Cahill (1-1) earned the win Wednesday with two scoreless innings versus the Mariners. He allowed two hits and a walk and struck out four.
Cahill entered the contest in relief of Caleb Baragar, who walked all three batters he faced. Cahill then ended that threat and was solid over the remainder of his relief outing. It was the 32-year-old's first relief appearance of the year, and seventh overall. He has a 3.68 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 27 strikeouts in 22 innings. Cahill could work either as a spot starter or in a multi-inning relief role during the rest of the regular season.
Cahill (0-1) was tagged with loss against the Padres on Thursday, allowing four runs on five hits with three strikeouts across three innings.
Cahill gave up back-to-back RBI doubles to Mitch Moreland and Austin Nola in the first inning, followed by a solo home run to Manny Machado in the third. The 32-year-old threw 33 of 50 pitches for strikes and did not issue any walks but was lifted after the third frame. With Jeff Samardzija (shoulder) and Drew Smyly (finger) throwing simulated games in recently, Cahill could be moved to the bullpen relatively soon. As of now, he's scheduled for a Wednesday contest at Seattle.
Cahill will start Thursday's series opener versus the Padres, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
With injured starters Jeff Samardzija (shoulder) and Drew Smyly (finger) having advanced to throwing simulated games in their respective rehabs, Cahill looked like he could be in danger of being moved to the bullpen this week, but the Giants will give the veteran right-hander at least one more turn through the rotation. Though Cahill owns an excellent 2.65 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over his five starts, San Francisco has been cautious with his usage, as he's reached the sixth inning in only one of those outings.
Cahill didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's contest between the Giants and the Diamondbacks. He allowed one run on two hits and two walks while fanning two across 2.2 innings.
Cahill had left his previous start last Saturday with joint inflammation in his left hip, but he didn't have problems in this one -- although he only tossed 42 pitches (24 strikes) before giving way to the bullpen. The veteran right-hander has a 2.65 ERA in five starts this season, but he has pitched more than four innings just once.
Cahill (hip) will start Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
He left his start last Saturday with joint inflammation in his left hip, but he is apparently over the injury and ready to step back into the rotation. Cahill has a 2.51 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in 14.1 innings this season, but he has only logged five-plus innings once in four appearances.
Cahill's MRI revealed joint inflammation in his left hip, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Cahill exited Saturday's start early as a result of his hip issue. It's unclear whether the injury will force him to miss any turns through the rotation, but the Giants have some flexibility since they have two off days before Cahill would take the mound next. If he's forced to miss additional time, Drew Smyly (finger) or Jeff Samardzija (shoulder) could potentially return from the injured list to take his place.
Giants manager Gabe Kapler said that Cahill (hip) underwent an MRI after exiting his start in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Diamondbacks, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
San Francisco has yet to receive the results of Cahill's MRI, but the right-hander looks like he could be in danger of landing on the injured list after experiencing discomfort in his left hip Saturday. If Cahill is shut down as a result of the hip issue, the Giants could remove him from the active roster and swap either Drew Smyly (finger) and Jeff Samardzija (shoulder) into the rotation. Smyly and Samardzija are currently on the IL, but both are set to face hitters Tuesday at the Giants' alternate training site and could be ready to return from the IL next weekend during the team's series versus the Diamondbacks.
Cahill exited Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks with left hip discomfort, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
The veteran right-hander allowed two runs on two hits with four strikeouts and two walks before leaving with the athletic trainer with one out in the fourth inning. The severity of the injury remains unclear, leaving Cahill's status for his next start up in the air.
Cahill was removed from Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with an apparent injury, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The 32-year-old gave up a two-run homer to Christian Walker during the fourth inning and fell behind the next batter 3-0 before exiting with the athletic trainer. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, and Cahill should be considered day-to-day until the Giants provide more information.
Cahill allowed one run on one hit and two walks over 5.1 innings Sunday, fanning eight batters in the win over Arizona. He did not factor in the decision.
Cahill was dominant Sunday, but the Giants offense couldn't take the lead until he had already left the game. He kept the Diamondbacks quiet before yielding a sacrifice fly to David Peralta in the sixth inning. Cahill will carry a terrific 1.64 ERA into Saturday's rematch in Arizona.
Cahill allowed one earned run on four hits and a walk while striking out four across four innings Tuesday against the Angels. He did not factor into the decision.
