Dodgers reinstated RHP Stephen Fife from the 60-day disabled list; sent him outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Fife had Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in August and won't be back until late 2015, so the Dodgers wanted to make room on their 40-man roster. Fife allowed four earned runs in six innings of work with the Dodgers in 2014.

Stephen Fife was rocked for four runs on six hits over just 2 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Fife was making his 10th spot start. He may have ensured that it will be his last. The right-hander from Boise has a decent 3.86 ERA in 58 1/3 innings, but his good fortune in achieving that number becomes apparent when considering Fife's 1.53 WHIP and 45/20 K/BB ratio. Fife has coughed up 11 earned runs in 7 1/3 innings since the Dodgers recalled him from the minors earlier this month.

Stephen Fife (shoulder) allowed one run on three hits over seven innings in his second rehab start Sunday with Triple-A Albuquerque.

Fife has been out since July 7 due to a right shoulder injury, but is close to being activated from the disabled list. He only gave up one walk and had seven strikeouts in the outing. The Dodgers haven't ruled out using a six-man rotation once he's healthy enough to return.

Stephen Fife (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque Monday.

Fife is scheduled to throw 70 pitches in the outing. It's possible that might be the only rehab start he'll need before being activated. Whether or not he'll rejoin the Dodgers' rotation at that time remains to be seen.

Dodgers placed RHP Stephen Fife on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 7, with right shoulder bursitis.

Fife spent time on the DL earlier this season with shoulder inflammation. It's poor timing, as he had been pitching well since coming back at the beginning of June, posting a 2.20 ERA. Chris Capuano will rejoin the rotation on Thursday versus the Rockies.
