News: Benoit (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, and could be active for the Padres on Friday, the Union-Tribune's Jeff Sanders reports. Impact: Kevin Quackenbush has been holding down the ninth inning in Benoit's absence, but the Padres' closer seems likely to return this weekend, if a save situation were to arise.(RotoWire, )

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, )
