Dodgers option rookie Buehler to minors after relief outing
The team says Buehler was sent to Class-A Rancho Cucamonga before Friday night’s game against Colorado.
The Dodgers had no choice in making the move since he had been activated on Thursday, when Buehler gave up five runs in one-plus inning of relief in an 11-5 loss to the Cubs. There was no indication when Buehler will next pitch or when he would be recalled to the big-league team.
Buehler originally was set to make a rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday after missing 19 days with a rib microfracture.
