The right-handed reliever was jettisoned to make room on the active roster for Wednesday night's starting pitcher.

LOS ANGELES -- As expected, the Dodgers activated Josh Beckett from the 15-day disabled list to make his start on Wednesday night against the Tigers. To clear room on the active roster, relief pitcher Jose Dominguez was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Dominguez allowed four runs in three innings in his three games with the Dodgers this season, with five strikeouts and two walks. All three appearances by Dominguez came in low-leverage situations: ahead six runs, down eight, and down four.

After allowing three runs in his one appearance in Australia, Dominguez was optioned to Albuquerque on March 30 as the Dodgers trimmed down to 25 players on the active roster for the domestic opener in San Diego. He was recalled on April 2 when Brian Wilson was placed on the disabled list.

Dominguez, 23, pitched in two games against the Giants over the weekend, faced nine batters, struck out five and allowed four fly balls, one of which left the park.

His 97 mph average heater is the second-fastest average fastball in baseball this season.
