For the first time since 2011, Trevor Cahill will start a game for the Oakland A's.
The 30-year-old right-hander will be recalled from Triple-A Nashville to start against the Chicago White Sox Tuesday night at the Coliseum. It figures to be a packed house, as tickets to the game are free, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Athletics' first game in Oakland.
Cahill has made two starts for Nashville this season, allowing four earned runs in 9 2/3 innings, while striking out 10 and walking seven. He signed a one-year deal with the A's in March, after previously pitching for Oakland from 2009-11.
Last season with the Padres and Royals, Cahill went 4-3 with a 4.93 ERA in 21 appearances, including 14 starts. For his career, he has a record of 73-79 with a 4.11 ERA and 1.37 WHIP.
Cahill's best season came with the A's in 2010, when he went 18-8 with a 2.97 ERA and was named an American League All-Star.
