D-backs Possibly On Verge Of Trade For RHP Trevor Cahill

The Rumor Mill has been grinding away this afternoon, as talks have began to materialize between the D-backs and Oakland A's on a trade for young right-handed starter Trevor Cahill. Nothing is certain yet, but the most heavily rumored pieces involved from Arizona's end are right-handed pitching prospect Jarrod Parker and outfielder Collin Cowgill, with A's left-handed reliever Craig Breslow possibly headed to Arizona. Follow after the jump to see what the latest rumors and links are telling us.

From Jon Heyman:

cahill trade talk: skaggs untouchable, bauer ineligible to deal. parker, "roy oswalt type," is 3rd elite young pitcher

From Jim Bowden:

The Diamondbacks are close to a deal with the Oakland A's that would send Trevor Cahill to D-backs...I would think Parker and Pollock fair u?

From Ken Rosenthal:

Sources: #Dbacks close on Cahill. RHP Jarrod Parker, OF Collin Cowgill in play for #Athletics. Could be others coming from A's. #MLB

From Nick Piecoro:

Hearing talks have advanced between Dbacks-A's regarding RHP Trevor Cahill. RHP Jarrod Parker thought to be involved.

From Bob Nightengale:

The #Dbacks plan on Parker being their 5th starter so he is NOT in potential deal

From Ken Rosenthal:

To clarify: Sources say Cahill and Breslow to #Diamondbacks, Parker, Cowgill and others to #Athletics. Not done. Perhaps fluid. But close.

From Nick Piecoro:

Dbacks source says nothing is done, that they're still "talking names" ... Does sound like they're getting close.

From Jim Bowden:

Diamondbacks and A's are close to a deal that will send Trevor Cahill and Craig Breslow to the D-backs for Jarrod Parker, Collin Cowgill +

As of now, there's no formal news to report, but as my subjective opinion, you know something is going to go down when Bowden says it is. Say what you want about him, but he has excellent sources in the industry and has rarely been wrong about a rumor this off-season.
