McFarland gave up two hits over two scoreless innings during Saturday's 5-1 win over the Phillies. He struck out two batters.

McFarland was on the mound for the first time in more than a week after getting roughed up for four runs (three earned) while recording only four outs his last time out June 9 against the Brewers. With the exception of that blowup, McFarland has proven himself as a capable innings eater out of the bullpen, though it's not expected he'll settle into more high-leverage work in the near future. McFarland is carrying a 1.74 ERA and 16:5 K:BB over 20.2 innings on the season.
