Brandon McCarthy (knee) placed on 10-day DL

The Dodgers placed Brandon McCarthy on the 10-day disabled list on Monday with a "knee issue," according to Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times.

Fantasy Impact

More than likely, this is simply the Dodgers' way of keeping a relatively normal rotation despite having up to seven starters at various times. Dave Roberts said he expects McCarthy to start within the next 10-12 days, so there's no reason to have concerns long term.

Brandon McCarthy struggles versus the Rockies

Brandon McCarthy received a no-decision on Sunday afternoon, allowing five runs (four earned) over just three innings of baseball. McCarthy also walked two and struck out two.

Fantasy Impact

The right-hander has been pitching well this season. Even after today's performance he still has a 3.25 ERA, which makes him a highly recommended fantasy option in his next start versus the lowly Padres.

Brandon McCarthy defeats the Mets

Brandon McCarthy threw six shutout innings on Tuesday to defeat the Mets, allowing four hits, one walk, and striking out four.

Fantasy Impact

His sixth win of the season improved his ERA to an impressive 2.87 on the year. This was a prime spot to stream McCarthy last night so fantasy players hopefully took advantage. Look for him to continue to succeed in the right matchups.

Brandon McCarthy pitches well against defending AL champs

Brandon McCarthy received a no-decision on Wednesday night in Cleveland, allowing just one run on three hits over 5 1/3 innings pitched. McCarthy walked two batters and failed to strike anyone out.

Fantasy Impact

The outing lowered his ERA to 3.14, which is impressive. McCarthy will always be somewhat of an injury risk, but he plays on a team that will give him plenty of chances for wins. Even without the strikeout potential this makes him a solid streaming option.

Brandon McCarthy falls as tough luck loser

Brandon McCarthy fell to 5-3 on the year Tuesday night, allowing two runs on three hits over seven innings while striking out four and walking two.

Fantasy Impact

It was as well as you could reasonably expect someone of McCarthy's reputation to pitch against a powerful Nationals offense. He has been dealing with some blister issues but still sports a cool 3.28 ERA in 2017. He's certainly someone that can be trusted in the right match ups.
