Andrew Cashner, making his second start since being activated from the disabled list, took a no-decision despite allowing just one run over six innings as the Padres needed 12 innings to defeat the Dodgers 3-2 on Friday.
Cashner only struck out one batter in his first start off of the DL, but he managed to fan eight Dodgers on the evening. He yielded only six hits and did not issue a walk as well. The only run scored in the third inning on Hanley Ramirez's RBI double. Over 14 starts, Cashner sports a 2.37 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 68/24 K/BB ratio. He'll look to keep it going when he takes on the D'Backs at home on Wednesday. Aug 30 - 2:36 AM

Andrew Cashner surrendered two earned runs in five innings Saturday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

It was his first start since June 18 and it did not go overly well. The light-hitting Arizona lineup tallied four singles, a double, a triple, a home run, and two walks against Cashner, and the 27-year-old right-hander managed just one strikeout. He'll look to improve next time out against the Dodgers.

Padres activated RHP Andrew Cashner from the 15-day disabled list.

Cashner will take the mound for the Padres on Saturday against the Diamondbacks in his first start since June 18. It's hard to know exactly what to expect out of the gate from the 27-year-old right-hander after such a long absence due to a shoulder injury, but he has shown in the past that he is very capable of dominating when healthy.

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) will be activated from the disabled list prior to Saturday's start against the Diamondbacks.

The start will be Cashner's first since June 18 as he recovers from right shoulder soreness. His final rehab start was Monday, putting him on regular rest for the start in Arizona. When he's pitched he's been very good, posting a 2.36 ERA through 12 starts before the injury.

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) will rejoin the Padres' rotation this weekend in Arizona.

Cashner made his second and final rehab start on Monday, allowing three runs over five innings. He only got his pitch count up to 63, so he doesn't figure to last terribly long this weekend. Fantasy owners might be wise to hold off on activating him immediately even though he's held a 2.36 ERA over 12 starts when healthy.
Aug 19 - 11:01 PM

Padres manager Bud Black said Tuesday on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM that Andrew Cashner (shoulder) could return from the disabled list as soon as this weekend.

Cashner allowed three runs over five innings Monday with Triple-A El Paso in his third minor league rehab start. He's only been stretched out to 63 pitches so far, so he could be a bit limited if the Padres decide to bring him back this weekend. The 27-year-old has been sidelined since June 23 with right shoulder soreness, but he could provide a nice boost to fantasy owners down the stretch.

Cashner, out since June 23 with right shoulder soreness, is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment Friday with Class A Lake Elsinore. The plan calls for him to move up to Double-A from there to make two more starts before coming off the disabled list.
Aug 5 - 11:46 AM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) will make a rehab start in Class-A Lake Elsinore on Friday.

Cashner threw a side session at Petco Park on Saturday and the results were encouraging. Cashner will throw another side session when the Padres travel to Minnesota this week, and assuming there are no setbacks, the Padres plan on having Cashner throw thirty to forty pitches in Class-A Lake Elsinore come Friday.
Aug 2 - 8:18 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) threw a bullpen session at Petco Park on Saturday.

He's scheduled to throw another one when the Padres travel to Minnesota early next week. Assuming he doesn't have a setback, Cashner will make a rehab start for Class-A Lake Elsinore on Friday. If all goes according to plan, Cashner will return to the Padres in a few weeks.
Aug 2 - 6:23 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) threw another successful bullpen session on Wednesday.

Of note, Cashner was able to throw sliders without discomfort, something that couldn't be said earlier this season. A rehab stint is on the horizon, possibly as early as next week. If all goes well, Cashner should be back with the Padres by the middle of August.
Jul 30 - 7:57 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) threw a 31-pitch bullpen session on Sunday afternoon at Turner Field.

"I kinda surprised myself with my command," Cashner said after the workout. "It was coming out good." He threw only fastballs and changeups, and is still a long way from returning to the Padres' starting rotation. But it was a significant step in the right direction. The right-hander has been out since late June with a shoulder injury.
Jul 28 - 9:43 AM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session on Sunday.

Cashner has been out since June 23 because of a right shoulder injury. Although he now seems to progressing in the right direction, he'll most likely miss the majority of August. Sunday's bullpen session will be his first since he landed on the disabled list.
Jul 26 - 11:35 PM

Andrew Cashner resumed his throwing program Saturday, playing catch before the Padres' game versus the Mets.

Cashner, who's been on the disabled list since June 23 with right shoulder soreness, is finally beginning to make some progress. But he's basically starting from scratch with his throwing program and will likely miss most of August.
Jul 19 - 6:49 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) has reported improvement in recent days and hopes to resume his throwing program on Saturday.

The Padres are cautiously building Cashner's arm strength back up before he's cleared to return to the mound. While he doesn't have any structural damage in his shoulder, the team won't rush him back and risk further aggravation. There remains no clear timetable for his return.
