Cahill signed a minor-league with the Giants that includes an invitation to big-league camp Tuesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Cahill joined the Angels on a one-year, $9 million deal for last season, but he didn't find much success with a 5.98 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 81:39 K:BB in 37 appearances (11 starts). the veteran right-hander provides some potential starting depth and could also work in long relief with a strong showing in spring training.
Cahill (3-9) allowed a run on two hits and one walk while striking out a pair over two innings to take the loss against the Red Sox on Friday.
Cahill entered the contest in the 14th inning, and Mookie Betts took him deep for a solo shot in the 15th. Across 12.1 innings in August, Cahill owns an 8.03 ERA and 1.86 WHIP, having maintained a scoreless line only twice in seven appearances. For the year, he's posted a 6.41 ERA and 1.48 WHIP with 71 strikeouts over 91.1 innings.
Cahill pitched 1.1 scoreless innings Friday, allowing a hit and walk in a 7-2 loss to the White Sox.
Cahill entered the game with the Angels already trailing 7-2 and managed to prevent the damage from getting any worse. He's struggled with that in August, having allowed 12 runs (nine earned) over four appearances spanning eight innings this month. The right-hander has a 5.22 ERA in 29.1 innings since transitioning to the bullpen in late June.
Cahill (3-6) scooped up the win in Tuesday's 9-4 triumph over the Rangers after allowing one run in two innings of relief. He scattered one hit and one walk in the 33-pitch outing and didn't record a strikeout.
After starter Jose Suarez ran up his pitch count to 91 through four innings, Cahill was summoned in long relief and was able to limit the damage while the Angels provided him ample run support. The win was Cahill's first since May 10, when he was still a full-time member of the rotation. The Angels will have the uncomfortable task of filling Tyler Skaggs' spot in the rotation Saturday in Houston, and Cahill should find himself among the organization's short list of options. JC Ramirez (elbow) is another candidate to enter the starting ranks if the Angels elect to bring him back from the 60-day injured list this weekend.
Cahill (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
According to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register, Cahill will initially pitch out of the bullpen, with Jaime Barria starting Wednesday's game against the Reds. Prior to landing on the shelf earlier in June, Cahill struggled to a 7.18 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 46:20 K:BB in 57.2 innings.
Cahill (elbow) will be activated off the 10-day injured list Wednesday, but it's unclear whether he'll be used as a starter or reliever, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The Angels have yet to name a starter for Wednesday and manager Brad Ausmus didn't specify how Cahill will be utilized upon his activation. The 31-year-old has a 7.18 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 46:20 K:BB over 11 starts this season, and the team has recently discussed moving him to the bullpen. Regardless, Cahill isn't a desirable option for fantasy purposes.
The Angels have discussed transitioning Cahill (elbow) to a relief role once he's reinstated from the 10-day injured list, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
The right-hander has been sidelined since June 3 with elbow inflammation, but looks to be on the cusp of a return after kicking off a minor-league rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Salt Lake. He was lit up for seven runs in just 2.1 innings in that contest, which was reminiscent of many of his ill-fated appearances as a starter in the big leagues this season. Over 12 outings (11 starts) with the Angels prior to getting shut down with elbow inflammation, Cahill submitted a 7.18 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 57.2 innings. He'll likely make at least one more appearance in the minors before the Angels decide on how to deploy him once he's back from the 10-day injured list.
Cahill (elbow) will make a rehab start Friday with Triple-A Salt Lake, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Cahill is already eligible to return from a sore right elbow, though he'll make at least one rehab appearance before joining the Angels despite his brief absence. He's scheduled to throw around 75 pitches, and it sounds like he could be activated after just one outing if everything goes off without a hitch. However, the team may have tempered expectations regarding his return due to his poor 7.18 ERA through 57.2 innings.
Cahill (elbow) tossed another bullpen session Tuesday but isn't on track to rejoin the Angels' rotation for this weekend's three-game series in St. Louis, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The Angels list Griffin Canning, Felix Pena and Tyler Skaggs as their probable starters for the weekend, so if the team does elect to bring Cahill back from the 10-day injured list in the next few days, he'll be relegated to a bullpen role. Cahill has reported no renewed discomfort since landing on the IL with right elbow inflammation June 9, so the Angels may be deliberately taking things slowly with a veteran pitcher whose rotation spot was on thin ice prior to getting shut down. Rookie Jose Suarez has been filling as the Angels' fifth starter and has thus far outperformed Cahill, who owns a 7.16 ERA and 1.40 WHIP over 57.2 innings this season.
