Cahill reports progress with injured shoulder

PHOENIX -- D-backs right-hander Trevor Cahill said his ailing right shoulder felt better after playing catch Monday.

Cahill was initially put on the disabled list last week with a right hip contusion, but experienced some tightness in his shoulder while throwing a few days ago.

"I played catch yesterday it was a lot better," Cahill said before Tuesday night's game. "Just kind of monitor it, make sure it's good."

For now Cahill is taking things slow, just playing catch from around 90 feet.

"He might throw a bullpen sometime this week," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said.
