BRANDON MCCARTHY LEFT HOSPITAL AFTER SURGERY
Fri, 14 Sep 2012 02:00 PM EDT

Athletics pitcher Brandon McCarthy was released from a Bay Area hospital Tuesday, less than a week after getting hit in the head by a line drive and undergoing surgery.

And he claimed he plans to return to baseball when he regains to full strength in the coming months.

The A’s say Doctor Peter Weber, the neurologist who performed the surgery at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, and team doctor Dr. Allan Pont concluded ”McCarthy had made a good recovery and could be safely released from the hospital.”

The 29-year-old McCarthy went through 2 hours of surgery late Wednesday after a ball hit by the Angels’ Erick Aybar struck the right side of his head. He had an epidural hemorrhage, brain contusion and skull fracture on the play.

McCarthy expressed deep appreciation to everyone involved in his care, from the moment of the accident to the ambulance ride and doctors and nurses who checked on him full time at the surgery.

”From the bottom of our hearts, (my wife) Amanda and I would like to thank everybody who was involved in responding to and treating my injury,” McCarthy expounded in a statement released by the A’s. ”We could not have been in better hands.”

The A’s announced that McCarthy will remain in the Bay Area for the next 3 weeks.

By Saturday, he was back to joking on his social account – and his wife was posting regularly, too.

”I think it’s great. He’s made some big steps here in one or two days and we’re all very happy that he’s home,” manager Bob Melvin said before the A’s played Los Angeles at Angel Stadium.

”I was reflecting on when I was there at the hospital, like, ‘How did we get here?’ I mean, he comes off the mound and it seemed like we dodged one because he was feeling OK. And in the clubhouse an inning later, it was actually the same type of thing. Then the next second, he’s having brain surgery,” Melvin declared. ”So it was surreal – very surreal – the fact that he’s made fast progress as he has, and now he’s at home. It’s quite a relief to everybody here.”

McCarthy, Oakland’s opening day starter, is 8-6 with a 3.24 ERA this year in his 6th big league season and 2nd with the A’s. He went 9-9 with a 3.32 ERA last season. NFL spreads

”We also want to express our deep appreciation to our colleagues, manager and coaching staff for their concern and support during the uncertain times, and also want to thank all the A’s fans who wished us well,” McCarthy said. ”It’s times such as these when you realize you’ve an extended family, and feel so fortunate. Now we look forward to continuing the healing process, and returning to baseball and our ordinary lives in the weeks and months ahead. Go A’s!”
