Trevor Cahill cleared waivers after being designated for assignment earlier this week and the Diamondbacks have demoted the 26-year-old veteran of six big-league seasons to Single-A.
It’s no surprise that none of the other 29 teams wanted anything to do with Cahill because he’s making $7.7 million this season and is owed $12 million in 2015, plus future buyouts on team options as part of a five-year deal signed in 2011. And of course he also has a 5.66 ERA in 41 innings this season, so that didn’t help either.
There’s a good chance he’ll be back in the majors at some point relatively soon considering his 3.89 ERA in nearly 1,000 career innings prior to this season, but in the meantime he’s not taking up a spot on the 40-man roster and it’s possible the Diamondbacks could look to trade him if they eat enough salary.
