Astros recall Clemens, place Fields on DLApril 8, 2013 @ 4:37 pm (Updated: 6:23 pm - 4/8/13 )
SEATTLE (AP) - Reliever Josh Fields has been placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Houston Astros with a right forearm strain.
The Astros made the move on Monday ahead of their series opener against the Seattle Mariners, retroactive to April 4. Houston recalled Paul Clemens from Triple-A Oklahoma City to take Fields' spot. It is Clemens first appearance on an active major league roster.
Fields was the first-round draft pick of the Mariners in 2008. He was taken in the first-round of the 2012 Rule 5 Draft from the Boston Red Sox organization and made the Astros opening day roster after posting a 2.31 ERA in 12 spring training appearances. Fields had faced just two batters this season.
Clemens made one start for Oklahoma City this season.
