The Los Angeles Dodgers' fifth rotation spot isn't sealed up yet with SP Chad Billingsley (elbow) returning from Tommy John surgery and SP Josh Beckett (thumb) dinged up. SP Paul Maholm went only 2 2/3 frames Thursday, March 13, and allowed six runs on six hits on a pair of home runs. Maholm will likely be in the bullpen if he cannot beat out Beckett for the final spot. Los Angeles won't need a fifth starter until the middle of April, however. SPs Stephen Fife and Seth Rosin may be options for the rotation if Beckett or Maholm don't work out.

Los Angeles Dodgers P Stephen Fife (shoulder) was able to pitch two innings at the minor-league complex Tuesday, Feb. 25. He has been brought along slowly as a precaution due to last year's shoulder bursitis.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will limit SP Stephen Fife's (shoulder) workload early in spring training in order to keep him healthy. Fife had shoulder bursitis late last season and went on the disabled list twice. "I was discouraged over the winter, because even in December, I didn't feel like I was getting any better," said Fife. "I still couldn't stretch my arm on a training table. But around Jan. 10, it really started to improve and it feels good now when I throw."

The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled SS Dee Gordon from the minors Monday, Aug. 5, and optioned SP Stephen Fife to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: This could be a sign that Hanley Ramirez is heading to the disabled list with a shoulder injury. There is no update on Ramirez's MRI exam. In deep mixed leagues, it wouldn't hurt to stash Gordon if you own Hanley or Jhonny Peralta or Everth Cabrera, who were suspended for 50 games Monday.

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke has been optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque, to make room for SP Stephen Fife (shoulder) on the 25-man roster.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly has lined up the rotation coming out of the All-Star break. Ricky Nolasco will start on Friday, July 19, followed by Zack Greinke, Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu, and either Chris Capuano or Stephen Fife (shoulder), who'll be eligible to return from the disabled list. Kershaw might move up depending on his use in the All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 16.
Fantasy Tip: The Capuano-Fife decision would affect NL-only players, so stay tuned.
