Cashner delivers another dud: The sole meaningful trade acquisition for the Red Sox in July delivered his worst start in Boston to date, lasting just five outs while giving up five walks and three hits to the Angels over the first two innings. Josh Taylor rescued Cashner to limit the damage to just three earned runs but the performance helped drop the Sox to 1-5 in Cashner's starts. He is now sporting an 8.01 ERA and 1.91 WHIP over 30.1 innings of action with Boston and has delivered just one quality start in that span. The former Oriole nearly has piled up as many walks (17) as strikeouts (21) since coming to Boston. Alex Cora said after the game that his staff would be meeting to discuss the rotation on Monday and with an off day upcoming, it would not be a shock to see the Red Sox skip over Cashner who has not been able to find his rhythm in Boston at all.
