Diamondbacks have agreed to a deal with 29-year old free agent right handed pitcher Brandon McCarthy pending a physical— John Gambadoro (@Gambo620) December 7, 2012
McCarthy, 29, posted a 3.24 ERA and 73/24 K/BB ratio over 111 innings with the A’s this past season, though it was cut short when a line drive off the bat of Erick Aybar struck McCarthy in the head and forced emergency brain surgery. McCarthy also has a history of shoulder problems.
Reports indicate the contract is for two years and $15.5 million dollars.
