Blaine Boyer hasn't pitched since Thursday's due to right shoulder fatigue.

He hasn't thrown a ball since then, but Boyer thinks he'll be back soon. "I think we all came to the conclusion that it's just fatigue, fatigue in the back part of my shoulder," Boyer said.

Boyer has been a nice surprise for the Padres this season, posting a 3.05 ERA and 29/8 K/BB ratio over 38 1/3 relief innings.
