Cashner Joins Cubs' Rookie League Team

Former TCU star Andrew Cashner and Major League Baseball's Chicago Cubs have finalized all the details on Cashner's brand new contract with the Cubs and the big right-hander is now on his way to Mesa, Arizona to join the Cubs' Arizona Rookie League team.

Cashner's stay with the Mesa Cubs may be a short one, however, as the initial game plan calls for the former TCU closer to pitch for Mesa for only 2-3 weeks before being promoted to the Boise (Idaho) Hawks, the Cubs' short-season Class A affiliate.

Cashner was the Cubs' first round draft pick in June's Major League Baseball Player Draft, following an outstanding season at TCU in which he posted a 9-4 record with 9 saves and a 2.32 ERA, while striking out 81 batters in 54 innings pitched.

Cashner's postseason honors included being named to the All Mountain West Conference team and Baseball America's All-America team.
