Fister (1-7) allowed six hits and five runs in five innings, remaining winless in 10 starts since beating the Astros in his Texas debut on the second day of the season.
Marwin Gonzalez had a tying RBI double in the second before the speedy Tony Kemp’s infield single put the Astros in front for good. Springer followed with a liner into the corner in left field.
Choo, who extended his majors-leading streak of reaching base to 24 games, also had a walk and a bunt single.
McCain, who played collegiately at Memphis, was selected by the Dolphins in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He has registered 111 total tackles, two sacks and three interceptions in his three-year career.
The Dolphins missed the playoffs last season after finishing with a 6-10 record.
The Dodgers have shuttled pitchers both because of injury-related necessity and because the past few years they’ve in general been extremely flexible with the constitution of their roster. Last season, the Dodgers led the majors by total number of in-season transactions. This year, they are second, behind the Mets.
The other team in last year’s World Series, the champion Astros, have had a quiet transaction wire since winning their first title. Houston easily had the fewest players in its spring training camp, with very few non-roster invitees, and hasn’t seen any more turnover now that the season is underway. Houston’s only two pitcher-related options both involved sending out James Hoyt. Overall, the Astros have appeared on the transaction wire since Opening Day just 27 times. The Mets, who we mentioned have made the most moves, have appeared 118 times.
