Cashner signed a one-year $10 million deal with the Rangers in the off-season and is slated to join the rotation.
The former TCU closer was selected 19th overall in the 2008 MLB Draft by the Chicago Cubs, who converted him to a starter. The Cubs then traded him to San Diego for first baseman Anthony Rizzo.
In his seven-year career, Cashner has a 3.89 ERA and struck out 7.5 batters per nine innings against a 1.32 WHIP — walks plus hits per inning pitched.
