Trevor Cahill (shoulder) threw a successful bullpen session on Tuesday at Petco Park.

He'll throw one more bullpen session before getting into simulated action or possibly a minor league rehab game. Cahill hit the disabled list in mid-May with a right shoulder strain. He's trending toward a return to the Padres' rotation sometime in late June.
Jun 13 - 8:06 PM

Trevor Cahill (shoulder) could throw his first bullpen session early next week.

Cahill was cleared to resume throwing last Friday and he has extended his long-toss work out to 120 feet. There's still a possibility that the right-hander will be ready to return to the Padres' rotation before the end of June, but early July seems more likely. Cahill has been on the disabled list since mid-May with a shoulder strain.
Jun 10 - 3:03 PM

Trevor Cahill (shoulder) was able to play catch before Friday's game against the Rockies.

Cahill was scheduled to be re-evaluated on Friday, and apparently he checked out well enough to resume throwing. He was sent for an MRI back on May 23 after experiencing soreness in his right shoulder after playing catch from 75 feet. Assuming no further setbacks he is likely to for a minor-league rehab assignment in the next couple of weeks.
Jun 3 - 2:39 AM

An MRI taken Tuesday on Trevor Cahill's right shoulder showed no major structural damage.

Cahill was sent for the exam after experiencing lingering soreness in his right shoulder while attempting to play catch from 75 feet this weekend. He'll be shut down from throwing for the next 10-14 days and will then have to begin a rehab program from scratch. It's doubtful we see him again on a major league mound before mid-to-late June.
May 23 - 5:29 PM

Trevor Cahill is headed for an MRI after feeling continued soreness in his right shoulder while throwing from 75 feet Saturday.

Well, that's not a positive development. Cahill has been a pleasant surprise out of the Padres' rotation this season, but it's beginning to look like he could be sidelined for a while. Obviously, more will be known about his status once the exam results are in.
May 21 - 2:18 PM

Padres placed RHP Trevor Cahill on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 14, with a right shoulder strain.

There is no current timetable for his return, but one should clarify as Cahill progresses in his rehab. He had been pitching well this season prior to going down injured and held a 3.48 ERA across seven starts. With the right-hander hitting the disabled list, Jarred Cosart is a probable candidate to start in his place against the Brewers on Thursday.
May 17 - 5:10 PM

Trevor Cahill surrendered four runs -- three earned -- in six innings and took a no-decision against the White Sox on Saturday.

He gave up a home run to Avisail Garcia in the second inning, then allowed a run to score on a wild pitch in the fourth. The last two scored in the fifth on a series of hits. All told, Cahill allowed eight hits and one walk while striking out seven. He spent last year as a solid reliever for the Cubs, but moved to the Padres over the winter to get a chance as a starter. The move has paid off so far as he owns a 3-2 record with a 3.48 ERA in seven starts. He has a very nice 51/17 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 41 1/3 innings.
May 13 - 10:35 PM

Trevor Cahill pitched around five walks to shut out the Rangers for 5 1/3 innings in a victory Monday.

Cahill allowed just one hit and struck out seven. His stuff is good and he definitely looks like a legitimate starter at the moment, but the walk rate needs to come down some; he's issued 16 free passes in 35 1/3 innings.
May 9 - 1:31 AM

Sunday's game between the Dodgers and Padres has been postponed due to rain.

Yes, it rains sometimes in San Diego. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on September 2. Trevor Cahill will just be pushed back a day, while Brandon McCarthy could be skipped.
May 7 - 2:10 PM

Trevor Cahill allowed just one unearned run and three hits with no walks and seven strikeouts over six innings in a win against the Rockies on Tuesday.

Cahill threw 56 of his 89 pitches for strikes in the quality start. He has won back-to-back decisions while the Padres are 3-0 over his past three outings. The Oceanside, Calif. veteran is apparently enjoying pitching near his home, posting a 2-0 mark with a 0.69 ERA over two starts at Petco Park.
May 3 - 1:40 AM

Trevor Cahill earned his first win Friday by holding the Marlins to one run over seven innings.

Cahill did pick up a win as a spot starter for the Cubs last year, but this is his first win as a regular rotation member since Aug. 2014, when he was with the Diamondbacks. Cahill has a 21/7 K/BB ratio and a 3.44 ERA in 18 1/3 innings over his three starts. He'll probably keep walking too many to be of a lot of use in fantasy leagues, but it's nice to see him turning back into a decent starter.
Apr 22 - 1:07 AM

Trevor Cahill yielded four earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Braves.

Cahill was looking sharp until the bottom of the fifth, when he gave up a walk and two singles and uncorked a couple of wild pitches. Atlanta plated two runs in that frame and another two in the bottom of the sixth. Cahill struck out eight and allowed only four total hits, but he fell to 0-2 on the year and watched his ERA jump to 4.76. A matchup at home with the Marlins is next.
Apr 16 - 5:33 PM

Padres activated RHP Trevor Cahill from the 10-day disabled list.

It was a minimum stay on the DL for Cahill, who missed just one turn with a lower back issue. He'll start on Sunday against the Braves.
Apr 16 - 10:54 AM

Trevor Cahill (back) is on track to return on Sunday versus the Braves.

He will have missed the minimum amount of time on the disabled list with a lower back strain. Cahill pitched well against the Dodgers in his first outing of the year and isn't a bad streaming option Sunday.
