We already saw one highly touted prospect pitch for the Nationals, A.J. Cole, only to surrender four runs on nine hits and one walk in two innings against the Braves last...

It was a sad Monday in baseball when word leaked that Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy had suffered a torn UCL, and required season-ending Tommy John surgery.

Dodgers face tough decisions to bolster rotation after Brandon McCarthy injury

The snarky response to the news that Brandon McCarthy would miss the rest of the 2015 season was that the Dodgers’ mega-payroll of $270 million can’t buy a fully healthy pitching staff.

Brandon McCarthy’s torn UCL means it’s Zach Lee time

Well, it was the worst-case scenario with Brandon McCarthy after he left Saturday’s game. He has a torn UCL and probably needs Tommy John surgery. That would put him out until the All-Star Break next year, and that’s even a little optimistic. And a word to the wise, Brandon: Don’t mess around with trying to rehab the injury. It doesn’t work. I know surgery of any kind is...
