Andrew Cashner was charged with four runs -- three earned -- across 6 1/3 frames in Monday's loss to the Mariners.
Cashner was cruising along through five innings, but the M's got to him with three hits and four runs in the sixth, which included a two-run homer by Kyle Seager that put Seattle up for good. The hard-throwing righty allowed exactly three earned runs in each of his four starts in May, and he sports a disappointing 32/19 K/BB over 47 frames on the year. Cashner gets the Rockies at home this weekend. May 30 - 7:32 PM

Andrew Cashner pitched respectably in his return from the 15-day disabled list, yielding three runs on four hits over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

Cashner, who was shelved with a right hamstring strain in early May, struck out one and walked four in his return to the mound. The Giants would score two of their three runs against the 29-year-old right-hander in the sixth inning, with Buster Posey (RBI double) and Brandon Crawford (RBI single) striking to snap a 1-1 tie. Prior to hitting the disabled list, Cashner held a 4.93 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 28/14 K/BB ratio over 34 2/3 innings. Until he can improve on those bloated numbers, he does not make for an appealing fantasy option outside of the deepest of NL-only formats. He will take to the road for a date with the Mariners next time he toes the rubber.

Padres activated RHP Andrew Cashner from the 15-day disabled list.

Cashner will start for the Padres on Tuesday night against the Angels after missing the last three weeks with a strained right hamstring. The right-hander registered an underwhelming 4.93 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 28/14 K/BB ratio over his first 34 2/3 innings this season.
May 24 - 5:10 PM

The Padres will activate Andrew Cashner (hamstring) from the disabled list on Tuesday.

He'll return against the Giants Tuesday with James Shields following him on Wednesday. A strained hamstring caused Cashner to miss a couple turns in the starting rotation but it was never anything serious. So far, the right-hander has produced an underwhelming 4.93 ERA in 34 2/3 innings for the Friars this season.
May 21 - 9:26 PM

Andrew Cashner (hamstring) believes he'll be ready to come off the disabled list as soon as he's eligible.

Cashner threw a side session Friday in hopes of starting Saturday's game against Milwaukee but the Padres played it safe by putting him on the disabled list. He's eligible to come off the DL May 24 versus San Francisco. It probably won't happen on that exact day, but Cashner should be activated later this month.
May 14 - 9:52 PM

Padres placed RHP Andrew Cashner on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 9, with a strained right hamstring.

He's actually dealing with tightness in both hamstrings. Cashner tested out his hamstrings with some running Friday and he just hasn't recovered as quickly as hoped. He shouldn't need too much time to recover but will miss at least a couple starts. The Padres could go with a bullpen game on Saturday in Milwaukee.
May 13 - 6:01 PM

Andrew Cashner (hamstrings) is questionable to start on Saturday versus the Brewers.

Cashner is dealing with tightness in both hamstrings. He was originally slated for Friday, but the Padres will call up Christian Friedrich in order to buy an extra day for Cashner. The righty threw on flat ground and tested his mobility on Thursday. "He's improving," manager Andy Green said. "We just have to continue to play it by ear."
May 13 - 10:45 AM

The Padres will announce Friday's starter after Thursday's game against the Brewers.

Friday is Andrew Cashner's turn in the rotation but his status is still up in the air after leaving his last start with hamstring cramps. He went out on the field before Thursday's game to test his mobility. Cashner hasn't pitched especially well this year. He's logged a 2-3 record with a mediocre 4.93 ERA over seven starts.
May 12 - 7:12 PM

Andrew Cashner (hamstring) is questionable for his next turn in the Padres' rotation.

It's supposed to come this weekend in Milwaukee. Cashner left his start Sunday against the Mets with cramping in his right hamstring and he was still feeling some symptoms on Wednesday morning. This doesn't sound like a disabled list situation, but the right-hander might not pitch again until sometime next week.
May 11 - 12:05 PM

Andrew Cashner (hamstring) expects to make his next start.

Cashner was forced to exit Sunday's start against the Mets after suffering a right hamstring cramp while running the bases. He said Monday that he feels "great," so it doesn't sounds like a big deal. The 29-year-old has a 4.93 ERA and 28/14 K/BB ratio over 34 2/3 innings this season.
May 9 - 6:45 PM

Andrew Cashner was forced to leave Sunday's start against the Mets due to a right hamstring cramp.

He suffered the injury while running the bases and sliding into home plate. The Padres are calling his early exit purely precautionary, so at this point it seems unlikely that he would miss his next scheduled start.
May 8 - 7:43 PM

Andrew Cashner managed a quality start in Tuesday's win over the Rockies, yielding three runs on five hits over six innings.

Cashner was not brilliant by any stretch of the imagination, but he persevered long enough for the Padre bats to overcome an early 3-0 deficit. All three of those runs scored in the first two innings (two in the first, one in the second). For the evening as a whole, the 29-year-old right-hander struck out six and walked three. He will carry a 4.85 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 27/13 K/BB ratio (27 innings) into his next outing, a home date with the Mets.
May 4 - 1:03 AM

Andrew Cashner pitched poorly in Wednesday's 13-9 loss to the Giants, surrendering six runs (three earned) on four hits over 2 2/3 innings.

Cashner struck out just two while walking four in what was generally a sloppy start to watch. The Giants wasted little time in putting up runs on Cashner's line, turning in a three-spot in the first inning and another three-spot in the third. The latter would knock Cashner out of the contest. With a 4.94 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 21/10 K/BB ratio across five starts (21 innings), he's made for an inconsistent fantasy option. The 29-year-old right-hander will play host to the Rockies in his next scheduled start.
Apr 27 - 7:08 PM

Andrew Cashner notched his first win after allowing one run in six innings Friday against the Cardinals.

Randal Grichuk homered off him in the fourth, but that was the only damage the Cardinals did all night. Cashner has a 4.29 ERA after four starts. He doesn't look like much of a mixed-league option at the moment.
Apr 23 - 1:25 AM

Andrew Cashner put in a quality shift on Saturday versus the Diamondbacks, throwing six one-run innings and striking out five.

Cashner watched his bullpen cough up his lead, though, which saddled him with an unsatisfying no-decision. Still, it was a much-needed quality start following a pair of shorter outings against the Phillies and Dodgers to begin the year. He lowered his early-season ERA to 5.40 and will get another course of home-cookin’ against the St. Louis Cardinals in his next scheduled start.
