I'd think if he isn't finding the strike zone I'd sit him for that @Ari start but that is it.

Missing: Andrew Cashner’s Hard Slider

Seems he's throwing more of a slurve than a slider and he's not missing as many bats with it. The results are good so far, with a 2.51 ERA and 1.12 WHIP but K/9 is down to 5.65 which is absurdly low and leads to a 4.32 xFIP. This doesn't bode well for the future. He was able to throw the hard slider last year when he was a starter so unless he's injured it should be available to him. Maybe he'll have to get knocked around a bit before he makes the switch. It's nice that he is going deeper into games with this pitch-to-contact approach (77 pitches to get through 7 last night) but I'd much rather him be at 100+ through 7 innings with a few more K's and less balls in play. He's got the Nats at home next time out which is pretty safe as they can't score runs and it's in Petco, but if it's the same story in that game then I'd try to sell him.
