Cashner allowed two runs on five hits with three strikeouts and one walk across six innings to earn a victory against the Mariners on Saturday. The 32-year-old actually gave up fewer runs in both of his last two starts, but this was his first win of the month. Cashner has pitched well in June, though, posting a 2.00 ERA over 18 innings. Overall, he is 7-3 with a 4.37 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 56 strikeouts in 82.1 innings this season. He will start next at home against the Indians next Saturday.
Cashner (6-3) gave up three runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk across six innings Monday, striking out two and taking the loss to Oakland. Despite allowing three runs and taking the loss, it wasn't a terrible start for the veteran right-hander. Cashner coughed up an RBI double to Matt Olson in the first inning before two runs crossed in the third on a throwing error by Chance Sisco. He allowed just one hit after that. Cashner will take a 4.48 ERA into Seattle on Saturday.
Cashner (finger) will start Monday against Oakland, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. A blister on his finger prevented Cashner from making his previously scheduled start Friday against the Red Sox, but he'll wind up being pushed back a few days rather than missing his start entirely. The veteran owns a 4.73 ERA in 13 starts for the Orioles this season.
Cashner (finger) believes his blister will be fine in a couple days and is tentatively scheduled to throw Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Cashner was scratched from Friday's start due to the blister, and Luis Ortiz was called up from Triple-A Norfolk to start in his stead. If all goes well Sunday, Cashner could seemingly avoid the injured list and miss only the one turn through the rotation.
Cashner (finger) will not start Friday against the Red Sox, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports. Cashner exited his previous start due to a hot spot on his middle finger, and it appears the issue is bothersome enough to keep him from making his next start on schedule. It remains to be seen whether the blister will force the right-hander to miss more than one turn through the rotation. The Orioles are expected to announce a replacement starter for Cashner following Thursday's game.
