Cahill didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 12-7 loss to the Rangers, giving up four runs on five hits and two walks over four innings while striking out two. Shin-Soo Choo and Joey Gallo took him deep in the third inning, but Cahill wasn't sharp from the jump, throwing only 10 first-pitch strikes to the 20 batters he faced. The right-hander will carry a 4.50 ERA and 18:4 K:BB through 22 innings into his next start Saturday, at home against the Mariners.
Cahill will make his next scheduled start Monday against the Rangers in Texas, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. As anticipated, the Angels will just push Cahill back one day in the pitching schedule rather than skipping his turn through the rotation entirely after his start Sunday in Chicago was postponed due to inclement weather. Cahill now lines up for a two-start week, with his second turn set to come Saturday versus the Mariners at home.
Cahill won't make his scheduled start Sunday after the Angels' game against the Cubs was postponed due to inclement weather in Chicago, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports. The Angels haven't clarified how the postponement will affect their pitching schedule, but it's assumed that Cahill and the team's other rotation members will simply be pushed back a day. Cahill now tentatively lines up to make his next start Monday in Texas against the Rangers followed by a turn next weekend versus the Mariners at home.
Cahill (1-1) picked up the win Monday, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk over six innings while striking out eight in a 5-2 victory over the Brewers. The veteran kept Milwaukee's hitters off balance most of the night, although Cahill did get some help from his defense -- Mike Trout made a leaping grab at the wall to rob Christian Yelich of an apparent homer in the third inning. Cahill will take a 3.50 ERA and surprising 16:2 K:BB through 18 innings into his next outing, as he looks to extend his quality start streak to three on the road Sunday against the Cubs.
Cahill didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Mariners, allowing one run on three hits over six innings while striking out five. The veteran righty looked much better in this one than he did his first start in Oakland, but the end result was the same for the Angels. Cahill threw 50 of 83 pitches for strikes and now has a solid 8:1 K:BB through his first 12 innings this season. He'll try to get into the win column Monday, at home against the Brewers.
