Player Notes
Brandon McCarthy failed to provide the Dodgers length in Wednesday's loss to the Rays, yielding three runs on four hits over four innings.

Advice: McCarthy struck out seven and walked two on the afternoon. All three runs on his line scored in the fourth inning, with Evan Longoria burning him for a two-run homer and Luke Maile notching an RBI double. In his five starts since returning from Tommy John surgery earlier this year, McCarthy has pitched to a 2.39, 0.84 WHIP and 33/9 K/BB ratio over 26 1/3 innings. A road date with the Rockies shows next on his schedule.

Brandon McCarthy yielded two runs (one earned) in 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Friday.

Advice: It was his longest outing since returning from Tommy John surgery. McCarthy struck out four and walked three while giving up just one hit. Two runs scored on the play thanks to an error by center fielder Joc Pederson. McCarthy owns a 1.61 ERA and 26/7 K/BB ratio in 22 1/3 innings over four starts since coming off the DL and needs to be owned in most mixed fantasy leagues.

Brandon McCarthy struck out eight batters in six scoreless innings but did not earn a decision for his stellar efforts versus the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Advice: He gave up only three base hits and didn't walk anybody. This was McCarthy's third start of the season after recovering from Tommy John surgery. So far the returns have been fantastic. He has pitched very well in all three starts and sports a 1.69 ERA with 22 strikeouts and only four walks in 16 innings. This is a guy with a 4.12 ERA in over 1000 career innings, so don't overspend to acquire him for your team. That said, he should remain a quality fantasy starter until he gets hurt again.
