Andrew Cashner, out since his first start of the year, had today’s extended Spring Training start scratched after feeling tightness in his shoulder. Indeed, it was the dreaded “tightness” that revealed his strained rotator cuff in the first place. He’ll undergo another MRI, and we’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed that it doesn’t show any new damage.
Either way, it’s hard to see this not setting back his return by another couple weeks. He wasn’t expected back for another two to three weeks as it was, so a setback could push his return into late June or even July.
