B.O.T.D. for September 16, 2013 belongs to Andrew Cashner, SP, San Diego Padres.
The 27 year old former 1st round pick was yesterday, allowing only 1 base runner and striking out 7 pirates.
Besides the fact that he has a 3.45 FIP, a 1.15 WHIP and is only allowing .64 home runs per 9 innings, the most impressive thing about Andrew Cashner in 2013 is the amount of innings he’s thrown. Before this season, the most innings Cashner has pitched in any season was 100.1 in 2009. This season he has pitched a total of 168 innings with a start or two remaining.
Cashner has been a good surprise for the Padres but he’s a #3-#5 not a #1 or #2.
