Brandon McCarthyâ€™s wife Amanda shared a photo on Twitter Wednesday that shows the scar on her husbandâ€™s head following brain surgery.
McCarthy was struck in the head by a line drive from Erick Aybar last week and went to the hospital to have surgery to relieve swelling in his brain. The 28-year-old pitcher was released from the hospital on Tuesday and immediately cracked a hilarious joke on Twitter, showing he still has a great sense of humor despite the injury. McCarthy is now recovering at home, but according to Amanda, he went out on the streets of San Francisco Wednesday refusing to wear a hat. She added that nobody seemed bothered by his â€œtwo faceâ€ look, though she ended the night by saying her husband had completely shaved his head.
We here at Uncoached are just happy that Brandon is home and resting comfortably. If you haven’t seen the video, you can check it out here. It’s one of those scary moments in sports we hope we never see.
