Andrew Cashner lit-up PITCHf/x in spring opener

The radar gun in Peoria may be running a little warm, but Andrew Cashner was throwing gas. The ex-Cub came in for the Padres in the sixth inning. He threw nothing under 101 mph and broke 103 a few times. Even if you deduct a couple mph for what are probably calibration issues with the PITCHf/x system, he was still pumping serious heat.

If you take a look at Cashner’s player card, you’ll see his velocity has been moving north since coming off the DL and pitching out of the bullpen again. He was fast in September and faster in October in the Arizona Fall League.
