Andrew Cashner tosses five innings in rehab start

2 Comments

Making his way back from a shoulder injury, Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner logged five innings in a minor-league rehab start Monday at Triple-A.

Cashner allowed three runs on four hits and one walk, striking out four. He threw 63 pitches, which suggests he’s likely one or two more rehab starts from potentially rejoining the Padres’ rotation for the first time since late June.

Before being shut down Cashner had a 2.36 ERA in 12 starts, giving him a combined 3.08 ERA in 298 innings since the Padres acquired him from the Cubs for Anthony Rizzo in 2012.

Astros third baseman Alex Bregman apparently wasn’t happy with his mustache on Sunday afternoon as he shaved it off in between innings during his team’s contest against the Royals. Bregman walked and later scored in the Astros’ eight-run second inning, but when he took his next plate appearance in the fourth inning, he was clean-shaven.

Sometimes you just need to switch things up. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♀️

Bregman made a throwing error in the seventh and finished 0-for-4 with the walk on the afternoon. The Astros won 11-3.

Bregman isn’t the only player to make headlines for his facial hair recently. Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper recently shaved his signature beard. The Yankees approve of what both players have done.
