The Dodgers have recalled right-hander Pedro Baez from Double-A Chattanooga for tonight’s game against the Washington Nationals.
Baez had a 2.84 ERA in 12 ⅔ innings at Chattanooga, with six walks and eight strikeouts. A converted infielder who never made it past Double-A since joining the Dodgers’ system in 2007, Baez converted to pitching full-time only last year. He was added to the Dodgers’ 40-man roster last November.
Stephen Fife, who started Sunday’s game in Miami and left with a no-decision, was optioned back to Triple-A Albuquerque.
