Josh Fields has been optioned to Oklahoma City, and Josh Zeid has been recalled from OKC to take his bullpen spot.
Fields' struggles for the past two weeks are well-documented. Since April 23 Fields has pitched in five games. He has faced 26 batters and retired just nine of them. In those 3IP, he has allowed 14H/14ER, 4K:3BB with a .765 BABIP, 16.7% HR/FB rate, 42.00 ERA to go alongside an 8.78 FIP and 7.01 xFIP. In other words, this is an overdue visit to a farm in Connecticut.
Zeid, meanwhile, is racking it up at OKC. In his last six outings (5.2IP) he has allowed 1H/0ER, 8K:0BB and has a 2.19 ERA/0.97 WHIP on the season.
