McCarthy one of several in Rangers’ mix

leave a comment »

Former Glendale resident Brandon McCarthy is one of several options to be slotted into the back end of the Texas Rangers’ starting pitching rotation for 2010, according to a report on Yahoo! Sports on Thursday.

With the top of the rotation fairly set with new acquisition Rich Harden and returners Scott Feldman and Tommy Hunter, McCarthy, who went 7-4 with a 4.62 earned-run average in 17 starts last season for Texas, is reported to be under consideration for one of the remaining two spots along with Neftali Feliz, Erik Hurley, Derek Holland and C.J. Wilson.

A recent report in the Boston Globe also linked the Rangers to free-agent starting pitcher Jon Garland.
