Everth Cabrera (hamstring) is slated to begin jogging on Monday.
Cabrera took some grounders and hit in the batting cage on Thursday. It's sounding like the shortstop has a good chance to be activated on September 1 when rosters expand.
Padres manager Bud Black said that Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) could be available as soon as Friday.
If not Friday, Benoit is expected to be ready to go on Saturday. There was some worry that the reliever's wonky shoulder could send him to the disabled list, but he threw a bullpen session Thursday with no issues.
Cubs recalled RHP Blake Parker from Triple-A Iowa.
Parker will be the 26th man as the Cubs and Giants complete their abbreviated "doubleheader." The righty owns a 6.57 ERA this year in 12 1/3 big league innings.
Ryan Vogelsong took a loss on Thursday, allowing four runs over two innings, as play was resumed from Tuesday and the Cubs defeated the Giants by a 2-1 margin.
Play was halted after Vogelsong had allowed two runs through four innings, both on Anthony Rizzo's first-inning, two-run home run. It proved to be the deciding factor. Vogelsong did not pitch on Thursday, finishing the game having allowed three hits and two walks while striking out four. He'll take a 3.73 ERA and a 122/41 K/BB ratio into Sunday's road start against the Nationals.
Hector Rondon escaped a ninth-inning jam to pick up his 19th save as the Cubs defeated the Giants on Thursday, when play resumed from Tuesday's rain-shortened contest.
Rondon allowed two one-out singles to Joe Panik and Brandon Crawford, but was able to strike out Gregor Blanco and get Angel Pagan to sharply ground out to end the threat and the ballgame. Rondon is now 19-for-23 in save chances with a 2.92 ERA and a 53/13 K/BB ratio.
