Guardians Call Up Pitcher

The Cleveland Guardians have called up Kirk McCarty to their major league roster.

McCarty appeared in his major league game earlier this season with the Guardians. Truthfully, it wasn't the best of debuts, as he allowed four earned runs on four hits in just three innings pitched. Yet, he is now getting the opportunity to make up for his rough outing with this call-up.

McCarty has been pitching marvelously down in Triple-A, so it's fair to say that he has earned this second chance. In 16.2 innings pitched in four appearances, he has a 1.08 ERA and 15 strikeouts. It will be intriguing to see how much of this strong pitching translate over to the majors. The Guardians, of course, will be ecstatic if he can replicate this form for them.
