What's wrong with Trevor Cahill?

Postby ATLbraves » Thu Jun 16, 2011 12:02 am

Does anyone have any insight on what is wrong with Cahill? He has now allowed at least four earned runs in each of his last four outings and hasn't won a start since early May.

Do you think he will right the ship this Sunday against the Giants?

I was actually wondering the same thing. I don't know if I should drop him or what.

definitely wouldn't drop him with the Giants coming up, but his last outing was pretty horrific.

yeah I personally think he can get back on track since he is facing the Giants next, but Pablo Sandoval is back so that might change things.

Pitched a little over his head to start the year and is now coming back to closer to what he is.

Do you still think he will have a season close to what he did last year?

I would highly doubt that... if I had to guess, I'd say high 3 ERA with a low K rate... nothing I'd be too excited about, personally.

Bingo. And I wouldn't expect the wins to start flowing in either. He does pitch for the A's, after all.

Yeah, he got a bit lucky last year with a .236BABIP...he's currently at .278 which is more like it. HIS LOB% is also at about as high as I would expect but it may even drop a couple % also. He's a solid real life pitcher but not typically going to be a force in fantasy for no other reason than his K rate will be in the 5.5-6 K/9 range over a full season. I can see him maintain a low to mid 3's ERA but overall he's just not a must have in fantasy. He would have been a good sell high a few weeks ago.

He has certainly had a higher strikeout rate so far this year then he had this time last year, but you're right he probably won't be able to keep that up. But I still think he will be a very valuable pitcher for where he was drafted in most leagues.
