Padres | Andrew Cashner activated from 15-day DL

Tue, 24 May 2016 23:16:35 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner was activated from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, May 24, and started that evening's game against the San Francisco Giants. He allowed three runs on four hits in six innings of work. RP Kevin Quackenbush was demoted to Class AAA El Paso in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Cashner's stay on the DL didn't fundamentally change how he has been pitching this season. His control remains spotty, and he still hasn't worked more than six innings in a start. Until something changes for the better, Cashner isn't worth starting in most fantasy leagues.

Padres | Andrew Cashner not limited

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:59:38 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (hamstring) will not be on a pitch count in his first start off the disabled list against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, May 24. "No limitations whatsoever," manager Andy Green said of Cashner, who owns a 4.93 ERA in seven starts this season. "No pitch-count limitations, he feels great, he's been throwing some extended bullpens. He's ready to go."

Fantasy Tip: Cashner has been shaky (3.6 BB/9) in his seven starts this year, and he also has an ugly 1.47 WHIP. He's a contrarian player in daily games in a pitcher's park Tuesday night. In standard leagues, avoiding Cashner in his first start off the DL is wise. In most cases in mixed leagues, owners should take a wait-and-see approach before adding Cashner off the waiver wire.

Padres | Andrew Cashner due back Tuesday

Fri, 20 May 2016 16:22:24 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (hamstring) is set to come off the disabled list and start at the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner has left a lot to be desired for his fantasy owners, and he's probably on the waiver wire in a lot of mixed leagues. He sports a 4.93 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and an ugly 3.6 walks per nine innings. He must improve his command if he's to help owners in mixed leagues, and you'll want to take a wait-and-see approach before running with Cashner again. Christian Friedrich is likely to be booted from the rotation to make room for Cashner.

Padres | Andrew Cashner lands on DL

Fri, 13 May 2016 14:47:08 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain Friday, May 13, according to manager Andy Green. The DL stint is retroactive to May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Because of Cashner's poor numbers (4.93 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, 3.6 BB/9), you'll probably want to cut bait in favor of more productive and healthy starting pitching options in most mixed leagues. Christian Friedrich is making a spot start against the Milwaukee Brewers tonight and could stick in the rotation. He's not very attractive outside of the deepest NL-only leagues, though. Carlos Villanueva may be another option to move from the bullpen to the rotation. Stay tuned.

Padres | Andrew Cashner will test mobility

Thu, 12 May 2016 15:31:54 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (hamstrings) will test his mobility Thursday, May 12, but he is still in question to start against the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, May 14.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner has a 4.93 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP through seven starts with an unimpressive 7.3 K/9. He is a risky start in all fantasy formats when healthy, so it is best to avoid Cashner until he shows some success on the hill. He shouldn't be owned outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, either. Stay tuned for updates.

Padres | Andrew Cashner may miss start

Wed, 11 May 2016 09:22:54 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (hamstrings) may miss his next start due to cramps in both of his hamstrings. The team is in wait-and-see mode.

Fantasy Tip: Jeremy Guthrie could be a candidate to enter the rotation if Cashner is forced to miss time. Guthrie has an 8.40 ERA at Class AAA El Paso, but most of the staff's ERAs are laughable. Guthrie doesn't have a ton of upside, but the cavernous Petco Park could benefit him enough to be an NL-only option.

Padres | Andrew Cashner to make next start

Mon, 09 May 2016 15:34:20 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (hamstring) is feeling "great" and will make his next start after some hamstring cramping Sunday, May 8, according to manager Andy Green.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner has had a rough season so far with a 2-3 record, 4.93 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 7.3 K's per nine innings. His fantasy owners expected better, and until he starts walking less (3.6 BB/9), he'll likely continue to be inconsistent. Don't bother right now in shallow mixed leagues. You'll want to be careful deploying him elsewhere in his next start.

Mets | David Wright, Neil Walker take a seat

Sun, 08 May 2016 12:26:41 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright and 2B Neil Walker (shin) are not in the lineup on Sunday, May 08, against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner. SS Asdrubal Cabrera will move up into Wright's usual second spot in the order, while 3B Eric Campbell will take a turn at third base and bat eighth. INF Wilmer Flores draws the start in place of Walker and hit sixth.

Fantasy Tip: It's a rest day for Wright, but Walker is sitting out as a result of taking a few foul balls off of his shin on Saturday. Campbell and Flores are both batting below .200 and should be avoided in DFS as well as regular fantasy formats.

Padres | Andrew Cashner struggles Wednesday

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 17:30:23 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner (1-2) allowed six runs (three earned) on four hits over 2 2/3 innings in a loss to the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, April 27, with four walks and two strikeouts. It was his shortest outing since July 5, 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner continues to be a pitcher who is difficult to rely on in daily fantasy contests. He has not pitched beyond the sixth inning in any of his five outings this season and has only registered two quality starts. Cashner is scheduled to make his next start versus the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, May 3.

Padres | Andrew Cashner earns first win

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 06:09:34 -0700

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner allowed one run on three hits in six innings against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, April 22, to pick up his first win of the season. He struck out four batters and walked one during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Cashner has allowed only two runs in his last two starts but has not pitched more than six innings in any of his four starts. He is scheduled to face the San Francisco Giants in his next start and could be a starting option in some leagues.
