The Fantasy Fix | Jul 18th, 2:34am
The biggest reason McCarthy only gets a tepid endorsement as an AL-only option as opposed to a mixed league grab is his struggles with left-handed batters in his career that stem from the lack of a changeup to keep them at bay. An ERA of just south of four is attainable with some BABIP and HR/FB normalization, and it should be tied to a WHIP under 1.30. He won't carry an AL-only staff, but he's a solid option to soak up innings and serve as a glue guy at the back end of it. - Josh Shepardson
