Player Notes
Brandon McCarthy pitched well in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits over his 5 1/3 innings.

Advice: The veteran right-hander punched out six on the afternoon and walked just one. It was a nice return to the rotation for McCarthy, who was thrust into emergency duty when the club pushed Rich Hill's next start back. He could stick in the rotation to make another start next week, and would be worth a look as a streaming option in that case.

Sun, Sep 25 Rotoworld
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.

Sat, Sep 24 Rotoworld
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.
