McCarthy stayed perfect as a Yankee, allowing one run in 5.2 innings against the Tigers Monday night.

It took McCarthy just five starts to accrue more wins in pinstripes than he had recorded with the Diamondbacks prior to last month's trade. McCarthy will put his undefeated record on the line this weekend against the Indians.

Brandon McCarthy allowed nine hits and four runs over six innings but went home with the win over the Rangers on Tuesday.

McCarthy turned in his worst start in four outings since joining the Yankees, but it was still good enough for his third win in pinstripes. McCarthy walked one while striking out three in the game. He's got a 2.55 ERA in those four starts as a member of the Yankees, and the change of scenery appears to have done him some good. McCarthy will try to keep the good times going Monday against the Tigers.

Brandon McCarthy pitched six innings and allowed just one run Thursday in a win over the Rangers.

Combining his last two starts with the Diamondbacks and his first three with the Yankees, McCarthy is 4-0 with a 1.72 ERA since June 27. He has benefited from an easy schedule during that span, though. It'll continue Monday, when he faces the Rangers again, but things will get more difficult after that.

Brandon McCarthy struck out nine batters over six innings of one-run ball in a 7-1 win over the Reds on Saturday.

Making his home debut in pinstripes, McCarthy was in control all afternoon, scattering six hits while walking none. The only run scored on a solo homer from Chris Heisey in the fifth inning. At the cost of Vidal Nuno, the 31-year-old was a solid addition to patch the injury-riddled rotation in New York, but he's a fringe option in mixed leagues now that he's calling the AL East home.

Brandon McCarthy, making his Yankees debut, allowed four runs (one earned) over 6 2/3 innings in Wednesday's 5-4, 14-inning win over the Indians.

McCarthy joined the Yankees in the trade that sent Vidal Nuno to the D'Backs on Sunday. The right-hander allowed three unearned runs in the first inning and one earned run in the fourth. Overall, he surrendered nine hits, walked one, and struck out three. Combined with his time with the D'Backs, McCarthy is 3-10 with a 4.80 ERA and a 96/21 K/BB ratio. McCarthy will face the Reds at Yankee Stadium following the All-Star break.

Yankees acquired RHP Brandon McCarthy and cash from the Diamondbacks in exchange for LHP Vidal Nuno.

The Diamondbacks will eat $2.05 million of the roughly $4.8 million remaining on McCarthy's contract, while the Yankees will pick up his $1 million assignment bonus. The tall right-hander holds a 5.01 ERA this season but sports an impressive 93/20 K/BB ratio and has seen a spike in his velocity. His ability to get grounders will help him at Yankee Stadium, though he won't have a very good defense behind him.

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that the Yankees have acquired Brandon McCarthy from the Diamondbacks in exchange for Vidal Nuno.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal and CBS Sports' Jon Heyman are also saying that the trade is done. ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the D'Backs are also sending cash to the Yankees in the deal. Although he's 3-10 with a 5.01 ERA, McCarthy has upped his velocity this season and boasts a nice 93/20 K/BB ratio. Yankee Stadium obviously isn't an ideal landing spot, but he should be an upgrade over Nuno.

Brandon McCarthy improved to 3-10, allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings as the D'Backs easily defeated the Pirates by a 10-2 margin on Thursday.

McCarthy didn't have the benefit of much run support, as the D'Backs scored seven in the ninth. They did, however, kindly take the lead in the top of the sixth. McCarthy allowed eight hits and walked two while striking out six, earning his second consecutive win. Now with a 5.01 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, and a 93/20 K/BB ratio, McCarthy will look to further improve his trade value in next week's start against the Marlins at home.

Brandon McCarthy limited the Padres to one run in seven innings Friday to improve to 2-10 on the season.

Only against the Padres. The Diamondbacks are 3-0 this year when McCarthy faces San Diego and 0-14 when he faces anyone else. Since the beginning of last year, McCarthy has a 4-1 record versus the Padres and a 3-20 record against everyone else. We don't want it to sound like we're trashing McCarthy; he certainly deserves a better record than his current mark. Still, it is fortunate that he has gotten to pitch against the Padres once a month.

Brandon McCarthy was tagged for five runs in five innings Saturday in a loss to the Giants.

McCarthy fell to 1-10 on the season. While his peripherals have generally been quite good even while he's racked up the losses, he gave up 10 hits and struck out just two in this one. A change of scenery would probably do him some good and might materialize at some point in the next few weeks.
