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.

    Cahill’s effectiveness depends on his groundball-inducing sinker finding the strike zone often enough for hitters to offer at the movement just off the zone, and then the infield defense getting to enough of those groundballs to keep his BABIP below league average. When it all goes right it’s a thing of beauty: see 2010 and his 2.97 ERA.

    When he’s out of the zone too much, well, see the first half of 2013.
