Lee optioned to Minor League camp

PHOENIX -- The Dodgers optioned right-hander Zach Lee to Minor League camp on Sunday, essentially making Mike Bolsinger the fifth starter, although Bolsinger was a late scratch on Sunday with abdominal tightness and is listed as day to day.

Brandon Beachy was in the final trio of contenders, but he has been sidelined for several days with tendinitis in his right arm, which has previously endured two Tommy John surgeries.

Prior to Sunday's scratch, Bolsinger had a 2.00 ERA in three appearances. He made 21 starts for the Dodgers last season and went 6-6 with a 3.62 ERA, with his best work done in the first half of the season.

Lee had a 4.50 ERA this spring in three appearances and a .232 opponents batting average. He made one start for the Dodgers last season.
