Andrew Cashner struck out 12, but allowed six runs (five earned) in 4 2/3 innings to get the loss as the Padres fell 7-0 to the Mets on Monday.
Cashner's line is one of the weirder ones you'll see this season. He gave up 11 hits and didn't issue a walk along with the 12 punch-outs. The Mets rallied for four runs in the fifth inning to chase Cashner from the game. The right-hander is now 2-8 on the season with a 3.46 ERA, a 1.34 WHIP, and a 72/15 K/BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings. Cashner will try to get back in the win column in Cincinnati against the Reds in his next start. Jun 2 - 12:51 AM

Andrew Cashner yielded three runs on eight hits across seven innings Wednesday in a 5-4 victory versus the Angels.

Cashner struck out six and walked one. The right-hander is pitching pretty well on the whole this season -- he has a 3.00 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 10 starts -- but the win improves his record to a still unsightly 2-7 and the Padres are 2-8 in his starts. Between shoddy defense and an offense that no-shows his outings, Cashner would be forgiven for feeling persecuted. His prognosis will improve as his luck normalizes, as it did tonight (zero errors, five runs of support).

Andrew Cashner allowed four runs -- three earned -- over six innings Saturday in a loss to the Nationals.

Cashner struck out six, but he was shelled for nine hits and walked two in the ugly outing. He's now 1-7 on the year, though he has pitched better than that record suggests. The right-hander will bring a 3.24 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into his next start on the road against the division-rival Dodgers. Cashner has a strong 51/13 K/BB ratio in 50 innings this season.
May 16 - 11:38 PM

Andrew Cashner suffered his fifth loss of the season after yielding six runs (four earned) in six innings against the Giants on Tuesday.

Six of the seven hits Cashner allowed were singles, but he walked three and was hurt by a pair of errors in the third inning as well. He struck out three in the outing. Interestingly, the right-hander has allowed 23 runs on the season, but only 13 of them are earned runs. He has a 3.16 ERA, a 1.35 WHIP, and a 39/11 K/BB ratio in 37 innings. Cashner will close out a road series in Arizona against the Diamondbacks next.
May 6 - 12:45 AM

Andrew Cashner struck out 10 over seven innings but allowed three runs -- two earned -- in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.

For the second straight day a Padres pitcher enjoyed a strong strikeout total against a free-swinging Astros club but ended up with the loss. For Cashner, he allowed six hits and walked one but was simply outpitched by Dallas Keuchel. It was still a largely positive start for the right-hander, who fell to 1-4 but owns a 2.61 ERA and 36/8 K/BB ratio through five starts. Cashner will look to get in the win column Tuesday at the Giants.
Apr 29 - 6:18 PM

Andrew Cashner pitched seven innings of two-run ball Friday in a loss to the Dodgers.

At least this loss was less about defense than the previous two; he just didn't get the help offensively. Cashner has a 2.63 ERA through four starts, even though he's allowed 14 runs in 24 innings (half were unearned). He'll face the Astros next.
Apr 25 - 1:37 AM

Andrew Cashner moved to 1-2 in Sunday's win over the Cubs, pitching six innings without allowing an earned run.

The Cubs did manage two runs off Cashner in the first inning, but both were unearned. After the early trouble, Cashner settled down and kept the Cubs off the board the rest of the way. He struck out five and walked two while scattering five hits across his six innings. Cashner has a 2.65 ERA through three starts. His next outing will come against the rival Dodgers.
Apr 19 - 5:31 PM

Andrew Cashner fell to 0-2 on Monday, yielding four runs (all unearned) in six innings versus the Diamondbacks.

All four runs scored in the second inning. Cashner allowed back-to-back singles to start the inning. The right-hander might have seen his way out of the inning if second baseman Yangervis Solarte hadn't made a one-out throwing error to allow the first run to score. With two outs, Ender Inciarte doubled in two runs and Chris Owings singled in the fourth run. Overall, Cashner yielded seven hits, walked one, and struck out nine. He will go in search of his first win again at Wrigley Field against the Cubs next.
Apr 14 - 1:45 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits over five innings against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Cashner struck out six and walked three, including one walk with the bases loaded in the second. Said walk was of his opposite number, Brandon McCarthy. Cashner's major nemesis in this one was Adrian Gonzalez, though. Gonzalez smashed three home runs off the pitcher (in the first, third and fifth innings), all solo shots. When healthy the last two seasons, Cashner's posted ERAs of 2.55 and 3.09. He won just five games in 2014, a number which should rise given that he's playing with a much improved offense this year.
Apr 9 - 1:57 AM

Andrew Cashner was in mid-season form in Sunday's Cactus League victory over the Mariners, racking up six strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings.

Cashner allowed just one run on four hits and a walk in the contest, that lone run coming on a solo blast off the bat of Jabari Henry. While he's no longer considered the ace of the Padres staff, he has certainly pitched like one this spring, compiling a 2.45 ERA and 14/4 K/BB ratio over 18 1/3 frames.
Mar 29 - 10:11 PM

Andrew Cashner struggled in Tuesday's Cactus League tuneup against the Mariners, giving up three runs on six hits over four innings.

The hard-throwing right-hander whiffed four while issuing a pair of free passes on the afternoon. The M's scored single runs in the first, third and fourth innings, highlighted by a solo homer off the bat of Seth Smith. Even with the rough outing, he sports a solid 3.00 ERA and 8/3 K/BB ratio in 12 innings on the spring.
Mar 24 - 9:58 PM

Andrew Cashner was superb against the Rangers on Saturday, firing four shutout innings.

The Rangers could only scratch out two hits against the tough right-hander, who walked none and struck out none. Cashner posted a 2.55 ERA in 123 1/3 innings last season, but he went on the disabled list twice due to elbow and shoulder problems. The Padres will be crossing their fingers, hoping he can stay healthy in 2015.
Mar 14 - 6:59 PM

Andrew Cashner will travel to Houston on Wednesday to visit his ill mother.

Andrew's mother, Jane Cashner, was diagnosed with leukemia last September and recently had her right leg amputated below the knee after a fall. Cashner left Monday's start after three no-hit innings, which initially appeared to be injury-related, but he was actually getting an update on his mother's condition. He left Padres' camp for three days last week to visit his mother and will do so again this week. Baseball is obviously secondary at a time like this.
Mar 10 - 2:03 PM

Padres manager Bud Black said Monday that Andrew Cashner isn't dealing with any health issue.

Cashner walked off the mound with Black and a trainer after a three-inning appearance Monday, but it's apparently because he was told of a personal matter back in Texas. It's not clear at this point how long he might be away from the team. Cashner struck out three and didn't allow a hit over his three frames Monday.
Mar 9 - 7:08 PM

Andrew Cashner left Monday's Cactus League start against the Cubs with an apparent injury.

Cashner left the ballgame after tossing three hitless innings while walking one and striking out three. He walked off the field with Padres manager Bud Black and a trainer, so it appeared to be some sort of physical issue. We should have more clarity on his status soon.
