OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Oakland right-hander Trevor Cahill was put on the 10-day disabled list because on an impingement in his pitching elbow, a move retroactive to Sunday.
Cahill signed with the A’s in mid-March after injuries depleted Oakland’s starting rotation. The 30-year-old started the season in the minors, was called up April 17 and went 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in four starts. He struck out a career-best 12 in six innings against Baltimore on Saturday.
Manager Bob Melvin said he was unsure who will Cahill’s rotation spot.
Kendall Graveman, the A’s opening-day starter, could be called up. He went 0-5 with an 8.89 ERA in six starts for Oakland and is 1-0 with a 6.00 ERA in two outings with Triple-A Nashville.
Outfielder Dustin Fowler was recalled from Nashville on Wednesday.
