Brandon McCarthy: Takes Line Drive to Head
Update: McCarthy exited Wednesday's start against the Angels after being struck in the head in the fourth inning by an Erick Aybar liner, the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Recommendation: McCarthy immediately went to the ground before sitting up and being tended to by the team trainer. He walked off the field under his own power and was replaced by Travis Blackley. McCarthy will presumably be taken in for concussion tests, but it's possible the liner to McCarthy's head looked worse than it actually was. We'll monitor his situation going forward and label him day-to-day for the time being. McCarthy was officially charged for three runs on five hits and walk in 3.2 innings of work.
