Former Cheyenne Mtn. pitcher McCarthy agrees with D-Backs

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A person with knowledge of the negotiations says pitcher Brandon McCarthy has reached agreement with the Arizona Diamondbacks on a two-year contract.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday because McCarthy's deal was pending a physical.

The physical will be especially important for McCarthy, who was Oakland's opening day starter last season.

McCarthy was hit in the right side of the head by a line drive Sept. 5. The 29-year-old sustained an epidural hemorrhage, brain contusion and skull fracture, then underwent a two-hour surgery.

Last month, McCarthy spent two days undergoing extensive evaluations by renowned concussion expert, Dr. Michael Collins, at the University of Pittsburgh. He was cleared by Collins to begin working out and resuming his regular offseason routine.

McCarthy graduated from Cheyenne Mountain High School in Colorado Springs in 2002.
