Originally written June 20, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Arizona Diamondbacks starter Trevor Cahill has been diagnosed with a hip contusion after exiting last night's game against the Miami Marlins. Cahill left the game in the second inning after being hit by a Marcell Ozuna line drive in the first. The Diamondbacks tweeted that Cahill plans to make his next start. Despite leaving today's game with a right hip contusion, Trevor Cahill expects to make his next start: http://t.co/b0CUmufWOD #Dbacks — Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) June 20, 2013 Arizona allowed the right-hander to start the second inning before pulling him after he threw a few pitches to Derek Dietrich. Steve Gilbert of MLB.com quoted Cahill as saying he believed could have remained in the game but the Diamondbacks wanted to be careful. "I thought I could get through it," Cahill said, "and they just didn't want to risk anything. It was sore, my stride was a lot shorter, but I felt like I could have made an adjustment and pitched through it." Josh Collmenter rescued the D-Backs by pitching six innings of scoreless relief. With Ian Kennedy suspended and Brandon McCarthy on the DL, Arizona will hope that Cahill is able to make that next start as he claims, but if not, it seems as though Collmenter is a capable replacement. The 27-year-old has alternated between starting and relief over the last 3 seasons: he is 13-12 as a starter in his career with a 4.03 ERA. In 2011, his rookie season, he posted a 3.38 ERA and 1.07 WHIP, garnering a few NL Rookie of the Year votes as a result. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
