    • McCarthy (finger) will be activated from the 60-day DL next Friday, when the Dodgers begin their final homestand, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Although McCarthy appears to be on the verge of a return to the big-league club following Friday's rehab start with Triple-A Tulsa, the Dodgers will wait to bring him back until next weekend. There hasn't been much word on whether he will rejoin the rotation or take on a role in the bullpen, but that information will likely become known over the course of this upcoming week. Since McCarthy is currently off the 40-man roster, and the Dodgers are playing with a full roster at the moment, the team will need to make a corresponding move when it reinstates the right-hander.

    • McCarthy (finger) looked good in Friday's rehab start and appears ready to rejoin the Dodgers, Barry Lewis of the Tulsa World reports. He gave up two earned runs on five hits and zero walks with two strikeouts in six innings for Triple-A Tulsa, throwing 50 of his 71 pitches for strikes. The Dodgers will likely activate him from the 60-day DL when eligible Sept. 19, and he could slot into the rotation next week in Philadelphia. Of course, that would mean the Dodgers bump someone from the rotation, or use McCarthy as a spot starter. McCarthy could also be an option out of the bullpen, but considering he is now stretched out, that seems unlikely.

    • McCarthy (finger) will make a rehab start at High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Friday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports. McCarthy is expected to throw five innings Friday night. With this latest news, it looks like the righty could be nearing his activation from the disabled list barring any setbacks. However, because he was moved to the 60-day DL, he'll have to remain out until at least Sept. 19.

    • Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy: Shifts to 60-day DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      McCarthy (finger) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday. McCarthy continues to show little improvement in his recovery from a finger issue, and after he struggled during his most recent rehab start -- allowing five earned runs on eight hits in 3.2 innings -- the Dodgers decided to place him to the 60-day DL in order to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for Charlie Culberson. The move will keep him sidelined until at least Sept. 19, and it's still unclear whether he'll be able to rejoin the big club before the regular season ends.

    • McCarthy (finger) will make another rehab start over the weekend, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. McCarthy was originally supposed to make a rehab appearance for High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday, but that was delayed because his blister reopened. He was able to throw bullpen session on Tuesday, and if all goes well in another bullpen Thursday, he'll make his next rehab start sometime over the weekend. The minor-league season is coming to a close, so if he's not ready to return to the majors after his next rehab appearance, the Dodgers will likely have to bring him back through a series of simulated games.
