Andrew Cashner wasn't on his game in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers, surrendering five runs on nine hits over five-plus innings.
Cashner struck out seven and walked two on the evening. Two of the five runs on his line scored thanks to the bullpen as part of a five-run sixth. The Brewers racked up nine hits against the 29-year-old right-hander in the sub-par outing. With the Padres safely out of the playoff picture, Cashner's season numbers will finish out at a 4.34 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 165/66 K/BB ratio over 184 2/3 innings pitched. The 2015 campaign goes down as something of a disappointment given that he posted ERA's of 2.55 and 3.09 in 2014 and 2013, respectively. At least he stayed healthy this time around, making a career-high 31 starts. Oct 1 - 1:18 AM

Andrew Cashner yielded two runs on two hits in six innings in a Wednesday no-decision against the Giants.

As has been the case over the past few weeks, Cashner had difficulty finding the plate. He walked five tonight and has now walked 16 over his last four games. In total, that makes 64 walks in 30 starts. The silver lining is Cashner should be cheaper in spring drafts if you want to bet he returns to career norms while staying healthy again.

Andrew Cashner yielded three runs in seven innings as the Padres beat the Diamondbacks 4-3 on Wednesday.

It was a decent bounceback performance from the underachieving right-hander. Cashner walked nine across 10 2/3 frames over his last two outings and entered tonight 1-5 with a 5.04 ERA over his last nine. He had a 2.87 ERA over 298 1/3 innings the past two seasons but currently sits at 6-15 with a 4.25 ERA. Perhaps the front office will be kind enough to find him some defense this winter.
Sep 17 - 12:36 AM

Andrew Cashner took his 15th loss after giving up five runs in 4 2/3 innings Friday against the Giants.

One of the big surprises of the year is that Cashner has been both healthy and bad for the Padres. He had a 2.87 ERA over 298 1/3 innings between 2013 and '14, but with enough questions about his arm to provide concern about his future. This year, he's had no physical problems to speak of and made 28 starts, yet he has a 4.27 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. Some of it is bad defense, but more of it is that Cashner's home run and walk rates have gone backwards.
Sep 12 - 1:36 AM

Andrew Cashner was mostly effective in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers, yielding two runs on five hits over six innings.

Cashner struck out five and walked four on the afternoon. Andre Ethier lofted a sacrifice fly against him in the first inning and A.J. Ellis worked an RBI single in the sixth, but he otherwise kept the runs to a minimum. The owner of a 4.11 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 139/52 K/BB ratio across 162 innings, Cashner will take a short road trip to San Francisco to do battle with the Giants in his next scheduled start.
Sep 6 - 7:44 PM

Andrew Cashner yielded four runs in five innings, taking a no-decision as the Padres lost to the Rangers on Tuesday.

Cashner served up two runs on a Prince Fielder home run in the first inning, one run on a Shin-Soo Choo double in the third, and one more run in the sixth on a sacrifice fly. On the evening, the right-hander gave up eight hits and struck out four without issuing a walk. Cashner will take a 4.15 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and a 134/48 K/BB ratio over 156 innings into a home start against the Dodgers.
Sep 2 - 1:58 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed just an unearned run over six innings and struck out eight in a victory over the Cardinals on Friday.

Cashner's win was just his fifth in 24 starts this year. He deserves a little better than that, but it's not like he's been any good since April. There's no way someone with his stuff should be sporting a 4.03 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP this deep into the season.
Aug 22 - 2:09 AM

Andrew Cashner posted a solid start in Sunday's loss to the Phillies, yielding three runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Cashner allowed solitary runs in the first and sixth innings, then got himself into trouble in the seventh before exiting stage left with one out. At which point, the bullpen allowed the last run on his line. He holds a ghastly 4-12 record, though his 4.09 ERA and 1.35 WHIP indicate that he deserves at least slightly better than that sad mark. He'll try to gun for a rare victory when he takes to the road against the Rockies in his next start.
Aug 9 - 7:16 PM

Andrew Cashner gave up just two runs over six innings but took the loss against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Cashner was actually fortunate to get out with just two runs allowed, as he yielded eight hits and walked four over his six innings of work. Cashner also struck out five in the outing. Even with the decent showing, the loss dropped Cashner to 4-11 with a 4.08 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. He's got a good shot at getting his fifth win Sunday against the Phillies.
Aug 5 - 1:09 AM

Andrew Cashner struggled mightily at times in a no-decision against the Mets on Thursday afternoon, yielding seven runs (five earned) on six hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Cashner struck out three and walked two in the contest. The Mets scored a solitary run against him in the first inning on a Daniel Murphy sacrifice fly, then brought home three more runs in the fifth, all on a Curtis Granderson home run. They would drive him from the game in the following frame, but he wiggled off the hook and picked up a no-decision, thanks to the combustive properties of the Mets' bullpen. The 28-year-old right-hander holds decent, if unspectacular, numbers overall, including a 4.13 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. Assuming he doesn't move at the trade deadline, Cashner's scheduled to face the Brewers in a road outing next time he toes the rubber.
Jul 30 - 6:34 PM

Andrew Cashner won for just the fourth time this season after limiting the Marlins to one run in seven innings Friday.

Cashner allowed five hits, walked one and struck out five. He's been quite the fantasy disappointment this season, partly because he's been backed up by a weak defense, but a big second-half surge is a possibility if he remains healthy.
Jul 25 - 1:29 AM

Sunday's contest between the Rockies and Padres in San Diego has been postponed due to rain.

The game only went 4 2/3 innings, which is one out shy of making it an official game. It's the first rainout in the history of Petco Park. The game will be made up on September 10. Before the rains came, Andrew Cashner had been dealing, recording eight strikeouts over 4 2/3 while allowing just an unearned run.
Jul 19 - 8:34 PM

Andrew Cashner faltered late, winding up with his 10th loss after giving up four runs in 7 2/3 innings on Wednesday against the Pirates.

Cashner held the Pirates to one run over his first six innings, but relented one on a fielder's choice in the seventh, then put two runners on base after getting two outs in the eighth, both of which scored. Cashner allowed only three hits and two walks overall and struck out five, so it's a tough way to lose. The right-hander is 3-10 with a 4.10 ERA, a 1.34 WHIP, and a 97/34 K/BB ratio in 109 2/3 innings. He'll start again after the All-Star break, at home against the Rockies.
Jul 8 - 10:05 PM

Andrew Cashner pitched well on Friday, limiting the Cardinals to one run on three hits over six innings.

Cashner struck out three and walked three in the contest. Despite the well-pitched outing, he was unable to come away with a decision, as the Padres would not pull ahead for the win until the ninth inning. Cashner is the owner of a 4.06 ERA and 1.39 WHIP and will carry those numbers in to his next start, a road date with the Pirates.
Jul 4 - 12:51 AM

Andrew Cashner won for just the third time this season after holding the Diamondbacks to two runs in seven innings Saturday.

Cashner struck out six and walked none tonight, a big improvement over his 11/13 K/BB ratio in his previous four starts. His 3-9 record is hardly all his fault -- the Padres defense, for one, deserves a lot of blame, but he's been a disappointment, especially of late. He gets the Cardinals next week, making him a mediocre play in mixed leagues.
