In a trade market that doesn’t feature many prominent starting pitching arms, Padres right-hander Trevor Cahill is drawing interest as the trade deadline nears, according to MLB.com’s AJ Cassavell.
Cassavell points out that Cahill’s next two starts could impact what the Padres receive in a potential trade involving the starter.
Cahill, 29, is having a solid season, pitching to a 3.14 ERA and 3.22 FIP over 57.1 innings. He’s made 10 starts, and the Padres could capitalize if they don’t plan to re-sign him.
Cahill is slated to become a free agent at the end of the season.
Here’s the latest from around the National League West:
- In a notable roster move, the Dodgers designated Sergio Romo for assignment.
- Several teams probably would benefit from adding Eduardo Nunez. Will the Giants trade him before the deadline?
- Patrick Corbin has rebounded and it’s really paying off for the Diamondbacks in 2017.
- It’s a buyer’s market this summer, which puts the Rockies in an interesting spot.
- San Diego is tanking, which doesn’t look great for baseball at the moment.
