Brandon McCarthy just came off the disabled list. The A's starter was on the DL from June 24-Aug. 10 with a strained throwing shoulder. On Monday night, McCarthy took the loss in a 7-2 thrashing at the hands of the Minnesota Twins. His line wasn't good: 3 1/3 innings pitched, 10 hits, 6 runs, 1 walk and 2 Ks.
Former A's slugger Josh Willingham went 3-for-5 with 2 RBIs against McCarthy.
During the game, the A's acquired veteran shortstop in Stephen Drew from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for minor league infielder Sean Jamieson.
LHP Brett Anderson will make his season debut, tonight, against the Twins.
Anderson was activated from the Athletics 60-day disabled list after undergoing Tommy John elbow ligament replacement surgery 13 months ago.
