Cashner beats Padres in arbitration, will earn $2.4 million in 2014
Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner won his arbitration case and will earn $2.4 million this coming season.
Cashner, 27, broke out last summer, going 10-9 with a 3.09 ERA (111 ERA+) and a 1.13 WHIP in 175 innings. He made 26 starts and five relief appearances. Cashner has had problems staying healthy during his career, but last season was a good sign for his long-term future as a starter.
The $125,000 gap between filing figures was the smallest among those who did not settle before the filing deadline. The three-person arbitration panel decides whether the player will earn the salary he filed or the salary the team filed. It's one or the other, nothing in between.
Cashner was arbitration-eligible for the first time this year. He will be arbitration-eligible two more times before qualifying for free agency following the 2006 season.
