Dodgers starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy
This will be the third start off Tommy John surgery for McCarthy, who said he had no feel for any pitch in his second start after hurling five scoreless innings in his first start. McCarthy signed a 4-year, $48 million contract with the Dodgers prior to 2015 but has made just 6 starts. He was 8-21 with a 4.75 ERA in 40 starts for the Diamondbacks before being traded midway through 2014 to the Yankees for Vidal Nuno. He's 12-5 in 20 starts since then, including 5-0 for the Dodgers.
