Brandon McCarthy returned to the mound yesterday. He done good.
After last season's big scare - getting nailed in the melon by an Erick Aybar line drive that resulted in brain surgery to alleviate a skull fracture, brain contusion and epidural hemorrhage - McCarthy returned to the hill.
He's no longer with the Athletics. He signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks during the off-season. McCarthy's final line: 2 innings of work, 3 hits, 1 run allowed and 4 strikeouts.
This also gives me an excuse to put up a pic of Brandon's wife - Hot Baseball Wife Hall of Famer, Amanda McCarthy...
