Nuno, a 26-year-old left-handed starter, has a 2-5 record with a 5.42 ERA in his first full season in the Majors. He has appeared in 17 games, starting 14, and has 60 strikeouts and 26 walks in 78.0 innings pitched.
McCarthy becomes the second pitcher to be traded by the Diamondbacks in as many days. On Saturday, the team dealt reliever Joe Thatcher, as well as outfielder Tony Campana, to the Los Angeles Angels for two minor leaguers.
