Andrew Cashner is returning to the 15-day disabled list, this time with a sore shoulder.
Cashner was scratched from his scheduled start on Monday and placed on the DL with a sore right shoulder. Odrisamer Despaigne ended up starting in place of Cashner on Monday.
To make room for Despaigne on the 40-man roster the Padres placed Casey Kelley on the 60-day DL.
Jeff Saders of the San Diego Union Tribune says that Cashner’s elbow is sound and the Padres are simply playing it safe by placing him on the DL retroactive to June 21.
In 12 starts this season Cashner owns a 2.36 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP to go with 59/22 K/BB ratio.
