During a time where there is a lot of uncertainty on how the Los Angeles Dodgers’ season will continue and if they will in fact make another magical postseason run, there seems to be a lot of talk about possibly changing things up, not only on the big league roster, but also in the minor league affiliates as well.

According to Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times, pitcher Pedro Baez was promoted from Double-A Chattanooga to Triple-A Albuquerque:

So far in the young season, Baez has obviously been impressive. He has pitched 19.1 innings with a 2-1 record. In his 17 games that he has appeared in, Baez has totaled 18 strikeouts and has an ERA of 2.79. His numbers speak for himself as the reason why he was promoted to Triple A.

Unfortunately not all of the news is good. Hernandez also reports Stephen Fife has landed on the disable list due to right forearm tightness:

Fife’s trip to the DL could be a blessing in a way. The right-hander has not gotten off to the start that he had hoped. So far this season pitching for the Isotopes, Fife has started five games and appeared in relief twice. He has totaled an ERA of 6.94 and only 13 strikeouts on his way to a record of 1-2.
