D-backs gain flexibility with McCarthy
Brandon McCarthy would likely have been in line for a three- or four-year deal, the kind we expect Kyle Lohse and Anibal Sanchez get (although we haven't seen any such deal handed out to a starter so far this winter), had it not been for the comebacker that ended his 2012 season. He signed a reported two-year, $15.5 million deal today with Arizona.
