Yesterday it was reported that Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Trevor Cahill recently suffered a setback in his recovery from a right hip contusion. It wasn't his hip giving him issues, but instead Cahill was suffering from tightness in his shoulder while throwing a few days ago. The right-hander was able to play catch yesterday, and he told Steve Gilbert of MLB.com that his ailing arm felt better during the session.
"I played catch yesterday it was a lot better,"
Cahill said before Tuesday night's game. "Just kind of monitor it, make
sure it's good."
Following the setback, it remains unclear what Cahill's timeframe is. He'll continue taking things slow, and the discomfort and tightness he experienced earlier this week will have to subside before he's able to take the next step in his rehab. Manager Kirk Gibson said Cahill could throw a bullpen session sometime this week.
Prior to hitting the DL, Cahill had started 17 games for the Diamondbacks, maintaining an ERA and WHIP of 4.66 and 1.407 over 96 2/3 innings. The 25-year-old owns a career ERA and WHIP of 3.96 and 1.324 over five seasons in the majors.
