McCarthy went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Giants.
McCarthy hit a go-ahead single in the 10th inning and later stole third as part of a double-steal with Christian Walker. The theft was McCarthy's fifth in his last seven games, and he's now gone 9-for-19 in his last four contests. The outfielder has shown strong contact-hitting skills in 2022, striking out at a 20.5 percent rate while batting .295.

Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Two more steals
McCarthy went 2-for-5 with two stolen bases and a run scored in Wednesday's 5-2 extra-inning win over Houston.
McCarthy, who stole his 20th and 21st bases of the season, is putting the final touches on a surprising fantasy year. He bounced between the majors and minors over the first half, but the outfielder has been productive during the second half. He's slashing .305/.372/.443 with 17 steals and 32 RBI over 58 games since the break.

McCarthy started in left field and went 2-for-4 with a double in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Padres.
McCarthy returned to the lineup after getting a breather Friday against left-hander Blake Snell and had two of Arizona's five hits.

Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Heads to bench
McCarthy will sit Friday against the Padres.
His off day comes against lefty Blake Snell, but it isn't necessarily a sign that he's now stuck in a platoon, as he'd started against each of the last eight southpaws the Diamondbacks have faced. McCarthy's been on fire lately, slashing .366/.416/.606 with four homers and eight steals in his last 18 games, but it will be Daulton Varsho who starts in right field Friday while Emmanuel Rivera handles DH duties....

Diamondbacks' Jake McCarthy: Steals another base
McCarthy went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and was caught stealing in Wednesday's 5-3 extra-inning win over the Dodgers.
McCarthy nearly ended the game in the bottom of the ninth with an attempted steal of home, but reliever Evan Phillips nailed him on a close play. It was just the second time in 20 attempts McCarthy's been caught this year. A spare piece at the start of the season, McCarthy's played his way into a regular role with an .889 OPS in the second half and appears headed for an everyday job in 2023. The outfield will be crowded next season with Corbin Carroll, Daulton Varsho and Alek Thomas in the mix, but the left-handed hitting McCarthy could become the designated hitter -- as he was Wednesday -- either every day or most days against right-handers....
