After missing over six weeks with hip and shoulder issues, Diamondbacks right-hander Trevor Cahill has been activated from the 15-day disabled list. He’ll make his return this afternoon when he starts against the Pirates in Pittsburgh.
Cahill originally landed on the disabled list on July 1 with a right hip contusion, but he tweaked his throwing shoulder not too long after that. He posted a 4.57 ERA and 22/11 K/BB ratio in 21 2/3 innings over four minor league rehab starts between the D’Backs’ rookie league team and Triple-A Reno.
Cahill thrived during his first season in Arizona, but he has a 4.66 ERA and 69/39 K/BB ratio over 96 2/3 innings across 16 starts this season. The Diamondbacks are hoping for something closer to his 2012 production as they attempt to keep their playoff hopes alive.
