Everth Cabrera (hamstring) will rejoin the Padres on Thursday to begin baseball activities.

It will be the first work for Cabrera since hitting the disabled list with a left hamstring strain last week. It's still unclear how long he'll be out, as this is the second time he's been sidelined by the same hamstring strain this season. Alexi Amarista continues to start at shortstop in his absence.

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.

Padres reinstated OF Cameron Maybin from the restricted list.

Maybin is back with the Padres after completing a 25-game suspension for testing positive for amphetamines. The 27-year-old is batting .247/.286/.368 with one home run, nine RBI, and three stolen bases in 62 games with the Padres this season.
Aug 20 - 6:13 PM

Padres designated LHP Bobby LaFromboise for assignment.

LaFromboise, 28, has posted a 4.75 ERA and 45/21 K/BB ratio over 53 innings of relief this season in Triple-A. He had a brief stint with the big club earlier this year, but didn't make an appearance. There's a good chance he'll pass through waivers unclaimed.
Aug 20 - 6:09 PM

Padres optioned INF Jace Peterson to Triple-A El Paso.

The move clears the way for Cameron Maybin's return from the restricted list. Peterson is hitting .113 (6-for-53) over 27 games with the Padres this season and should be back in September.

Abraham Almonte went 4-for-5 with a double, run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's setback against the Dodgers.

Almonte was spectacular at the dish, but an adventure on the base paths, as he was caught stealing and later thrown out to end the game. Fortunately, the latter two mistakes won't be counted in the vast majority of formats. He's almost unowned across formats, and that needs to change. The 25-year-old -- Seattle's Opening Day center fielder and leadoff hitter -- is slashing .361/.368/.528 since coming over in the Chris Denorfia deal. As long as he's hot and playing every day, Almonte should be started in NL-only formats.
Aug 20 - 1:55 AM

Jedd Gyorko finished 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 8-6 loss against the Dodgers.

Gyorko crushed a Kevin Correia pitch 413 feet over the center field wall in the first inning to plate Abraham Almonte and Seth Smith and give San Diego an early 3-0 lead. He didn't reach again until a ninth inning single off Kenley Jansen. That hit momentarily made the affair very interesting, but Almonte was thrown out after rounding third to end the game. Gyorko remains hot since returning from the disabled list (plantar fasciitis) in late July, going 24-for-77 (.312) with four homers, five doubles and 20 RBI.

Ian Kennedy was blasted for six runs (five earned) over five innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday night.

The Dodgers didn't take Kennedy out of the yard, but they were quite content to make the evening miserable on him within the confines of Dodger Stadium. Chief amongst those hitting the balls on the screws were Matt Kemp and Justin Turner, each of whom doubled twice. You could be forgiven for not having seen this stinker coming: Kennedy came into the game 4-1 with a 2.57 ERA over his last eight starts. We do know, however, that the right-hander hates facing Los Angeles, having gone 0-3 with a 6.51 ERA in his previous six outings against them. While you're advised to avoid him in any matchup across from the Dodgers, Kennedy is a useful fantasy hurler against most everybody else. He will take a 3.72 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 168/54 K/BB ratio into this weekend's start in Arizona.
Aug 20 - 1:41 AM

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 designated INF Brooks Conrad for assignment.

Conrad was already in the minors, but now he's off the 40-man roster. The veteran infielder can declare free agency assuming he clears waivers.
Aug 19 - 6:37 PM

Padres purchased the contract of LHP Frank Garces from Double-A San Antonio.

Garces has thrived in a move to the bullpen this season, putting up a 2.07 ERA while striking out 73 over 61 innings at San Antonio. The 24-year-old will be making his major league debut when he gets into a game.
Aug 19 - 6:36 PM

Padres optioned RHP Jesse Hahn to Double-A San Antonio.

Hahn has already thrown a career-high 110 1/3 innings this season, and with his injury history that Padres are beginning the process of tapering off his workload. He will return next month but whether it's as a starter or reliever hasn't been determined. Hahn has had a terrific rookie campaign, posting a 2.96 ERA over 12 starts.
Aug 19 - 6:34 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.
Aug 19 - 1:06 PM

Padres activated LHP Robbie Erlin from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A El Paso.

Erlin is finally recovered from his lingering left elbow injury but will get some more time on the farm before the Padres consider returning him to their rotation. He hasn't pitched in a major league game since May.
Aug 18 - 3:41 PM

Odrisamer Despaigne gave up five earned runs in four innings Sunday in a loss to the Cardinals.

The Cardinals weren't fooled at all buy Despaigne's sometimes-deceptive stuff, pounding him for five singles and a home run. The right-hander has been really good at times this year, but he's a risky fantasy bet going forward. A date with the Diamondbacks is next.
