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.
Aug 10 - 4:01 PM

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.
Aug 10 - 12:08 AM

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.
Aug 3 - 11:30 PM

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.
Jul 30 - 12:41 AM

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.
Jul 25 - 3:01 PM

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.
Jul 24 - 6:30 PM

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.
Jul 22 - 2:17 AM

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.
Jul 16 - 7:31 PM

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.
Jul 16 - 2:25 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.
Jul 9 - 7:05 PM

Trevor Cahill pitched well in his return from the disabled list but was unable to complete five innings, tossing 4 1/3 shutout frames in a 1-0 win over the Indians.

Cahill looked sharp in what was his first outing in the majors in over seven weeks, as he allowed just four hits and two walked while recording four punchouts. However, his pitch count got up to 85 following a one-out infield single and a walk in the fifth inning, and Padres manager Andy Green decided that was enough for the righty in his first start back. While it’s a bummer that he didn’t go long enough to get his fantasy owners a win, it looks to be safe to use him again in your lineup. He’ll face the Phillies on the road in his final start of the first half.
Jul 4 - 10:25 PM

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

Cahill, out since May 13 with a right shoulder strain, will make his return to the Padres' rotation Tuesday against the Indians. He's expected to be limited to 5-6 innings, so it might be worth seeing how he fares before putting him back in your fantasy lineup.
Jul 4 - 2:05 PM

Trevor Cahill (shoulder) will return Tuesday against the Indians.

Cahill didn't put up great numbers during his two-game rehab assignment (0-2, 6.75 ERA), but he seems to be over the strained shoulder that's sidelined him since mid-May. It looks like Cahill will be on a fairly strict pitch count as Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune is hearing he'll go a maximum of 5-6 innings on Tuesday.
Jul 1 - 8:52 PM

Trevor Cahill (shoulder) will make his second minor-league rehab start with Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday, manager Andy Green said.

Cahill allowed four runs - two earned - with three strikeouts in 2 2/3 innings in his first rehab assignment with Class A Lake Elsinore on June 22. It's uncertain how many rehab starts he'll need before returning to the big club, but it's reasonable to expect the team will not push him to return until after the All-Star break.
