Diamondbacks | Brandon McCarthy throws

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Brandon McCarthy (shoulder) threw from flat ground on Wednesday, June 26. McCarthy was supposed to throw a bullpen session earlier in the week but didn't because he felt fatigue in his right shoulder, according to manager Kirk Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: McCarthy threw a bullpen at the end of last week, so this isn't really progress, but at least he didn't feel soreness. If it's just a bit of a dead period following inactivity, the righty may be close to making actual progress. He's supposedly been pain-free for weeks, but if he doesn't make significant headway soon, it looks like fantasy owners won't see him until after the All-Star break.
