Dodgers News: Brandon McCarthy Returns, Brett Eibner Optioned

The Dodgers’ mastery of the new 10-day disabled list led to a quick stint for Brandon McCarthy. He’s back and will take the mound Monday in San Francisco.

McCarthy was re-activated, and Brett Eibner was demoted to make room, per the team. Eibner was in the majors for less than a week, having just been promoted after Andrew Toles’ ACL tear.

McCarthy has been the most pleasant surprise for L.A. in 2017. He’s 3-0 with a 3.10 ERA in 29 innings. This move allowed to Dodgers to give him extra rest before Monday’s start.

Eibner has played well in his limited time on the roster. He hit his first homer over the weekend, and possesses the versatility the Dodgers staff loves.
