Trevor Cahill signs with Cubs after opting out of deal with Dodgers


Right-hander Trevor Cahill, who opted out of a minor-league deal with the Dodgers last week to become a free agent, has agreed to another minor-league deal with the Cubs.

Cahill is now on his fourth team this year–he was also traded by the Diamondbacks and released by the Braves–and hasn’t had success in the majors since 2013. He also struggled at Triple-A for the Dodgers, posting a 6.28 ERA and 17/14 K/BB ratio in 29 innings.

He’s still just 27 years old and the former All-Star is still getting paid by the Diamondbacks as part of a $30 million contract extension gone bad, but Cahill looks like mostly organizational depth at this point.
