Another One Bites the Dust: Bass to DL, Fields Recalled

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The injuries to the Astros bullpen continues with Anthony Bass being the latest victim. Josh Fields will fill his spot.

The rash of injuries to the bullpen continues.

The Houston Astros General Manager, Jeff Luhnow, announced Wednesday that Anthony Bass has been placed on the 15-Day Disabled List and and have recalled reliever Josh Fields from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Bass' injury will be back dated to May 11th and has been classified as a right intercostal strain. Bass has been a mixed bag so far this season with a 4.50 ERA and minuscule strikeout rate but has had a very good walk rate and low BABIP. Bass has been used in late inning situations a few times and been used in multiple inning stints as well.

Fields was unofficially used as a closer for the Astros earlier this season with three save opportunities in as many days and ended with a notable blown save in Seattle. Fields struggled from there on out and ultimately optioned to OkC to build his confidence. Fields seems to have possibly done that very thing with a save Tuesday night while striking out the side.
