Cashner's Trade Value

Recommended Posts

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.

He's no Joe Saunders!

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

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.

If Cashner pitches at least 20 starts and 175 innings and is traded on July 31st  he will make 2.7m in salary his last two months and 3.15m in bonuses.   That is 5.85m for two months of Cashner.   I think the O's will have to send cash with him.

    • I'm pretty sure these guys call the Summer Eve's Douche Bowl. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=522H44ddePQ
    • Being the number one destination by a long shot in an area with top 5 amateur talent still matters. Being in an attractive major urban area still matters. Having top notch facilities and fan base still matters. Leaving the ACC hurt the programs standing.  But there's a reason the school has had such sustained stretches of success in the past.  Even under Turgeon the team was generally a top 25ish team. If you get fired for being generally top 25ish, that's because people have higher expectations for the program.  And they should.  Because the school has all the advantages to be a top 20 team annually.   Now, that's not saying this hire will end up well for MD.  They could conceivably get worse.  But that won't be because of the program's potential.
    • I think you're looking at it the wrong way by placing too much emphasis on the current state of the program.  I of course don't think thry are currently a top-25 program.  But Maryland was able to lure away P5 coaches from schools that are on your list for their last 2 coaching hires, including during a time when they were facing NCAA sanctions.  On top of that, they were really close to luring away a coach (Sean Miller) from a program that I had listed as better than us.  That's fact, not theory.  I don't believe for a second that Turgeon's tenure here dropped the desirability of this job down to where we aren't still close to that level, nor do I think that the other schools closed the gap so significantly that we are worse than all of them.   Let's look at it another way.  If Iowa lost its coach and were looking for a coach this offseason, would they beat us out in terms of hires?  Would TAMU?   Would Alabama?  Would USC?  With Iowa and TAMU I feel very strongly thay they wouldn't. Especially since we already poached one coach from TAMU.  Alabama?  Maybe depending on how much a coach values environment over Benjamin's.  USC?  Only for someone who wants to be in LA.  FSU?  Absolutely not.  Auburn?  similar to Alabama IMO but maybe more tilted in favor of Auburn.  Arkansas?  Debatable as well.   Regardless there are enough schools on this list where I think Maryland comes out clearly ahead in this exercise that I feel comfortable putting this HC position as a top-25 job.
    • Well, Westry is out.  Smith hurt his ankle And Young was sick.  It could mean they just want more depth and that none of them are out. The McCrary thing is interesting.  Wonder if they give him carries tomorrow?
    • 2022 MLB Draft - Top 200 Prospects — Prospects Live   I posted this a month ago.  Check out his swing at No. 7.    
    • Apparently Enfield has some local ties…maybe that’s a big help. Odom, the coach at UMBC when they beat UvA figures to be on the list too.
    • Oh man, there should definitely be a Summers Eve Douche Bowl.  That would be amazing!
