Manager Gibson not worried about Trevor Cahill

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson continues to give
newcomer Trevor Cahill time to find his groove and fit in
with his new club. Sunday Gibson was not on-hand to watch
Cahill’s three inning, two run, two walk performance
against his former club live, but he watched it on tape
and saw where the pitcher is struggling.

“Pretty inconsistent with his stuff. He hasn’t thrown his
changeup as much as he probably will in the season,”
Gibson said. “Threw only three breaking balls.”

Cahill got the loss Sunday and is currently 0-3 this
spring. Gibson says Cahill’s working on some things as
well.

“He’s trying to get his release point on his sinker. He’s
tried some mechanical adjustments and he’s just kind of
tinkering with that, so he’s not locked in by any means.”

Cahill fell behind most of the hitters against his former
team, and this spring has an ERA of 7.88 in eight innings
pitched. But Gibson still has confidence in his new
pitcher.

“He’s working, I talked to him today. He’s working and
he’ll be okay by opening day.”
