Dodgers News: Dodgers Activate Brandon McCarthy; Option Van Slyke

Lenny Ignelzi-Associated Press

Prior to Saturdays’s game against the Kansas City Royals, the Dodgers have activated starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy.

Brandon McCarthy only missed one turn through the rotation while he was on the 10-day disabled list so he should not have any rust to brush off before his start.

He currently has a 3.25 ERA in what has been enjoying quite a successful comeback season.

Scott Van Slyke is the one taking the trip back to Oklahoma City to make room for McCarthy on the 25-man.

Van Slyke has been on a downward slope over the last few seasons and did not leave a good impression by walking in his only at-bat and then proceeding to get picked off at first base.
