Andrew Cashner (thumb) is "set to start the season on the disabled list," according to MLB.com's Corey Brock.

Cashner needed emergency surgery last month on his right thumb after suffering a lacerated tendon during a hunting accident. There was some initial hope that he would be able to recover in time for the opening of the 2013 regular season, but it's not going to happen. The right-hander will aim to debut by the end of April.
