Coming in for a struggling Eric Stults on Friday night, Trevor Cahill himself was rocked for an additional three runs in under two innings.

Fantasy Impact: His final line was 1.1 innings pitched, five hits, three runs, and a strikeout and walk. Cahill's string of scoreless appearances was snapped at four rather brutally with this outing, and he is once again off all fantasy radars.


Trevor Cahill and the rest of the Braves bullpen blanked the Rays on Tuesday night, with Cahill throwing two innings without allowing a hit or a walk, and notching one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: For the most part, Cahill has been terrible for the Braves, but has managed to piece together three consecutive appearances (four innings pitched) without allowing a run. His strikeout numbers have increased over that span (4) while his walks have decreased (1). He is still a long way from relevancy in 2015, but don't forget about him just yet.


Over two innings pitched Wednesday night, Trevor Cahill was tagged for four earned runs on six hits and a walk after relieving starter Alex Wood.

Fantasy Impact: Trevor Cahill isn't fooling anyone so far in 2015, as shown by his 15 earned runs in 14 innings pitched. He's getting hit and getting hit hard. At this point his fantasy value is close to zero, but fantasy owners will never forget the value he had in 2010.


He pitched for six innings, allowing five hits, four runs, three walks, and a homer in a dismal showing. He also recorded two strikeouts. Of the 87 pitches he threw today, only 47 were strikes. Cahill may not be long for the Braves rotation.

Fantasy Impact: There is a prospect on the Triple-A level named Matt Wisler. If and when he gets the call, pick him up if you have pitching needs. Wisler was part of a trade package from San Diego and was their top pitching prospect.

He pitched fine through four frames but absolutely fell apart in the fifth. He now has an 0-2 record to go with his 9.95 ERA.

Fantasy Impact: Watching Cahill makes one yearn to see what kind of talent is at the minor league level for the Braves. He is just not a very talented pitcher.

Cahill allowed five hits, four runs, three walks and struck out two in his short appearance. It's only one game but he has pitched horribly now for some time. In his last seven starts he has a 9.40 ERA.

Fantasy Impact: Only a few brave souls own this guy and that's a good thing if everybody wants to do well. At 27 years of age, Cahill can only hope for a better showing against his next opponent, the Mets.

The Braves acquired Trevor Cahill from the Diamondbacks and received $6.5M in the trade. That will cover a little more than half of Cahill's $12M salary. Cahill immediately joins the Braves starting rotation for 2015. (Source: David O'Brien on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cahill is a desperate gamble for Braves GM John Hart. He should only chew innings for those in deep, deep leagues. Everybody else just stand by and watch the demolition derby the Braves will be in 2015. This now opens a rotation spot in Arizona for Archie Bradley.

Cahill struggled last year with a 5.61 ERA over 110.2 innings and spent some time in the minors at the at the A+ and Triple-A level. The Braves are looking for a fifth starter and Arizona would have to cover at least half of his $12M salary for 2015. (Source: Joe Gambadoro on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: His fantasy outlook would improve somewhat if he landed on the Braves staff. Those in deeper leagues will have to watch this situation unfold as he might become a back end starter for them.
