So much for Brian Cashman keeping the 2014 team together.
According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Brandon McCarthy has agreed to a four-year, $48 Million deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Yankees, Red Sox and Pirates were in the McCarthy sweepstakes before McCarthy set his sights on Los Angeles. McCarthy had a 2.89 ERA in 14 starts for the Yankees after being a mid season acquisition from the Arizona Diamondbacks earlier this season.
With Jon Lester off the board, it was only a matter of time before McCarthy signed with a team and it’s unfortunate the Yankees let another talent get away.
