Found July 09, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Arizona Diamondbacks placed right-hander Trevor Cahill on the 15-day disabled list on July 1 with a hip contusion. He had since resumed playing catch, but when he did another issue was discovered. Manager Kirk Gibson described the shoulder setback Cahill is now facing to Tyler Emerick of MLB.com. "His shoulder didn't feel too good the last time he threw," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "I don't have a timetable, we're just trying to keep him throwing on schedule, which he wasn't really able to do his last time. I have no idea why it happened, but I know it wasn't right." Cahill was scheduled to throw again yesterday to see if the discomfort remained, but no word on the session is yet available. The 25-year-old will be limited to this sort of tossing until the pain subsides. The hip injury that sent Cahill to the DL was sustained when he was hit by a line drive on June 19. He did not consider the ailment to be a factor in his recent struggles, but the shoulder could have been playing a role. After posting an ERA of 2.84 through May, Cahill struggled to the tune of a 9.85 ERA over six June starts. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Why Is No One Talking About Patrick Corbin?

I have come to the conclusion that I am developing an unhealthy obsession with dissecting how MLB players are mechanically improving from one year to the next. First, it started with Chris Davis, then I covered Adam Wainwright, then came Marco Scutaro, and then Bartolo Colon, and next came Max Scherzer, and now Patrick Corbin is on the lab table.  But the difference with...
