SnakeBytes 8/27: Cahill Crushed

Looking to continue his run of good starts, Trevor Cahill was pounded by the NL West leaders and the injury-plagued D-backs couldn't respond in due fashion. They'll look to bounce back against Clayton Kershaw... or maybe not.

Daily D-backs

Cahill knocked around by Dodgers | ARI Recap
If there were contending teams looking at Trevor Cahill as a possible August trade pickup, the D-backs right-hander certainly didn't increase his value on Tuesday night. The Dodgers scored eight runs against Cahill as they rolled past the D-backs, 9-5, at Chase Field. Earlier in the day, there were conflicting rumors about whether the Angels were targeting Cahill to help fill the hole in the rotation left by the injury to Garrett Richards

Kershaw eyes MLB-high 16th win |
When Clayton Kershaw comes to town, opposing teams generally have the good sense to go down quietly. Kershaw has been the most dominant pitcher in the Major Leagues this season, but the last time Kershaw pitched at Chase Field, it appeared the D-backs didn't get the memo. They thrashed Kershaw for seven runs in 1 2/3 innings on May 17 in what was easily the reigning National League Cy Young Award winner's worst start of the year.

Patrick Corbin won't be ready for Opening Day |
"I think with Patrick it will be more like June for him," Gibson said. "He'd probably punch me if heard me saying that but you're really going to take your time and make sure he's ready to go. You're not going to expect him to come back and throw 220 innings. You kind of manage his rehab through innings and put him in a position to finish strong. … We're going to make sure we err on the side of very cautious."
