UPDATE: Fife went 5 1/3 innings, struck out five and yielded five hits, two walks and one run in the Dodgers’ 2-1 win over the Padres, giving him his first MLB victory. The Dodgers’ PR department (@DodgersPR) posted the photo above after Fife’s win.
ORIGINAL POST: Stephen Fife, a 2005 graduate of Borah High, will be the starting pitcher Monday night for the Los Angeles Dodgers against the San Diego Padres (8:10 p.m. MDT).
The Dodgers scratched starter Chris Capuano (triceps) and called up Fife from Triple-A Albuquerque. Fife was put on the disabled list on April 27 with a shoulder injury. He made one rehab start at High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Tuesday before being called up to Albuquerque. He was supposed to start there Sunday, but was held back because the Dodgers were uncertain of Capuano’s status.
Fife will be searching for his first MLB win. He has started once for the Dodgers this season, giving up four earned runs while striking out five and walking one in 4 2/3 innings on April 21 against Baltimore. He started five games in 2012, posting a 2.70 ERA.
The Dodgers also called up rookie outfielder Yasiel Puig on Monday — he’s hit .328 with 13 home runs in 63 career minor league games at the Single-A and Double-A levels.
