News: Benoit (shoulder) played catch Saturday, the Associated Press reports. Impact: Benoit, who has missed the last 10 games, came through the session without issue, but still likely remains, at the very least, a few days away from a return to the Padres' bullpen. He'll probably need to toss a couple of strong side sessions before the team feels comfortable reinserting him into the closer's role.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit (shoulder) will likely be sidelined for another 8-to-10 days,'s Corey Brock reports. Impact: This would match a similar timetable the Padres followed with Benoit when he experienced shoulder soreness earlier this month, and with San Diego out of contention, it's no surprise they will play it safe with Benoit. Kevin Quackenbush figures to see the save opportunities in the short term, and those in shallower leagues may want to look to the waiver wire, as Benoit could only be available over the final two weeks.(RotoWire, )

News: Benoit is experiencing some renewed discomfort in his right shoulder and will be sidelined for at least a few days, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: The Padres have decided to shut down Benoit until the inflammation in his shoulder subsides, but there's no specific timetable for when that may occur. Benoit was sidelined for 11 days with the sore shoulder earlier this month, but returned last Sunday to record two saves within a three-game span. With the 37-year-old facing an uncertain return date, the Padres will likely turn to Kevin Quackenbush as their closer for as long as Benoit remains sidelined.(RotoWire, )
