Braves' McCarthy can be free agent if he continues career

ATLANTA (AP) Atlanta Braves right-hander Brandon McCarthy, who missed the second half of the season with a knee injury, can become a free agent if he chooses to continue his career.

Major League Baseball and the players union have determined the Braves have no club option for 2019 with McCarthy.

McCarthy had a clause in his contract that could have triggered a team option if he had been on the disabled list for a certain amount of time due to a specific injury.
