News: Cahill signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers on Thursday, True Blue LA reports.
Impact: The Braves cut bait with Cahill last month after the right-hander struggled to a 7.52 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in 15 appearances spanning 26.1 innings. Cahill is expected to need a few weeks to build up to a starter's workload, but he should eventually slot into the rotation at Triple-A Oklahoma City and provide the the Dodgers with organizational depth over the remainder of the season.

Impact: Cahill has been hit-or-miss since being moved to the bullpen, owning seven scoreless appearances, but getting rattled for five hits twice. The right-hander sits with a 7.52 season ERA and 1.78 WHIP, and the Braves finally decided they could better use the roster spot on another bullpen arm. In a corresponding move, lefty Dana Eveland's contract was purchased from Triple-A Gwinnett.
