Rios was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Rios has little left to prove at the Triple-A level, having hit .302/.351/.528 in 139 games, but the Dodgers' roster isn't an easy one to break into. It may take an injury ahead of him for him to make his big-league debut.
Rios (illness) went 1-for-3 with a double in Sunday's game against the Rangers.
As expected, Rios returned to action over the weekend after missing some time last week due to an illness. The youngster, who is expected to open the season in the minors, is 2-for-11 with a pair of extra-base hits through four spring games.
Rios (illness) is expected to return to game action Sunday against the Rangers, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
