This past season, McCarthy went 10-15 with a 4.05 ERA splitting time between the D-backs and the Yankees, who traded for him in July. The right-hander reached the 200-innings mark for the first time in his career and figures to be the fourth starter behind Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu.
While with Oakland in 2011 and '12, McCarthy pitched for Farhan Zaidi, now the Dodgers' general manager. He earned $10.25 million this past season.
