TREVOR CAHILL RUMORS

The Four Swingmen of the Cub-pocalypse

Yesterday, my fellow contributor Stan Croussett sketched a picture of the 2016 season in which the Cubs give a decent amount of starts to three of their swingmen: Trevor Cahill, Clayton Richard, and Adam Warren. A combination of contract incentives, comments from the front office about their prospective usage, a need to rest the workhorse […]

Your Best Against My, Uh: The Back End of the Cubs’ 2016 Rotation

Over the past month we have learned that Trevor Cahill and Adam Warren have been told–Warren explicitly and Cahill via contractual incentives–that they will be used as starting pitchers during the 2016 season. But how can this be, when the Cubs made it a priority to acquire a clear the rotation arm in John Lackey as well, […]

The Revitalization of Trevor Cahill

We had a pretty good idea of who Trevor Cahill was: owner of a career 4.13/4.27 ERA/FIP, back-end starter, ground ball pitcher. He lost his rotation spot while pitching for the Diamondbacks in 2014. During 2015, he was released by the Braves after a failed transition to the bullpen, and, after opting-out of a minor league contract with the Dodgers, there was the possibility that...

Cahill and Cubs finalize $4.25 million, 1-year contract

CHICAGO (AP) Trevor Cahill and the Chicago Cubs have finalized a $4.25 million, one-year contract, a deal that allows him to earn an additional $7.5 million million based on starts. The 27-year-old right-hander went 1-0 with a 2.12 ERA in 11 relief appearances with the Cubs last season after agreeing to a minor league deal on Aug. 18 and joining the big league club when rosters...

Gregory Polanco easily retires Trevor Cahill on a 9-3 putout

Usually when we see 9-3 putouts, a catcher or pitcher is running, the right fielder is playing shallow, and uncorks a laser beam of a throw to retire the baserunner. And on Tuesday in Pittsburgh, that’s exactly what happened when Gregory Polanco gunned out Trevor Cahill, who wasn’t even running hard to first. At least Cahill did his job for the Cubs on the mound – he struck...

Braves make modest upgrade with Trevor Cahill

On Thursday night, the Atlanta Braves acquired Trevor Cahill and a wheelbarrow full of cash from the Diamondbacks for stalled minor leaguer Josh Elander. Atlanta will only cover roughly $5.5 million of the $12 million that Cahill is owed in 2015, and will also be on the hook for the buyout of his 2016 club option (unless of course, the Braves exercise that $13 million option for...

Which Trevor Cahill Did the Braves Get?

The Braves have acquired Trevor Cahill and cash for their Josh Elander, a 24-year-old former catcher that was playing outfield in High-A Lynchburg for the second time last year. So mostly this transaction is about the Braves getting a cheap starter on the cheap. The quality of that incoming pitcher, and the fit on a […]

Cahill recalled, will start Friday vs. Cubs

Trevor Cahill was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Monday and will start for the Diamondbacks on Friday against the Cubs at Chase Field. To make room, the Diamondbacks optioned right-hander Mike Bolsinger to Reno. Cahill started the season in the starting rotation but was moved to the bullpen after four rocky starts in which he was 0-4 with a 9.17 ERA and only once lasted longer than...

Diamondbacks wait on Cahill's decision

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks have obtained option waivers on right-hander Trevor Cahill, sources said Tuesday, with the intention of sending him to  the minor leagues in a starting role.  The only thing standing in the way is Cahill's consent. Since Cahill has more than five years of major league service time, he can refuse a minor-league assignment and declare himself a free agent...

D-backs designate Cahill for assignment but hope he returns

PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks designated struggling right-hander Trevor Cahill for assignment on Monday, but general manager Kevin Towers made it plain that he would like to keep Cahill in the organization. The D-backs have 10 days to release, outright, trade or option Cahill, who is owed about $17 in million in salary and option buyouts through 2016. The D-backs will pay that money...
