McCarthy missed only 15 days earlier this season with a similar shoulder issue, but it seems like he’ll be out much longer than that this time around.
“The last two weeks have been about as mentally harrowing as I have had in my career,” the 28-year-old told CSNBayArea.com’s Casey Pratt late Saturday night. “Dealing with pain every day is miserable.”
McCarthy has registered a 2.54 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 52/19 K/BB ratio across 78 innings this season for third-place Oakland. He had a 3.32 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 123/25 K/BB ratio in 170 2/3 innings last year.
The A’s called up right-hander A.J. Griffin to fill McCarthy’s rotation spot. Danny Farquhar was DFA’d.
