Locking up young players shortly after they reach the majors is all the rage nowadays in main League Baseball. It should come as no surprise then the Oakland Athletics secured Trevor Cahill on Monday. Looking to build on his breakout season, Sam Acho Jersey Cahill signed a 5 year deal worth approximately $30.5 million. Oakland also holds two team choices on Cahill valued at $13 million and $13.5 million. Despite Cahills 2010 breakout, hes been a well known regre sion candidate this season. With that in mind, was Cahill a great candidate for an extension?
There have been a number of young pitchers locked up to similar deals recently, meaning there exists a lot of comparable contracts to check out when evaluating this deal. Cahills recent extension is shockingly much like those of Jon Lester, Ricky Romero, Clay Buchholz and Yovani Gallardo. Each one of those pitchers signed five-year extensions for around $30 million (to some tee). Cahill, however, doesnt compare Jordan Howard Jersey favorably when hes set up against those pitchers. By the time each one of the above pitchers had signed their extensions, all of them had posted a greater single season WAR than Cahill. Cahill also carries the cheapest K/9 rate of these starters, which isnt nece sarily something to be concerned about with Cahill.
Even if he rates as the worst of the aforementioned group (which is, admittedly, a pretty strong number of pitcher), his deal is team-friendly. As numerous FanGraphs readers are aware, 1 win may be worth approximately $5 million. Last season, Cahill was worth 2.2 WAR, great for a little over $10 million. For anyone counting in your own home, Cahill earned greater than a third of his new contract this year. Robbie Gould Jersey Despite the fact that hes an applicant for regre sion this year, Cahill has the skills that should get this to deal a good deal for the As.
If Cahill can improve on his breakout season, Oakland have a complete steal on their hands. Only 23, Cahills strikeouts in the minors havent translated to the big leagues quite yet. If he is doing manage to find his strikeout pitch, however, Cahill can be one of the best starters within the AL. For a pitcher like Cahill, who was always thought to be a top prospect, it would be foolish to completely count out further improvement.
If Cahill can increase his strikeout rate, Oakland should have no problem exercising his options. As Dave Cameron Jared Allen Jersey explained recently, adding team options to the end of a deal often benefits they. If Cahill becomes a pumpkin, Oakland isnt bogged down by a terrible contract. If Cahill continues to excel, however, Oakland will severely underpay him within the length of this deal (and also the prime of his career).
As with most of those kinds of contracts, they comes out on top again. Cahill may have a few more concerns than some of the other pitchers that received similar deals, but that shouldnt stop him from outperforming his recent extension (barring a devastating injury). The truth that Oakland holds two team choices on Cahill further sweetens the offer for that As. Even when Pat O'Donnell Jersey Cahill is terrible during the period of the contract, Oakland wont pay him much per season and may decline his option once he reaches that point.
