Player Notes
Dodgers activated RHP Brandon McCarthy from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: McCarthy made it through a five-inning simulated game on Tuesday without any issues. It's unclear if he'll work out of the bullpen upon his return or if he'll have a shot to return to the starting rotation.

Brandon McCarthy (hip) threw a five-inning simulated game on Tuesday afternoon.

Advice: It lasted about 75 pitches. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he'll wait until Wednesday to see how McCarthy feels before revealing the next course of action for the rehabbing right-hander. McCarthy struggled badly with his control in August before landing back on the disabled list with a hip injury. He's been limited to eight MLB starts in 2016, largely due to his recovery from Tommy John elbow surgery.

Brandon McCarthy (elbow) will throw 75 pitches in a simulated game on Tuesday.

Advice: McCarthy struggled with his control in a three-start stretch with the Dodgers in August before landing on the DL with hip soreness. He was hit hard in a minor league rehab start from there, but there were positive reports coming out of a simulated game last week. The Dodgers haven't ruled him out from returning, but it's unclear what role he could have down the stretch or doing the postseason.
