Fields was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fields has a fine 3.00 ERA and 1.04 WHIP on the season, but he has been atrocious in June. He has three blown saves and has allowed seven runs in just 5.2 innings this month, including a whopping five home runs. Hitters figured him out, and now he's out to make room for the return of Sergio Romo to the Dodgers bullpen.

Fields surrendered three runs on two hits and two walks and retired just two batters in Sunday's 8-7 win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Fields emerged as one of manager Dave Roberts' top setup arms after delivering a 0.84 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 21.1 innings over the first two months of the season, but he's been a disaster since the calendar flipped to June. In five appearances on the month, he's given up four runs -- all via the long ball -- in only five innings. Roberts may have Fields work out the kinks in middle relief in his subsequent appearances before the right-hander is trusted in high-leverage spots again.

Fields gave up two solo home runs over two-thirds of an inning Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

This was easily the 31-year-old's worst outing of the season, as it was the first time he gave up more than one earned run in 23 appearances. Fields still owns a 1.57 ERA on the year, but his 3.20 FIP -- due to an inflated 94.4 percent strand rate -- indicates a regression could be coming in the near future.

Fields fired a pair of scoreless innings while recording two strikeouts in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old has gotten off the best start of his career in 2017, posting a 0.55 ERA through 16.1 innings. A big part of veteran's success has been a career-best 7.0 K/BB ratio. His 92.3 percent strand rate seems unsustainable, but nothing else in his peripherals points to a big regression (1.18 FIP). Sergio Romo has struggled this season and Pedro Baez has been pitching above his head (5.11 FIP), so Fields could find himself becoming the Dodgers' top right-handed setup man if he keeps this up.

Fields pitched 1.1 scoreless innings without allowing a baserunner and recording two strikeouts to earn his first save of the season during Friday's win over San Diego.

EDGE Analysis

The save is a bit misleading, as Fields entered in the eighth inning when the Dodgers led 4-2. However, Los Angeles scored four runs in the top of the ninth, and Fields remained in the game to record the final three outs. It's likely Kenley Jansen would have pitched the ninth frame if it was still a save situation.

Fields has been recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles times reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Hyun-Jin Ryu being placed on the disabled list, the Dodgers need another arm for their bullpen. Fields was excellent in his first stint in the majors -- one earned run and 12 strikeouts over seven innings of work -- and was only a roster casualty because he is one of the few Dodgers pitchers with options remaining.

Fields was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Fields was brought up to fill the bullpen vacancy of the injured Grant Dayton, but sent back down upon the latter's return. Nonetheless, it was a solid stint for the right-hander, as he allowed just one earned run over five relief appearances and racked up six strikeouts. Look for Fields to be in line for a future call-up in the event of another bullpen opening.

Fields was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Fields was optioned to the minors Friday after Pedro Baez came off the disabled list, but will return to the Dodgers after Grant Dayton hit the DL with an intercostal strain Tuesday. Fields will round out the back-end of the Dodgers' bullpen.

Fields was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday, J.P. Hoonstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Pedro Baez (thumb) coming off the disabled list Friday, the Dodgers had to clear a spot on the roster and ultimately decided to send Fields back to Triple-A. Fields made four relief appearances in his brief stint with the Dodgers, striking out six batters over 3.0 scoreless frames. He figures to be one of the Dodgers' primary relief options should they need to make another bullpen move later in the season.

The Dodgers recalled Fields from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Fields takes the roster spot of Rich Hill, who was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday. Fields will merely act as a depth arm, likely only working mop-up sessions.