Cahill's lone earned run came on a solo home run by Tommy La Stella, the second batter of the contest. However, he settled in to retire nine of the final 10 batters he faced. Despite his relative effectiveness, Cahill was limited to 65 pitches, depriving him of the chance to earn a win. With both Drew Smyly (finger) and Jeff Samardzija (shoulder) sidelined, Cahill appears to be locked into the rotation in the short-term. He is projected to draw his next start Sunday against Arizona.
Cahill is slated to start Tuesday's road game against the Angels.
Jeff Samardzija (shoulder) and Drew Smyly (finger) remain without clear timetables to return from the injured list, so Cahill will pick up a second turn through the rotation as the Giants' No. 5 starter. In his 2020 debut last week against the Astros, Cahill walked four batters and needed 55 pitches to record outs, but he left with a no-hitter in play. He'll look to be more efficient and work deeper into Tuesday's start, though Cahill could be capped at somewhere around 70-to-80 pitches as the Giants aim to build up his arm slowly.
Cahill allowed four walks and struck out two over 1.2 scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Wednesday. He did not allow a hit.
While the veteran right-hander was inefficient in his 2020 debut, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Cahill "didn't miss by much often." The Astros just were not chasing and spoiled some decent pitches with 15 foul balls against Cahill. It will be a while yet before Cahill's built up after he missed the start of the season with a fingernail issue. He lines up for a road matchup against the Angels (one of his former teams) early next week.
Cahill's contract was purchased by the Giants ahead of his scheduled start against the Astros on Wednesday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
A fingernail issue cost Cahill the early part of the season, and he's not expected to handle a true starter's workload just yet. The Giants expect him to throw somewhere around 40 or 50 pitches. The 32-year-old has had some effective seasons throughout his 11-year big-league career, though last year wasn't one of them, as he struggled to a 5.98 ERA in 102.1 innings for the Angels.
Giants manager Gabe Kapler said Cahill would be called up from the taxi squad to start Wednesday's game in Houston, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
San Francisco will need to formally add Cahill to the 40-man roster and 28-man active roster ahead of Wednesday's contest while he slots into the rotation as a replacement for the injured Jeff Samardzija (shoulder). Cahill was slowed during summer camp by a fingernail issue, but he's been throwing without incident for a few weeks now and should be able to handle at least a four- or five-inning workload in his first start of 2020. The 32-year-old made 37 appearances (11 starts) with the Angels in 2019, posting a 5.98 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 102.1 innings.
Cahill (finger) was added to the Giants' taxi squad Sunday.
The veteran right-hander was shut down in mid-July with a fingernail issue on his right index finger, but he's now ready to rejoin the team. Cahill won't be a member of the active or 40-man roster, but he'll be able to travel with the team as a member of the taxi squad. The 32-year-old could step into the starting rotation with Jeff Samardzija (shoulder) on the injured list, though the Giants haven't announced their pitching plans.
Cahill (finger) threw a live batting practice session Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Cahill has been working his way back from a fingernail issue on his right index finger. If he feels good following his live batting practice session, the right-hander is expected to throw a simulated game late in the week. Although Drew Smyly (finger) remains sidelined, Cahill won't be ready to claim his spot in the rotation, at least not right away.
Cahill (finger) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Cahill has been dealing with a fingernail issue that kept him off the Giants' Opening Day roster, but he'll work from the mound Tuesday. A better timetable for his return could come into focus based on how he feels following his bullpen session. It's unclear what kind of role Cahill will have with the major-league pitching staff once healthy, if he has one at all.
Cahill (finger) will likely not be available for Opening Day, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Manager Gabe Kapler said both Cahill and Jarlin Garcia (undisclosed) will likely be unavailable for the Giants' opener Thursday against the Dodgers. Cahill's fingernail issue has prevented him from throwing as of late. The 32-year-old was expected to compete for a spot in the starting rotation, but Logan Webb now emerges as the leading candidate to serve as the No. 5 starter for San Francisco to begin the 2020 campaign.
Manager Gabe Kapler said Wednesday that Cahill has a fingernail injury that's preventing him from throwing, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
It's not clear when the fingernail issue first cropped up, and it likely threatens the 32-year-old's availability for Opening Day if he's unable to throw for too long. Cahill was expected to compete for a spot in the starting rotation, but Logan Webb now appears likely to serve as the No. 5 starter with the veteran's status in doubt.
