The Dodgers continued their busy transactional week, recalling relief pitcher Pedro Baez from Double-A Chattanooga on Monday before their series against the Nationals. Stephen Fife, who started on Sunday afternoon in Miami, was optioned back to the Triple-A Albuquerque. The move figures to be temporary for Baez, as the Dodgers will need to make another roster move on Tuesday to activate Clayton Kershaw from the disabled list. But for now, the team gets an extra relief pitcher for one more game in the interim. Dodgers relievers have thrown 113 innings in 32 games this season, the second-most in the majors.
