AP source: RHP Cashner has $10M, one-year deal with Rangers
A person familiar with the decision says free agent right-hander Andrew Cashner has reached an agreement on a $10 million, one-year deal with the Texas Rangers.
That person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal was pending a physical and wasn't finalized and the team had not made an official announcement.
Cashner finished last season with the Florida Marlins after the San Diego Padres traded him July 29. He was 5-11 with a 5.25 ERA in 28 games combined.
Texas had inquired about Cashner before the non-waiver trade deadline last summer, and had previously been interested in him.
Cashner is a Texas native and 2008 first-round draft pick by the Chicago Cubs out of TCU, a campus about 20 miles from the Rangers' ballpark.
