Red Sox pitcher Andrew Cashner said he would have sat out if unhappy with trade destination  4 Weeks ago

Turns out it wasn't just an idle threat from Andrew Cashner. 

The newly acquired Boston Red Sox pitcher, who was traded from the Baltimore Orioles earlier this month, doubled down to MassLive when asked whether he actually would have sat out the remainder of the 2019 season if he was unhappy with his trade destination. 

“I wish I had a no-trade clause,” Cashner told The Athletic in May. “But it’s all part of where you’re at (in your career). And, I think, once something comes (on the trade front), I’ll have to sit down with my family and decide what’s best for me.”

It was no secret the Orioles, owners of MLB's second-worst record and an organization focused on the future, would look to sell any assets this year, Cashner being one of them. The right-hander wasn't going to simply accept any trade, though, and he would have not reported to his new team if that's what he deemed the best option.

But he was happy to head to Boston, given the team's recent success. 

“I meant what I said,” Cashner told MassLive. “This is one of the places I would come. It wasn’t a place that I would ever not come to. We’re talking about the World Series champions. Why would you not come here?”

With demand outweighing supply among starters at this year's deadline, Cashner presented a veteran option for contending clubs. He was 9-3 with a 3.83 ERA over 17 starts with the Orioles before allowing six runs in five innings during his Red Sox debut.
