    yes

    Brandon McCarthy, RHP
    2-7, 4.84 ERA
    McCarthy is making his fourth start since coming off the disabled list. In his last outing against the Pirates, he allowed four runs in seven innings. He has struggled to command his cut fastball of late.

    McCarthy has landed on the disabled list in each of his last five seasons with a shoulder injury and his current stint is the eighth of his career.

    Last September, while pitching for the Oakland Athletics, the 30-year-old suffered a head injury from a line drive hit off the bat of Erick Aybar, requiring emergency brain surgery and requiring him to sit out for the rest of the season. McCarthy suffered a seizure related to the 2012 head injury back in early June -- an incident he said wouldn't be a setback in his injury rehabilitation.

    Still looking for his first win since coming off the disabled list at the beginning of August, Brandon McCarthy will toe the rubber for the D-backs. In his last start, the 30-year-old surrendered four runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings of work against the Pirates. Afterwards, he confessed that one pitch in particular has been limiting his ability to get hitters out.

    "Mostly my cutter hasn't come back off the DL with me," McCarthy said. "I don't know where that's gone, but it hasn't been sharp. It hasn't been the pitch that I'd like it to be, so I've had to rely on my sinker, which is OK, but if I can complement it with something else -- it's kind of been a one-pitch show for the last few starts. To be successful, I need to add some more in there."

    I'm a big fan of McCarthy...but I want to see the Reds score a dozen off of him.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Trying to think of a good McCarthy/Red(s) Scare joke here. You'll just have to make up your own.

    Broxton may be available tonight.

    http://marksheldon.mlblogs.com/2013/...snt-available/
    “He hasn’t been [available],” Baker said Wednesday. “I think he’s OK tonight but he wasn’t OK last night or the night before.”

    Baker would not disclose the issue with Broxton specifically. Broxton missed nearly two months with a strain in his elbow and returned on Aug. 7.

    “It’s similar stuff,” Baker said. “We just have to take care of him.

    “Hopefully he is available tonight. We need him tonight. Our bullpen is kind of spent.”

    Not necessarily a wish that he would play for what we currently have....but I like the all-around style of Martin Prado's play.
