Diamondbacks pitcher Trevor Cahill was designated for assignment a few days ago and has cleared waivers. And now, he's been optioned all the way down to the High-A Visalia Rawhide, the club announced Thursday.

Cahill, 26, is 1-6 with a 5.66 ERA (66 ERA+) and 1.74 WHIP on the season. He began the season in the rotation, but after an 0-4 start with a 9.17 ERA, was demoted to the bullpen.

This season has been quite the downward spiral for Cahill. Remember, he was an All-Star and finished ninth in AL Cy Young voting in 2010 when he went 18-8 with a 2.97 ERA at age 22.

He's currently on the third year of a four-year, $30 million extension that also includes two club options. That deal was signed with the A's but never took effect until Cahill had been traded to Arizona with Craig Breslow for Jarrod Parker, Ryan Cook and Collin Cowgill.
