Red Sox Acquire Andrew Cashner From Orioles; He Will Start On Tuesday

The Red Sox acquired right-handed pitcher Andrew Cashner from the Orioles, sending two 17-year-old minor leaguers (infielder Noelberth Romero and outfielder Elio Prado) to Baltimore.

Cashner will make his first Red Sox start on Tuesday night against the Blue Jays.

President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski:
Definitely gives us the improvement in that fifth spot, which we've scuffled for such a long time this year. He's a guy that's taken the ball and given six, seven innings on a consistent basis, so we like a lot of the things about him. We think he makes us better.
Cashner, 32, is in his 10th major league season; the Red Sox will be his sixth team. He has a 3.83 ERA in 17 starts this season. Since the beginning of June, Cashner has a 1.41 ERA in five starts, allowing opponents a .202 on-base average and a .221 slugging percentage (zero home runs in 32 innings).
