Pirates Reportedly Made Better Offer to Trevor Cahill Than Cubs

By Jason Shetler

Back in late November, ESPN’s Buster Olney reported that pitcher Trevor Cahill was considering the Pirates as an option to sign with, but chose to re-sign with the Chicago Cubs in mid-December on a one-year deal instead. 

Cubs pitching coach Chris Bosio has now come out and said that the 27-year-old right-hander turned down a two-year offer from the Pirates to be a starter, so he could return to the Cubs bullpen. Cahill began last season pitching for the Atlanta Braves. He struggled mightily with them, was released, and signed on with the Cubs in mid-August. Cahill pitched very well with Chicago in 11 relief appearances where he posted a 2.12 ERA along with a WHIP of 0.77.
