RHP. Dodgers. JOSH FIELDS. A-.

Josh Fields has been one of the bright spots in the bullpen all year-long. Even though he was just placed on the 10-day disabled list, Fields has shown he is more than capable of competing during October. In his 47 appearances for Los Angeles in 2017, his 2.68 ERA is saving Dave Roberts from a lot of trouble.

In August, it was more of the same story for Josh Fields. In 10 appearances, he threw 9 1/3 innings, giving up just 2 earned runs. That means he held some pretty high-powered opponents to a 1.86 earned run average for the month. More importantly, Fields proved that he could handle the Diamondbacks with ease, the team that the Dodgers are likely to face in a Divisional series. In his 2 innings of work against them, he struck out 1 and only gave up one hit.

Fields looks like he is for sure going to make the post season roster, barring any setbacks from his strained back.
