Cashner's Trade Value

Recommended Posts

If I was a team with playoff hopes, I would definitely be looking to trade something for him. To be able to do what he's doing WITH THIS TEAM, is pretty good right now.

Thanks for sharing I guess?

But not really.

You only have 49 stars on your flag Abe?

Would that mean we can get rid of the Cards and Royals?

As of now, how many potential playoff teams are in need of a back of the rotation guy?

AL

Yankees:  Look pretty set with their rotation

Rays:  No

Red Sox: Maybe, currently Cashner would be their 4th best player going by ERA(4.37), beating out EdRod's 4.71 and they've been running a platoon as their 5th starter

Twins: Probably not

Indians: Are banged up and definitely in need of starting pitching.   Cashner could easily come in and be their #4 guy 

Astros: I'd say no, but they do lack a 5th starter

Rangers: Yes, Cashner would compete for the 3/4/5 spot. 

Athletics: With the Montas suspension, yes

NL

Braves:  With their injuries, yes

Phillies: Cashner would be their third best starter by ERA, and thats not even factoring in a ~0.3 ERA difference between AL/NL.   However I don't know if the Phillies are going to make a run   There may be some pressure to try to make an attempt though, with the Harper splurge this year

Cubs:  Cashner might fit in as their #4, plus Hendricks is on the 10 DL so they might anticipate needing depth

Brewers: Yes, would probably be their #3/#4

Cards:  Cashner would be their third best starter going by ERA, but not by much as their 3/4 (Waightwright and Mikolas) are around 4.5, but their is a big dropoff for their #5 starter who is posting a 5.59.   

Dodgers: Heck no, they have crazy SP depth

Rockies:  Yes, although Coors field ... 

 

Summary: 

Yes: 7 teams (Indians, Rangers, As, Braves, Phillies, Brewers, Rockies)

Maybe: 4 teams ( RedSox, Astros, Cubs, Cards) 

No:  4 teams (Yankess, Rays, Twins, Dodgers)

Among qualifed starters:

4.60FIP(66th)

5.08xFIP(74th)

5.15SIERA(72nd)

Even if the Orioles ate money you'd be lucky to get a lottery ticket back. He's not the kind of guy anyone would throw in a play off game.

The '96 Orioles gave seven postseason starts combined to David Wells, Scott Erickson, and Rocky Coppinger, all of whom had ERAs over 5.00 and ERA+s under 100. And they won the ALDS!

O's are going to have to throw in some cash to trade him.  Its not only his salary.  He can earn millions in bonuses if he stays healthy.

Maybe not in a playoff game but in games leading up to the playoffs fighting for the division or a wildcard spot.

Stick him in the pen once the playoffs start in case you need a long man.

Repeat after me, Cashner has never pitched 187 innings in a season.

He is not on pace to throw 187 innings this season.

It will be easy for any team to limit his innings.

The option is not going to vest.

 

I have no idea why you posted that in response to this post.    I said bonuses not option year.

That would be why I deleted it.  😀

I don't, however, think the potential bonuses would hurt his value much.

    • Bleier trade continues to bite the O's last night.  Fry  could not find the plate especially against right-handed batters. Needing to face three batter in not Fry's game.    It didn't affect the outcome because the O's didin't  hit.  However, Fry does not look up to being the 2nd lefties in the pen  which shows how much the O's miss Bleier.  Fry would be a candidate to be sent down but there is no lefty to replace him so he will probably stay in the majors.
    • SummerSlam ‘92 is on FS1.  Quarantine + Nostalgia = Mullet for backwardsk ?
    • I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight... fml     So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃 GO O'S!!!!
    • And now for something completely different...   NSFW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpx_VXRG_qc  
    • Now that does make sense: greater risk, greater reward. So do healthy pitchers make more than healthy batters? Serious question.
    • On his pro-rated salary, Cobb would earn @ $4.5MM the rest of this season. That would be nothing for a contending team to take on if they were sold on him putting them over the top. But I can't imagine being so desperate on August 4, 10 games into a 60 game season if I were a decision maker to take on the entirety of his contract.  If a team really wants to gamble a little bit of cash on Cobb to win this year's WS, they may be wrangled into taking half the burden on the 2021 salary, while the Orioles pay half of this season's $4.5MM remaining. This is starting to sound too good to be true!
