The Oakland A’s pitcher was hit in the head by a line drive last Wednesday and was taken to the hospital for examination. He had surgery to relieve swelling in his brain after a CT scan revealed a skull fracture and brain contusion.
McCarthy was released from the hospital on Tuesday, and the affable pitcher cracked an excellent joke on Twitter:
WELL IF BEING DISCHARGED FROM THE HOSPITAL ISNT THE BEST TIME TO ASK ABOUT A THREESOME THEN IM FRESH OUT OF IDEAS

McCarthy and his wife are known for exchanging zingers over Twitter, so this is nothing new, but it’s a great sign that his humor is still as strong as ever.
And he’s right, dammit, if returning home from the hospital after a brain injury isn’t the time to ask for a threesome, then when is?
