Jason Vargas and Andrew Cashner are two pitchers who spent the better part of this decade constantly linked to the Orioles in rumors about trades and free agency. That extended into this past offseason, and while Cashner ended up with the Orioles on a two-year, $16 million deal with a third-year option, Vargas signed a similar deal with the New York Mets three days later.
It’s fair to say they’ve worked out a bit differently.
Cashner, 31, enters his matchup with Vargas on Tuesday at Camden Yards with a 3-10 record and a 4.83 ERA in 22 starts. The left-handed Vargas, 35, is 2-8 with an 8.75 ERA in 12 starts.
Like with Wade Miley before...
