Fantasy Baseball: Evaluating San Diego’s crowded outfield

With a flurry of moves this offseason, the San Diego Padres have brought in two former MVP candidates and one of baseball’s most talented young players. While that may sound like a good move, the club has not moved any of their other outfielders from 2014, meaning that they have six outfielders who will be vying for playing time next year.

Player Profile #174: Andrew Cashner | SP | SD

If there was ever a pitcher heading into 2014 who has become synonymous with the phrase “injury prone” Cashner was it, and he didn’t do a whole heck of lot to reverse that label. Once again, Cashner failed to hold up for a full season. While there is no mistaking his breakable body, what makes Cashner difficult to value, however, is how good he is when healthy.
