Brandon McCarthy earns the win Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Yankees pitcher Brandon McCarthy tossed a strong start Saturday against the Royals.

McCarthy allowed two runs on six hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out four and walked one during the outing. McCarthy got off to a nice start, tossing two scoreless, hitless innings to open the game. A leadoff single wound up hurting him in the third. With a man on, McCarthy quickly managed two outs. He then gave up two straight singles, including a run-scoring knock to Alex Gordon. McCarthy would recover well, tossing three scoreless innings. He was tagged for another run in the seventh. A leadoff double advanced to third on a groundout, and managed to score on a sac fly. McCarthy was pulled from the game at that point. 

With the win, McCarthy improved to 9-14. He’ll take on the Orioles in his next start.

Late trouble sends Brandon McCarthy to 14th loss
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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 gets knocked around Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Yankees pitcher Brandon McCarthy had a tough start Tuesday against the Tigers.

McCarthy allowed five runs on nine hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out five and walked two during the outing. Detroit was able to chip away at McCarthy throughout the start. He ran into some unusual control issues in the second inning. McCarthy walked and hit a batter en route to loading the bases. He then walked in a run. Another run came across on a single the following inning. McCarthy was able to get through the next two innings without giving up a run. The Tigers led off the sixth hitting a single, double and a run-scoring single. A double-play brought in the second run of the inning. McCarthy was pulled after giving up another run-scoring single in the seventh. 

With the loss, McCarthy fell to 8-13. He’ll take on the Blue Jays in his next start.

Fantasy Analysis | 1408659085
Brandon McCarthy hitting his stride
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

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 overpowers Astros in complete-game win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Yankees pitcher Brandon McCarthy tossed another gem Thursday, as he dominated the Astros in a complete-game shutout win.

McCarthy tossed his first complete game of the season, as he mowed through the Astros on 107 pitches. He allowed just four hits -- two doubles -- in the game, while retiring eight batters on strikeouts and 11 on groundballs in the 3-0 win.

McCarthy has been lights out since joining the Yankees, posting a 5-2 record and 1.90 ERA in his eight starts. He will try to keep the good times rolling when he takes on the Tigers Tuesday.
