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.

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.

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.

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) is not close to throwing off a mound.

Cashner began throwing on flat ground Wednesday, but he'll be built up slowly before being allowed to return to the bump. The right-hander doesn't have any structural damage in his shoulder, but the Padres are understandably being extra cautious. There is no timetable for Cashner's return.
Jul 4 - 5:17 PM

Padres manager Bud Black said on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM that Andrew Cashner (shoulder) should begin playing catch on Wednesday.

Cashner landed on the disabled list late last month due to right shoulder inflammation, but he received a positive report from the doctor on Monday night. If all goes well, he should be able to rejoin the Padres' rotation around the All-Star break.
Jul 1 - 12:05 PM

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) could be cleared to resume playing catch on Tuesday after meeting with the Padres' team doctor.

Cashner didn't wind up playing catch last week as originally hoped, but he hasn't had a setback. The right-hander is eligible to return from the disabled list on Friday, but obviously it's going to take a little longer than that. He could still be ready before the All-Star break, though.

Andrew Cashner (shoulder) will play catch on Friday.

Cashner was placed on the disabled list Monday due to right shoulder inflammation, but it's obviously not considered to be a big deal since he's going to resume throwing a few days later. Barring a setback, the right-hander figures to have a good shot to return early next month when eligible.
Jun 24 - 8:55 PM

Padres placed RHP Andrew Cashner on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 19, with a right shoulder injury.

Cashner is battling some shoulder soreness and the 32-44 Padres don't want to risk making it worse. Odrisamer Despaigne will start in his place Monday versus San Francisco and could take multiple turns in the San Diego rotation if his debut goes well. Cashner, 27, owns a 2.36 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 76 1/3 innings this year.
Jun 23 - 4:07 PM

Andrew Cashner was scratched from his start Monday against the Giants due to shoulder soreness.

Rumors suggested Sunday that a trade might be in the works given the Padres' recent front office change, but there was never any substance to them. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says Cashner's right shoulder is "a little sore" and the Padres want to play it safe. Odrisamer Despaigne will start in his place versus San Francisco.
Jun 23 - 8:57 AM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that Andrew Cashner has been scratched from his scheduled start against the Giants on Monday.

No reason has been given as to the reason for the scratch, but with a change in management on Sunday, a trade is certainly a possibility. As Tim Dirkes of MLB Trade Rumors noted earlier, Odrisamer Despaigne will be recalled from Triple-A El Paso to start in his place.
Jun 22 - 11:04 PM

Andrew Cashner fired seven innings of one-run ball in a no-decision versus the Mariners on Wednesday.

This was the Padres' first home game since the death of Hall of Fame outfielder Tony Gwynn. Their ace struck out two and walked two, allowing seven hits. Cashner came into this game just 4-8 across 17 starts dating back to Aug. 19 despite a stellar 1.82 ERA. He'd gone 0-5 with a 3.29 ERA in his last seven. Now 3-6 with a 2.36 ERA and 1.19 WHIP, Cashner gets the Giants next time around.
Jun 19 - 1:06 AM

Andrew Cashner allowed four runs over six innings Friday in a loss to the Mets.

Cashner was fantastic in his first start off the disabled list last Saturday, but he labored in this one, giving up eight hits and two walks. He dropped to 2-6 with the loss and hasn't won since way back on April 16. He'll attempt to change that against the Mariners next week.
Jun 14 - 1:22 AM

Andrew Cashner shut out the Nationals for six innings Saturday in his return from the disabled list.

Cashner was going to be limited to 75-80 pitches tonight, but he only needed 70 to finish six innings. He allowed two hits, walked one and struck out five, so he hardly missed a beat after spending three weeks on the DL with a sore elbow.
