Quick hit: Yankees Trade Nuno to Arizona for Brandon McCarthy

So this happened…

31-year-old McCarthy is 3-10 with a 5.01 ERA (3.79 FIP, 1.377 WHIP) in 18 starts in 2014. He’s given up 131 hits in 109.2 innings with 93 strikeouts and 20 walks. He has also surrendered 15 home runs.

Per Buster Olney: “McCarthy owed about $4.8 million for the rest of the season, plus he gets a $1 million assignment bonus. Arizona is eating more than $1M of that.”
