A’s Pitcher Brandon McCarthy Jokes On Twitter Days After Scary Head-Injury Incident During Game

    In a scary incident last week, Oakland A’s starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy was hit in the head by a line-drive off the bat of Los Angeles Angels shortstop Erick Aybar. McCarthy was knocked to the ground but was able to stand and walk off the field on his own.

    Unfortunately, after being sent to a nearby hospital, McCarthy had to undergo brain surgery to relieve pressure in his head from the swelling. According to an A’s trainer, McCarthy still remains “absolutely” in a life-threatening situation due to the delicate nature of a head injury.

    However, a sign of good news has come via McCarthy’s Twitter account where the pitcher sent out his first tweet since the injury in the form of an Arrested Development quote late last night:

    Nine hours later McCarthy sent out another tweet in reference to his fantasy football team.

    While McCarthy still remains in the hospital under constant observation, this is hopefully a good sign that he is on his way to recovery after a very scary incident.
