D-Backs' Cahill feeling good despite so-so minor-league outing
by Michael Hurcomb |

Diamondbacks starting pitcher Trevor Cahill allowed four runs in 5 2/3 innings during a minor-league start Thursday, according to The Arizona Republic. Cahill, who is competing for a spot in the rotation, said he pitched better than his stat line indicated.

"I was able, for the most part, to keep the ball on the ground," he said. "I felt like I didn't make too many mistakes and the ones I did, they hit. That's going to happen."

Cahill, who has a 4.50 ERA through three spring starts, said he feels better about his command and ability to repeat his delivery than in past years.

"I think the misses are a lot better," he said. "They're competitive misses. They're not yanks in the other batter's box. Most of the misses are down, which leaves less room to get hurt."

D-Backs' Hellickson skips minor-league start due to dead arm
by Michael Hurcomb |

Diamondbacks pitching coach Mike Harkey said starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson did not make his minor-league start Thursday due to dead arm. However, Harkey expects Hellickson to be ready for the start of the season.

"He got some treatment a couple of days after his last start and in his bullpen he was a little dead," Harkey said. "It was a perfect time to do it now in March than do it in April."

Hellickson threw a bullpen session Thursday instead of making his minor-league start. He is still scheduled to pitch Saturday against the Royals.

Hellickson is 2-1 with a 5.87 ERA in three spring starts.
