LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers found a way to get that extra arm they needed, recalling Josh Fields from Triple-A Oklahoma City and placing Grant Dayton on the 10-day disabled list with a left intercostal strain.
Dayton has yet to allow a run this season in seven appearances, throwing 6⅓ innings. He allowed two hits, three walks (one intentional), with four strikeouts.
Dayton pitched one inning of relief on Monday night.
Fields was optioned to Oklahoma City on Friday, and was allowed to return within 10 days because he is replacing an injured player.
Fields, like Dayton, has yet to allow a run this season, pitching three scoreless frames in four appearances, with just one hit and one walk allowed. Fields has struck out six of his 11 major league batters faced this season.
Dayton is the ninth different Dodger to be placed on the disabled list in 2017. Last year, the club set a major league record with 28 different players on the DL.
