Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy: Headed to disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a knee injury before Monday's game, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

McCarthy lasted just three innings in a brutal no-decision last time out Sunday, in which the Rockies knocked him around for five runs on four hits. He owned a sharp 2.87 ERA heading into that start, so it's possible he tweaked the knee either before or during the start. At this point it's unclear how serious the knee injury is, but McCarthy will be eligible to return from the disabled list June 6.

Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy: Knocked around in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy allowed five runs on four hits in just three innings of a no-decision Sunday against the Rockies.

The Dodgers eventually prevailed 12-6 despite the fact the Rockies got out to an early 5-0 lead, which prevented McCarthy from taking his fourth loss of the season. He had allowed just six runs in his previous 34.1 innings, however, so there's no reason to fade the 33-year-old heading into his next start Saturday against the Padres.

Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy: Shuts out Mets for six in easy win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy (6-3) tossed six shutout innings in Tuesday's 12-0 blowout of the Mets, striking out four while allowing just four hits and a walk.

He continues to post sparkling numbers, as McCarthy's last six starts have seen him allow just six total runs in 34.1 innings -- that's a 1.57 ERA. The veteran righty's strikeout numbers remain fairly modest, but with a 2.87 ERA and 1.07 WHIP, he's putting up the best ratios of his career. McCarthy's lined up to make his next start Sunday at home against the Rockies.

Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy: Zero strikeouts in Wednesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy held the Indians to a single run on three hits and two walks over 5.1 innings Wednesday, but he didn't record a strikeout or factor into the decision.

He actually had a strikeout-free shutout going until running into trouble in the sixth, giving up two hits before getting yanked and seeing the bullpen allow an inherited runner to score. Missing bats hasn't typically been a problem for McCarthy this year, but he also won't be confused with a whiff machine. Still, the peripherals seem to indicate that the success he's had this year (3.14 ERA, 1.10 WHIP) is more or less sustainable. That'll ensure he has a home on fantasy rosters far and wide.

Dodgers' Brandon McCarthy: Hard-luck loser Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCarthy (5-3) held the Nationals to two runs on three hits over seven innings Tuesday, but he was saddled with the loss when the Dodgers fell to the Nationals 2-1.

The veteran was dealing with a blister on his throwing hand in his previous outing, so fantasy owners should be relieved to see him bounce back with no issues Tuesday. The 33-year-old has quietly put together a useful fantasy season, posting a 3.28 ERA with a 3.4 K/BB ratio, numbers close to his fantasy-relevant days in Oakland. McCarthy's normal 71.7 percent strand rate and 3.17 FIP signals that his 2017 success is no fluke, making him a must-own pitcher until his numbers prove otherwise.
