@UTPadres suggests Cashner is headed to arbitration.  Cashner is the prospective ace of the starting rotation after going 10-9 with a 3.09 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 2013.  He earned $500,000 last season, and is due for a substantial raise.


@UTPadres has also tracked the nearly $12 million uptick in payroll with 17 players under contract for the 2014 season.
