Brandon McCarthy returns to DL

Brandon McCarthy has been scratched from Tuesday's start and will be placed on the disabled list due to a blister injury.

Fantasy Impact

McCarthy continues to deal with issues related to blisters, and the team is hoping time off helps resolve the problem. McCarthy has been solid this season, posting an ERA and WHIP of 3.84 and 1.23. The Dodgers are eyeing rotation upgrades, including Yu Darvish, so the rotation is certainly in flux.

Brandon McCarthy gets roughed up by Braves before leaving with blister

Brandon McCarthy allowed six runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out five in Thursday's loss to the Atlanta Braves. He also left the game with a recurrence of a blister issue, and he may get some time off to let it heal.

Fantasy Impact

McCarthy was not effective on Thursday, and the blister issue could be part of the reason why. He suffered from blisters earlier in the year, as have many pitchers this season. He should be considered day-to-day for now, but monitor his status as a trip to the disabled list to let the blisters heal is not out of the question.

Brandon McCarthy receives no-decision

Brandon McCarthy allowed four runs on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings on Friday night in Miami. He also walked two and struck out three.

Fantasy Impact

McCarthy was certainly on the streaming radar Friday night in a good matchup. He will continue to be worth using in fantasy when the opportunity is right, regardless of the disappointing results in Miami.

Brandon McCarthy pitches well in return

Brandon McCarthy received a no-decision on Saturday versus the Royals, allowing two runs (one earned) over six innings of work. McCarthy also surrendered six hits and two walks while striking out just one.

Fantasy Impact

Making his first start since June 25th McCarthy certainly was worth starting in fantasy, though streamers would've liked some more strikeouts. For the season McCarthy owns a 6-3 record with a 3.12 ERA and 58 strikeouts over 78 innings.

Brandon McCarthy (knee) to start Saturday

Brandon McCarthy is scheduled to start for the Dodgers on Saturday versus the Royals. He has been on the disabled list with a knee issue.

Fantasy Impact

McCarthy missed two weeks due to tendinitis in his right knee. It usually isn't wise to start pitchers in their first game off the DL, but McCarthy is facing a Royals lineup that can be exposed by right-handers. McCarthy owns a 3.25 ERA this year.
