Player Notes
Dodgers transferred RHP Brandon McCarthy from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Advice: McCarthy underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery Thursday in Los Angeles and will likely be sidelined until the 2016 All-Star break. The right-hander was in the first year of a four-year, $48 million free agent contract with the Dodgers. He tore the UCL in his right elbow during a start Saturday against the Padres.

Brandon McCarthy will have Tommy John surgery Thursday to repair a torn right ulnar collateral ligament.

Advice: Dr. Neal ElAttrache will perform the surgery. It's a brutal blow for the right-hander, who can't seem to catch a break, injury-wise. McCarthy won't be back with the Dodgers until around the 2016 All-Star break.

Dodgers placed RHP Brandon McCarthy on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 26, with a torn right ulnar collateral ligament.

Advice: He'll undergo Tommy John surgery and be sidelined until around the All-Star break next season. McCarthy, who is in the first year of a four-year, $48 million contract, posted a 5.87 ERA but had a 29/4 K/BB ratio over 23 innings in four starts this season with the Dodgers. Scott Baker will remain in the rotation for now, although the club will need an additional starter soon.

Brandon McCarthy has been diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Advice: It's really a bummer for the Dodgers but especially for McCarthy, who had seemed to finally put his shoulder issues behind him and show signs of blossoming. He'll undergo Tommy John surgery soon and be sidelined into the 2016 season. With Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) also still a question mark, the Dodgers might be scour the trade market for rotation help. For now, Scott Baker and Mike Bolsinger could stick around for a while.

Initial tests for possible ligament damage in Brandon McCarthy's right elbow came back negative.

Advice: It doesn't mean he definitely doesn't have a ligament issues -- we'll know for sure after his MRI -- but it's certainly a good sign. The hope is that McCarthy is "only" dealing with tendinitis. He's looking at a stint on the disabled list either way, but surgery won't be required if it's a tendinitis issue. McCarthy admitted that he's been dealing with tightness in his elbow since his last start but it finally became too much on Saturday.
