Andrew Cashner (biceps) will pitch in a minor league game Wednesday.
Cashner resumed throwing from a mound last Friday following a pain-killing injection for his right biceps tendinitis, and he's now ready for game action. Having him pitch against minor leaguers would allow the Rangers to backdate a disabled list stint, although it's unclear at this point how long he might be sidelined. Mar 20 - 4:59 PM

Andrew Cashner (biceps) will throw another bullpen session Sunday.

Cashner resumed throwing off a mound on Friday and felt fine. He'll begin the season on the disabled list but is making progress.
Mar 19 - 12:20 PM

Andrew Cashner, on the shelf with biceps soreness, said he felt fine Friday after throwing a 20-pitch bullpen session.

It's an important step for Cashner, but he's still destined for the DL to start the year. The Rangers will likely aim to have him join the rotation towards the end of April or early May. He doesn't seem like a very good bet in even the deepest of AL-only leagues.
Mar 17 - 3:06 PM

Andrew Cashner (biceps) will long-toss for five days before being re-evaluated.

Cashner had a setback with his biceps tendinitis last week, but it's not considered serious and he's been cleared to resume throwing after being given a pain-killing injection. He'll begin the season on the disabled list but potentially won't miss much time if he can avoid another setback.
Mar 12 - 11:05 AM

Andrew Cashner (biceps) was given an injection and will resume a throwing program on Saturday.

Cashner first started dealing with biceps tendinitis a little over a week ago and had a setback earlier this week when he resumed throwing. However, an exam by Dr. Gregory Pearl didn't reveal anything serious. Cashner is not going to be ready for Opening Day, but perhaps he won't be out too long. The Rangers have Chi Chi Gonzalez, Nick Martinez and Dillon Gee around to compete for Cashner's vacated rotation spot, and Tyson Ross (thoracic outlet syndrome) is waiting in the wings. There's also been talk of them possibly bringing back Colby Lewis, although that might not happen now with the relatively good news on Cashner.
Mar 10 - 4:34 PM

Rangers pitching coach Doug Brocail confirmed Thursday that Andrew Cashner (biceps) will not be ready for Opening Day.

It was pretty much a given after Cashner suffered a setback with his biceps this week. The right-hander hasn't made an appearance this spring and it's unclear when he might be cleared to resume throwing. He could be on the shelf for a while. Chi Chi Gonzalez, Nick Martinez and Dillon Gee figure to compete for the rotation spot vacated by Cashner. Tyson Ross will also be an option at some point.
Mar 9 - 2:15 PM

Andrew Cashner has been shut down again with renewed biceps discomfort.

Cashner was diagnosed earlier this month with biceps tendinitis and experienced lingering pain while trying to resume throwing this week. He can probably be ruled out for the start of the season at this point. Cashner, 30, landed a one-year, $10 million free agent contract from the Rangers in November despite posting a 5.25 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 132 innings last summer between the Padres and Marlins.
Mar 9 - 10:41 AM

Andrew Cashner (biceps) has played catch two days in a row without any issues.

Cashner was shut down for a bit after developing some inflammation in his right biceps, but he said Sunday that he's had "no pain for three days in a row." The righty should be fine come Opening Day as long as he doesn't have a setback. "I just had a lot of inflammation but I feel a lot better now and played catch the last two days and haven’t had any problems so barring anything new I don’t think I’ll have any issues," said Cashner. "I think it’s just more about erring on the side of caution."
Mar 5 - 11:30 AM

Andrew Cashner has been shut down due to biceps tendinitis.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News writes that the Rangers do not believe the injury will affect Cashner's availability for the start of the 2017 regular season, but there's no way of saying that for sure right now. Cashner felt some upper-arm discomfort during a bullpen session earlier this week in Rangers camp and hasn't thrown since. He'll be evaluated by Dr. Keith Meister sometime Thursday or Friday. Cashner, 30, scored a one-year, $10 million free agent contract from Texas over the winter despite posting a rough 5.25 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 132 innings last season between San Diego and Miami.
Mar 2 - 3:00 PM

Rangers signed RHP Andrew Cashner to a one-year, $10 million contract.

The deal was first reported last Friday and has now become official. Cashner is coming off a season where he posted a 5.25 ERA over 132 innings for the Padres and Marlins. His results have never caught up with his stuff, and it's hard to see a big bounce-back season coming with a move to the American League. That said, there are worse one-year gambles to take.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers are close to signing Andrew Cashner.

MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan says it's a one-year, $10 million contract. Cashner is from Texas and the Rangers have been connected to him before, so this pairing doesn't come as a surprise. The hard-throwing righty has flashed promise but ultimately been a disappointment to this point, as he's coming off a year that saw him post a 5.25 ERA across 132 innings. A move to the American League probably doesn't bode well for a potential bounce-back season from Cashner.

Andrew Cashner struggled in a no-decision against the Nationals on Friday, surrendering four runs on seven hits over four innings.

The veteran right-hander walked two and punched out three in the ballgame. After being staked to an early 4-0 lead, Cashner gave it all back in the fourth inning, including a pair of homers to Anthony Rendon and Stephen Drew. He finishes a highly-disappointing 2016 season with a 5-11 record, 5.25 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 112/60 K/BB ratio across 132 innings.

Andrew Cashner tossed five innings of one-run ball Friday against the Braves.

Cashner ran into trouble in the second and third, but he managed to minimize the damage. All told, he gave up three hits while walking three and striking out six. The impending free agent now owns a 5.73 ERA over 10 starts and one relief appearance with Miami. He’ll square off against the Mets next week in his final start of the year.

Andrew Cashner coughed up seven runs over just two innings but managed to escape with a no-decision in Monday's loss to the Braves.

He gave up six hits, walked two and didn't record a strikeout before being pulled after letting the first five batters reach in the third inning. Cashner has basically alternated good starts with awful ones since joining the Marlins, which pretty much sums up his career. He'll face the Phillies on the road on Sunday.
Mon, Sep 12, 2016 11:22:00 PM

Andrew Cashner was dominant over 5 1/3 innings against the Phillies on Wednesday, striking out nine hitters without allowing a run as the Marlins recorded a 6-0 victory.

He gave up four harmless hits and issued two free passes. He was facing a weak, punchless Phillies lineup that is last in the majors in scoring this year and he didn't have any problem mowing right through it. Cashner has not done his fantasy owners many favors this year but he came up big tonight at a critical time with many fantasy leagues heading into the playoffs. He lowered his ERA from 5.00 to 4.77 while earning his fifth win in 23 starts. Cashner lines up for another favorable matchup in his next turn against the Braves on Tuesday.
