Brandon McCarthy’s scar after brain surgery (Picture)
Brandon McCarthy’s wife Amanda shared a photo on Twitter Wednesday that shows the scar on her husband’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 “two face” look, though she ended the night by saying her husband had completely shaved his head.
We and many others are hopeful that Brandon will make a full recovery and be back pitching for the A’s next season. And here’s to he and his wife continuing to entertain us with their tweets.
