Brandon McCarthy out for the year with torn UCL

Nick Johnson thinks Brandon McCarthy is injury-prone.

Dodgers pitcher Brandon McCarthy got bad news with the results of his MRI on Monday. The right-hander has a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, and is out for the season.

The club placed McCarthy on the 15-day disabled list on Monday. He is still talking though his options with doctors, but it seems unavoidable that Tommy John surgery in in McCarthy’s future.

“It certainly looks one direction and I don’t want to be one of those guys who plays the string out for a few months only to kind of waste everybody’s time, myself included,” McCarthy said. “If we need to get it done, we’ll get it done.”

The return timetable if McCarthy has surgery is 14-15 months, essentially putting him out until the 2016 All-Star break.
