Trevor Cahill

Quote:
Diamondbacks designated RHP Trevor Cahill for assignment.

Manager Kirk Gibson said earlier in the day that he was thinking of putting Cahill back in the rotation, but obviously the club has gone in another direction. Cahill is being paid $7.7 million this season, is owed $12 million next year and has a $800,000 is buyouts for club options in 2016 and 2017, so it's obviously a big decision. He'll clear waivers but should be picked up quickly by a team in need of rotation help.

Among '14, '15 and '16 buyout, the D'backs will eat more than $17M by designating Trevor Cahill for assignment. And gave up Parker and Cook.

How does Kevin Towers still have a job?

Edit: It appears he will head to minors.

Nick Piecoro ‏@nickpiecoro 31m
Kevin Towers wouldn't come out and say it, but he made it sound like Trevor Cahill has agreed to go to minors once he clears waivers.

Towers said Cahill has minor league options. He'd have to agree to be optioned. If he refuses, would become free agent. Still gets paid.

Cahill just wasn't gritty enough apparently

And nothing of value was lost. Well except the money KT burned. I don't think him rebounding is out of the question though.

Heh, I'd just fire him too. But LaRussa is the defacto GM right now anyway.

Towers is fortunate that Parker has had to go thru 2nd TJ surgery. Had Parker reached his upside he'd done I reckon. Horrible trade at the time of the trade but just hasn't come back and bite him on the ass like pretty much everyone expected it.

I hope the Phillies sign Cahill. There is no downside considering the Phillies are absolute garbage.

What happened to Cahill? His numbers still seem somewhat decent. It's not like he fell off a cliff and forgot how to pitch like Romero.

Over a K/ip, but he's walked 25 in 41.1. Add over a hit an inning and you get bad results.

I saw him with the A's mostly...when he was effective and looked like a bright future for him. From what I recall he was a bigger, husky guy. Did he have a weight problem? If so, a similar thing happened with Brett Cecil and when he lost the weight, regained his fastball and control.

One thing to consider. The Diamondbacks are NOT good in any way at helping a pitcher fix issues. See Skaggs and Kennedy.

He was overweight, but that wasn't really an issue. His good years in Oakland had a lot to do with his babip being ridiculously low. When things evened out, he became very average.

I hope the Pirates could get him and than get him back to previous form (Oakland form).
