GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Brandon McCarthy’s first few outings with the Los Angeles Dodgers were a tad rough. He had an 8.00 ERA when the Dodgers sent him down to a minor-league game last time to get his innings done and to shield him from a division opponent, the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was spring training, of course, so nobody was too worked up about it, but first impressions weren’t dazzling. But on Sunday they saw the pitcher they thought they were getting when they invested $48 million over four years back at the winter meetings.
