News: McCarthy allowed five hits and four earned runs over six innings against Toronto on Sunday. He struck out four and walked two. Impact: McCarthy was undone by the long ball in this one. He allowed back-to-back home runs to Melky Cabrera and Jose Bautista in the sixth inning, and then coughed one up to Edwin Encarnacion in the following frame. Aside from those mistakes, McCarthy was solid, as he threw 60 of his 90 pitches for strikes in the loss. The right-hander's next start is scheduled for Saturday at home to Kansas City.(RotoWire, )

News: McCarthy lost for the third time in four starts Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on nine hits while striking out five and walking two in 6.1 innings against the Tigers. Impact: The five earned runs were the most he's allowed as a Yankee since coming over from Arizona on July 6. Still, McCarthy has lasted six innings or more in all but one of his nine starts with New York while posting a 56:9 K:BB in that span, making him quite a valuable arm for the boys in pinstripes and a potentially sneaky acquisition in many fantasy formats.(RotoWire, )

News: McCarthy's exceptional work with the Yankees continued Thursday with his first shutout since May 18, 2013. Impact: The right-hander is now 5-2 with a 1.90 ERA in eight starts since moving to the AL.(STATS, 5:51pm)

News: McCarthy (8-12) tossed a gem Thursday against Houston, allowing just four hits while striking out eight in a complete-game shutout. Impact: Another day, another fine outing for McCarthy in a Yankees uniform. He now owns a 5-2 record and 1.90 ERA since donning pinstripes, and has been striking out nearly a batter per inning -- something he's never done in his career. McCarthy will look to keep the good times rolling against the Royals on Tuesday.(RotoWire, )
