Dodgers recalled RHP Josh Fields from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Fields came over from the Astros in exchange for Yordan Alvarez. The team initially optioned him to Triple-A on Tuesday before turning back around and promoting him on Wednesday. After being demoted by the Astros in May, the 30-year-old right-hander pitched to a 1.65 ERA with a 32/7 K/BB ratio (27 1/3 innings) for Triple-A Fresno. He figures to see relatively low-level work with the Dodgers, at least initially.
