Andrew Cashner (neck) threw a successful bullpen session Tuesday.

It was his first mound workout since he landed on the disabled list June 11 with a neck strain. Cashner won't be ready for activation when first eligible, but early July sounds about right. "I don't think he's like a long ways off, but getting back in the 15 (days) is probably a little ambitious," manager Andy Green said. "He's going to have to be stretched out a little bit in his next side session, make sure everything feels good."

Andrew Cashner (neck) could play catch on Friday.

Padres manager Andy Green said that Cashner "was beginning to throw" Thursday, but the team decided to hold off for at least one more day. He's missed the last week of action with a strained neck and probably won't return before the end of the month at this point.
Jun 17 - 10:03 AM

Padres placed RHP Andrew Cashner on the 15-day disabled list with a strained neck.

Cashner had to be lifted from Friday's start against the Rockies after throwing just six pitches. Erik Johnson, who is starting for the Padres on Saturday, will take his place on the Padres roster. Luis Perdomo could take Cashner's rotation spot until the right-hander is ready to return.
Jun 11 - 1:41 PM

Andrew Cashner was forced to leave Friday's game after facing just one batter due to an apparent injury.

It isn't yet known what the oft-injured right-hander did, but he looked very uncomfortable after delivering his second pitch to the second hitter of the night and the decision to get him came very quickly. Expect an update from the Padres on his status shortly.
Jun 10 - 8:55 PM

Andrew Cashner tossed 5 2/3 innings of three run ball to earn the win in a 4-3 defeat of the Rockies on Saturday night.

He needed one more out to earn a quality start. Cashner has a 3-5 record, 4.78 ERA and 1.46 WHIP after his first 10 starts. He throws hard but straight, limiting his ability to get whiffs. Cashner has a career 2.97 ERA at home and a 4.42 ERA on the road, which should tell you all you need to know to decide when to start him and when to sit him.
Jun 5 - 3:29 AM

Andrew Cashner was charged with four runs -- three earned -- across 6 1/3 frames in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

Cashner was cruising along through five innings, but the M's got to him with three hits and four runs in the sixth, which included a two-run homer by Kyle Seager that put Seattle up for good. The hard-throwing righty allowed exactly three earned runs in each of his four starts in May, and he sports a disappointing 32/19 K/BB over 47 frames on the year. Cashner gets the Rockies at home this weekend.
May 30 - 7:32 PM

Andrew Cashner pitched respectably in his return from the 15-day disabled list, yielding three runs on four hits over six innings in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

Cashner, who was shelved with a right hamstring strain in early May, struck out one and walked four in his return to the mound. The Giants would score two of their three runs against the 29-year-old right-hander in the sixth inning, with Buster Posey (RBI double) and Brandon Crawford (RBI single) striking to snap a 1-1 tie. Prior to hitting the disabled list, Cashner held a 4.93 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 28/14 K/BB ratio over 34 2/3 innings. Until he can improve on those bloated numbers, he does not make for an appealing fantasy option outside of the deepest of NL-only formats. He will take to the road for a date with the Mariners next time he toes the rubber.
May 25 - 1:08 AM

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

Cashner will start for the Padres on Tuesday night against the Angels after missing the last three weeks with a strained right hamstring. The right-hander registered an underwhelming 4.93 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 28/14 K/BB ratio over his first 34 2/3 innings this season.
May 24 - 5:10 PM

The Padres will activate Andrew Cashner (hamstring) from the disabled list on Tuesday.

He'll return against the Giants Tuesday with James Shields following him on Wednesday. A strained hamstring caused Cashner to miss a couple turns in the starting rotation but it was never anything serious. So far, the right-hander has produced an underwhelming 4.93 ERA in 34 2/3 innings for the Friars this season.
May 21 - 9:26 PM

Andrew Cashner (hamstring) believes he'll be ready to come off the disabled list as soon as he's eligible.

Cashner threw a side session Friday in hopes of starting Saturday's game against Milwaukee but the Padres played it safe by putting him on the disabled list. He's eligible to come off the DL May 24 versus San Francisco. It probably won't happen on that exact day, but Cashner should be activated later this month.
May 14 - 9:52 PM

Padres placed RHP Andrew Cashner on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 9, with a strained right hamstring.

He's actually dealing with tightness in both hamstrings. Cashner tested out his hamstrings with some running Friday and he just hasn't recovered as quickly as hoped. He shouldn't need too much time to recover but will miss at least a couple starts. The Padres could go with a bullpen game on Saturday in Milwaukee.
May 13 - 6:01 PM

Andrew Cashner (hamstrings) is questionable to start on Saturday versus the Brewers.

Cashner is dealing with tightness in both hamstrings. He was originally slated for Friday, but the Padres will call up Christian Friedrich in order to buy an extra day for Cashner. The righty threw on flat ground and tested his mobility on Thursday. "He's improving," manager Andy Green said. "We just have to continue to play it by ear."
May 13 - 10:45 AM

The Padres will announce Friday's starter after Thursday's game against the Brewers.

Friday is Andrew Cashner's turn in the rotation but his status is still up in the air after leaving his last start with hamstring cramps. He went out on the field before Thursday's game to test his mobility. Cashner hasn't pitched especially well this year. He's logged a 2-3 record with a mediocre 4.93 ERA over seven starts.
May 12 - 7:12 PM

Andrew Cashner (hamstring) is questionable for his next turn in the Padres' rotation.

It's supposed to come this weekend in Milwaukee. Cashner left his start Sunday against the Mets with cramping in his right hamstring and he was still feeling some symptoms on Wednesday morning. This doesn't sound like a disabled list situation, but the right-hander might not pitch again until sometime next week.
