Brandon McCarthy To Start Opening Day For Oakland A’s
The Oakland A’s opening day starter will be Brandon McCarthy.
Manager Bob Melvin made the announcement on Tuesday.
“He was a natural pick after last year and with the pitchers we ended up trading away,” Melvin said of McCarthy. “He’s been focused this spring knowing he has to get ready a little earlier. He looks like he’s in midseason form.”
Last year McCarthy had a career high in wins, starts, complete games, innings pitched and strikeouts. He finished 9-9 with five complete games in 25 starts. He also had 123 strikeouts with only 25 walks in 170 2-3 innings.
