HOUSTON -- Astros reliever Josh Fields was taken out of Saturday's game while warming up to go back in for the top of the ninth inning with a muscle strain in his right forearm.
"He felt it on the second warmup pitch and felt some discomfort," said Astros manager Bo Porter. "So at that point there's no sense in trying to work through it right there. We allowed the trainers and doctors to take a look at him."
Fields was replaced by Josh Zeid, who retired the Rays in order in Houston's 7-3 win at Minute Maid Park.
