PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) - Andrew Cashner has been picked to start for the San Diego Padres on opening day against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Padres manager Bud Black says Cashner will pitch March 30 at Petco Park. Black made the announcement before Cashner's fourth spring training start Thursday night against San Francisco.
Black says the assignment is well-deserved considering the way Cashner pitched during the second half of last season.
In his first full season as a starter, Cashner went 10-9 with a 3.09 ERA last year. The right-hander appeared in 31 games, including 26 starts.
