Cahill (6-4) took the loss against the Twins on Sunday, giving up five runs (three earned) on five hits over 3.1 innings, striking out five and walking none in Oakland's 5-1 defeat.

EDGE Analysis

It was Cahill's first start in two weeks due to a back injury, and he ended up with a lackluster final line after the Twins tagged him for five runs and chased him from the contest after 65 pitches. The right-hander got off to a hot start to his 2018 campaign but he hasn't fared as well in the second half of the season, as his ERA is now up to 3.91 - which is actually just about in line with his career mark of 4.08.

Cahill (back) will start Sunday's game against the Twins, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill hasn't pitched since Sept. 9 after experiencing some upper-back discomfort, but the Athletics cleared him to start the series finale after he completed a 35-pitch bullpen session Wednesday without incident. With their magic number sitting at one entering Sunday's contest, the Athletics will hope Cahill can give them some quality innings in his return to action as the team looks to punch its playoff ticket. Over his 10 outings since the All-Star break, Cahill has posted a 4.47 ERA and 43:26 K:BB across 50.1 innings.

Cahill (back) is "penciled in" for Sunday's start against the Twins, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill is scheduled to return to the mound after dealing with upper-back discomfort over the past couple weeks. His last start came against Texas on Sept. 9, but a successful bullpen session Wednesday indicated his readiness to get back in the rotation. Across 19 starts this year, he's logged a 3.77 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with an 8.2 K/9.

Cahill (back) could rejoin the rotation during Oakland's three-game series against the Twins over the weekend, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill hasn't pitched since Sept. 9 due to upper-back discomfort. The right-hander was able to throw 35 pitches in a bullpen session Wednesday, and it sounds like he could be cleared to rejoin the rotation sometime over the weekend if he checks out OK in the coming days.

Cahill (back) threw from 120 feet Tuesday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill progressed from playing catch Sunday after he received an injection to address upper-back discomfort last week. The Athletics will see how the veteran right-hander feels Wednesday before moving further in his recovery.

Cahill (back) played catch Sunday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill was feeling good after an injection. He won't start Tuesday but will throw off the mound that day and could potentially start at some point during next weekend's series against the Twins.

Cahill had a trigger-point injection in his back Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill has already been ruled out for his next outing because of lower-back discomfort, although the Athletics are hopeful the shot will speed up his recovery. "Hopefully that alleviates the issue," manager Doug Melvin said. "We'll see how he responds." If Cahill feels better following treatment, he could start Tuesday against the Angels.

Cahill (back) will not start Saturday against the Rays, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill is dealing with a rhomboid muscle issue and has returned to Oakland to undergo an MRI. The A's are hoping the right-hander will only be forced to miss one turn in the rotation due to the injury. If Cahill only misses one start, manager Bob Melvin hinted that he could make two starts during the team's upcoming homestand, which begins Sept. 18 and runs through Sept. 23. Liam Hendriks will likely "open" Saturday's game in place of Cahill, with Frankie Montas or Daniel Mengden following in long relief.

Cahill is dealing with a back issue and may not be able to start Saturday against the Rays, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear when Cahill picked up the injury, but it could help explain his poor start against the Rangers his last time out (three runs with six walks in 2.2 innings). The right-hander has been receiving treatment all week for a rhomboid muscle issue on the right side of his upper back, and he said he's taking things day-to-day. Should Cahill not be able to take the hill, Liam Hendriks would probably lead a bullpen game in his place.
