Free agent pitcher Trevor Cahill is considering the Pirates as an option to sign with on a one-year deal, this according to ESPN’s Buster Olney.
Cahill spent 2015 with the Chicago Cubs and the Atlanta Braves where he combined for a 5.40 ERA in 43.1 innings. Despite the poor ERA, he put up a 3.92 Fielding Independent Pitching along with an impressive 63% groundball rate. Based on getting a ton of groundballs, as well as not being an above league average pitcher since 2012, Cahill definitely fits the Pirates reclamation project qualifications.
