Why Brandon McCarthy’s wife is happy about trade to Yankees

A few days ago Brandon McCarthy was traded from the Arizona Diamondbacks to the New York Yankees.

McCarthy should give the Yankees a viable right handed arm for their rotation but someone else close to McCarthy has another reason to be happy about the trade. That person is his wife Amanda.

The Yankees do not allow beards, which means McCarthy will have to shave his face.

McCarthty has a 5.01 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP this season. He allowed just three runs in his last 12 2/3 innings of work moving to 3-10 in the process.
