According to Buster Olney of ESPN McCarthy owed about $4.8 million for the rest of the season, plus gets a $1 million dollar assignment bonus. The DBacks will eat some of his prorated contact, but the Yankees will pay the assignment bonus.
Vidal Nuno has been under the gun this year, after few bad outings in June, everyone was a calling for the Yankees to make a move. Nuno was 2-5 with a 5.42 ERA with the Yankees this year. Sounds like fans should be excited, right? Jury is still out on that, but McCarthy is certainly a veteran pitcher that probably has more innings left in the tank this year, that’s where the upgrade is. Both teams have confirmed the deal is done, so say goodbye to Nuno.
