ANAHEIM -- The Dodgers optioned relief pitcher Jose Dominguez to Triple-A Albuquerque before their game Saturday night against the Angels, coupled with placing ace Clayton Kershaw on the 15-day disabled list all but finalizing their 25-man roster for the regular season opener on Sunday in San Diego.
Dominguez, 23, had a 2.16 ERA in eight spring training contests, with 10 strikeouts and two walks in 8⅓ innings. He started the ninth inning with a 7-1 lead in the second game against the Diamondbacks in Australia, but walked two and allowed a hit to his four batters faced, allowing three runs.
In his only exhibition outing since the Australia trip, the right-hander allowed four hits and four runs (two earned) while recording only one out on Thursday night against the Angels.
Barring injuries or something unforeseen in Saturday night's game against the Angels, the Dodgers' domestic Opening Day active roster is now set:
Rosters have to be submitted to MLB by noon PT on Sunday.
