oklahoma City where he will give the Dodgers more bullpen depth.

Fields was optioned to Triple-A Fresno following Thursday's game, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fields was tagged with his 12th earned run in 15 appearances Thursday, so the Astros decided to send him down to give him a chance to iron things out. Fields appeared in 14 games with the Astros this season and at least 41 over the last three seasons, so he figures to be back with the big club at some point this summer.

Fields failed to record an out Tuesday, allowing two runs on four consecutive hits during Houston's 7-5 loss to Texas.

EDGE Analysis

Fields entered the game in the bottom of the sixth inning in relief of starter Scott Feldman and promptly gave up two singles and two doubles before he was removed from the game for Chris Devenski. The 30-year-old right-hander sports an 11.37 ERA, 2.21 WHIP and 8:1 K:BB ratio over 6.1 innings this season. He'll continue to work in low-leverage situations for the time being.

Fields has made three Grapefruit League appearances, allowing five baserunners and one run over two innings.

EDGE Analysis

Fields had a productive season with the Astros last season, posting a career-best 3.55 ERA (2.25 FIP), 1.14 WHIP and 11.9 K/9. He'll pitch in middle relief in 2016 with Ken Giles, Luke Gregerson, Pat Neshek, Will Harris and Tony Sipp handling the late-inning duties.

Fields agreed to a one-year, $900,000 deal with the Astros on Friday, avoiding arbitration, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old righty was excellent last season in a middle relief role, posting a 2.19 FIP with 67 strikeouts in 50.2 innings. After Houston acquired Ken Giles this offseason, any realistic hope of Fields finding his way to saves seems to have evaporated, but he should still be a solid source of ratios and strikeouts in 2016.

EDGE Analysis

This makes it official that Fields will return to the Astros in 2016. The 30-year-old had his most successful MLB campaign last season in the Houston bullpen, posting a 3.55 ERA and 1.14 WHIP, which he'll hope to carry into next season.

Fields was recalled from Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

His third major-league season has been his best by far, as Fields has posted a 2.20 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in 43 appearances this year after posting ERA in the mid-to-high 4.00s the last two seasons. Fields has a 13-game scoreless streak going, with just four hits and two walks allowed over that span. As good as his ratios have been, though, his utility will be limited mostly to leagues that count holds.
