According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, right-hander Andrew Cashner has won his arbitration case against the Padres and will make a $2.4 million salary this season.

Cashner, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter, was offered $2.275 million by the Padres when arbitration figures were exchanged last month. The two sides went to a hearing yesterday and a three-person panel of arbitrators ultimately ruled in the player’s favor.

Held back by injuries early on in his career, the hard-throwing Cashner showed real signs of promise last season by posting a 3.09 ERA and 128/47 K/BB ratio in 175 innings over 26 starts and five relief appearances. The 27-year-old is one of the reasons why the Padres are being mentioned as a possible sleeper team for 2014.

    They went to arbitration over 125k? Did the San Diego front office have nothing better to do than nit pick one of their players in front of an arbitration panel?

      Couldn’t they have split it 62.5 each?

      Yeah, it does seem odd. Did San Diego adopt a no-arb-negotiation policy (a la Atlanta) when I wasn’t looking?

    Wouldn’t be surprised if the arbitrators and lawyers involved gobbled up more in fees than the difference in submitted numbers.
