    The 32-year-old Cashner had a strong first half, going 9-3 with a 3.83 ERA in 17 starts. He completed at least seven innings in each of his past two starts and at least six innings in each of his last five, posting a 1.41 ERA since the start of June. On the season, Cashner has held left-handed hitters to a .182 batting average, a .499 OPS and only one home run.

The right-handed hitter has appeared in 29 games, making 22 starts at third base, five at second base and two at shortstop. He has batted .264 (29-for-110) with two home runs, drawing 11 walks against 20 strikeouts.

    That worked out well. NOT ! I realize it was a low risk trade but I can imagine Baltimore is one happy team right now moving this bum for something .

    The downturn shouldn't really be a huge surprise. Cashner was running well above career norms and, 8 years in, was likely to regress. All he needs to do is pitch like a #5 for the deal to be okay.

    $10M option for 2020 which becomes guaranteed if he pitches 80 more innings this season (possible but unlikely). Not a terrible price for backend depth that we've never been able to develop.

    Romero had some promise. Not sure that we're going to miss either of them though.
