Dodgers send lefty reliever Coulombe to Minors

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dodgers optioned left-handed reliever Daniel Coulombe to the Minor Leagues after Monday's game.

Coulombe, who made a meteoric rise last year from Class A to the Major Leagues, retired all three batters he faced Monday and didn't allow an earned run in 5 2/3 innings this spring.

Left-handed relievers still in camp are J.P. Howell, Paco Rodriguez, Adam Liberatore and David Huff.

Overall, there are 15 relievers in camp, not counting the injured Kenley Jansen.
