Brandon McCarthy requests to start Dodgers' minor league game
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy will start a minor league game on Monday, instead of pitching in an A-squad game. 

Manager Don Mattingly said McCarthy requested the change in his pitching schedule so that he could work on pitches and have better control over when he could get up and down between innings, per MLB.com's Ken Gurnick.

Dodgers' McCarthy on Wednesday dud: 'I struggled mechanically'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy was hit hard Wednesday, giving up six earned runs on eight hits in four innings while striking out two in his team's 7-5 loss to the Cubs, but he didn't use a "dead-arm" excuse after the outing, MLB.com reports.

"Physically, everything was fine," McCarthy said. "I struggled mechanically, and my stuff didn't do what I wanted it to do."

"A lot of balls were up," manager Don Mattingly said. "When that happens, they get flat, going from side to side and not down."

The pitcher indicated that it's sometimes beneficial to fail during the spring to dispel offseason notions of Cy Young campaigns. McCarthy had allowed two earned runs in five innings in his two previous spring starts.

Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy expected to remain a Yankee
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy says he expected to remain a Yankee once free agency opened, according to the New York Daily News

"In my mind, I thought it definitely was going to be the case," he said. "At least that’s where I was saying I wanted to go. At that point, I wasn’t considering anywhere else. It was perfect. It’s the Yankees." 

McCarthy added that he hoped to re-sign with the club immediately after the season, but that didn't happen. Once the offseason shifted to December, McCarthy realized he wasn't the team's first priority. 

Though he didn't hook on in New York, McCarthy said he's pretty happy with his decision to pitch for the Dodgers. "This is very similar to the Yankees," he said. "There are so many things that fit here. They were aggressive. It would be dumb to pass this up."

McCarthy posted a 4.05 ERA over 200 innings last year.
