Cashner signed a one-year, $10 million contract with the Rangers on Friday, MLB.com's TR Sullivan reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old righty will look to build back up his value on a one-year deal with Texas. He notched a 5.25 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 112:60 K:BB in 132 innings with the Padres and Marlins in 2016, and was essentially unusable in fantasy. The 10.2 percent walk rate he posted was his worst mark since 2011 and his 1.30 HR/9 was well above his 0.88 career rate. His impressive raw stuff and guaranteed rotation spot with the Rangers makes him worthy of a flyer in deep leagues, but the shine has fully worn off the former top prospect.

Cashner didn't factor into the decision Friday versus the Nationals, giving up four earned runs on seven hits and two walks over four innings. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty saw Anthony Rendon and Stephen Drew take him deep for back-to-back solo homers in the fourth and saw Jose Lobaton and Trea Turner follow later in the inning with an RBI double and run-scoring single, respectively. Cashner wraps up the season with a rough September, with a 7.46 ERA and .402 wOBA surrendered in 25.1 innings cover his six starts.

Cashner didn't factor into the decision Friday versus the Braves, giving up an earned run on three hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out six.

EDGE Analysis

Cashner put a stop to his recent struggles Friday, after having given up 16 earned runs in three of his previous four starts. That stretch included outings where he yielded up six and seven earned runs, respectively, which had ballooned his ERA to 8.82 overall in September. The 30-year-old try to close out the season with a win when he takes on the Mets next Wednesday.

Cashner lasted just four innings, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks, in Sunday's comeback win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

The Marlins were looking for Cashner to provide some relief to a worn out bullpen that has been heavily taxed during the weekend series but got no such help. The hard-throwing right-hander needed 90 pitches (53 strikes) to get through four frames and has managed to pitch six innings or more in only one his last seven starts. Cashner has posted just one decent start over four September starts and holds a brutal 8.82 ERA and 2.08 WHIP over his past 16.1 innings pitched. The Marlins continue to hang in the playoff race, but they'll need to see some improvement Cashner during his next start, Friday against the Braves.

Cashner was a mess on Monday, allowing seven runs in two innings against the Braves. He gave up six hits and walked two without striking out a batter.

EDGE Analysis

Cashner has not delivered since being traded to the Marlins, allowing 27 earned runs in 39.1 innings since the deal. The hard-throwing righty has now allowed 13 runs in 12.1 September innings. He'll try to get on track against the Phillies on Sunday.

Cashner (5-11) tossed 5.1 shutout innings in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Phillies, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out nine.

EDGE Analysis

With an 0-4 and 5.57 ERA since being acquired by Miami on July 28, Wednesday's outing would've not only been Cashner's strongest with his current club, it would've been his best of the season if he'd made it through the sixth frame (102 pitches). Yet even without the quality start, the 29-year-old reached his season high for punch outs in his first win with the Marlins while helping his club reach their second win in their past 12 games.

Cashner (4-11) picked up the loss and allowed six earned runs on six hits and six walks in a five-inning outing Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Cashner has yet to win a game for the Marlins, who acquired him before the trade deadline, and his control has spiraled out of control at a fairly alarming rate since his acquisition. After issuing walks just 6.0 percent of batters faced July, that figure more than doubled to 12.5 for August. The six more walks issued Friday won't help to pad those figures.

Cashner (blister) has been confirmed as Friday's starter against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander was forced to skip a turn in the rotation after developing a blister on his pitching hand, but he has gained clearance to oppose Carlos Carrasco on Friday. Aside from one seven-run blowup at Coors Field back on Aug. 6, Cashner has pitched well since coming over from San Diego, allowing a total of seven earned runs in his other four starts.

Cashner (blister) is expected to make his next scheduled start Friday, and could even be moved up in the rotation, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The hard-throwing right-hander was held out of of start on Sunday due to a blister issue but apparently he's making solid progress. He's allowed just one earned run in each of his past two starts after a couple of rocky outings and will look to keep that momentum going, likely Friday against the Indians.
