Padres signed RHP Trevor Cahill to a one-year, $1.75 million contract.
The 28-year-old right-hander reportedly had offers on the table from several other clubs, but chose the Padres because he believed they provided him the best chance of starting in the rotation. Pitching in the friendly confines of Petco Park is certainly a boost to his fantasy value as well. Cahill registered a 2.74 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 66/35 K/BB ratio over 65 2/3 innings with the Cubs in 2016. Jan 20 - 6:49 PM

Bob Nightengale of USA Today confirms the Padres have signed Trevor Cahill to a one-year, $1.75 million contract.

Nightengale notes that the Pirates, Blue Jays, Reds, and Rangers also made offers to Cahill, but the 28-year-old right-hander wants another shot at starting and San Diego offers the best possible path to a major league rotation spot. Cahill posted a 2.74 ERA, 1.279 WHIP, and 66/35 K/BB ratio in 65 2/3 innings (one start, 49 relief appearances) last season for the Cubs. He'll have to sort out his recent control problems to flourish with the Friars.

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres are closing in on a deal with Trevor Cahill.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports says it's a one-year deal for a similar amount that the Padres are paying Clayton Richard and Jhoulys Chacin ($1.75 million). It's probably the best possible landing spot for Cahill, who has been used in relief the last few seasons but will get a real shot to compete for a spot in the Padres' rotation. The righty also happens to be from the San Diego area. Cahill flamed out in Arizona the last time he was used as a full-time starter, but he held a 2.61 ERA and 88/40 K/BB ratio across 82 2/3 frames the last year and a half with the Cubs while still getting plenty of groundballs.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that free agent right-hander Trevor Cahill is drawing interest from six teams.

Crasnick notes that three teams view him as a starter while three others are looking at him as a reliever. The 28-year-old pitched almost exclusively out of the bullpen with the Cubs last season while putting up a 2.74 ERA and 66/35 K/BB ratio in 65 2/3 innings. He made just four starts in the majors over the past two seasons.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that Trevor Cahill is marketing himself as a starter and has received offers from three teams.

In a weak market for starting pitching, it's not a bad way for his agent to frame things. Cahill, 28, pitched almost exclusively out of the bullpen with the Cubs in 2016 while posting a 2.74 ERA and 66/35 K/BB ratio over 65 2/3 innings.

Trevor Cahill tossed five scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory over the Brewers in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Cahill, who was making his return from right patellar tendinitis, did well in his first start in the majors in nearly 16 months. The veteran right-hander limited the Brewers to just two singles and two walks while striking out three batters. He also drove in a run on a safety squeeze. He'll likely go back to the bullpen from here, but the strong performance gives the Cubs an alternative if John Lackey's shoulder stiffness lingers.

Cubs activated RHP Trevor Cahill from the 15-day disabled list.

Cahill has been sidelined since mid-July due to right patellar tendinitis, but he'll make his return as the 26th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Brewers. He's starting the first game against Matt Garza.

Trevor Cahill will start for the Cubs in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Brewers.

Cahill has been sidelined since mid-July due to right patellar tendinitis. He'll be asked to eat as many innings as possible in that start to keep the bullpen fresh and could make other spot starts down the stretch in order to keep the rest of the starters fresh as they prepare for a playoff run.

Cubs placed RHP Trevor Cahill on the 15-day disabled list with right patellar tendinitis.

It's not clear how long he might be out. Cahill has been a workhorse out of the bullpen for the Cubs this season, boasting a 3.07 ERA in 41 innings. Clayton Richard will take the vacant roster spot.

Trevor Cahill threw two scoreless innings of work in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Reds.

Cahill struck out three while allowing two hits in his spring debut. The right-hander had opportunities to sign elsewhere this winter but chose to re-sign with the Cubs in hopes of winning a spot in the starting rotation. It was with the Cubs that he revived his career last season, posting a 2.12 ERA in 11 relief appearances to close out the regular season. He's much more likely to reprise that role this season, despite Saturday's good showing.

Cubs pitching coach Chris Bosio said Saturday that Trevor Cahill turned down a two-year contract offer from the Pirates to remain with the Cubs.

The right-hander would've slotted into the Pirates rotation had he gone that route, instead he opted to remain a part of the Cubs' bullpen where he excelled down the stretch in 2015. He would have been much more interesting in fantasy leagues had he taken the Pirates offer.

Cubs signed RHP Trevor Cahill to a one-year, $4.25 million contract.

The agreement was reported last week and then finalized Monday after Cahill passed his physical. Cahill owns an ugly 5.55 ERA in 154 innings since the beginning of the 2014 season, but he pitched very well out of the Cubs' bullpen down the stretch in 2015 and they clearly feel the adjustments he made were real. The 27-year-old right-hander will compete for a rotation spot next spring, though he's far likelier to wind up in mid-to-long relief.

Trevor Cahill will be stretched out as a possible rotation candidate next spring in Cubs camp.

Cahill was re-signed to a one-year, $4.25 million deal on Monday afternoon after drawing interest from multiple clubs on the free agent market. He clearly feels comfortable on the north side of Chicago, where he registered a 2.12 ERA, 0.765 WHIP, and 22/5 K/BB ratio over 17 innings of relief in 2015. Cahill began his career as a starter and had some success in that role with both Oakland and Arizona.

Buster Olney of ESPN reports that the Cubs have re-signed free agent reliever Trevor Cahill.

It's a one-year, $4.25 million deal. Cahill breathed new life into his career this summer after joining the Cubs in mid-August, posting a 2.12 ERA, 0.765 WHIP, and 22/5 K/BB ratio in 17 innings. That's a very small sample size, but Chicago's decision-makers clearly feel the 27-year-old right-hander made real, tangible changes to his approach and delivery. He has an ugly 5.55 ERA in 154 innings overall since the beginning of the 2014 season.

Joe Stiglich of reports that free agent Trevor Cahill is close to signing with a team.

Stiglich says it won't be the A's, who just inked Ryan Madson to a three-year free agent deal. Cahill posted a rough 5.40 ERA in 43 1/3 total innings this summer, but he finished the year strong with the Cubs and now looks poised to cash in on a weak market for relief pitching. Pittsburgh was tied to the 27-year-old right-hander late last month.
