Fife passes through waivers, continues recovery

LOS ANGELES -- Stephen Fife, recovering from Tommy John elbow reconstruction, was outrighted to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday after clearing waivers.

The right-handed Fife, 28, pitched once for the Dodgers this year, a six-inning spot start in Miami on May 4 when he allowed four earned runs in a no-decision. He went 4-4 with a 3.86 ERA for the Dodgers in 2013, making 12 appearances (10 starts).

Fife underwent Tommy John surgery in August and will likely miss the entire 2015 season.
