Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy allowed three earned runs, four hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over four innings in a loss Wednesday, July 27, against the Tampa Bay Rays.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy (calf) allowed two runs -- one earned -- on one hit in 6 1/3 innings against the St. Louis Cardinals before departing with cramping in his right calf. He walked three and struck out four.
Fantasy Tip: With better run support, McCarthy could be 4-0. As it stands, he's 2-0 with a 1.61 ERA and a 0.72 WHIP. The injury, such as it was, doesn't appear serious, and McCarthy is pitching his way onto rosters in standard fantasy leagues. If you're thin on starters, he's worth adding now.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy allowed three hits with no walks and eight strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Saturday, July 16, against the Arizona Diamondbacks in a quality start.
Fantasy Tip: McCarthy has been outstanding since making his season debut, but this was his first quality start. He is worth scooping up in all NL-only fantasy leagues and some deeper mixed formats while running hot. McCarthy has re-emerged as a solid DFS play, especially at a mid-tier price.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris, SP Brandon McCarthy and SP Kenta Maeda will start the first three games after the All-Star break against the Arizona Diamondbacks, and SP Scott Kazmir and SP Hyun-Jin Ryu will start the next two games against the Washington Nationals.
Fantasy Tip: Clayton Kershaw is expected to be back soon, but the Dodgers will make at least one turn through the rotation without their ace.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy (elbow) won his second straight start Saturday, July 9, against the San Diego Padres after a 14-month layoff due to Tommy John surgery. He allowed three earned runs, three hits and three walks with six strikeouts over five innings.
Fantasy Tip: McCarthy is 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA, but he has lasted just five innings in each start. Despite the wins, he is still only worth using in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues and as a salary saver in DFS.
