Cahill agreed to a contract with the Cubs on Monday, pending a physical, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports. The terms of Cahill's deal haven't been released yet, but that should continue to trickle out. After beginning his career with the Diamondbacks as a starter, he made the shift to the bullpen in 2015, and while he struggled in Atlanta, the 27-year-old posted a 2.12 ERA and 0.77 WHIP with 22 strikeouts in 17 innings with the Cubs last season, and should serve in a similar role with the club again in 2016.
Cubs pitcher Trevor Cahill picked up his first win of the season Saturday, tossing 3 1/3 shutout innings in relief of Travis Wood and allowing two hits and a walk while striking out three. The Cubs were using a bullpen day Saturday to get their rotation back in rhythm, and Cahill was in the right place to notch the win. He's been very effective in long relief since coming over to Chicago, posting a 1.54 ERA, 0.600 WHIP and 14:3 K:BB ratio in 11.2 innings, but don't expect him to have much fantasy value over the final couple of weeks.
The Cubs have recalled outfielder Quintin Berry , right-hander Trevor Cahill and left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday. The Cubs signed Berry to a minor-league deal last week after he was released by the Red Sox. He hit .225 with four home runs and 38 RBI between the Red Sox and Cubs Triple-A affiliates. Likewise, the Cubs inked Cahill to a minor-league contract on Aug. 19 after his release from the Dodgers. Cahill, a former second-round draft pick, is with his third organization this season, though he's only made 15 big-league appearances in 2015. Wada made seven starts with the Cubs earlier this season, going 1-1 with a 3.73 ERA. He suffered a shoulder injury which forced him to the disabled list. He was sent to the minor leagues after being activated from the DL.
The Cubs have reportedly signed right-hander Trevor Cahill to a minor-league contract on Wednesday. Cahill became a free agent when he opted out of his deal with the Dodgers earlier this month. Cahill started the season with the Braves and went 0-3 with a 7.52 ERA over 15 appearances (three starts) before being dealt. He did not pitch in the big-leagues with the Dodgers. The veteran right-hander will report to Triple-A Iowa.
Dodgers pitcher Trevor Cahill opted out of his minor-league contract on Friday and has instead become a free agent, the LA Times reports. The Dodgers signed Cahill in early July after he was released by the Braves. In six starts with Triple-A Oklahoma City, the 27-year-old right-hander was 1-3 with a heavy 6.28 ERA in 28 2/3 innings.
