Player Notes
Brandon McCarthy threw two simulated innings on a back field Sunday.

Advice: "He looks good," said manager Dave Roberts. "He's executing pitches." McCarthy is on track with the other starters in Dodgers camp up to this point, but he'll have to continue pitching well to win back a spot in the rotation. The veteran right-hander holds a 5.29 ERA in his two years with Los Angeles, over just 63 innings.

Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi said he was very impressed with Brandon McCarthy's live batting practice session on Tuesday.

Advice: McCarthy has been throwing with full velocity since late January as he tries to fight his way back into the Dodgers' starting rotation. The 33-year-old right-hander owns a rough 5.29 ERA in 63 innings through his first two seasons with Los Angeles. He finished 2016 with a miserable relief appearance against the rival Giants in which he yielded six runs in the sixth inning while recording zero outs.
