Dodgers place Rich Hill on DL, recall Josh Fields

The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed left-handed pitcher Rich Hill on the 10-day disabled list (retroactive to April 6) with a blister on his left middle finger and recalled right-hander Josh Fields from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Fields, 31, allowed nine runs in 8.1 innings (9.72 ERA) in nine Spring Training appearances prior to being optioned on March 28. Fields was acquired by the Dodgers on Aug. 1, 2016 from the Astros in exchange for minor league infielder Yordan Alvarez and went 1-0 with a 2.79 ERA in 22 games with Los Angeles last year.

Hill picked up the win for the Dodgers on Wednesday, allowing one run on two hits in 5.0 innings and throwing 75 pitches in the club's 3-1 win over San Diego. Hill also missed time last year due to a blister and was on the DL from July 20-Aug. 24 with that issue.
