Cahill spent 2019 with the Los Angeles Angels. He was paid $9 million and had a very rough year. In 102.3 innings, he had an ERA of 5.98 and gave up 25 home runs. Obviously, the Angels chose not to re-sign him.
In 2016, he was left off the Cubs’ postseason roster as they would go on to win the World Series. Although he is not recognized as a World Series champion, he was given a World Series ring. In his 11-year career he has played for seven teams total, including two separate stints with the Oakland Athletics.
He is 84-92 with a career ERA of 4.21. The Giants have him on a low-risk, incentive-based deal. San Francisco starts its spring training on Saturday, February 22.
