Trevor Cahill allowed three runs in five innings and was charged with a loss to the Red Sox on Wednesday.
He struggled to survive a three-run first inning but then stuck around to toss four scoreless frames after that. He surrendered five hits in the ballgame, issued one walk and fanned one batter. The big blow was a two-run bomb by J.D. Martinez. This was Cahill's first start since being activated off the disabled list with an elbow impingement, so some rust was to be expected. He falls to 1-2 with a fine 2.79 ERA in five starts. He lines up for two starts next week against the Mariners and Diamondbacks. May 16 - 11:21 PM

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

Cahill will return to the A's starting rotation on Wednesday night in Boston after missing exactly 10 days with a right elbow impingement. He has a terrific 2.25 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 31/6 K/BB ratio through 24 innings this season out of the Oakland rotation, but the Red Sox obviously present a big challenge for his first start back.
May 16 - 12:12 PM

Trevor Cahill (elbow) is expected to rejoin the Athletics' rotation Wednesday in Boston.

Manager Bob Melvin said after Cahill's bullpen session Sunday that the right-hander still wasn't 100 percent healthy, so Cahill is either feeling better than expected Monday or the team simply decided he's healthy enough. Cahill has been excellent in four starts for the A's but is a risky play coming back from an elbow injury against a tough lineup.
May 14 - 5:26 PM

Trevor Cahill (elbow) threw a bullpen session Sunday but is still "not 100 percent at this point," according to Athletics manager Bob Melvin.

Melvin said that "anything is possible" when asked whether he still expected Cahill to rejoin the rotation Wednesday when first eligible, but it doesn't seem likely that it will happen. Kendall Graveman pitched well while filling in for Cahill last Friday and should get at least one more turn.
May 13 - 3:30 PM

A's manager Bob Melvin said he expects Trevor Cahill (elbow) to return from the disabled list when first eligible.

Cahill was placed on the 10-day DL on Wednesday morning, retroactive to Sunday, because of a minor elbow impingement. The 30-year-old right-hander has registered a stellar 2.25 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 31/6 K/BB ratio over 24 innings this season for Oakland. He struck out 12 batters over six scoreless frames in his last start May 5 against the Orioles.
May 9 - 2:15 PM

Athletics placed RHP Trevor Cahill on the 10-day disabled list with a right elbow impingement.

Cahill was terrific in his last start against the Orioles, striking out 12 batters over six scoreless innings, but the 30-year-old right-hander has had durability issues for several years running. So this isn't that big of a surprise. He leaves behind a 2.25 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 31/6 K/BB ratio over 24 innings.
May 9 - 11:43 AM

Trevor Cahill allowed four hits and a walk with 12 strikeouts over six scoreless innings in a no-decision Saturday against the Orioles.

Cahill became the third Oakland pitcher in franchise history to strike out at least 12 batters in six or fewer innings. Vida Blue struck out 13 batters April 9, 1971, and Steve Karsay punched out 12 in a game April 26, 1997. It was an impressive performance considering he threw just 58 of his 98 pitches for strikes. He'll look to keep up the good work in his next scheduled appearance Friday on the road against the Yankees.
May 6 - 2:12 AM

Trevor Cahill allowed four runs -- three earned -- over six innings in a loss to the Astros on Sunday.

Cahill surrendered just four hits and a walk, striking out five, over his six innings, but the right-hander got a little unlucky to give up four runs in the process. The loss was his first of the year. Cahill has been fairly good through his first three starts, posting a 3.00 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 19/5 K/BB ratio in 18 innings of work. A softer matchup, with the strikeout-prone Orioles, is on deck for Cahill on Saturday.
Apr 29 - 6:24 PM

Trevor Cahill yielded three runs in five innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Rangers.

It wasn't quite a match for his first start last week, but Cahill kept the A's in the game while striking out six and walking two. He'll get the Astros next time out.
Apr 24 - 12:11 AM

Trevor Cahill allowed five hits with two walks and eight strikeouts over seven scoreless innings in his season debut in Tuesday's win against the White Sox.

It's the first time the A's needed their fifth starter so far this season and he was ace-like. The fresh Cahill threw 56 of his 92 pitches for strikes in the quality start, his first since July 16, 2017 when he was a member of the San Diego Padres. He is expected to make his next start Monday in Texas opposite the ice-cold Matt Moore, and he'll be in line for a two-start week.
Apr 18 - 2:02 AM

Athletics recalled RHP Trevor Cahill from Triple-A Nashville.

Cahill will join the A's rotation on Tuesday night against the White Sox. He issued seven walks in 9 2/3 innings (two starts) at Nashville and shouldn't be trusted right now in mixed fantasy leagues.
Apr 17 - 5:25 PM

Trevor Cahill is expected to start for the Athletics on Tuesday against the White Sox.

It's the first time the A's have needed a fifth starter. Cahill was great in the first half with the Padres last season before fading badly down the stretch after being traded to the Royals. Fantasy owners would be wise to take a wait-and-see approach with him.
Apr 16 - 6:53 PM

Trevor Cahill allowed two runs - one earned - and three hits with three walks and three strikeouts over four innings in a start with Triple-A Nashville on Saturday.

Cahill is expected to make one more start with Nashville on April 12 before he is summoned to serve as the big club's fifth starter on April 17 against the White Sox. He is likely to work as a swingman this season and he has minimal fantasy appeal outside of the deepest of AL-only formats.
Apr 8 - 2:25 AM

Trevor Cahill is scheduled to make starts at Triple-A Nashville on April 7 and April 12.

If those go smoothly, the 30-year-old right-hander could join the A's rotation on April 17. Cahill signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with Oakland on March 19. He posted a 4.93 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, and 87/45 K/BB ratio in 84 innings (14 starts, seven relief appearances) last season between the Padres and Royals.
Apr 2 - 7:19 PM

Athletics optioned RHP Trevor Cahill to Triple-A Nashville.

Cahill looked sharp in his two Cactus League appearances, but the A's want him to get in a little more work before they officially make him part of the 25-man roster. The 30-year-old right-hander signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with Oakland on March 19. He figures to work as a swingman this season.
