In 1918, McCarthy was traded to the Kansas City Blues of the American Association to complete a deal that included Fritz Mollwitz. McCarthy continued to play in the minor leagues until 1927. He served as player-manager of the Blues in 1920, and of the Springfield Senators of the Illinois–Indiana–Iowa League in 1926-27.
He attended the University of Notre Dame, but did not play baseball at the collegiate level.
