The Dodgers announced today that they have activated righty Josh Fields from the 60-day disabled list. To clear a 40-man roster spot, the organization designated corner infielder/outfielder Rob Segedin for assignment. Righty Yimi Garcia was optioned to open active roster space.
Fields has missed a lengthy stretch owing to shoulder issues. His return is most welcome for a Los Angeles organization that has had its share of bullpen woes. In 34 1/3 innings earlier this year, Fields worked to a 2.36 ERA with 7.3 K/9 and 2.4 BB/9.
The 29-year-old Segedin, meanwhile, received brief MLB action with L.A. in each of the prior two seasons, though he was not able to match his healthy Triple-A output at the game’s highest level. This year, he has fallen well short of his usual numbers at Oklahoma City, slashing just .211/.299/.325 in 134 plate appearances.
