San Diego Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner experienced a freak injury while hunting this offseason. The injury was initially expected to cause
him to miss the start of the regular season, but Cashner is now confident that
he’ll be on San Diego’s Opening Day roster, according to Bill Center of The
Union-Times San Diego.
“I feel like I’m ready to go,” said the right-handed pitcher. “I’m playing catch every other day. They’re still being cautious, but I don’t see why I won’t be ready to start the season with the Padres.”
