Wow. Really Trevor Cahill? The dude has 22 Ks to 5 BBs in his last 3 games. He is still prone to a bit of wildness (nibbling moreso), but he is actually bringing his strikeout numbers up.
Of the two rookie pitchers last year--Porcello and Cahill--who would have thought the one who would be most successful this year (as a result of bringing up his K/BB ratio) would be Cahill?
I was expecting a half or full season in AAA for Cahill this season. His ERA is still outproducing his peripherals (more games like the last two), but the improvement is a shock. I would have punched you in the face for a bold faced lie if you had told me this offseason that Trevor Cahill would have a 10 K game following a 7 K game.
He really has been impressive lately and it couldn't come at a better time with Anderson and Duke injured. I'm trying not to get too excited though because it was just the Pirates, they make lots of guys look good. :D:-D
