Oakland A’s Pitcher Trevor Cahill’s Dramatic Improvement

It was pretty well known around here last season that I was not a fan of A's righthander Trevor Cahill.

That wasn't so much because I didn't think the former top prospect had great potential. It was more due to the fact that Cahill wasn't performing well and had completely ditched his best pitch, a big curveball.

Cahill throws five pitches: a four-seamer in the low-90's, a two-seamer around 90 with unbelievable movement, a low-80's changeup with excellent movement, the big curve, and a slider.

Last season, he essentially became a two-pitch pitcher, using the two-seam fastball and the changeup.

It didn't work.

Cahill had a respectable 4.63 ERA, but his FIP was 5.33, he struck out just 90 batters, and he allowed a horrific 27 homers.
