Andrew Cashner spun a two-hit shutout on Monday in a 1-0 win versus the Phillies.
Interestingly, his complete-game shutout came on the same night Anthony Rizzo, for whom he was once traded, hit a walk-off homer. Cashner struck out seven and walked one, needing only 92 pitches, otherwise known as a "Maddux," to finish off the Phillies. The 27-year-old right-hander remains hot, having gone 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in his last five starts coming into tonight. Of his four wins, Cashner has needed to throw complete games to secure two of them. Now 4-7 with a 2.20 ERA, Cashner hosts the Giants on Saturday. Sep 16 - 12:38 AM

Andrew Cashner surrendered two earned runs in seven innings Tuesday in a 6-3 win against the Dodgers.

Cashner mostly danced around nine hits, but he did make a big mistake in serving up Adrian Gonzalez's two-homer in the sixth inning; before tonight, he'd never given up a homer to Los Angeles (46 innings). He struck out two and walked one. The win snapped his winless streak at 11 starts. Cashner kicks off a two-start week with an outing against the Phillies on Monday in Petco.
Sep 10 - 1:30 AM

Andrew Cashner surrendered four runs -- two earned -- in seven innings Wednesday in a 6-1 setback versus the Diamondbacks.

Cashner struck out five and issued one free pass. The 27-year-old right-hander has given up seven runs (five earned) in three starts spanning 18 innings since returning from the disabled list (2.50 ERA). In those contests of skill, he's worked five, six, and seven innings, in order, culminating in tonight's heptagon. All of which means expect him to go eight when Cashner toes the rubber in Los Angeles against the Dodgers next week.
Sep 4 - 12:56 AM

Andrew Cashner, making his second start since being activated from the disabled list, took a no-decision despite allowing just one run over six innings as the Padres needed 12 innings to defeat the Dodgers 3-2 on Friday.

Cashner only struck out one batter in his first start off of the DL, but he managed to fan eight Dodgers on the evening. He yielded only six hits and did not issue a walk as well. The only run scored in the third inning on Hanley Ramirez's RBI double. Over 14 starts, Cashner sports a 2.37 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 68/24 K/BB ratio. He'll look to keep it going when he takes on the D'Backs at home on Wednesday.
Aug 30 - 2:36 AM

Andrew Cashner surrendered two earned runs in five innings Saturday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

It was his first start since June 18 and it did not go overly well. The light-hitting Arizona lineup tallied four singles, a double, a triple, a home run, and two walks against Cashner, and the 27-year-old right-hander managed just one strikeout. He'll look to improve next time out against the Dodgers.

Padres activated RHP Andrew Cashner from the 15-day disabled list.

Cashner will take the mound for the Padres on Saturday against the Diamondbacks in his first start since June 18. It's hard to know exactly what to expect out of the gate from the 27-year-old right-hander after such a long absence due to a shoulder injury, but he has shown in the past that he is very capable of dominating when healthy.
Aug 23 - 4:08 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) will be activated from the disabled list prior to Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks.

The start will be Cashner's first since June 18 as he recovers from right shoulder soreness. His final rehab start was Monday, putting him on regular rest for the start in Arizona. When he's pitched he's been very good, posting a 2.36 ERA through 12 starts before the injury.
Aug 20 - 8:39 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) will rejoin the Padres' rotation this weekend in Arizona.

Cashner made his second and final rehab start on Monday, allowing three runs over five innings. He only got his pitch count up to 63, so he doesn't figure to last terribly long this weekend. Fantasy owners might be wise to hold off on activating him immediately even though he's held a 2.36 ERA over 12 starts when healthy.
Aug 19 - 11:01 PM

Padres manager Bud Black said Tuesday on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM that Andrew Cashner (shoulder) could return from the disabled list as soon as this weekend.

Cashner allowed three runs over five innings Monday with Triple-A El Paso in his third minor league rehab start. He's only been stretched out to 63 pitches so far, so he could be a bit limited if the Padres decide to bring him back this weekend. The 27-year-old has been sidelined since June 23 with right shoulder soreness, but he could provide a nice boost to fantasy owners down the stretch.
Aug 19 - 1:06 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) made his first minor league rehab start on Friday with High-A Lake Elsinore.

Cashner pitched two scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and striking out three in the rehab start. He has been out since June 23 with right shoulder soreness. The Padres hope to have him back in the starting rotation before the end of August. His next rehab outing is scheduled for Wednesday.
Aug 9 - 5:39 PM

Padres manager Bud Black said on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Tuesday that the team is aiming for Andrew Cashner (shoulder) to come off the disabled list around August 22-24.

Cashner, out since June 23 with right shoulder soreness, is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment Friday with Class A Lake Elsinore. The plan calls for him to move up to Double-A from there to make two more starts before coming off the disabled list.
Aug 5 - 11:46 AM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) will make a rehab start in Class-A Lake Elsinore on Friday.

Cashner threw a side session at Petco Park on Saturday and the results were encouraging. Cashner will throw another side session when the Padres travel to Minnesota this week, and assuming there are no setbacks, the Padres plan on having Cashner throw thirty to forty pitches in Class-A Lake Elsinore come Friday.
Aug 2 - 8:18 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) threw a bullpen session at Petco Park on Saturday.

He's scheduled to throw another one when the Padres travel to Minnesota early next week. Assuming he doesn't have a setback, Cashner will make a rehab start for Class-A Lake Elsinore on Friday. If all goes according to plan, Cashner will return to the Padres in a few weeks.
Aug 2 - 6:23 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) threw another successful bullpen session on Wednesday.

Of note, Cashner was able to throw sliders without discomfort, something that couldn't be said earlier this season. A rehab stint is on the horizon, possibly as early as next week. If all goes well, Cashner should be back with the Padres by the middle of August.
Jul 30 - 7:57 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) threw a 31-pitch bullpen session on Sunday afternoon at Turner Field.

"I kinda surprised myself with my command," Cashner said after the workout. "It was coming out good." He threw only fastballs and changeups, and is still a long way from returning to the Padres' starting rotation. But it was a significant step in the right direction. The right-hander has been out since late June with a shoulder injury.
