Dodgers RHP McCarthy gains unusual increase in velocity

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/21/15) Nearly every major league pitcher experiences decreased velocity with age, leading to a greater need to keep hitters off-balance and develop pinpoint control.

Then there's Brandon McCarthy.

The Dodgers right-hander had generally been a soft-tosser. It's no wonder he's averaged about six strikeouts per nine innings in his career. But after signing a four-year contract worth $48 million in the offseason, he's become a comparative fireballer. McCarthy has 25 strikeouts in 18 innings this year. Granted, it's a small sample size, but the radar gun doesn't lie.

Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal is impressed.

"It's kind of like he learned how to pitch backwards, almost," Grandal told the Orange County Register. "When guys have velocity, they rely on the velocity early in their career. And then, once they lose it, they go back and start working on movement. It's actually really good for a guy not to throw that hard when he comes up and then all of a sudden starts pumping 95 and 96. Whenever he needs movement, he can throw for movement, and whenever he needs velocity, he can reach back and throw hard."

McCarthy's average fastball was clocked at 89.4 miles an hour in 2007, per Fangraphs.com. He has it at 93.6 this year. McCarthy has cited a more intense work regimen in the offseason for the increase.

Journeyman P Brandon McCarthy may have found home with Dodgers

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/19/15) Journeyman pitcher Brandon McCarthy may have finally found a home as the right hander, who signed a $48 million contract with the Dodgers ($6 million signing bonus) during the offseason, is off to a solid start after his strong performance Sunday against the Rockies, reports the Denver Post.

McCarthy is with his sixth MLB team and seems solidified as the Dodgers' fourth starter this year.

"He was a lot better," Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki said after Sunday's game. "Take a look at his velocity when we faced him last year in Arizona. He was 90-91. Today, he was 95. He's a completely different pitcher."

Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy moves to 2-0 with six strong innings

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/19/15) Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy (2-0) scattered three hits, all singles, and did not give up a run in six innings in his win over the Rockies on Sunday.

McCarthy fanned six in the victory.

McCarthy's next start is set for Friday in San Diego.

Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy fans 10 Monday

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/14/15) Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy pitched seven innings and struck out 10 batters during Monday's win against the Mariners.

However, McCarthy allowed four home runs, which led to five earned runs and a no-decision.

His next start will likely be Sunday vs. the Rockies.

Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy strikes out nine, earns win vs. Padres

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/15) Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy picked up a win in his season debut Wednesday, allowing four earned runs on nine hits and one walk in five-plus innings while striking out nine in his team's 7-4 victory over the Padres.

McCarthy surrendered a two-run home run in the first inning and a solo home run in the top of the sixth, but he was still able to pick up a win thanks in large part to first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, who racked up three home runs in the game. The pitcher is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday against the Mariners.
