Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - The Arizona Diamondbacks have placed pitcher
Trevor Cahill on the 15-day disabled list with a hip contusion that has
affected his most recent performances.
Cahill exited a June 19 matchup against Miami after just one inning, taking a
line drive from the Marlins' Marcell Ozuna off his hip. The right-hander did
return to the mound six days later at Washington, but has been tagged for 12
runs and four homers over just 9 1/3 innings in losing his last two starts.
The two rough efforts dropped Cahill to 3-10 in 17 starts this season, while
his current 4.66 earned run average is the highest of his five-year tenure in
Arizona has yet to name a starter for Cahill's next turn in the rotation,
which was scheduled for Friday against Colorado.
The Diamondbacks recalled reliever Chaz Roe from Triple-A Reno to take
Cahill's roster spot, with the right-hander available for Monday's road game
versus the New York Mets.
Roe, who spent seven seasons in the farm systems of Colorado and Seattle from
2005-11 and pitched in the independent American Association last season,
recorded four saves and a 2.00 ERA in nine appearances with Reno.
