McCarthy, who turns 31 on Monday, was 3-10 with a 5.01 ERA with Arizona this season. In nine seasons with the White Sox, Rangers, A's and Diamondbacks, McCarthy is 45-60 with a 4.21 ERA.

McCarthy, informed of the trade before Sunday's game against the Braves, plans to meet the Yankees in Cleveland.

McCarthy is a graduate of Cheyenne Mountain High School in Colorado Springs.
