Making his first start of the spring, Stephen Fife shut out the Braves for four innings to earn a win on Monday.
Fife hasn't pitched in the majors since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2014, but with a 1.50 ERA in 12 innings, he's making a strong bid for a spot on Miami's roster, presumably as a middle reliever. He's on a minor league deal and not on the 40-man, so it's still more likely that he'll go to Triple-A and await an opportunity. Mar 20 - 4:57 PM

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.

Sun, Aug 4, 2013 11:46:00 AM

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.
