SP,RP - SF
Trevor Cahill got the win on Wednesday when he pitched two scoreless innings of relief, issuing two hits while striking out four and walking one in the Giants 9-3 over the Mariners.
Drew Smyly started the game and was lifted in the bottom of the fourth with runners on second and third with two outs before being replaced by Caleb Barager, who made a real mess of things. Barager walked three-straight batters, allowing two runners to score, and was lifted for Cahill, who punched out Dylan Moore to end the threat. He would throw another 1 2/3 scoreless innings, enough to be credited with his first win of the season. Cahill has been solid this year but the lack of innings volume has depressed his fantasy value. He's rocking a 3.68 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and a 27:12 K/BB ratio across 22 innings (seven appearances, six starts).
Trevor Cahill took the loss on Thursday when he yielded four runs on five hits while striking out three over three innings in the Giants 6-1 loss to the Padres.
San Diego was all over Cahill in the first inning when he gave up four hits, two singles and two doubles, and three runs. Manny Machado bopped a solo shot off him in the bottom of the third inning to give him four earned runs on the evening. Cahill now owns a 4.05 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and a 23:11 K/BB ratio across just 20 innings (six starts). Pitch counts due to injury concerns have precluded the right-hander from pitching more than four innings just once all year. He gets the Mariners in his next rotation turn but doesn't have any fantasy appeal due to his innings limitations, which caps his potential quality start upside.
Trevor Cahill got the start on Saturday but pitched just 2.2 innings, allowing one run on two hits with a pair of walks and strikeouts as the Giants held on to beat the D-backs 4-3.
Cahill exited his previous start early due with a hip issue, which an MRI later revealed to be inflammation, so it appears the Giants were just being cautious in pulling him early in this one. The bullpen was able to carry the day for San Francisco. Cahill has gone just 11 innings over his previous three starts combined and is not a reliable fantasy option going forward due to his suspect workload and health. He still owns a solid 2.65 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 17 innings, which he'll take into his next start at the Padres.
Trevor Cahill, who's been dealing with left hip inflammation, is doing fine and is scheduled to start this Saturday against the D-backs,
Cahill exited his last start early with the hip issue and later received an MRI, which revealed the inflammation. The Giants had off-days on Monday and Thursday so perhaps the extra rest did the veteran right-hander some good. He'll carry a 2.51 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 18:9 K/BB ratio across 14 1/3 innings into his Saturday start.
Trevor Cahill's MRI revealed joint inflammation in his left hip.
Cahill exited Saturday's start due to a hip issue. The Giants have two days off this week, he might avoid a trip to the injured list. An update on his status should be known later in the week. Cahill owns a 2.51 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 18 strikeouts across 14 1/3 innings in 2020.
