McCarthy headed for Oklahoma City

Brandon McCarthy is headed for Triple A Oklahoma City. McCarthy, who has been sidelined since June 9 with a stress fracture in his right shoulder blade, will begin a medical rehabilitation assignment on Saturday against Sacramento. He is scheduled to pitch 2-3 innings and it’s the first of at least four outings for him with the RedHawks.

“We’re certainly going to get him built up,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “We don’t want him back up here pitching on a pitch-count. We’ll go rehab start by rehab start and see where it goes.”

MacMan, just in time! I hear the Hambone Train uh com’n…

What’s the over/under on McCarthy’s starts before heading back to his home away from home, the DL? Four sounds about right to me.

I’ll go 5 to 1 that he makes it throgh the season

Too bad this guy can’t get it together…I thought he had Black Jack McDowell written all over him, but without the nasty slider.I’ll take the under on this one…3 starts in OKC max…

iwould rather have him as a Ranger in September and October than Holland, Holland against the Angels is not gonna be pretty this weekend.

i say throw mccarthy in the bullpen like he was in chicago before he came here..let him get used to just being healthy for an entire season before trying to throw this guy to the wolves..he has awesome stuff i havnt seen a curve like his in some time..i like this guy in the role that jennings has this year,,,

gotta love those tall, lanky right handers who top out at 89 regularly but 91 on occassion and is injury prone…
