LOS ANGELES —- Manager Dave Roberts said this morning that first baseman Adrián González will play a simulated game on Sunday. A rehab schedule has been planned and González will initially play with the Oklahoma City at some point next week.

“We have a schedule lined up for him, he’s going to go out on assignment, join the OKC team,” Roberts said, “I don’t know exactly what day he’s going to go out.”

“A lot of that is logistics driven, and travel and things like that, a little bit the competition,” Roberts said, “the last part of his rehab, he’ll probably, just for logistics, be with that Rancho team.”

Brandon McCarthy is throwing a bullpen on Sunday. “From that point, depending on how it goes,” Roberts said, “we’ll get him in a simulated situation, or maybe another pen, it is all contingent on tomorrow.”

Roberts said the rotation for the series next week at Atlanta is Kenta Maeda, Brock Stewart and Alex Wood. Roberts said that Stewart should be able to go to 70 pitches on his next turn, Stewart had a limit of 55 pitches in his start earlier this week.

Atlanta is catcher Kyle Farmer’s hometown and Roberts was asked if he planned to give him a start there. After initially not saying yes or no, Roberts said that he would make sure Farmer got some at-bats in Atlanta.
