|Brandon McCarthy throws complete game shutout|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/18/13) Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy threw a complete game shutout against the Marlins Saturday night.
McCarthy got his first win since being struck in the head by a line drive last season. He allowed three hits, struck out five and walked two in the 1-0 victory. He has not allowed a run over his last two starts (17 innings).
McCarthy will make his next start Friday at home against San Diego. He is 0-2 with a 5.68 ERA in five starts at Chase Field.
|Monitoring Brandon McCarthy|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/16/13) Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy has been at or near the top of the most-viewed players list all day long Wednesday, as he is coming off his finest start of the season. Should Fantasy owners be this interested in him?
Before running into some bad luck with injuries, McCarthy was coming into his own in his last two seasons in Oakland, posting back to back seasons of 3.32 and 3.24 ERAs. However, his transition from a pitcher-friendly park in Oakland to one that favors hitters in Arizona has not gone smoothly, as he has a 5.63 ERA in his first eight starts of the year, including the eight shutout innings he tossed his last time out.
Fantasy owners who are interested in McCarthy are obviously hoping he can find his former levels of success. McCarthy is still posting miniscule walk rates and subpar strikeout numbers, but he has been killed by a high batting average on balls in play this season. His FIP stands at 3.74, an indication that he is pitching much better than his ERA indicates.
McCarthy makes a ton of sense as a buy-low candidate right now, even with his lack of strikeouts. If you are hovering over the add button, I would go ahead and click it. He can only go up from here.
|Brandon McCarthy let down by bullpen|
|by Adam Moore | CBSSports.com|
(5/12/13) Diamondbacks pitcher Brandon McCarthy was let down by the bullpen in Sunday's series finale against the Phillies. McCarthy limited Philadelphia to seven hits in eight shutout innings -- his longest start since Sept. 26, 2011.
He was pulled after throwing 87 pitches and watched as Philadelphia scored two runs in the ninth off reliever Heath Bell, erasing Arizona's lead and McCarthy's chances for a win.
The right-hander finished with five strikeouts and did not allow a walk in the no-decision.
McCarthy, whose last win was on Aug. 31, 2012, is slated to face the Marlins in Miami Saturday.
|Brandon McCarthy gives up tying run late|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/8/13) Diamondbacks starter Brandon McCarthy remained winless on the year in his outing against the Dodgers Tuesday night. He allowed three runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings of work.
The right-hander gave up a run in the first before surrendering a solo homer to Nick Punto the following frame. In the seventh, he walked the leadoff batter and Punto followed with an RBI double.
McCarthy was done after throwing 101 pitches, 71 for strikes, and left with the game tied at 3-3. He also struck out three and walked one in the no-decision.
His next start is scheduled for Sunday against the Phillies.
|Brandon McCarthy lowers ERA to 7.22|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/2/13) Diamondbacks starter Brandon McCarthy was able to bring down his ERA slightly on Wednesday night against the Giants. After entering the contest with a 7.48 ERA, he allowed four runs on eight hits over six innings of work, lowering that mark to 7.22.
McCarthy surrendered a homer to the first batter he faced -- Angel Pagan -- for the only damage over his first four frames. He would get tagged with a two-spot in the fifth before Hunter Pence launched a solo home run off the right-hander in the sixth.
The 29-year-old was done after throwing 91 pitches, 62 for strikes, and left in line for the win but the bullpen was unable to hold the lead. He also struck out six and walked one in the no-decision.
His next start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Dodgers. In one start against Los Angeles last season, he worked seven scoreless innings in a win.
|Brandon McCarthy's triumphant transformation into a highly effective control artist continued into the early months of the 2012 season, but owners will likely remember the difficulties he endured rather than his strong performance. McCarthy's campaign was first derailed by a seven-week disabled list stint for shoulder soreness. Then less than a month after returning, McCarthy was hit in the head by an Erick Aybar line drive that required brain surgery. McCarthy not only emerged from a life-threatening situation, but by November, he had been cleared to resume baseball activities. Now on the free agent market, McCarthy may have to contend with pitching his home games away from Oakland, and that's not a good thing for his value. Over the last two seasons, McCarthy has posted a 2.74 ERA at home and a 3.87 ERA on the road. With another club, McCarthy will still be worth drafting in standard mixed leagues, but he can be saved for the later rounds. (Updated 12/4/12)|
