Andrew Cashner will need three months of recovery time after requiring surgery to repair a lacerated tendon in his right thumb.

Another injury for this kid. Cashner can light it up when healthy, but has proved to be very injury prone. He's the definition of high-risk/high-reward. He has the potential to be one of the best pitchers in the league, but has really struggled to stay healthy. It seems doubtful that his body will ever hold up for a full season.

I still think he is worth the risk late in drafts. Since the injury ended his season last year there might not be much hype on him and his ADP might slip. Any padre starter with above average K numbers is worth the risk.

Hunting accident? Maybe MLB teams should put clauses in player contracts, lol. Didn't Clint Barmes have an accident hunting with Todd Helton in the past? I believe Robin Yount shot Dale Svuem by accident on the weekend? These guys not wearing their orange vests??

I've said a few times that the Cubs stole Rizzo from the Padres. I stand by that. Can't believe the Friers gave up on him so fast.

Oh my friends, my friends, forgive me

That I live and you are gone.

There's a grief that can't be spoken.

There's a pain goes on and on.

always an intriguing arm and pitches half his games in petco, but can't seem to catch a break. he could be a good player to stash on the DL if no one drafts him.



Andrew Cashner (thumb) is "set to start the season on the disabled list," according to MLB.com's Corey Brock.

Cashner needed emergency surgery last month on his right thumb after suffering a lacerated tendon during a hunting accident. There was some initial hope that he would be able to recover in time for the opening of the 2013 regular season, but it's not going to happen. The right-hander will aim to debut by the end of April.




I will never draft Francisco Liriano ever again.

what do you expect? the guy throws 100 mph every single time and doesnt have many secondary pitches. Of course there is going to be problems with his arm throughout the years. However if he wants to be a starting pitcher in this league hell have to go down to about 94 mph to stretch his outings out and gain 2 other plus pitches

Getting excited- got him for a few bucks late in my auction where I needed Ks/Pitching.


Andrew Cashner yielded one run over 2 1/3 innings Friday against the Dodgers.

Advice: Cashner gave up three hits and a walk while striking out two. He threw 23 out of 35 pitches for strikes and topped out at 97 mph range with his fastball. While he entered camp as a question mark following surgery on his right thumb, there's still enough time for him to get stretched out for the start of the season. If he can stay healthy, there's big upside in fantasy leagues.

Was very high on him last year when he moved into the rotation. People are still sleeping on him and I am hoping to grab Cashner as my #5.

Anyone that throws 97 and finds a way into a rotation is fantasy worthy. If Cashner stays healthy, he will definitely be up there in strike outs.

I beat a couple of my league mates last year with Cashner in my lineup (h2h), I hope they forget.

I think that this is the year that Cashner shakes the injury bug and has a big year. His arm doesnt have a lot of mileage on it and he seems ready to go based on what ive heard and read.

Good article/interview here:http://sandiego.padr...book_sd&c_id=sd

If he can harness the control a bit and throw his off-speed pitches for strikes he's gonna be a stud. Any thoughts or predictions on his upcoming 2013 season?

I just drafted this guy in both my leagues after owning him everywhere last year too. This thumb injury is far less scary than any elbow or shoulder problems, and it seems to fall in the category of "freak injuries" (see Ellsbury, Jacoby). I have high hopes for him, especially in light of his improved control and command of the strike zone. While I'm optimistic, I view him with the upside of a SP3 for this year, and more likely SP4 or SP5 material as he learns to harness his gifts.

More positive news....


Andrew Cashner struck out four while allowing one run over 2 2/3 innings against the Giants Wednesday.
He gave up three hits and walked one. Cashner now has a 3.00 ERA and has struck out over a batter per inning this spring, but he's tallied only six innings. Despite the low inning total, the right-hander remains confident that he'll be ready to roll at the start of the season. He has ample fantasy upside if he can stay healthy.

With this guy you keep your fingers crossed that he can make it 150+ innings because his stuff is electric. Not many can hit his fastball.

I would be happy with 150 innings from him this year, and I don't expect him to get that much more because he still is a recently converted from a reliever. He can still get around 140 to 150 ks in those innings pitching in petco

Of course now there is a report that it will be a "close call" that he is ready for the opener. This probably doesn't mean to much and might actually help his value. It might scare the casual fantasy player away when in reality he might only miss one or two starts

Has Jeff Samardiza type breakout potential. Very similar arms. Big power with loose control. Hopefully Cashner can stay healthy and show us what he can do. He can be a valuable late source of strikeouts. Great guy to stash in H2H leagues. When he plays he is going to be very productive.
