Good news here for the 22-27 Athletics.

According to’s Jane Lee, right-hander Brandon McCarthy will be cleared to return to the A’s rotation on Saturday against the Royals if he makes it through a bullpen session Wednesday without feeling any abnormal pain or discomfort.

McCarthy has been on the 15-day disabled list since May 18 with a strained right (throwing) shoulder.

The 28-year-old has posted a stellar 2.95 ERA and 40/16 K/BB ratio in 58 innings (nine starts) this season.
