Rangers manager Ron Washington said Tuesday the injury was minor and McCarthy was being held back as a precaution. The Rangers open their spring schedule Wednesday against Kansas City.
McCarthy missed a month last year with a stress fracture in his right shoulder blade and finished 5-10 with a 4.87 ERA in 23 appearances, 22 of them starts.
