News: Cashner (2-6) was magnificent Friday against the Dodgers as he allowed one earned run on six hits, while striking out eight hitters over six innings pitched in a no decision. Impact: Since being activated from the DL earlier in the week, Cashner has put together two quality efforts without being able to pick up the win. It's the same old story for Padres pitchers, who seem to throw fantastic ball most nights while not being able to rely on their bats. It's interesting to note, however, that Cashner only threw eight first-ball strikes to the 23 hitters he faced. Look for more solid stuff from him (2.37 ERA) as the season winds down, but don't expect wins.(RotoWire, )

News: Cashner came off the disabled list, allowing seven hits and two runs in five innings against Arizona on Saturday. He struck out one and walked two in the no decision. Impact: Cashner's last win was Apr. 16, though he's only made nine starts since then. Despite his lack of victories, he still has a 2.43 ERA for the season, but it's hard to get wins when you pitch for the Padres, who are last in the majors in runs scored.(RotoWire, )

News: Cashner is expected to throw between 70 and 90 pitches Saturday in his first start since being activated from the 15-day DL, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports. Impact: Cashner is still too good and the opposing D-Backs are still too bad to contemplate sitting him Saturday, but it's doubtful that he'll be able to go more than five or six innings in his first start back from a shoulder injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Cashner was activated from the 15-day DL and will start Saturday's game against the D-Backs. Impact: Cashner has been on the disabled list since June 21 with right shoulder soreness, but we've known for a few days that he was going to be ready to make his return to the rotation Saturday. He posted a sterling 2.36 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 76.1 innings this season prior to the injury, so he's worth rolling out for the final month-plus of the season. Unfortunately, despite having a filthy arsenal, his plus stuff hasn't translated into an above average strikeout rate, which has fallen below 20 percent over the past two seasons.(RotoWire, )

News: Cashner (shoulder) will start Saturday against the Diamondbacks, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: Cashner gave up three runs on four hits and a walk while fanning four over five innings in his final rehab start for Triple-A El Paso on Monday. The training staff has cleared the right-hander to oppose Vidal Nuno on Saturday in what will be his first big league start since June 18. Shoulder and elbow issues have limited Cashner to just 12 starts this season, but he should not have any restrictions over the final weeks of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Cashner (shoulder) will approach 80 pitches in his final rehab start Monday for Triple-A El Paso, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: Upon completion of the outing, Cashner is expected to make his long-awaited return to the majors sometime in the next week, and perhaps during the upcoming weekend series at Arizona. To date, he's made two rehab appearances -- the other at High-A Lake Elsinore -- combining for three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out six in 4.2 innings.(RotoWire, )
