    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Nov 15, 2012
    Pitcher Brandon McCarthy is ready for a normal offseason after being medically cleared this week to resume his regular routine, less than three months after being struck in the head by a line drive and undergoing emergency brain surgery. "Everything's good," McCarthy said by telephone Thursday. McCarthy’s contract with the A’s has expired and although he hopes to re-sign with the club, he will probably get more lucrative offers from other teams. After his surgery, he was under the care of Dr. Michael Collins, the executive director of the Sports Medicine Concussion Program at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
