Report: Trevor Cahill signs one-year deal with Angels

3 Comments

The Angels continue to pick up spare pitching parts: Ken Rosenthal reports that they have signed Trevor Cahill to a one-year, $9 million deal. This comes on the heels of a one-year, $11 million deal with Matt Harvey.

Cahill, who somehow is still just 30, pitched in 21 games — starting 20 — for Oakland last season. He was pretty decent too, going 7-4 with a 3.76 ERA and a K/BB ratio of 100/41 in 110 innings, allowing only eight homers.

He probably can’t be counted on to start 30+ games anymore — he hasn’t done that for a while — but he’s a nice swingman type who can handle starting duties for at least a chunk of the season. And the price is reasonable.

Doubleheader between Cardinals and Tigers postponed

A doubleheader between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers this week is being postponed to allow more time for additional COVID-19 testing.

MLB opted to postpone Thursday’s doubleheader to continue additional testing while players and staff are quarantined before the team returns to play. More details about the Cardinals’ resumption of play will be announced later this week.

The Cardinals had a series against Pittsburgh set to start on Monday postponed after a weekend series against the Cubs was scrapped due to three positive coronavirus tests.

St. Louis had two more players and a staff member test positive for the virus on Friday and have had eight positive players overall, including star catcher Yadier Molina.

There have now been 29 games postponed by Major League Baseball because of coronavirus concerns. The Cardinals have not played since July 30 and have had 15 games scrapped.

Miami and Philadelphia each had seven games postponed earlier and have returned to the field since the disruptions.
