JUL 17, 2012 3:19p ET
Fife, who will wear No. 56, is set to make his Major League debut tonight and has gone 7-5 with a 4.53 ERA in 18 starts with Triple-A Albuquerque this season. The 25-year-old has turned it on in his last eight starts and is 4-1 with a 2.78 ERA (14 ER/45.1 IP) since May 30, the fifth-lowest ERA in the Pacific Coast League in that span. Fife last pitched on July 6 against Round Rock (Rangers), allowing just two hits in 7.0 scoreless innings in the Isotopes’ 10-1 win. The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder was acquired by the Dodgers in a four-player trade with Boston at the 2011 trade deadline and was originally selected by Boston in the third round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft.
