San Diego Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner has garnered trade interest ever since last season’s trade deadline, and is starting to get some interest from the Baltimore Orioles, according to a MASN.com report.
Cashner, 29, saw his production slip last season, going 6-16 with a 4.34 ERA. However, Cashner possesses a fastball that can reach the mid-90s and also has potential to be a reliever down the road, something he’s already done with the Padres.
In Cashner’s most productive season with the team, 2013, he went 10-9 and posted a 3.09 ERA in 175 innings.
The Padres may try to move the 6-foot-5 right-hander because he’s eligible for free agency after next season.
The Orioles lost one of their front-line starters, left-hander Wei-Yin Chen, to the Miami Marlins in free agency and may be looking to fill that void.
