Cubs signed RHP Trevor Cahill to a minor league contract.

Cahill opted out of his contract with the Dodgers earlier this month even though he held a 6.28 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 17/14 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings at Triple-A. He's been awful in the majors (7.52 ERA) this season, as well, and is merely a depth guy at this point.

Trevor Cahill has elected free agency.

The veteran right-hander opted out of his minor league deal with the Dodgers. In six starts at Triple-A Oklahoma City, he registered a 6.28 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 17/14 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings. He'll attempt to latch on elsewhere on a minor league pact.

Dodgers signed RHP Trevor Cahill to a minor league contract.

Cahill had an ugly 7.52 ERA in three starts and 12 relief appearances with the Braves this season. He will function as organizational depth.
Jul 2 - 4:08 PM

Braves released RHP Trevor Cahill.

Cahill was designated for assignment last week and didn't generate any interest via trade, so the Braves will cut bait with the $12 million right-hander. He'll look to latch on elsewhere on a minor league deal.

Braves designated RHP Trevor Cahill for assignment.

Cahill was tried in the rotation and bullpen in Atlanta and struggled mightily in both roles, posting a brutal 7.52 ERA and 1.78 WHIP across 26 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old right-hander will likely pass through waivers. He is making a $12 million salary this season -- $5 million of which the Braves agreed to cover in their trade with the Diamondbacks.

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said Thursday that he told Trevor Cahill his demotion to the bullpen "was not a permanent move."

Cahill was bumped to the bullpen after posting an ugly 8.03 ERA and 1.78 WHIP through three starts. He then allowed four runs over two frames in his first relief appearance, pushing his ERA to 9.42. "I told him this was not a permanent move," Gonzalez said. "A lot of things can happen, right? You think he’s going to be in the bullpen for a couple of weeks and then one of our guys sprains a toe and he’s back in the rotation. For right now, he can help us out of the bullpen." The Braves have summoned Mike Foltynewicz from Triple-A Gwinnett to occupy Cahill's rotation spot.
May 1 - 8:53 AM

Trevor Cahill allowed three runs in the first inning on his way to a four-run, six-inning outing against the Phillies in Sunday's loss.

Cahill struck out two and walked three while scattering five hits over six innings. The Braves handed Cahill a 2-0 lead in the first inning, which was immediately squandered when he served up a three-run home run to Ryan Howard. While the 27-year-old right-hander allowed just one run in his remaining five innings in the game, he still fell to 0-3 on the season. Cahill now owns an 8.03 ERA and 1.78 WHIP through three starts. Given his 5.61 ERA over 110 1/3 innings last season, it's hard to see much positive here. He'll try to right the ship against the Reds during an upcoming homestand.
Apr 26 - 4:19 PM

Trevor Cahill allowed four runs -- three earned, and all in the fifth inning -- over four-plus innings of work Tuesday in a loss to the Mets.

It was a tale of two starts for Cahill, who was terrific over the first four innings before completely falling apart in the fifth. Cahill gave up just one hit through four innings but allowed four singles and a walk -- an error mixed in didn't help -- without recording an out in the fifth. He now owns a 9.95 ERA and 3.43 WHIP through two starts. Cahill will take the hill looking for better results against the Phillies on Sunday.
Apr 21 - 9:53 PM

Trevor Cahill took the loss in his Braves debut Tuesday, allowing four runs on five hits over 2 1/3 innings against the Marlins.

Cahill also walked three, including walking in a run in the third inning that ended his night. It certainly wasn't what the Braves envisioned when they dealt for Cahill shortly before the start of the season. The right-hander will look for a little better showing Tuesday at the Mets.
Apr 14 - 10:12 PM

Braves acquired RHP Trevor Cahill and cash considerations from the Diamondbacks in exchange for OF Josh Elander.'s Steve Gilbert says the Braves are getting $6.5 million in the deal, so they'll be responsible for just under half of Cahill's $12 million salary for 2015. It's a little odd that Atlanta is taking on more salary in a rebuilding year, but if Cahill bounces back they could either trade him at the deadline or possibly pick up his $13 million option for 2016. Using a higher arm slot this spring, Cahill holds a 3.60 ERA with 10 strikeouts over 10 Cactus League frames.
Apr 2 - 9:58 PM

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Braves are "on the verge" of acquiring Trevor Cahill from the Diamondbacks.

Nightengale says Atlanta will pay about half of the $12 million Cahill is owed in 2015. The right-hander also has a $13 million club option or $300,000 buyout for 2016 and a $13.5 million club option or $500,000 buyout for 2017. Cahill held an ugly 5.61 ERA and 1.61 WHIP last season but did boast a career-high 8.5 K/9 rate. He's using a higher arm slot this spring and has posted a 3.60 ERA with 10 strikeouts over 10 frames. The addition of Cahill likely bumps Eric Stults to the Braves' bullpen and could open up a rotation spot in Arizona for Archie Bradley.
Apr 2 - 7:05 PM

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 reports that the Diamondbacks have discussed a Trevor Cahill trade with the Braves.

This comes on the heels of a report from Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic that the D-Backs "have had trade discussions" involving Cahill. The thought is that they would have to cover half of his $12 million salary for 2015 in order to move him. If Arizona was to move Cahill, it would presumably open up a spot for top prospect Archie Bradley in their starting rotation. As for Cahill, he's coming off a rough year, but his outlook would improve with a potential move to Atlanta. Stay tuned.
Apr 2 - 4:22 PM

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks "have had trade discussions" recently involving right-hander Trevor Cahill.

Cahill was awarded a spot in Arizona's rotation earlier this week, but the sudden emergence of 22-year-old prospect Archie Bradley has made the 27-year-old Cahill expendable. Piecoro suspects that the Diamondbacks would have to eat half of Cahill's $12 million salary for 2015 to swing a trade.
Apr 2 - 3:51 PM

Trevor Cahill has been awarded a spot in the Diamondbacks' starting rotation.

Josh Collmenter, Rubby De La Rosa, Jeremy Hellickson, and Chase Anderson will complete the rotation while Daniel Hudson will pitch out of the bullpen. Cahill, who is coming off a rough 2014, has allowed four runs on 13 hits and four walks over eight inning during Cactus League play. The Diamondbacks have enough options where nothing is for sure in this rotation. It promises to be a fluid situation.
