Andrew Cashner said he's open to a contract extension with the Padres.
"I'd love to stay in San Diego and I've let the front office know that. But I think that's something that's up to them," Cashner told Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Cashner said the only talks between the two sides took place last spring and that "we didn't really get too far into it." Cashner is due for free agency in 2017, so there's certainly not a great deal of urgency to get something done. He'll pitch for $4.05 million this year after the two sides avoided arbitration in January. Feb 7 - 7:01 PM

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro "covets" Andrew Cashner.

The Padres also happen to be after Cole Hamels, so Amaro figures to ask for Cashner as part of any deal for Hamels. Cashner will make $4.05 million this season before hitting free agency after the 2016 campaign, which means he could be gone by the time Philadelphia could potentially contend again. They would figure to ask for Hunter Renfroe or Austin Hedges in addition to Cashner.

Padres and RHP Andrew Cashner avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.05 million contract.

It's a big raise in Cashner's second year of arbitration eligibility, as he earned $2.4 million last season. The right-hander was terrific last season for the Padres when healthy, putting up a 2.55 ERA and 93/29 K/BB ratio over 123 1/3 innings. He's likely to start on Opening Day for San Diego in 2015.

Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner is the Rangers' top target via trade.

The Padres are reportedly shopping Cashner, Ian Kennedy, and Tyson Ross, so there could very well be a match. Cashner is under team control through 2016 and has reportedly told friends that he would like to return to his home state of Texas. One interesting wrinkle in potential talks is that former Rangers assistant general manager A.J. Preller is now the GM in San Diego.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Padres "continue to listen" on trade inquiries involving Andrew Cashner, Ian Kennedy, and Tyson Ross.

And why wouldn't they? This might not mean much, as teams should always be willing to listen for ways to improve their club. That's certainly the case for the Padres, who are likely not a move or two away from contention. For what it's worth, Rosenthal pegs the Braves, Indians, Diamondbacks, Royals, Rangers and Cubs as the teams who have a need and could match up best with the Padres.

Andrew Cashner surrendered six earned runs in five innings Thursday in a 9-8 loss against the Giants.

Cashner had gone 3-0 with a 1.50 ERA in his last three starts, having worked at least seven innings in each. This wasn't the way he wanted to go into the winter, but Cashner has a lot to be happy about. He didn't match last year's innings total (118 1/3 vs. 175), but easily set a new career best with a 2.21 ERA which was coupled with a 1.10 WHIP and 89/28 K/BB rate. The last challenge is a full season of health.

Andrew Cashner flirted with a second consecutive shutout, but settled for allowing two runs in eight-plus innings in Saturday's win over the Giants.

Cashner brought the shutout into the ninth, but was greeted with a Hunter Pence solo home run to lead off the inning. He allowed a single to Joe Panik next before making his exit. Panik later scored against reliever Kevin Quackenbush. Overall, Cashner allowed just four hits and a walk while striking out seven. The right-hander has yet to allow more than two runs since returning from the disabled list, and now owns a 2.21 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and an 89/29 K/BB ratio. He'll face the Giants again to wrap up his season, on Thursday in San Francisco.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
