How Trevor Cahill's versatility fits in with Giants' pitching plans

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The overall stats don't paint Trevor Cahill as someone you would think you have to pay a lot of attention to this spring. The Giants' latest non-roster invitee had a 5.98 ERA for the Los Angeles Angels last season along with a 1.46 WHIP, and he struck out just 7.1 batters per nine innings.

But here are the numbers that might really matter: 3, 3, 2 2/3, 2 2/3, 2 1/3, 2, 2.

Those are the lengths of some of Cahill's relief outings last year in which he gave up one run or held the opponent scoreless, and that kind of production on a consistent basis would make him a perfect fit for the 2020 Giants staff.
