Good FG article on Cahill

Postby Tim » Sat Dec 19, 2015 10:01 am

The Revitalization of Trevor Cahill

Maybe Cahill’s last two months of 2015 was a mirage, and he’ll revert to something closer to his less effective ways. But given how many changes he’s made, the increase in velocity, and the results he’s shown in that small sample, we should at least be intrigued enough to watch his 2016 campaign with interest. There could be a very good bargain here for the Cubs — a capable, ground-balling middle reliever who can possibly step into a spot start or two should the need arise. That’s not a bad guy to have around, especially given the price. Much stranger things have happened than a formerly ineffective starter becoming a good reliever.

Isn't that like how 90% of relievers come about?

Probably more, I can't imagine there are many guys who only ever got pure reliever innings while making it to and then through pro ball.

There's a decent number of college closers drafted for relief roles who only get pure reliever innings.
