Originally written July 01, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
June was an awful month for Arizona Diamondbacks starter Trevor Cahill, and July doesn't look any better. Cahill was placed on the 15-day DL with a hip contusion, with the news tweeted by the Diamondbacks' official feed on Monday afternoon. OFFICIAL: @Dbacks select RHP Chaz Roe from Triple-A Reno, place RHP Trevor Cahill on 15-day disabled list w/ right hip contusion — Arizona Diamondbacks (@Dbacks) July 1, 2013 Cahill was hit by a line drive during his June 19th start against the Miami Marlins and left in the second inning. He still made his next start, against the Washington Nationals, and remained in the rotation for the turn after that, facing the Atlanta Braves on Sunday night. However, Cahill was terrible in both, giving up six earned runs in each start and not making it into the sixth inning in either. He finished with a 9.85 ERA in June, the third-worst month by ERA in Diamondbacks history. The expectation from many is that prospect Tyler Skaggs will be called up when the Diamondbacks need a starter to fill Cahill's spot. Nick Piecoro, Diamondbacks beat writer for AZCentral Sports, tweeted that manager Kirk Gibson acknowledged the possibility of Skaggs joining the rotation. Kirk Gibson said it "could be" Tyler Skaggs to replace Trevor Cahill, who went on the DL today with a hip contusion. — Nick Piecoro (@nickpiecoro) July 1, 2013 For now, the pitcher called up to replace Cahill is Chaz Roe, a 6'5" right-hander who struggled as a starter in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League in 2010 and 2011 whilst in the Seattle Mariners organisation, moving to the bullpen during the latter season. He was outstanding in relief for the independent league Laredo Lemurs in 2012 and the Diamondbacks signed him to a minor-league contract prior to the 2013 season. He has struck out 16 batters in 11.1 relief innings in the minors this year, walking just two. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
