Trevor Cahill's second start...

Cahill was pretty lucky to get out of his first major league start with a 3.60 ERA. He was probably pretty nerved up, and it showed. He gave up 5 hits and 5 walks in 5 innings while only striking out 1. His sinker was solid, not great and his secondary stuff was inconsistent at best.

 

Today he started against Seattle and carried a no hitter through 6-1/3 before Beltre had a solid line drive single to CF. Sweeney ended up hitting a misplayed line drive to CF which ended up as a RBI double to give Cahill his first ER of the game. He ended up getting through 7 IP with 97 pitches, giving up 2 hits and 3 walks while striking out 3. His sinker looked much more lively today with great downward movement that sat 89-92 MPH and touched 94 more then once (with less movement). His changeup moves much like his sinker, but he also throws it 79-80 and was much more consistent with it today. He only through a few curve balls, but it looked much better as well. I'm sure Cahill will hit some bumps in the road, but all in all I think he's come out pretty well through his first two major league starts at barely 21 years old.
