NL West Notes: Trevor Cahill drawing interest, Dodgers designate Sergio Romo

Here’s the latest from around the National League West.

MLB: San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

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’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.
