Cashner Talks about Promotion
In his last start, June 28 at Fort Myers, Cashner had a 75-pitch limit in a four-inning start. He allowed two hits and three walks to 17 batters, but did not allow a run.
Cashner said he was pleased with his overall performance in Daytona. He held opposing hitters to a .201 average and struck out 34 while walking 15.
"There were a few outings I was frustrated with," Cashner said. "I was on a pitch count for most of them. I felt like I could have done a little more if I weren't on a pitch count, but overall I'm pretty happy with how I've pitched."
"The other day (against Fort Myers), I got into the fourth and was cruising, and then the last hitter of the inning, I had like a 12-pitch at-bat," he added. "He just kept fouling pitches off. If I hadn't had that, I would have been able to go back out."
Cashner said that cutting back on walks while developing his changeup consisted of most of his itinerary in Daytona. A season ago, he issued 23 walks in 20 innings in the regular season between Daytona and Class Low-A Boise.
But, Cashner said, he felt he showed some of the same dominance at Daytona this season as he did in the Florida State League playoffs last September, when he tossed six scoreless innings, allowed no hits, and fanned 11 batters.
His fastball topped out at 99 mph in the postseason.
"My changeup has really been a great pitch for me lately," Cashner said. "I've just been working on it in bullpen sessions and outing to outing and I've had a lot of success getting left-handers out.
"My breaking ball has been kind of hit or miss, but my last outing I was able to get through it with my fastball and changeup. It's just one of those things that you have to work on even when you don't have your best stuff."
Cashner said his velocity this season has stayed in the low to mid 90s, topping out at 97 mph in the start against Fort Myers.
"My velocity I felt like was really good the whole time. I still haven't thrown a lot of innings, so it will be interesting to see once I get over that 100-inning mark."
