I also can't think of any Texas starters to get hurt since that program was instituted btw. But I didn't look it up and I don't pay that much attention to Texas.
Colby Lewis went down in July of last year and had Tommy John surgery; Neftali Feliz, in his return to the rotation ended up having Tommy John surgery in August; and Derek Holland missed a month w/shoulder fatigue. Matt Harrison is their only starter that pitched 200 innings.
As for McCarthy, I'd be okay bringing him back. His injury was horrible last year, but -- if there is a silver lining, career longevity wise -- at least it wasn't arm trouble.
