Andrew Cashner yielded two runs and walked six in four-plus innings Tuesday against the Twins.
Cashner allowed 11 men to reach base while getting 12 outs, yet somehow the only ones to score were the two who hit solo homers. After three starts, Cashner has a 2.93 ERA... with an 8/13 K/BB ratio and a 1.70 WHIP in 15 1/3 innings. He's not trustworthy at all. Apr 26 - 1:10 AM

Andrew Cashner threw six scoreless innings but settled for a no-decision Thursday against the Royals.

Cashner allowed just three hits, and his four walks didn't come back to hurt him. It was a strong turn after he allowed three earned runs over 5 1/3 innings in his 2017 debut. He's long been an intriguing talent with underwhelming results, and pitching in Arlington isn't expected to be a huge positive for his numbers. A date with the Twins on Tuesday could be another attractive matchup, though.

Andrew Cashner allowed four runs - three earned - and five hits with three walks over 5 1/3 innings in a loss Saturday in Seattle.

Cashner wasn't terribly efficient in his first appearance of the season, but he limited the damage and gave his team a chance. However, his defense let him down a bit with an Elvis Andrus throwing error in the bottom of the sixth, and the offense did nothing to support him with a good egg against James Paxton.

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

Cashner will make his Rangers debut Saturday against Seattle. He missed his first couple of turns while recovering from right biceps tendinitis. The Rangers cleared a roster spot for Cashner by sending right-hander Nick Martinez to Triple-A Round Rock.
Apr 15 - 5:45 PM

Rangers manager Jeff Bannister confirmed Friday that Andrew Cashner will start on Saturday.

The right-hander looked impressive while throwing five shutout innings in an extended spring training game on Monday and declared himself ready to return afterwards. Given his lengthy injury history, it's difficult for fantasy owners to truly trust him, but there is plenty of talent in that right-arm and he should be owned in deeper mixed leagues.
Apr 14 - 8:05 PM

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said Andrew Cashner is the "front-runner" to start Saturday in Seattle.

Cashner tossed five scoreless innings on 76 pitches in an extended spring training game Monday in Peoria, Arizona and declared himself ready to join the Rangers' rotation afterward. He landed on the 10-day disabled list at the end of spring training with right biceps tendinitis, after signing a one-year, $10 million free agent contract with Texas over the offseason.
Apr 13 - 2:23 PM

Andrew Cashner (biceps) said Tuesday that he feels ready to join the Rangers' rotation.

Cashner worked five scoreless innings on 76 pitches in an extended spring training game Monday in Peoria, Arizona and could be an option to start Saturday in Seattle. "I feel like with where I’m at in the process, I feel like I’m ready," the right-hander told reporters Tuesday. "It’s up to them whether they think I’m ready or if I need another [minor league rehab] start." Cashner opened the 2017 regular season on the disabled list with biceps tendinitis.
Apr 11 - 9:13 PM

Rangers placed RHP Andrew Cashner on the 10-day disabled list with right biceps tendinitis.

The ailment kept Cashner out of action all spring. He's been throwing and could return sometime in April, although that's hardly a given.
Apr 2 - 12:39 PM

Updating an earlier report, Rangers pitching coach Doug Brocail said he's "not real optimistic" Andrew Cashner (biceps) will be back by April 15.

That's the first day the Rangers would need a fifth starter. "I want to make sure that when we get him back, we get him back for the full year," said Brocail. "I don't want any setbacks." Cashner is still working his way back from biceps tendinitis. If Cashner can't go by April 15, the Rangers can turn to either Dillon Gee or Nick Martinez to fill his spot in the starting rotation.
Apr 1 - 11:59 PM

Andrew Cashner (biceps) is targeting April 15 for a return date to the Rangers' rotation.

Pitching coach Doug Brocail said they are going to take things cautiously, so it could be later than that estimate, but a return at some point in April does seem likely for the right-hander.
Apr 1 - 12:47 PM

Andrew Cashner (biceps) is expected to throw three innings on Friday against the Royals.

Cashner, who is making his way back from right biceps tendinitis, will pitch in relief of Cole Hamels. He's going to start the year on the disabled list, but it sounds like he could be ready relatively soon.
Mar 29 - 12:06 PM

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.
