D-backs' Trevor Cahill makes second rehabilitation start
Trevor Cahill took another step towards returning to the Arizona Diamondbacks rotation when he made his second rehabilitation start for Triple-A Reno on Monday night.
The right-hander struggled in the Aces' 7-3 loss, surrendering six earned runs on six hits with six strikeouts through 4.1 innings. He gave up back-to-back home runs, including one to his counterpart, pitcher Sam Dyson.
Cahill has been sidelined with a right hip contusion since July 1.
