Ken Rosenthal reports McCarthy to DBacks

Here is Rosenthal's Tweet

Pending McCarthy passes his physical, it looks like he is moving on. I was really hoping to be able to keep him on the roster. Despite the injuries, I was really looking forward to seeing him make his return in the green and gold.

Deal is reported to be 2 years and $15.5 million - which feels like a relatively big commitment that the A's weren't going to or wouldn't be willing to match. I wonder if a pending deal with Boras/Drew had anything to do with this or if it was really driven by McCarthy just going with the DBacks and not bringing the offer to Beane.

Good luck Brandon! What do you think? Would you have wanted Beane and Wolff to cough up that kind of money?
