Withrow optioned to Minor League camp


GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Chris Withrow, who has been injured for most of Spring Training, was optioned to Minor League camp by the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Withrow, whose spring debut was delayed three weeks due to back spasms, finally got in a game on Sunday only to be injured when the second batter he faced lined a shot off of his left shin. He escaped with only a bruise.

Things were adventurous for Withrow before Spring Training started. He and his wife survived an offseason automobile accident in which their vehicle flipped over with only minor injuries.

Withrow, drafted in 2007 as a starter, is making the transition to reliever.
