The Arizona Diamondbacks begin the first road trip of the their season after a three-game sweep of the San Francisco Giants. They now, after an off day Monday, start off their six-game roadie with three in San Diego to face the Padres. Starting off the series on the mound will be a pitcher making his first start in the National League in Trevor Cahill.
Cahill was acquired by the D-backs along with reliever Craig Breslow, for top pitching prospect Jarrod Parker. His spring was not great, but the sinker-baller will get his first real start against a Padres team not expected to do much this season.
