Athletics signed RHP Trevor Cahill to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.
The deal was agreed to on Saturday and then finalized Monday when Cahill arrived at A's camp in Arizona and passed his physical. The 30-year-old right-hander posted a 4.93 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, and 87/45 K/BB ratio in 84 innings (14 starts, seven relief appearances) last season with the Padres and Royals. Oakland will probably use him as a swingman between the rotation and bullpen. Mar 19 - 5:13 PM

Jane Lee of reports the Athletics and free agent Trevor Cahill have an agreement on a one-year, major league deal, pending a physical.

No word on the terms. Cahill was one of a dwindling number of free agent pitchers who had a shot at getting a major league deal after an up and down 2017 season that began with a 3.69 ERA in his first 11 starts with the Padres. The A's have a need after losing starter Jharel Cotton to Tommy John surgery. Cahill is an interesting AL-only flier.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the action on Trevor Cahill "is starting to heat up."

ESPN's Buster Olney reported earlier this week that the Giants were one club that was considering Cahill. It would be a nice landing spot for the veteran right-hander, as Cahill would get a chance to win a rotation spot and would pitch in the most pitcher-friendly park in the majors. He was excellent for the Padres in the first half last season before struggling following a trade to the Royals.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Giants are among the clubs "considering" free agent Trevor Cahill.

Olney suggests that San Francisco would likely try to use Cahill as a starter, which might appeal to the 29-year-old right-hander. He posted a 3.69 ERA over 11 starts with the Padres in 2017 before stumbling to an 8.22 ERA in three starts and seven relief appearances with the Royals. A one-year rebound deal could make sense for both Cahill and the Giants.

Royals activated RHP Trevor Cahill (shoulder) from 10-day disabled list.

Cahill had missed the last three weeks with a right shoulder impingement. He's struggled so far as a Royal, posting an 8.18 ERA in his three starts as a member of the Kansas City rotation.

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

The diagnosis might help explain his ugly start Wednesday night against the Cardinals. Cahill, acquired from the Padres on July 24, holds an 8.18 ERA over his first three outings with the Royals. He had a 3.69 ERA in 11 starts with San Diego.

Trevor Cahill was lifted after allowing three runs in 2 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Cardinals.

Cahill was looking pretty good as a starter for the Padres, but since arriving in Kansas City, he's allowed 10 runs and walked nine in 11 innings over three starts. A demotion to the bullpen is a real possibility now.

Trevor Cahill surrendered two runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings in Thursday's win over the Mariners.

Cahill was twice victimized by the solo home run in this one, coughing up solo shots to Kyle Seager and Danny Valencia in the second and fourth innings (respectively). He struck out three and walked two in the contest. Up next on the docket, a home start against the Cardinals. Cahill has allowed seven runs on 14 hits in two starts (8 2/3 innings) since being traded over from the Padres at the deadline.

Trevor Cahill allowed five runs on eight hits over four innings in his Royals debut against the Red Sox Saturday.

It surely wasn't the outing Cahill hoped for in his first start in Royal blue, with the Red Sox -- or rather, old friend Eduardo Nunez -- getting to him for a pair of homers among his eight hits allowed. Cahill also struggled in his final start as a member of the Padres, but he's been largely good this year en route to a 4.15 ERA across 12 starts. Things should start looking up for the 29-year-old as early as Thursday, when the Royals take on the Mariners.

Trevor Cahill will make his Royals debut on Saturday against the Red Sox.

Cahill was acquired from the Padres on Monday as part of a six-player deal. The resurgent 29-year-old has posted a 3.69 ERA and 72/24 K/BB ratio in 61 innings over 11 starts this season while also missing time with a shoulder injury. It's a tough first matchup, but the Royals are hoping he can be a stabilizing force for their rotation down the stretch.

Royals acquired RHPs Trevor Cahill and Brandon Maurer and LHP Ryan Buchter from the Padres in exchange for LHPs Matt Strahm and Travis Wood and INF Esteury Ruiz.

Robert Murray of FanRag Sports first reported the deal and it is now official. Cahill has experienced a big bounce-back season in 2017, posting a 3.69 ERA and 72/24 K/BB ratio over 61 innings. He'll give the Royals some more reliable innings out of the back-end of their rotation. Meanwhile, Maurer and Buchter will supplement Kansas City's relief corps.

Trevor Cahill gave up six runs -- five earned -- in 3 2/3 innings Friday versus the Giants.

The Padres are looking to trade Cahill before the deadline, so this was a very disappointing result for them. Cahill ended up walking four and throwing exactly have of his 86 pitches for strikes. He's due to face the Mets next if he's still a member of the Padres organization.

Trevor Cahill allowed one run on eight hits over 6 2/3 innings in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Cahill was hittable in this one, but the Giants were able to do next-to-nothing in terms of run-scoring output. The lone run to score on his watch came when Brandon Crawford burned him for an RBI double in the second inning. Outside of that hit, he kept the scoreboard free-and-clear of damage. The right-hander struck out eight and walked one on the afternoon. Cahill will carry a 3.14 ERA and 1.24 WHIP into a road date with these same Giants next time he takes to the mound.

Trevor Cahill is listed as the probable starter for Sunday's series finale against the Giants.

Cahill has been awful on the road and tremendous at home. It's a good thing Sunday's start comes at Petco Park. The veteran right-hander is 3-0 with a 0.49 ERA across 18 1/3 innings in three home outings with the opposition hitting just .115 against him.
Sun, Jul 16, 2017 02:25:00 AM

Trevor Cahill was touched up for six hits and four runs over five innings Sunday in the Padres’ loss to Philadelphia.

Cahill registered eight strikeouts without walking a batter. The right-hander had trouble keeping the ball in the yard, serving up homers to Nick Williams, Cameron Rupp and Freddy Galvis. Cahill didn’t have his best stuff against the Phils but he’s been surprisingly useful this year, limiting opponents to an ugly .226 average while posting an elite 11.19 K/9 over nine starts for the Padres.
