About Brandon McCarthy

From Wikipedia: Brandon McCarthy is a professional baseball pitcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He was born on July 7, 1983 in Glendale, California. In 2005, he made his MLB debut with the Chicago White Sox. He also played for the Texas Rangers from 2007-2009 and the Oakland Athletics from 2011-2012. As a starting pitcher for the Oakland Athletics, McCarthy suffered from a head injury after taking a line drive to the head. He subsequently underwent surgery for two hours to relieve cranial pressure after CT scans revealed he had an epidural hemorrhage, a brain contusion and a skull fracture. McCarthy went on to sign with the Arizona Diamondbacks for a two-year $15.5 million contract on December 7, 2012. In June, while on the disabled list for continued shoulder problems, McCarthy experienced a seizure related to his head injury from the year before.
