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:
Pitchers (12): Hyun-jin Ryu, Zack Greinke, Dan Haren, Paul Maholm, Kenley Jansen, Brian Wilson, Chris Perez, J.P. Howell, Paco Rodriguez, Chris Withrow, Jamey Wright, Brandon League
Catchers (2): A.J. Ellis, Drew Butera
Infielders (6): Adrian Gonzalez, Dee Gordon, Hanley Ramirez, Juan Uribe, Justin Turner, Chone Figgins
Outfielders (5): Carl Crawford, Andre Ethier, Yasiel Puig, Scott Van Slyke, Mike Baxter
Disabled list (6): Matt Kemp, Josh Beckett, Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Scott Elbert (60-day), Onelki Garcia (60-day)
Rosters have to be submitted to MLB by noon PT on Sunday.
