OAKLAND, Calif. – Brandon McCarthy, the A’s pitcher who was struck on the right side of his head with a batted ball during yesterday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, underwent surgery last night at a Bay Area hospital. McCarthy, 29, is alert, awake and resting comfortably, and has shown signs of improvement today.
After the incident occurred in the fourth inning yesterday, the A’s pitcher was taken to Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, where a CT Scan revealed an epidural hemorrhage, brain contusion and skull fracture. Later in the evening, he was transferred to a nearby hospital, where a neurosurgeon performed a second CT scan and clinical examination, and surgery was recommended to relieve pressure from McCarthy’s head.
