No. 27: Andrew Cashner

Position: SP | Age: 30
Current Team: Marlins | Best Fit: Pirates
2016 Stats: 5–11, 5.25 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, 7.6 K/9

Cashner has still got strong stuff, boasting the high-90s heater that once led the Padres to trade Anthony Rizzo to the Cubs acquire him back in 2012. He's simply not effective enough at controlling it, as his relatively low strikeout rate (and escalating walk rate and WHIP) suggests. This just sounds like a job for Ray Searage, the Pirates' pitching coach and resident miracle worker.
