Trevor Cahill fell to 1-8 on the season after allowing three runs over six innings against the Reds on Tuesday.
Cahill rejoined the D'Backs' rotation to begin the second half. Tuesday's outing was, at the very least, not a nightmare for the right-hander, holding the Reds to seven hits and no walks while striking out three. The control has been better, but he hasn't been missing many bats. On the season, he owns a 5.59 ERA, 1.65 WHIP, and a 53/27 K/BB ratio. He'll try to continue his improvement next Sunday at home against the Pirates. Jul 29 - 9:55 PM

Date:

Trevor Cahill surrendered seven runs -- three earned -- over four innings Wednesday in a loss to the Tigers.

It was an ugly game all around for the Diamondbacks, who lost 11-5. Cahill didn't walk a batter and struck out three, but the Detroit offense tagged him for eight hits. He's 1-7 with a 5.72 ERA and 1.71 WHIP this season.
Jul 23 - 7:00 PM

Trevor Cahill yielded three runs in five innings Friday against the Cubs in his return to the Diamondbacks rotation.

Cahill allowed four hits and two walks. Unfortunately, one of the walks and three of the hits came in the fourth, leading to a three-run inning. Still, it wasn't a disastrous outing. He'll get to make at least a couple of more starts before his status is reevaluated.
Jul 19 - 1:09 AM

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Trevor Cahill from Triple-A Reno.

Cahill was roughed up in his final start with Reno on Saturday, yielding four earned runs on five walks and five hits over just four innings. The right-hander is not a good fantasy bet for the second half of the 2014 season. He'll start Friday night at home against the Cubs.
Jul 14 - 1:33 PM

Trevor Cahill struck out six over six shutout innings in a start for Triple-A Reno Wednesday.

It was his best outing since being sent down to the minors to stretch out and hopefully rediscover his form. "His location was outstanding with all his pitches," Diamondbacks farm director Mike Bell said. "He gave up a couple hits and walks after the third, but he managed the innings by making big pitches to keep Tacoma off the board. Overall, he was very good." Cahill should get a shot in the Arizona rotation sometime after the All-Star break.
Jul 4 - 9:06 AM

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Trevor Cahill to High-A Visalia.

Cahill was removed from the Diamondbacks' 40-man roster last week via optional waivers. The 26-year-old will get a fresh start in the California League and try to work his way back up to the Arizona rotation. He had a 5.66 ERA in 41 1/3 innings this season with the D'Backs.
Jun 12 - 2:11 PM

Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona reports that the Diamondbacks have placed Trevor Cahill on optional waivers.

This means that the Diamondbacks can pass him through waivers without another team claiming him. Cahill could always turn down the minor league assignment and test free agency, but he has indicated that he's open to sticking around. He's getting the $16.9 million left on his contract no matter what.
Jun 10 - 3:26 PM

Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers indicated Monday that Trevor Cahill has agreed to go to the minor leagues once he clears waivers.

The move to designate Cahill for assignment makes a little more sense now. Cahill can technically refuse a minor league option and would still get the around $16.9 million owed to him, but it sounds like he's agreed to work out his issues in the minors. The righty has actually pitched well since being moved to the bullpen (3.04 ERA, 27 strikeouts over 23 2/3 innings), but he'd return to starting in the minors.
Jun 9 - 7:41 PM

Diamondbacks designated RHP Trevor Cahill for assignment.

Manager Kirk Gibson said earlier in the day that he was thinking of putting Cahill back in the rotation, but obviously the club has gone in another direction. They're hoping Cahill will accept an option to Triple-A Reno after he clears waivers, but the righty might just try for a fresh start in another organization. Cahill is being paid $7.7 million this season, is owed $12 million next year and has a total of $800,000 in buyouts for club options in 2016 and 2017, so it's obviously a big decision by the D'Backs.
Jun 9 - 7:01 PM

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Monday that he's exploring the idea of moving Trevor Cahill back into the rotation.

Cahill was booted from the rotation after posting a 9.17 ERA over his first four starts. He's been much better since being moved to the bullpen, putting up a 3.04 ERA while striking out 27 across 23 2/3 innings. It's not clear who would lose their rotation spot in favor of Cahill.
Jun 9 - 6:43 PM

Trevor Cahill pitched a perfect 12th inning for his first career save Friday against the Dodgers.

The Diamondbacks certainly didn't intend for Cahill's first relief appearance to be in a save situation, but they had little choice but to go to him in the 12th and he got the job done quickly, retiring Andre Ethier, Yasiel Puig and Justin Turner in order. Cahill still doesn't have any fantasy value at the moment.
Apr 19 - 2:37 AM

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson announced Monday that Trevor Cahill has been moved to the bullpen.

Gibby put Cahill on notice last week, and the sinkerballer responded by allowing seven runs -- six earned -- over four innings against the Dodgers Sunday. Cahill figures to get another shot to start if he can iron things out in the bullpen, but for now Arizona will go with Mike Bolsinger in the rotation.
Apr 14 - 6:58 PM

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

Cahill was a picture of inefficiency, as he allowed five hits, five walks and struck out eight in his four innings. The five hits against included two home runs, one by Adrian Gonzalez that was good for three runs. He's now 0-4 with a 9.17 ERA and 2.15 WHIP, and it's hard to see Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson rolling with the right-hander for much longer.
Apr 13 - 9:02 PM

Trevor Cahill was lit up for five runs on eight hits and a walk over just 3 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

Cahill did manage to strike out five, but when the Giants made contact they hit it hard. The sinkerballer has now lost each of his first three starts this season and holds a 7.90 ERA and 2.05 WHIP. He'll try to bounce back next week against the Mets in what will be a much-needed favorable matchup for Cahill.
Apr 8 - 8:08 PM

Trevor Cahill surrendered two runs over six innings of work in a 2-0 loss to the Giants on Wednesday.

He struck out three, walked three, and coughed up four hits. Believe it or not, this was solid progress after Cahill struggled through the Cactus League schedule and then was chased for five runs over four-plus innings last Sunday in Australia against the Dodgers. Until he proves it, it's going to be tough to trust him in any fantasy capacity. Cahill gets these same Giants next week, this time in San Francisco.
