Cahill will likely back up spot starter Mike Montgomery on Saturday in Colorado, the Daily Herald's Bruce Miles reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will be a tandem spot start essentially, and any owner hoping to get a win out of this game from the Cubs' side would be better off picking up Cahill, as Montgomery almost certainly won't log five innings -- as he hasn't pitched more than two innings since July 17. Of course, the game is also in Coors Field, so it would be wise to just avoid Montgomery and Cahill on Saturday if the rate states are important. Cahill should continue to serve as a long man/swing man for the foreseeable future.

Cahill (2-3) pitched five shutout innings on two hits and two walks while striking out three to earn the win Tuesday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill (knee) was recalled from the disabled list to start the first game of a doubleheader, and served as the 26th man on the roster, so expect him to be sent down to Triple-A by the end of the day. However, after making 33 appearances out of the bullpen this year, he gave the Cubs an excellent start by throwing 83 pitches to cover five innings.

Cahill was officially activated from the disabled list to start Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against Milwaukee.

EDGE Analysis

The move is essentially a formality at this point, as the Cubs announced over the weekend that Cahill would get the nod in Game 1. Cahill is technically being recalled as the team's 26th man for the doubleheaders, so he'll likely be optioned to Triple-A following Game 2.

Cahill (knee) will start the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against Milwaukee, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill's start could be a short one, as he never topped four innings during an extended six-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa, throwing between 36 and 68 pitches in his final three starts. After Tuesday, he'll likely be used as a long reliever and could be the first choice for spot starts.

Cahill (knee) will start a game during Tuesday's doubleheader against the Brewers, ESPN's Jesse Rogers reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was widely speculated that Cahill would be called upon to get a spot start next week, as the Cubs needed a sixth starter and he was the only logical option. He has joined the Cubs, but likely won't be activated from the DL until prior to Tuesday's doubleheader. It is unclear if he will start the day game or the night game. The Cubs have been stretching Cahill out at Triple-A during his rehab assignment and he has thrown between 36 and 68 pitches in each of his last three outings. With that in mind, it is hard to expect him to throw more than 80-90 pitches in Tuesday's start, but if he can log five innings, that could be enough for him to walk off with the win, given the strength of his offense and the feebleness of the Brewers' offense.

Cahill (knee) is being stretched out while on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa, and could be an option to get a spot start with the big league club when a sixth starter is needed next week.

EDGE Analysis

The Cubs need a sixth starter due to a doubleheader on Aug. 16, so the fact that Cahill has thrown between three and four innings in each of his last four rehab appearances makes him a strong candidate to get that start. Chicago doesn't have a lot of big-league ready starting pitching depth, especially after trading Adam Warren back to the Yankees, so the fact that Cahill is on the 40-man roster and will be stretched out enough to start next week makes him a likely option. The Cubs will need to activate Cahill by Aug. 17, as he began his rehab assignment on July 18, so he could start against the Brewers, either as part of next Tuesday's doubleheader or next Wednesday. He has a 3.97 ERA, 1.92 WHIP and 21:11 K:BB in 17.2 innings across five appearances in the Pacific Coast League during this rehab stint.

Cahill (knee) made his first rehab appearance Monday, throwing 2.2 innings for Triple-A Iowa, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill gave up three runs on four hits and three walks, so he'll probably need a few more appearances before he gets activated.

The Cubs placed Cahill on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a knee issue, Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

The extent of Cahill's setback is not certain, but he will not open the second half on the Cubs' active roster. Clayton Richard will replace him in the team's bullpen.

Cahill struck out two and walked one over three scoreless innings against the Mets on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The Cubs needed to dip into their bullpen when starter Jason Hammel got rocked, and Cahill at least was able to stop the bleeding. For the season he has a 2.37 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 31 appearances.

Cahill struck out three in 1.2 scoreless innings against the Phillies on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill gave up three hits in the performance. He's been an unsung hero in the Cubs' bullpen this year, as he has a 2.35 ERA, but his walk rate (14 walks in 23 innings) contribute to his below-average WHIP of 1.39. Still, in his last five appearances - all scoreless - he has struck out 12 and walked three in eight innings.
