Brandon McCarthy goes 5 2/3 Friday night

Brandon McCarthy allowed eight hits, two runs (both earned), and one walk while striking out four over 5 2/3 innings Friday night against the Padres in Atlanta. He didn't factor into the decision, a 9-3 loss.

Fantasy Impact

There hasn't been a decision made, but McCarthy will likely be removed from the rotation soon, in favor of the younger pitchers, likely Mike Soroka or Luiz Gohara.

Brandon McCarthy struggles in loss Friday

Brandon McCarthy allowed five hits, four runs (all earned), and one walk while fanning four over 4 2/3 innings in Friday night's 7-3 loss to the Dodgers in Los Angeles. With the loss, his record is 5-3 on the year and he carries a 5.03 ERA.

Fantasy Impact

Just wasn't McCarthy's night, as he served up three gopher balls to his former teammates. He'll look to get back on track Wednesday against the Mets in Atlanta.

Brandon McCarthy solid over six Saturday

Brandon McCarthy allowed four hits, two runs (both earned), and no walks while striking out seven over six innings against the Nationals in Atlanta. He was not a factor in the decision, a 5-3 loss lasting 14 innings.

Fantasy Impact

McCarthy had 84 pitches through six and was doing well but fell victim to the humidity and was removed from the game. He said after the game that he is sensitive to humidity and it's likely there are many others who can relate to that. What remains to be seen is how he will react to the awful humidity the summer will bring to the Atlanta area.

Brandon McCarthy allows five runs in no-decision Monday

Brandon McCarthy allowed five runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out two over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

McCarthy continues to mix in clunkers with his quality starts, and that combined with his below-average strikeout numbers make him a volatile option in fantasy. In his last six starts, he has allowed just one run three times but allowed five, six, and eight runs in his other three starts.

Brandon McCarthy earns fifth win Tuesday

Brandon McCarthy allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out five over 5 2/3 innings to earn a win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday. The win brings his record to 5-2 on the season.

Fantasy Impact

McCarthy still sports a 4.67 ERA that is slightly inflated by two dreadful starts in early May that saw him give up 14 earned runs in 8 1/3 innings, but he has now allowed just two runs over his last 11 2/3 innings. His 1.58 WHIP is still a bit worrisome, but he will look to keep rolling when he takes on the Mets at home in his next start.
