LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers right-hander Stephen Fife began a Minor League rehab assignment on Tuesday night, pitching four innings with Class A Rancho Cucamonga.

Fife, recovering from right shoulder bursitis, allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits against Lancaster. He struck out three against one walk and gave up a two-run homer.

Fife began the season at Triple-A Albuquerque and was called up on April 21 to start at Baltimore in place of the injured Chad Billingsley. Fife allowed four runs on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings in that outing, and went on the disabled list later that week.

He is one of six Dodgers starters to spend time on the DL this season.
