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.

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.
Apr 17 - 2:09 AM

Andrew Cashner yielded three runs over five-plus innings against the Phillies on Monday.

Cashner left with the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth inning. The tying run ended up scoring, which cost him the chance at the victory. Cashner fanned five and walked one. The stuff remains tantalizing and this was an improvement over his season debut, but he remains a frustrating fantasy commodity. He’ll get the Rockies next at home.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that offseason trade talks between the Padres and Rangers revolved around Andrew Cashner, Derek Norris and Jurickson Profar, "but concerns about Cashner's arm scuttled that."

This is interesting on multiple fronts, most notably that the Rangers weren't convinced Cashner was healthy and also that they were willing to deal the oft-injured, former No. 1 overall prospect Profar. Perhaps the two clubs could rekindle something revolving around Norris with Robinson Chirinos suffering a fractured forearm on Saturday.
Apr 10 - 8:34 AM

Andrew Cashner was tagged for five runs in four innings by the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Cashner gave up six hits, one of them a homer to opposing starter Kenta Maeda. He had a nice spring for the most part, though he did struggle last week against the Angels. His upside doesn't appear to be what it was a year or two ago. Still, we wouldn't completely rule him out as a mixed-league asset.
Apr 7 - 12:28 AM

Andrew Cashner surrendered six earned runs in 3 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Angels.

Cashner was having a nice spring until the first inning today. Johnny Giavotella hit a leadoff single, Daniel Nava drew a walk, and then Mike Trout smacked an RBI single before Cashner secured his first out. C.J. Cron then drew another walk and Andrelton Simmons drove him in with a single to right. It didn't get much better from there. Cashner will try for better results next time out in what should be his final spring start.

Andrew Cashner held the Rangers to two runs over six innings Tuesday in a Cactus League game.

Cashner gave up seven hits, but five of them were singles and the other two were doubles. He struck out four and didn't issue a walk. The right-hander is sitting on a 2.40 ERA through 15 spring innings.
Mar 22 - 8:08 PM

Andrew Cashner wasn’t at his best Thursday in a loss to the Giants, allowing five runs (two earned), four hits and two walks over four innings of work.

Jarrett Parker beat Cashner for a two-run homer in the first inning. Cashner put a zero on the board in the next frame but the Giants struck for three more runs in the third thanks in part to an error by third baseman Yangervis Solarte. Cashner hadn’t allowed a run all spring prior to Thursday, so we’ll cut him some slack for having a tough day against a good team.
Mar 18 - 1:14 AM

Andrew Cashner registered five strikeouts without allowing a hit over three innings, and the Padres topped the Indians 6-3 on Saturday.

A lone walk kept it from being a perfect outing for the 29-year-old. Cashner had a disappointing 4.34 ERA over 31 starts in 2015, but he's been spotless through two Cactus League starts thus far. Betting on a career year at this stage in the game could be optimistic, but there are worse bets to make.
Mar 12 - 9:11 PM

Andrew Cashner tossed two scoreless innings in Monday's Cactus League victory over the Brewers.

The big right-hander surrendered three hits, walked one and struck out one in a nice first spring outing. Cashner has flashed big-time ability but overall been very inconsistent to this point in his big league career. He'll be trying to put it all together in 2016 in what will be his walk year.
Mar 7 - 7:35 PM

Andrew Cashner reported to Padres camp up at 240 pounds, up 20 pounds from where he finished the 2015 season.

Cashner made it a point to bulk up over the winter, feeling that the added size and strength would help him sustain through 200 innings. The 29-year-old hurler threw a career-high 184 2/3 innings in 2015, compiling a 4.34 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 165/66 K/BB ratio.

Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports that the Orioles have trade interest in Andrew Cashner.

The O's are one of the clubs that have been connected to Yovani Gallardo, who is arguably the best free agent pitcher still on the market. However, Kubatko hears that Baltimore is now "much more reluctant" to surrender the No. 14 overall pick to sign Gallardo and instead is more likely to acquire rotation help via the trade route. Cashner posted a disappointing 4.34 ERA in 2015 but did manage to make 30 starts for the first time in his big league career. He'll earn $7.15 million in 2016 before hitting free agency next winter.

Padres and RHP Andrew Cashner avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $7.15 million contract.

It's $115,000 more than he was projected to make by MLBTradeRumors.com in his final year of arbitration eligibility. Cashner put up a disappointing 4.34 ERA in 2015, although the injury-prone right-hander did make 30 starts for the first time in his big league career. He'll shoot for a big season in his walk year.
Jan 15 - 12:23 PM

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Padres are "getting plenty of action on their young pitchers."

Clubs that had been talking to the Braves about Shelby Miller now could turn to the Padres' arms. Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross would qualify as "young pitchers" for San Diego, although they're known to be shopping James Shields, as well. Ross reportedly would only be moved for a "monster" return.
