Andrew Cashner (oblique) threw 41 pitches in a successful bullpen session on Saturday.

The right-hander isn't expected to require any minor league rehab starts and could be cleared to join the rotation next week against the Indians. Before landing on the DL, he registered a 3.50 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 33/31 K/BB ratio across 69 1/3 innings.

Rangers placed RHP Andrew Cashner on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

The injury isn't believed to be as severe as the oblique strain suffered by teammate Cole Hamels and Cashner should be back after a minimum stint on the DL. It's unclear where the Rangers will turn to fill the vacant rotation spot as they recently designated Dillon Gee for assignment.

Andrew Cashner gave up four runs and 10 hits in four-plus innings Wednesday against the Astros.

Given his awful strikeout rate, Cashner was due for some bad luck in the hit department; he entered this one with 61 hits allowed and 29 strikeouts in 65 1/3 innings. At least all of those hits still only added up to four runs tonight, protecting his 3.50 ERA. He's not someone to own in mixed leagues going forward.

Andrew Cashner pitched seven innings of one-run ball to beat the Nationals on Friday night.

Cashner has been a great surprise in amassing a 3.17 ERA in 11 starts to date, but the Rangers haven't really capitalized, going 5-6 in his starts, and nothing in his peripherals suggest that it's going to continue. He's sporting a 29/29 K/BB ratio in 65 1/3 innings, and while he's getting a fair number of grounders, he's not going to continue to do such a nice job of keeping flyballs in the park. Mixed leaguers should continue to stay away.
Jun 10 - 12:32 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed five earned runs and a season-high 11 hits over six innings in a loss against the Astros on Saturday.

Cashner had allowed 44 hits over his first 52 1/3 innings, while walks have been his biggest bugaboo. He tied a season best with just one free pass allowed, but hung many over the plate and the Astros piled up the hits. While his 2-5 record is quite unattractive he still has a respectable 3.39 ERA and 1.42 WHIP across 10 starts.
Jun 4 - 1:53 AM

Andrew Cashner delivered seven innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Rangers' win over the Blue Jays.

Cashner gave up a run on a sac fly to Jose Bautista in the bottom of the first inning, but the 30-year-old right-hander posted zeros from there. He only struck out two but also yielded just five hits over seven efficient innings. Cashner now holds a shiny 2.92 ERA in 52 1/3 innings this season, though his 23/27 K/BB ratio shows that he really hasn't been that dominant. A tough matchup against the rival Astros is next.
May 28 - 4:04 PM

Andrew Cashner yielded five runs in five innings Tuesday in a loss to the Red Sox.

Cashner walked four and threw two wild pitches. He has a 21/25 K/BB ratio after eight starts, and he's been incredibly lucky to sport a 3.18 ERA to this point.
May 23 - 11:12 PM

Andrew Cashner surrendered two runs in seven innings of a lopsided 9-3 win over the Phillies on Wednesday.

He sailed through six innings unscathed before giving up a two-run homer to Michael Saunders in his seventh and final inning of work. He allowed eight base hits and one walk while fanning only two batters. It was Cashner's first win of the season despite an excellent 2.45 ERA through seven starts. It is unlikely he will continue to rock such a great ERA considering he has more walks than strikeouts on the season. He has just 19 strikeouts and 21 walks in 40 1/3 innings.
May 18 - 12:29 AM

Andrew Cashner gave up just one run over six innings in a no-decision against the Athletics on Friday.

The only run scored on a Matt Joyce homer in the fifth. Cashner struck out a pair and walked one and now holds a 2.43 ERA through six starts overall. However, with 20 walks and 17 strikeouts in 33 1/3 innings, he’s standing on shaky ground.
May 12 - 11:52 PM

Andrew Cashner pitched well in taking a no-decision against the Mariners in Sunday's loss, tossing six innings of shutout ball.

Lovely work from Cashner, who struck out five and walked three over his six innings of work. He threw 94 pitches on the afternoon, 56 of which were strikes. Cashner will carry a 2.30 ERA and 1.43 WHIP into a home start against the A's next time out. We do not see that ERA sticking in the mid-2.00's for too long, but for the time being, he is putting together a nice little season.
May 7 - 7:46 PM

Andrew Cashner yielded three runs -- two earned -- in six-plus innings Monday in a loss to the Astros.

Cashner has exceeded expectations for the Rangers, though he's 0-3 and the team has won just one of his four starts. He has a 2.95 ERA in spite of a 10/16 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings. Something is going to give, and we have a feeling it'll be his ERA.
May 1 - 11:31 PM

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.
Apr 21 - 12:42 AM

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.
