Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Rangers are considering extending a qualifying offer to Andrew Cashner.
Cashner had to settle for a one-year, $10 million contract last offseason, but he had a nice year in Texas with a 3.40 ERA and 1.32 WHIP across 166 2/3 innings. That should set him up for a multi-year pact this winter, but he might consider a qualifying offer since a multi-year deal surely wouldn't be for $18.1 million AAV. Cashner turned 31 last month.

Andrew Cashner allowed two earned runs, five hits and two walks with two strikeouts over six innings in a win against the Athletics on Saturday.

Cashner threw just 58 of his 99 pitches for strikes, but it was good enough for the quality start and his 11th win. He wraps up the 2017 campaign with an 11-11 record, 3.40 ERA and 1.32 WHIP across 166 2/3 innings over 28 starts. He isn't a big strikeout pitcher, but he also doesn't allow many homers (just 15 in 2017), and he'll be a valuable back-end fantasy rotation option again in 2018 for his wins.
Oct 1 - 2:21 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed eight runs -- though just one of those was earned -- in a loss to the Astros on Monday.

It was a messy night all around for the Rangers, with Elvis Andrus and Will Middlebrooks both committing fielding errors in an eight-run fourth inning for the visiting Astros. Cashner didn't exactly pitch well, though, yielding six hits and two walks while striking out only two batters over his 3 2/3 frames. The 31-year-old right-hander stands 10-11 with a 3.42 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 84/62 K/BB ratio in 160 2/3 total innings this season. He'll try to carry some momentum into free agency with a strong showing in his final start versus the Athletics.
Sep 26 - 12:02 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed five runs over 4 1/3 innings before being chased in a loss to the Mariners on Thursday.

Cashner didn't have anything working, allowing six hits -- including a two-run homer -- and walking five more in the loss. The upshot is that he hasn't been this bad in a long time; the last time Cashner allowed five runs or more was June 29. The right-hander has posted a strong 3.40 ERA and 1.30 WHIP even including Thursday's start, and he's 9-10 overall through 25 starts. Cashner will have a chance to exact some revenge Wednesday when the two teams meet again, this time in Seattle.
Sep 15 - 2:13 AM

Andrew Cashner worked seven innings of one-run ball Saturday in a no-decision against the Yankees.

Cashner was again sharp, continuing a nine-week stretch of excellence, but the Rangers' offense could only provide him with one run of support in an eventual 3-1 loss for Texas. Cashner owns a 2.49 ERA in 72 1/3 innings (11 starts) since the beginning of July. He'll look to keep it rolling next week against the Mariners.
Sep 9 - 4:14 PM

Andrew Cashner held the Braves to two earned runs over six innings Monday for his ninth win of the season.

Cashner scattered six hits and two walks while striking out five and the Texas offense had its way with opposing starter R.A. Dickey. Cashner has been on an impressive roll since early July, boasting a 2.62 ERA over his last 10 starts covering 65 1/3 innings. The 30-year-old right-hander will try to keep it all working in his next outing at home against the Yankees.
Sep 4 - 11:25 PM

Andrew Cashner allowed just one run in eight innings to beat the Astros 8-1 on Wednesday.

The Astros have scored more runs than any other team in the majors this season but they couldn't get anything going against Cashner tonight. He surrendered a run on a sacrifice fly in the second inning and that was it. He gave up just three base hits and did not issue a free pass. Cashner entered the game with the second-lowest K/9 in the majors (4.51 strikeout per nine innings) but bumped that up a bit by striking out six batters in the contest. He thrives by keeping the ball on the ground and out of the bleachers. His record improves to 8-9 with an excellent 3.30 ERA in 22 starts.
Aug 30 - 11:18 PM

Andrew Cashner allowed three runs -- two earned -- in 5 2/3 innings against the White Sox on Friday.

He yielded only an unearned run through the first five frames but then teed up a two-run bomb to Nicky Delmonico in the sixth. He struck out two batters against four walks and six base hits in the ballgame. He did not earn a decision although his team eventually lost. The journeyman hurler has used a smoke-and-mirrors approach to produce a swell 3.31 ERA despite a terrible 61:48 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 119 2/3 innings. His 4.59 K/9 would be the second worst in the majors (behind Ty Blach of the Giants) if he had enough innings to qualify.
Aug 19 - 12:44 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings in Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Cashner was scratched from his last scheduled outing due to a stiff neck, but showed no ill-effect in Sunday's showdown with the Astros. He struck out four and walked one on the afternoon, with runs scoring courtesy of a solo home run by Jose Altuve in the fourth inning and an RBI single by Carlos Beltran in the seventh. The latter hit gave the Astros a 2-1 lead and put Cashner on the hook for the loss. In 19 starts this season, the veteran right-hander has pitched to a respectable 3.32 ERA and 1.32 WHIP. He has not allowed more than three runs in any of his last six starts and will try to keep up the pace in a home start against the White Sox when he next toes the rubber.
Aug 13 - 6:13 PM

Andrew Cashner has been scratched from his scheduled start Tuesday against the Mets due to a stiff neck.

A.J. Griffin will move up a day to start in Cashner's place. The Rangers don't have a starter listed for Wednesday yet, so at this point it wouldn't appear they're optimistic that Cashner only needs an extra day.
Aug 8 - 3:46 PM

Andrew Cashner gave up just one run in six innings to snare a win versus the Mariners on Wednesday.

He allowed a run in the first inning but hung zeroes the rest of the way. He surrendered six base hits but kept the ball in the yard, didn't walk anyone and struck out four. Cashner is having perhaps the best season of his career despite a minuscule strikeout rate of 4.63 per nine innings. Only Ty Blach of the Giants has a lower strikeout rate in the majors. Cashner is now 7-8 with a 3.36 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in 18 starts.
Aug 3 - 1:22 AM

Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the Rangers are receiving calls about Andrew Cashner, but they're planning to keep him.

Cashner has posted a 3.48 ERA this season, although it's come along with an ugly 51/43 K/BB ratio over 101 innings. The Rangers evidently believe they're better off keeping the righty rather than flipping him for what would figure to be a fairly underwhelming return.
Jul 30 - 10:12 AM

Andrew Cashner spun seven innings of one-run ball in an 8-2 win over the Orioles on Friday.

Cashner limited the Orioles to five hits, with the lone run scoring on a solo homer from Jonathan Schoop in the sixth inning. He fanned a pair and walked to en route to his sixth win of the season. Cashner has compiled a 3.48 ERA through 17 starts this season, though he has an underwhelming 51/43 K/BB ratio over 101 innings. Fantasy upside is limited here.
Jul 29 - 12:39 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed three runs over six innings to earn a win against the Rays on Saturday.

The Rays hung a 3-spot on Cashner in the third inning that looked for a time like it would stand up, but the Rangers were gifted the lead in the seventh inning to get Cashner a backdoor win. The right-hander allowed four hits and three walks on the evening. The win improved him to 5-8 with a 3.64 ERA in 16 starts overall, albeit with a 1.39 WHIP to go with it. Cashner will try to make it two in a row when he faces the Orioles on Friday.
Jul 22 - 10:33 PM

Andrew Cashner took a loss Monday after yielding three earned runs over 6 2/3 innings against the Orioles.

Cashner was cruising until the bottom of the sixth, when the O's plated their first run of the game on a Jonathan Schoop sacrifice fly. Seth Smith then homered off Cashner in the bottom of the seventh to give Baltimore the lead for good. Cashner allowed six hits in all, along with two walks. He is 4-8 on the season with a 3.58 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 43/38 K/BB ratio in 88 innings.
