Brandon McCarthy News Archive
McCarthy has a solid debut for his new team Wednesday, allowing four runs (one earned) on nine hits while walking one and striking out three over 6.2 innings, but he did not factor into the decision.
McCarthy is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Indians, the Yankees' official website reports.

McCarthy allowed just two runs and eight hits over 5.2 innings at Pittsburgh on Thursday to earn his third win of the season. He walked two and struck out six.
McCarthy credits changes to his offseason workouts -- increased upper body strength training -- and his between-starts routine for his health through the first half of the season, the Arizona Republic reports. "For a long time, there have been a lot of maxims in the game that if you're a pitcher you don't really lift upper body," McCarthy said. "I threw that out the window this year. I lifted upper body. I still lifted everything, got everything baseball strong, but I really tried to grow into a stronger upper body."
McCarthy threw an excellent game Friday facing the Padres as he pitched seven innings, giving up one run on six hits while striking out seven hitters in picking up only his second win of the season (2-10).
