Fields, 28, made 14 appearances and collected two saves for the Astros after making the Opening Day roster this season. He was optioned to Triple A OKC on May 6 and has made three hitless and scoreless appearances for the RedHawks, with one save and four strikeouts in 3.0 innings pitched.

Bass, 26, is 1-0 with two saves and a 4.50 ERA (9ER/18IP) in 15 games for Houston this season. He leads the club with four holds and has allowed just a .239 (17x71) opponent's batting average in 2014. He has 90 career Major League appearances with San Diego (2011-13) and Houston (2014). Bass was acquired via trade from the Padres this offseason on Dec. 11, 2013.

The Astros 40-man roster remains at 39.
