The Dodgers optioned RHP Mike Bolsinger and RHP Zach Lee to Triple-A Oklahoma City, the team announced on Friday. Bolsinger was 5-3 with a 2.83 ERA in 16 starts this year. Lee was 0-1 with a 13.50 ERA in his only start with the Dodgers.
Dodgers pitcher Zach Lee had a rough MLB debut on Saturday, giving up seven runs in a loss. He'll get another chance, however. Manager Don Mattingly said that Lee wasn't optioned back to Triple-A following the spot start. "We need a fifth starter, don't we?" Mattingly said, per the LA Times. Lee is in line to make his second career start on Sunday.
Dodgers young right-hander Zach Lee got blasted in his big-league debut on Saturday night, as the Mets pounded the Dodgers 15-2. Lee was unable to get anything going in the game, as he gave up seven runs on 11 hits over 4 2/3 innings. He threw 90 pitches with just 56 going for strikes. Lee (0-1) got off to a rough start, as he allowed four runs to score in the first inning, putting the Dodgers down 4-0 early. He gave up a solo home run to new Met Kelly Johnson in the third inning, before allowing two more in the fifth prior to being pulled from the game. It is not yet known if Lee will stick around for another start, or if he will head back to the minor leagues.
As expected, the Dodgers recalled Zach Lee from Triple-A to start Saturday's game. To make room for Lee on the roster, the team optioned pitcher Ian Thomas to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Thomas was 1-1 in three games, one start, for the Dodgers.
The Dodgers announced that pitcher Zach Lee will make his MLB debut, starting Saturday's game against the Mets. Lee will be promoted from Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he's 7-3 with a 2.36 ERA in 12 starts. The team will announce the move, and a corresponding move to clear a spot on the roster for him, later in the day.
