(8/31/14) Yankees starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy could not hold a three-run lead Sunday at Toronto, as the Blue Jays rallied for a 4-3 win. The right-hander was charged with four runs on five hits and two walks, while striking out four in six-plus innings.
McCarthy (8-14) was in control for most of the afternoon and tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings before falling apart with two outs in the sixth inning. He allowed back-to-back solo home runs to Melky Cabrera and Jose Bautista, which cut the Yankees' lead to one run.
He then gave up a solo home run to Edwin Encarnacion leading off the seventh inning and was pulled after walking Dioner Navarro with no outs. Dellin Betances relieved McCarthy, but the inherited runner scored with two outs, charging the run to McCarthy.
McCarthy has lost four of his last five starts, and he's allowed four or more earned runs in two straight starts. McCarthy had allowed a total of one home run in his previous five starts. He's expected to make his next start Saturday against the Royals.

|Brandon McCarthy hitting his stride |

(8/21/14) Brandon McCarthy has had a wild career, hasn't he? Between the minor-league accolades, the early struggles with the White Sox and Rangers, the eventual breakthrough with the Athletics, the career-threatening head injury and the disastrous stay in Arizona, nailing down just who he is has been an exercise in futility.
Which is why I don't mind just riding the wave with him.
The signs for what he's doing now where there even before joining the Yankees. He may have had a 3-10 record and 5.01 ERA in 18 starts with the Diamondbacks, but he also had a 3.82 FIP, which estimates what a pitcher's ERA really should be. And that FIP would have been even lower if not for a suspiciously high home run rate for a pitcher who induces as many ground balls as he does.
I'll admit I didn't put much stock in that argument at the time of the trade, believing McCarthy's FIP was inflated by a couple of high-strikeout games earlier in the season and that the home runs would only increase in Yankee Stadium. Instead, the strikeouts have become more frequent and the home runs less frequent.
It culminated with a complete-game shutout Thursday afternoon against the Astros, his fifth start in eight as a Yankee with seven or more strikeouts. Looks like the Athletics version of McCarthy is back.
|Brandon McCarthy resumed his baseball career in 2013 following the abrupt end to his 2012 campaign after he was struck in the head by a line drive off the bat of Erick Aybar. McCarthy moved on from Oakland to Arizona last season but his first year in the National League didn't result in a fairy tale comeback. McCarthy finished 5-11 with a 4.53 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 22 starts. McCarthy would make it two months before landing on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. It would be two months before McCarthy would return to action, and he struggled until he fixed a mechanical flaw in his delivery in late August. While most people's attention turned to Fantasy Football, McCarthy went 3-3 with a 2.94 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in his final seven starts, giving him some momentum heading into 2014. Still, McCarthy is more of a deep-league option on Draft Day.
