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.

David Phelps to make return as reliever
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Yankees pitcher David Phelps will make his return to the club as a member of the bullpen, MLB.com reports Thursday.

Phelps, who is working his way back from a right elbow injury, is still in the process of beginning to throw. At this point, there is no timetable for his return to the team, but there is not enough time left in the season for him to rehab and return as a starter.

"I think at this stage, we're going day by day," Phelps said. "We'll hopefully amp it up when we get through this week. I took two weeks off, it's not like I'll be on the mound this weekend."

Masahiro Tanaka set for live BP Saturday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka will take another step forward this weekend, as he is set to face hitters in a live batting practice session Saturday, manager Joe Girardi announced.

Tanaka, who is working his way back from a partially torn UCL, will face hitters for the first time since suffering the injury. He has been working in bullpen sessions in recent weeks as part of his rehab, and the next step will likely be determined after he gets through Saturday's session.

Tanaka has been out since early July due to the injury, but remains hopeful he will be able to return to action this season.

Carlos Beltran sidelined again Thursday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran is out of the lineup for the second day in a row Thursday against the Astros, as he continues to deal with an elbow injury.

Beltran was examined Wednesday, but the results of that are not yet known. He had a cortison injection in the elbow, his third of the season, and manager Joe Girardi told reporters Thursday he expects to know if Beltran will be available moving forward by Saturday. 

The elbow began bothering him again in recent days, possibly as a result of his return to the outfield last week. He has just one hit in his last 28 at-bats.
