Andrew Cashner allowed three runs -- two earned -- in 5 2/3 innings against the White Sox on Friday.
He yielded only an unearned run through the first five frames but then teed up a two-run bomb to Nicky Delmonico in the sixth. He struck out two batters against four walks and six base hits in the ballgame. He did not earn a decision although his team eventually lost. The journeyman hurler has used a smoke-and-mirrors approach to produce a swell 3.31 ERA despite a terrible 61:48 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 119 2/3 innings. His 4.59 K/9 would be the second worst in the majors (behind Ty Blach of the Giants) if he had enough innings to qualify. Aug 19 - 12:44 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Cashner was scratched from his last scheduled outing due to a stiff neck, but showed no ill-effect in Sunday's showdown with the Astros. He struck out four and walked one on the afternoon, with runs scoring courtesy of a solo home run by Jose Altuve in the fourth inning and an RBI single by Carlos Beltran in the seventh. The latter hit gave the Astros a 2-1 lead and put Cashner on the hook for the loss. In 19 starts this season, the veteran right-hander has pitched to a respectable 3.32 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. He has not allowed more than three runs in any of his last six starts and will try to keep up the pace in a home start against the White Sox when he next toes the rubber.

Andrew Cashner has been scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday against the Mets due to a stiff neck.

A.J. Griffin will move up a day to start in Cashner's place. The Rangers don't have a starter listed for Wednesday yet, so at this point it wouldn't appear they're optimistic that Cashner only needs an extra day.
Aug 8 - 3:46 PM

Andrew Cashner gave up just one run in six innings to snare a win versus the Mariners on Wednesday.

He allowed a run in the first inning but hung zeroes the rest of the way. He surrendered six base hits but kept the ball in the yard, didn't walk anyone and struck out four. Cashner is having perhaps the best season of his career despite a minuscule strikeout rate of 4.63 per nine innings. Only Ty Blach of the Giants has a lower strikeout rate in the majors. Cashner is now 7-8 with a 3.36 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 18 starts.
Aug 3 - 1:22 AM

Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the Rangers are receiving calls about Andrew Cashner, but they're planning to keep him.

Cashner has posted a 3.48 ERA this season, although it's come along with an ugly 51/43 K/BB ratio over 101 innings. The Rangers evidently believe they're better off keeping the righty rather than flipping him for what would figure to be a fairly underwhelming return.
Jul 30 - 10:12 AM

Andrew Cashner spun seven innings of one-run ball in an 8-2 win over the Orioles on Friday.

Cashner limited the Orioles to five hits, with the lone run scoring on a solo homer from Jonathan Schoop in the sixth inning. He fanned a pair and walked to en route to his sixth win of the season. Cashner has compiled a 3.48 ERA through 17 starts this season, though he has an underwhelming 51/43 K/BB ratio over 101 innings. Fantasy upside is limited here.
Jul 29 - 12:39 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed three runs over six innings to earn a win against the Rays on Saturday.

The Rays hung a 3-spot on Cashner in the third inning that looked for a time like it would stand up, but the Rangers were gifted the lead in the seventh inning to get Cashner a backdoor win. The right-hander allowed four hits and three walks on the evening. The win improved him to 5-8 with a 3.64 ERA in 16 starts overall, albeit with a 1.39 WHIP to go with it. Cashner will try to make it two in a row when he faces the Orioles on Friday.
Jul 22 - 10:33 PM

Andrew Cashner took a loss Monday after yielding three earned runs over 6 2/3 innings against the Orioles.

Cashner was cruising until the bottom of the sixth, when the O's plated their first run of the game on a Jonathan Schoop sacrifice fly. Seth Smith then homered off Cashner in the bottom of the seventh to give Baltimore the lead for good. Cashner allowed six hits in all, along with two walks. He is 4-8 on the season with a 3.58 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 43/38 K/BB ratio in 88 innings.
Jul 17 - 10:11 PM

Andrew Cashner allowed two runs -- both unearned -- in seven innings to beat the Red Sox 8-2 on Wednesday.

He struck out four batters and gave up just three hits and three walks in the ballgame. Both runs came on a home run by Xander Bogaerts in the sixth inning, and were unearned thanks to an error by first baseman Pete Kozma. Cashner has a scary strikeout-to-walk but has somehow turned in a solid 3.54 ERA. He's given up only six home runs in 14 starts.
Jul 6 - 2:04 AM

X-rays turned up negative on Andrew Cashner's right forearm.

Cashner was struck on the throwing arm by a broken bat during his start Thursday afternoon in Cleveland, but he escaped that frightening moment with a minor contusion. He should be able to take his next turn in the Rangers' rotation. Cashner allowed five earned runs over five innings Thursday against the Indians, falling to 3-7 on the year.
Jun 29 - 2:53 PM

Andrew Cashner will undergo precautionary X-rays on his right forearm.

Cashner was struck by a shard of Edwin Encarnacion's broken bat in the sixth inning of his start Thursday afternoon against the Indians. Cashner stayed in the game for another batter before getting lifted for Nick Martinez. There should be an update soon from Progressive Field.
Jun 29 - 2:36 PM

Rangers activated RHP Andrew Cashner from the 10-day disabled list.

Cashner will return to the Rangers' rotation Thursday afternoon against the Indians after missing a little under two weeks with a left oblique strain. The 30-year-old right-hander has registered a so-so 3.50 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 33/31 K/BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings (12 starts) this season for Texas.
Jun 29 - 9:21 AM

Andrew Cashner (oblique) will rejoin the Rangers' rotation Thursday in Cleveland.

The club will then start Austin Bibens-Dirkx or Nick Martinez on Friday. Cashner will have missed two weeks of action with a strained left oblique. He'll return to a 3.50 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 33/31 K/BB ratio across 69 1/3 innings.
Jun 27 - 5:01 PM

Andrew Cashner (oblique) threw 41 pitches in a successful bullpen session on Saturday.

The right-hander isn't expected to require any minor league rehab starts and could be cleared to join the rotation next week against the Indians. Before landing on the DL, he registered a 3.50 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 33/31 K/BB ratio across 69 1/3 innings.
Jun 24 - 12:00 PM

Rangers placed RHP Andrew Cashner on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

The injury isn't believed to be as severe as the oblique strain suffered by teammate Cole Hamels and Cashner should be back after a minimum stint on the DL. It's unclear where the Rangers will turn to fill the vacant rotation spot as they recently designated Dillon Gee for assignment.
