Out came manager Don Mattingly and assistant trainer Yosuke Nakajima, the latter speaking briefly with McCarthy before Mattingly motioned to the bullpen for reliever Sergio Santos, who was given unlimited time to warm up.
The final pitch McCarthy threw was a 91-mph cutter. The often-injured McCarthy was signed during the offseason to a four-year, $48 million contract to replace fourth starter Dan Haren, who was traded to Miami, along with Dee Gordon and $10 million.
McCarthy leads the Major Leagues with nine home runs allowed and has a 5.87 ERA.
