Brandon McCarthy to retire at season's end
  • “I’m done after this,” said McCarthy, who is 6-3 with a 4.92 ERA in 15 starts this season.
  • Having been sidelined with right knee tendinitis since the end of June, McCarthy has long known his days as a starting pitcher are done.
  • The Braves could benefit from carrying McCarthy as a long-relief option once the rosters expand in September.
  • “If I go out there and just , then there is no reason to activate me because it just cost someone else a roster spot,” McCarthy said.
  • Initially, McCarthy was somewhat pessimistic about his ability to be effective after quickly making the mechanical adjustments necessary for him to overcome his knee ailment.
  • “It felt awkward at first, but now it doesn’t feel awkward,” McCarthy said.
  • McCarthy will both start working out with Gwinnett on Wednesday and then possibly begin throwing in games next week.
