Joe Blanton (shoulder) played catch Tuesday.

As noted by Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post, Blanton was playing catch with teammate Sammy Solis (elbow) as both pitchers are working their way back from injuries. Blanton struggled to the tune of a 9.49 ERA through 12 1/3 innings before landing on the disabled list last week with right shoulder inflammation. The Nationals haven't mapped out a timetable for his return, but he's already moving in the right direction.

Sammy Solis (elbow) played catch Tuesday.

It's a step in the right direction for Solis, who is working his way back from elbow nerve inflammation. However, there's no clear timetable for his return.

Seth Lugo (elbow) is set to make his second minor league rehab start on Tuesday.

Lugo, who is coming back from a partial tear of his ulnar collateral ligament, allowed two hits with no strikeouts and no walks over 3 2/3 scoreless innings in his first rehab start with High-A St. Lucie last Thursday. Assuming no setbacks, he appears on track for a return in the early part of June.

Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with High-A Binghamton.

Cabrera presumably won't need much time before he's deemed ready to return. The veteran shortstop has been sidelined since May 13 due to a lingering injury to his left thumb. Jose Reyes has been handling the bulk of the shortstop duties with Cabrera on the shelf.

Padres optioned RHP Jose Valdez to Triple-A El Paso.

The move clears a spot for Carlos Asuaje on the active roster. Valdez, who was claimed off waivers from the Angels earlier this month, was just called up on Saturday and threw 41 pitches in relief in his lone appearance.

Padres recalled INF/OF Carlos Asuaje from Triple-A El Paso.

This confirms a report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal. Acquired as part of the Craig Kimbrel trade, Asuaje was batting .222/.335/.319 with one homer and 20 RBI over 39 games this season with Triple-A El Paso. He'll function in a utility role.

Javier Baez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Giants.

Baez went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer on Monday, but he'll take a seat on Monday against right-hander Jhonny Cueto. Ben Zobrist will make the start at second base and bat leadoff while Kyle Schwarber will return to left field and bat second. Ian Happ is starting in center field and will bat fifth.
May 23 - 2:10 PM

Eugenio Suarez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

It sounds like a routine day off. Scooter Gennett will make the start at the hot corner.