Cahill (elbow) threw off flat ground Friday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Cahill landed on the 10-day injured list June 8 due to right elbow soreness, but it's good to see that he's throwing without issue. The Angels are optimistic that Cahill will only miss one start, which would put him in line to return Thursday against the Blue Jays.
Cahill was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a sore right elbow, Maria Torres of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Cahill has struggled in his last two outings with 11 runs allowed across 8.2 innings, but it's unclear how long the elbow has been bothering him. Manager Brad Ausmus indicated it's a minor issue that is only expected to cost the 31-year-old one start. Jose Suarez will start in his place against the Mariners on Sunday.
Cahill (2-6) gave up five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three through 4.1 innings to take the loss against the Cubs on Monday.
Serving as the primary pitcher behind an opener, Cahill held the Cubs to one run until he allowed four baserunners and four runs in the sixth inning that ended his outing. The right-hander has given up at least five runs in four of his last six appearances. He has a 2-6 record with a 7.18 ERA through 12 appearances this season. Cahill is currently scheduled to pitch again Saturday against the Mariners, though it's not clear if he'll be starting or used in relief of an opener.
Cahill will follow an opener in Monday's contest against the Cubs.
Cahill has surrendered six earned runs in three of his last five starts and will face a strong Cubs lineup Monday. He's been notably worse going through opposing lineups multiple times this season, seeing his ERA rise from 4.01 his first time through an order to 8.71 and 11.25 respectively in subsequent turns. Overall, he has a 6.92 ERA and 1.37 WHIP across 53.1 innings.
Cahill's next outing has been moved to Monday against the Cubs, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Cahill had been slated to toe the rubber Sunday against Seattle, but the Angels have decided to move his outing to Monday. He lines up for two starts next week following this update in the pitching schedule.
Cahill (2-5) allowed six runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over 4.1 innings Monday in a loss to the Athletics.
Cahill tossed two scoreless innings to begin his outing, but he gave up a run in the third, followed by two more in the fourth and three in the fifth, resulting in a three-run deficit for his club. The 31-year-old has struggled to find consistency through the first two months of the season, and he has a 6.92 ERA and 1.37 WHIP with 43 punchouts across 53.1 innings to show for it. Cahill will search for a better showing in his next start, which is likely to come Saturday in Seattle.
Cahill has been confirmed as Monday's starter against Oakland.
As expected, Cahill will toe the rubber for the Angels' series opener. Tuesday's starter has yet to be determined.
Cahill is expected to start Monday's game against the Athletics, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Cahill was on track to make his next scheduled start Tuesday, but after the Angels were forced to use Felix Pena (their anticipated primary pitcher for Monday) in Sunday's series finale, Los Angeles figures to turn to Cahill, who would be on normal rest.
Cahill gave up one run on two hits in five innings against the Twins on Tuesday but did not factor into the decision. He walked two batters and struck out five.
Cahill was clinging to a 3-0 lead when he was pulled in the sixth inning after giving up a leadoff double, then watched the Angels' bullpen implode by allowing eight runs to score after his departure. Nonetheless, it was a promising outing for Cahill after he gave up six earned runs in 4.1 innings versus this same Twins team his last time out. His outing Tuesday was also the first time since his second start that he did not allow a home run. He'll carry a disappointing 6.43 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into his next start in Oakland on Monday.
Cahill (2-4) allowed six runs on six hits with one strikeout and two walks across 4.1 innings while taking a loss against the Twins on Wednesday.
For the sixth straight start, Cahill yielded a home run. That's been his biggest issue this season, but opposing hitters are also batting .267 against him, and he has experienced trouble recording a strikeout when he needs it. The 31-year-old is 2-4 with a 6.95 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 33 strikeouts in 44 innings during 2019. His next start will be Tuesday against the Twins again.
Cahill (2-3) allowed two runs on four hits with five strikeouts and no walks across six innings to earn a victory against the Orioles on Friday.
The 31-year-old only threw 78 pitches, but it's still hard to complain about this outing. With this performance, Cahill snapped a streak of allowing at least four runs in each of his last four starts. It was also the first time since April 2 that Cahill yielded fewer than five hits in an outing. The real key, though, is the long ball. Cahill allowed only one bomb Friday night, which has been a problem for him most of the year. He is 2-3 with a 6.35 ERA despite only a 1.34 WHIP because he's yielded 13 homers. Cahill also has 32 strikeouts in 39.2 innings. He is scheduled to make his next start against the Twins on Wednesday.
