3/2 Cashner to start Saturday
Andrew Cashner will get his first spring start Saturday against the Padres. The right-hander was used in relief last season but is being stretched out this spring to see if he can fill one of the openings in the rotation. Cashner went two innings in his first outing Monday. He’ll start Saturday and be followed by Randy Wells against the Padres.
Carlos Zambrano will go Thursday against the Rangers and Matt Garza on Friday against the Royals. Braden Looper is slated to make his first appearance for the Cubs on Thursday.
