Dodgers option Jose Dominguez to make room for Stephen Fife

Cameron Spencer

The flurry of roster moves continue for the Dodgers.

MIAMI, Florida -- The Dodgers made official after Saturday night's game what was expected, that Stephen Fife will start the series finale against the Marlins on Sunday morning. Relief pitcher Jose Dominguez was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Fife was 4-4 with a 3.86 ERA in 12 games, including 10 starts for the Dodgers in 2013. He was 1-2 with a 7.08 ERA in six games, including four starts for Triple-A Albuquerque in 2014. He last started on April 26, pitching six scoreless frames against Fresno. He pitched a scoreless inning of relief on Wednesday night for the Isotopes as well.

Dominguez has been up with the Dodgers for four different stints already this season, striking out eight in 6⅓ innings in his five appearances. But he also walked three and allowed eight runs and seven hits for an 11.57 ERA. The 23-year-old fireballer has also pitched in four games for the Isotopes this season, putting up a 1.80 ERA with one save, eight strikeouts and one walk in five innings.

The Dodgers on Friday just recalled Dominguez, who allowed two runs on three hits and a walk in the series opener to the Marlins, recording the final four outs of the game.

The Dodgers and Marlins conclude their three-game series on Sunday morning at 10:10 a.m. PT, with the halfway decent Jose Fernandez getting the start for Miami.
