Cashner fell to 1-7 on Saturday, giving up three earned runs in six innings while striking out six in the 4-1 loss to the Nationals.

It's not everyday you see a pitcher with a 3.24 ERA sport a 1-7 record. It's a combination of bad luck and poor control for Cashner, but things will turn around soon. Look for him to rebound in his next start on Friday against the Dodgers.

Cashner's tough early-season luck continued on Sunday, as he was handed his sixth loss despite only allowing two runs, striking out six and walking zero batters over seven strong innings.

Four of Cashner's losses have come in games during which he has allowed two runs or fewer, a problem fantasy owners weren't banking on this season given the Padres' improved offense. Lack of wins aside there is little to complain about for his owners, as he owns a 3.07 ERA and is striking out batters at a high rate. The 28-year-old will look to reverse his fortunes against the Nationals on Saturday.

Cashner and the Padres avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.05 million contract Friday, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

Cashner was limited to just 19 starts last season, but he shined when he was on the mound, posting a 2.55 ERA. He doesn't put up the strikeout totals one would expect from a pitcher with his fastball, but he does not walk many batters either. He heads into the 2015 season as the Padres' ace.
