Oakland A’s Pitcher Brandon McCarthy Takes Line Drive Off Head [VIDEO]

We can say with full confidence that 90% of our readers were not watching today’s game between the Oakland A’s and the LA Angels. No worries, we got you guys covered. In the 4th inning, Erick Aybar hit a line drive right up the middle…until it connected directly with A’s pitcher Brandon McCarthy‘s head. McCarthy dropped like a ton of bricks and trainers immediately came to his side. Respect to McCarthy though…bro walked off on his own power.

Lucky for McCarthy this ball had just a little bit of an arc to it. Had it been a solid rope off of Aybar’s bat he might not have been walking off the field on his own. We wish McCarthy a speedy recovery and hope he’s back soon helping the A’s make their playoff push.
