    Report: A's agree to deal with familiar veteran pitcher

    On the same day the Oakland A's learned they'd be without Jharel Cotton all season, they reportedly reached an agreement with a familiar face to bolster their pitching depth. 

    Oakland agreed to a one-year, Major League deal with Trevor Cahill pending the results of a physical, according to MLB.com's Jane Lee. 

    Cahill, a 2006 A's second-round draft pick, pitched for Oakland from 2009-11. He started 96 games in three seasons with the A's, going 40-35 with a 3.91 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. Since Oakland traded him to the Arizona Diamondbacks in Dec. 2011, Cahill's pitched for six teams. 

    The 30-year-old won a World Series ring with the Chicago Cubs in 2016, and pitched for the San Diego Padres and Kansas City Royals last season. In 2017, he went 4-3 in 21 appearances (14 starts) with a 4.93 ERA and 1.62 WHIP.
