RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Cashner sustained a laceration to his thumb during a hunting incident prior to spring training, which hampered his ability to compete for a starting spot. Opening the season as a long reliever, a start was eventually handed to him on Apr. 20, and he never looked back, holding down the fort thereafter. He especially bloomed in the second half, recording a 7.3 K/9 and 3.21 K/BB in 75.2 innings, while serving up just four homers during that stretch. His breakout campaign culminated with a shutout in his second-to-last nod, when he became the first Padres pitcher to face the minimum 27 batters in a nine-inning game. The right-hander will enter his second full season with the Padres as a guaranteed member of the rotation.
When Cashner is healthy he can be nearly untouchable, but therein lies the problem as he has battled through multiple injuries in his young career. Last season was a prime example of this as he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning of a start in Houston, only to leave the following start with what ended up being a strained lower lat muscle that cost him nearly two months on the DL. The Padres want him to be a starter and how can you blame them, when Cashner can throw near 100 mph and miss bats on a regular basis. Ultimately though, he may be destined for a role as a reliever, where he can pitch max effort and have his workload monitored. As a fantasy investment, Cashner is certainly worth the risk as his potential is that of an elite starter, but he is already expected to miss the start of the season due to a thumb injury suffered in an offseason hunting accident.
The Cubs' 2008 first-round pick won a rotation spot to start the year before a shoulder injury sidelined him for most of the season. Cashner returned at the end of the year, and touched 99 mph on his fastball, so his arm was healthy again - at least in mid-September. Cashner also saw 8.2 innings in the Arizona Fall League, so he should be ready for the start of spring training. The Cubs dealt Cashner to the Padres in January, something that should be a nice boost to his stock given the pitcher-friendliness of cavernous Petco Park. It's unclear at this point whether Cashner will see time in the rotation, given his injury history, but at a minimum he could have a prominent role in the San Diego bullpen.
Cashner dominated as a starter in the high minors last year, but struggled as a reliever for the big league club, with too many walks and pitches over the middle of the plate. Cashner did strike out nearly a batter an inning and also kept the ball on the ground, so there's reason to be encouraged. The 2008 first-round pick can reach 98 mph with his fastball and features a sharp-breaking slider and a solid changeup, a repertoire he could get a chance to display at the back end of the team's rotation this year, especially now that Kerry Wood's signing has the setup role covered.
The Cubs' first-round pick in 2008, Cashner has outstanding raw stuff, touching 98 mph with his fastball and throwing a sharp-breaking slider. Cashner's command needs work, but he did an excellent job of keeping the ball in the park, allowing just two home runs in 102 combined innings at High-A and Double-A. Cashner showed better command in the Arizona Fall League, striking out 19 and walking five in 19.2 IP, and he should be in line for a September callup if he pitches well in the high minors this season.
The 22-year-old right-hander has tremendous stuff (98 mph fastball, sharp-breaking slider), but he lacked command in 20 innings combined between the AZL Cubs, short-season Boise and High-A Daytona. His high ceiling makes him worth a look in keeper leagues, but he'll probably spend 2009 at various levels in the minors honing his control.
