Cahill signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers on Thursday, SB Nation reports.

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 some added organizational depth over the remainder of the season.

Cahill was designated for assignment Thursday.

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.

Cahill is being moved to the bullpen, but he won't necessarily stay there for long, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

The Braves recalled Mike Foltynewicz from Triple-A Gwinnett to replace Cahill as the starter for Friday's game against the Reds. While Cahill could eventually get another shot to join the rotation, he's been one of the worst pitchers in the major leagues thus far, posting an 0-3 record, 9.42 ERA, 2.02 WHIP and 5:8 K:BB ratio over 14.1 innings.

Cahill gave up four runs on five hits and three walks across 6.0 innings in a loss to the Phillies on Sunday, dropping his record to 0-3.

This was Cahill's best outing of the young season, although that's not saying much considering the fact that he came in with a 9.95 ERA through only 6.1 combined innings in his first two starts. The righty will look to pick up that elusive first win with the Braves on Friday against the Reds.

Cahill struck out one and walked one while allowing four runs -- three earned -- on five hits over four innings in a losing effort against the Mets on Tuesday.

It's reasonable to think that the Braves will begin considering alternatives for the rotation if Cahill is unable to turn things around soon. He's tossed a combined 6.1 innings in two starts with seven earned runs allowed on 10 hits with a meager 3:4 K:BB. He's currently on track to start against the Phillies on Sunday in Philadelphia.

Cahill went just 2.1 innings in his Braves debut Tuesday, giving up four runs on five hits and three walks with two strikeouts in an 8-2 loss to the Marlins.

Cahill, a late-spring acquisition from Arizona, struggled against the top half of the Marlins' order, allowing three runs before recording even his second out. After facing the minimum in the second, Cahill then issued two walks -- including one with the bases loaded -- and hit a batter before being lifted in the third. The 2.1 frames marked Cahill's fewest in a start since an injury-shortened outing back on June 19, 2013. It's not how you want to start off with a new club, but Cahill figures to continue starting every fifth day for the foreseeable future with Mike Minor (shoulder) suffering a recent a setback.

Cahill will start Tuesday against the Marlins.

Cahill was available out of the bullpen in the early going this season with the Braves not needing a fifth starter until Tuesday, but he did not end up making a relief appearance. He will oppose right-hander Tom Koehler in his Braves debut.

Cahill will work out of the bullpen until the Braves need a fifth starter Apr. 15, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Cahill, whom the Braves acquired from the Diamondbacks on Thursday for Josh Elander and cash, will serve as the team's fifth option to begin the year, with Eric Stults slotting into the No. 4 starter role. The 27-year-old Cahill struggled to a 3-12 record, 5.61 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 110.2 inning with Arizona last season, but his FIP was more than 170 points lower at 3.89.

Cahill was traded to the Braves on Thursday for outfielder Josh Elander and cash considerations, Steve Gilbert of reports.

The move likely indicates the Diamondbacks will begin the youth movement in the near future. Archie Bradley was battling for the fifth spot for the club, and the spot may have opened up for him. Meanwhile, Cahill will likely serve as the No. 4 starter for the Braves, leaving multiple candidates to fill the fifth slot for his new club.

The Diamondbacks are in active trade discussions involving Cahill, with the Braves believed to have interest, The Arizona Republic reports.

Cahill was named to the Arizona starting rotation Monday, but the team is apparently interested in going with a cheaper option. Manager Chip Hale said Archie Bradley is still the mix for both a spot in the bullpen and a spot in the rotation, hinting that the organization's top prospect may be in line to replace Cahill. While the Braves are projected to rank among the worst teams in the National League this season, Cahill would likely benefit from a move away from Chase Field, even if it also meant less run support.
