Rangers signed RHP Andrew Cashner to a one-year, $10 million contract.
The deal was first reported last Friday and has now become official. Cashner is coming off a season where he posted a 5.25 ERA over 132 innings for the Padres and Marlins. His results have never caught up with his stuff, and it's hard to see a big bounce-back season coming with a move to the American League. That said, there are worse one-year gambles to take.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers are close to signing Andrew Cashner.

MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan says it's a one-year, $10 million contract. Cashner is from Texas and the Rangers have been connected to him before, so this pairing doesn't come as a surprise. The hard-throwing righty has flashed promise but ultimately been a disappointment to this point, as he's coming off a year that saw him post a 5.25 ERA across 132 innings. A move to the American League probably doesn't bode well for a potential bounce-back season from Cashner.

Andrew Cashner struggled in a no-decision against the Nationals on Friday, surrendering four runs on seven hits over four innings.

The veteran right-hander walked two and punched out three in the ballgame. After being staked to an early 4-0 lead, Cashner gave it all back in the fourth inning, including a pair of homers to Anthony Rendon and Stephen Drew. He finishes a highly-disappointing 2016 season with a 5-11 record, 5.25 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 112/60 K/BB ratio across 132 innings.

Andrew Cashner tossed five innings of one-run ball Friday against the Braves.

Cashner ran into trouble in the second and third, but he managed to minimize the damage. All told, he gave up three hits while walking three and striking out six. The impending free agent now owns a 5.73 ERA over 10 starts and one relief appearance with Miami. He’ll square off against the Mets next week in his final start of the year.

Andrew Cashner coughed up seven runs over just two innings but managed to escape with a no-decision in Monday's loss to the Braves.

He gave up six hits, walked two and didn't record a strikeout before being pulled after letting the first five batters reach in the third inning. Cashner has basically alternated good starts with awful ones since joining the Marlins, which pretty much sums up his career. He'll face the Phillies on the road on Sunday.

Andrew Cashner was dominant over 5 1/3 innings against the Phillies on Wednesday, striking out nine hitters without allowing a run as the Marlins recorded a 6-0 victory.

He gave up four harmless hits and issued two free passes. He was facing a weak, punchless Phillies lineup that is last in the majors in scoring this year and he didn't have any problem mowing right through it. Cashner has not done his fantasy owners many favors this year but he came up big tonight at a critical time with many fantasy leagues heading into the playoffs. He lowered his ERA from 5.00 to 4.77 while earning his fifth win in 23 starts. Cashner lines up for another favorable matchup in his next turn against the Braves on Tuesday.

Andrew Cashner was knocked around in Friday's loss to the Indians, surrendering six runs on six hits over his five frames.

The hard-throwing right-hander struck out six, but also struggled badly with his command and issued six walks on the night. The Indians jumped on him early in this one, pushing three runs across in the opening inning. It has been a very rough season for Cashner who now sits at 4-11 with a 5.00 ERA and 1.48 WHIP. He'll try to right the ship on Wednesday against the Phillies.

Andrew Cashner was scratched from Sunday's start against the Padres due to a blister on his finger.

Cashner pitched well despite dealing with the blister during his most recent start and now he'll miss a matchup against his former team. Justin Nicolino will start in his place.

Andrew Cashner pitched well but took a loss Tuesday, spinning six frames of one-run ball against the Royals.

Cashner matched Yordano Ventura zero for zero until Lorenzo Cain plated a run with a single in the sixth inning, and that wound up being the only run the Royals needed. The big right-hander has pitched well in three of five starts since joining the Marlins but has also mixed in a couple clunkers. He'll get his former team, the Padres, this weekend.

Andrew Cashner held the Reds to one run on five hits but only lasted five innings and took a no-decision on Wednesday.

He struck out just one hitter and served up four free passes in the short outing. His ERA improves to a mediocre 4.92 in 100 2/3 innings. He no longer wields the blistering heat he threw a few years ago. He will try to improve upon his 4-9 record when he takes on the Royals in an inter-league contest on Tuesday.

Andrew Cashner took the loss Friday after giving up four runs over five innings against the White Sox.

Things could have been worse, but Cashner was able to wiggle out of a second-inning jam and complete five innings. He gave up nine hits and his control was lacking all night, as he walked five batters while throwing 58 out of 105 pitches for strikes. Cashner gave up the winning hit in extra innings on Monday and has allowed 12 runs over his last two starts, so this isn’t exactly what the Marlins had in mind when they acquired him from the Padres last month. He’ll bring a 5.08 ERA into a start against the Reds next week.

Andrew Cashner was pounded for seven runs in five innings in a loss to the Rockies on Saturday.

He gave up a home run to the first batter of the game and allowed another run in the second inning. He settled down for a few innings after that but then came the sixth inning. The Rockies scored seven times in that frame -- five of those were charged to Cashner. This debacle in Coors Field leaves him with a 4-8 record and 4.98 ERA. He draws an interleague game against the White Sox at home on Friday.

Andrew Cashner pitched well in his Marlins debut on Sunday, firing six innings of two-run ball while taking a no-decision in a 5-4 win over the Cardinals.

The Padres traded Cashner to the Marlins along with Colin Rea and Tayron Guerrero on Friday. Against the Cardinals, he scattered four hits and struck out two without walking a batter. The first run to come home against him came on a fielding error by Chris Johnson in the second. Greg Garcia would crack a solo home run an inning later to polish off the scoring on Cashner's line. In 16 starts with the Padres, the 29-year-old right-hander held a mediocre 4.76 ERA. A silver lining of sorts -- since being obliterated by the Dodgers for eight runs on July 8, he has allowed just seven runs on 15 hits in four starts (23 2/3 innings). A road showdown with the Rockies shows next on his schedule.

Andrew Cashner will make his Marlins debut on Sunday against the Cardinals.

Colin Rea will take the ball on Saturday, as both new acquisitions will pitch on regular rest. Cashner and Rea were acquired from the Padres on Friday in a seven-player trade.

Marlins acquired RHPs Andrew Cashner, Colin Rea, Tayron Guerrero and cash considerations from the Padres in exchange for RHPs Jarred Cosart, Carter Capps and Luis Castillo and 1B Josh Naylor.

The previously reported deal has now become official. Cashner holds a 4.76 ERA over 16 starts this season, but he's pitched well in his last three outings and the Marlins are hopeful that he can stay hot down the stretch. He's slated for free agency this winter.
