God’s Wrath Watch: Andrew Cashner Has Successful Rehab Outing

Chicago Cubs News

Last night, Chicago Cubs pitcher Andrew Cashner saw his first professional action in quite some time as he recovers from twin rotator cuff strains in his throwing shoulder.

Cashner, pitching the first inning for the AA Tennessee Smokies, struck out the first two batters he faced before giving up three straight hits and being pulled after throwing 23 pitches. Cashner was on a 25 to 30 pitch limit.

Reader Brandon was at the game and said that Cashner’s line is deceiving, and the performance was much more impressive. One of the three hits was solidly struck, while the other two were unlucky cheapies. Better, Brandon says Cashner looked very good out there.


Most importantly, Cashner left the start feeling good, and multiple reports have him hitting the high 90s with his fastball.

Cashner will get a few more one/two inning starts before likely returning to the Cubs in September, and doing some work out of the pen.
