Despaigne will be shut down for the remainder of the regular season due to a sore lat, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Despaigne was originally a candidate to start either Saturday or Sunday, but it now appears Eric Stults and Robbie Erlin will pitch on those days. Although he was able to complete a side session free of issues last Tuesday, the Padres will instead elect to go with the conservative approach. The 27-year-old Despaigne will finish 2014 with a 3.36 ERA and 1.21 WHIP over 96.1 innings.
