Andrew Cashner allowed eight hits and four runs over six innings in a loss to the Indians on Sunday.
The one bright spot for Cashner was that he was able to strike out seven while walking just two, but outside of that the right-hander was ineffective against the Cleveland lineup. Cashner is back on the mound on Friday in a home start against the Tigers. Apr 22 - 4:23 PM

Andrew Cashner gave up three runs across six innings of work Tuesday in a loss to the Tigers.

Cashner walked three batters for the third start in a row, and he was victimized by a Victor Martinez two-run home run in the second inning. The control needs to improve, but Cashner is striking out more batters so far this season and has put up a 3.00 ERA in his first four outings. He’ll go up against the Indians on Sunday.
Apr 17 - 9:41 PM

Andrew Cashner spun seven scoreless frames but had to settle for a no-decision in Tuesday’s loss to the Blue Jays.

Cashner and Aaron Sanchez matched zeros all night, with Sanchez working on a no-hitter into the eighth inning. He walked three but yielded just four singles and struck out six. Cashner has punched out 16 batters over his first 18 innings this season, which qualifies as a nice surprise after he missed very few bats last year. He’ll take a 2.50 ERA into Boston in his next start.
Apr 10 - 9:57 PM

Andrew Cashner held the Yankees to one run over six innings in a win Thursday.

Cashner actually blinked first in the staredown with Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka, allowing a solo home run to Aaron Judge in the sixth inning, but the O's provided five runs of support the following half-inning to get him his first win of the season. The homer was one of just two hits given up by Cashner on the night. He also walked three and struck out five. Through two start with the Baltimore club, Cashner owns a 4.09 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. He'll take on the Blue Jays in his next start Tuesday.
Apr 5 - 10:12 PM

Andrew Cashner surrendered five runs (four earned) on six hits over five innings in Saturday's loss to the Twins.

Cashner was not knocked around for a big inning, but rather slowly roughed up with water torture. Jason Castro, Miguel Sano and Max Kepler all hit him up with solo home runs to ever-so-slowly move the Twins out to a 6-0 lead through the first five innings. The veteran right-hander signed on with the O's on a two-year deal in mid-February. He turned in a 3.40 ERA in 166 2/3 frames with the Rangers last season. While Cashner is more than capable of a respectable ERA in 2018, he offers little-to-no upside in terms of the strikeout, which significantly caps him from true fantasy relevancy. A road showdown with the Yankees awaits him next time he trots to the mound.
Mar 31 - 10:13 PM

Andrew Cashner allowed two runs -- one earned -- over 3 1/3 innings Monday in a start against Triple-A Norfolk.

Cashner issued two walks and gave up four hits, though he also struck out six. This was the final spring tuneup for the 31-year-old right-hander, who is scheduled to start the Orioles' second regular-season game on March 31 against the Twins. He was signed to a two-year, $16 million free agent contract in mid-February after posting a 3.40 ERA over 166 2/3 innings for the Rangers last season. His low strikeout rate makes him an unappealing option in standard fantasy leagues.
Mar 26 - 6:37 PM

Andrew Cashner will open the 2018 season as the Orioles' No.2 starter.

Dylan Bundy had previously been announced as the Opening Day starter. He'll be followed by Cashner, with Kevin Gausman and Chris Tillman getting the ball in game three and four, respectively. Alex Cobb likely won't be ready to go until early April because of his late signing. The Orioles haven't announced a fifth starter yet, and because of off days they could go back to Bundy to start game five.
Mar 23 - 10:57 AM

Andrew Cashner held the Mets to one run over five innings in a no-decision Friday.

We're not expecting much from Cashner this year, but he's been sharp so far this spring, allowing one run over nine innings in his two starts.
Mar 16 - 5:39 PM

Andrew Cashner looked sharp in his Orioles' debut on Sunday, firing four shutout innings against the Phillies in Grapefruit League play.

Cashner allowed just one hit and three walks while striking out a pair. The 31-year-old hurler induced six ground ball outs during his terrific outing. Despite the fact that he didn't sign until Mid-February, he should have no difficulty getting ready in time for the start of the regular season.
Mar 11 - 10:32 PM

Andrew Cashner threw three innings in a simulated game on Tuesday.

Cashner has yet to make his Grapefruit League debut, but there's no cause for concern. He's fine. The 31-year-old inked a two-year, $16 million deal with the Orioles last month. He was a poor bet to repeat his 3.40 ERA regardless of where he signed, but it will be especially difficult in Camden Yards and the AL East.
Mar 6 - 1:16 PM

Orioles signed RHP Andrew Cashner to a two-year, $16 million contract.

He can earn up to $5 million more each season in incentives and the deal also includes a $10 million vesting option for 2020. Cashner put up a 3.40 ERA over 166 2/3 innings for the Rangers last season, although that came along with an ugly 86/64 K/BB ratio. It would be a surprise if he has much mixed league value in 2018 while he calls Camden Yards home.
Feb 16 - 8:33 AM

MASN's Roch Kubatko reports that the Orioles have signed free agent starter Andrew Cashner to a two-year, $16 million contract.

SB Nation's Chris Cotillo hears the deal will include a $10 million vesting option for 2020 and $5 million in performance incentives each season. Cashner posted an ugly 86/64 K/BB ratio in 166 2/3 innings last year with the Rangers, but he still managed a 3.40 ERA (138 ERA+) and the Orioles have been in desperate need of decent starting pitching depth all offseason. There's not much to like here from a fantasy perspective, as the 31-year-old right-hander will probably have a difficult time navigating the small parks and big bats of the American League East.
Feb 15 - 2:08 PM

Mark Feinsand of reports the Phillies are in the market to sign a veteran starting pitcher to a short-term contract.

They will likely have to settle for a second-tier starter because the top aces on the market are fielding four- and five-year contract offers. Feinsand speculates the Phillies could be targeting the likes of Andrew Cashner, Chris Tillman, Jaime Garcia or Jason Vargas to provide veteran leadership and stability to the young core of their rotation. They currently have Aaron Nola, Jerad Eickhoff, Vince Velasquez, Nick Pivetta and Ben Lively penciled in as their starting five heading into camp.
Feb 9 - 9:26 PM's Jon Morosi reports that the Blue Jays are "showing continued interest" in Andrew Cashner.

Morosi says that Cashner is among the many hurlers the Jays are considering and that they "hope to land a veteran starter on a one-year deal." Cashner posted a 3.40 ERA over 28 starts for the Rangers last season and is just 31, but his strikeout rate was way down and it wouldn't be a surprise if he had to settle for a one-year contract with the way the market is going. The Orioles are another club that's been connected to Cashner.
Feb 9 - 10:17 AM

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Orioles recently met with free agent right-hander Andrew Cashner.

MASN's Roch Kubatko reported earlier this offseason that Baltimore had interest in Cashner, who posted a 3.40 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 86/64 K/BB ratio across 166 2/3 innings last season for the Rangers. The 31-year-old should be able to land a multi-year contract this offseason after having to settle for a one-year deal last winter.
