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.
Apr 14 - 10:22 AM

Padres placed RHP Trevor Cahill on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

It's unclear when the injury occurred. Cahill allowed three runs -- two earned -- on five hits with seven strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings against the Dodgers last Wednesday in his first start. A timetable for his return isn't known. Zach Lee has replaced Cahill on the roster and could replace him in the rotation, as well. Jarred Cosart is also an option.
Apr 9 - 3:32 PM

Trevor Cahill pitched a fine-if-unspectacular game in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers, tossing 5 2/3 innings while allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits.

Cahill struck out seven and walked three on the evening. Two runs scored on his line in the first inning. The Dodgers would not score again until the fourth, when Yasiel Puig rocked a solo home run. This spring, Cahill pitched respectably in posting a 3.26 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 21 strikeouts across 19 1/3 frames. He will make his second start of the season against the Rockies in Coors Field.
Apr 6 - 1:25 AM

Trevor Cahill will start the Padres' third regular-season game.

Luis Perdomo will start the fifth game and Jarred Cosart will open the season in the bullpen. Cahill posted a 3.26 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 21 strikeouts over 19 1/3 innings this spring in Cactus League play and might carry some value in deeper mixed leagues. At the very least, he should have streaming appeal.
Mar 30 - 2:08 PM

Trevor Cahill struck out eight batters over five innings Sunday in his Cactus League start against the Cubs.

Chicago plated a pair of (unearned) runs in the bottom of the third on a Jeimer Candelario single and a Munenori Kawasaki groundout, after Matt Szczur reached base on a fielding error by Ryan Schimpf. Cahill gave up just two total hits over his five frames, though he did walk four. The right-hander is expected to open the 2017 season in the Padres' starting rotation after posting a 2.74 ERA in one start and 49 relief appearances last year for the Cubs.
Mar 26 - 6:12 PM

Trevor Cahill struck out seven batters over five innings of one-run ball Tuesday in a sharp Cactus League start against the Giants.

Cahill gave up only one hit, a solo homer to Giants backup catcher Nick Hundley in the bottom of the second inning. The right-hander should have a spot in the Padres' rotation to open the 2017 season after registering a 2.74 ERA across one start and 49 relief appearances last year with the Cubs. There is some deep-league streaming appeal here.
Mar 21 - 7:17 PM

Trevor Cahill coughed up seven runs -- four earned -- in just 1 1/3 innings during a loss to the Royals on Thursday.

His defense didn't do him any favors but he gave up five hits and a walk while recording only four outs. He had given up only two runs in eight innings prior to today's implosion. Cahill pitched very well for the Cubs last year out of the bullpen, registering a 2.74 ERA with 66 punchouts in 65 2/3 innings. He moved to the Padres over the winter and hopes to earn a spot in the starting rotation with a strong performance in Cactus League games.
Mar 16 - 9:15 PM

Trevor Cahill yielded two runs on two hits over three innings of work in Saturday's Cactus League outing against the Brewers.

Cahill walked two and struck out one on the afternoon. While he not been utilized much as a starter over the past two seasons -- he has just four starts to his fair name in that space -- the 29-year-old right-hander is likely going to make the Padres' Opening Day rotation. The team inked him to a one-year, $1.75 million contract near the end of January.
Mar 11 - 7:14 PM

Trevor Cahill cruised through two hitless innings Wednesday in the Padres' Cactus League win over the Athletics, finishing with three strikeouts and only one walk.

Larry David would describe his outing as "pretty, pretty, pretty good." Cahill fanned Franklin Barreto, Khris Davis and Matt Chapman before calling it a day after two shutout innings. Cahill has started a mere four games over his last two seasons but is projected to open 2017 as the Padres’ fourth or fifth starter. On paper, San Diego’s rotation is the worst in baseball by a significant margin.
Mar 1 - 6:20 PM

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.
Jan 16 - 9:30 AM

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.
