Andrew Cashner (shoulder) has reported improvement in recent days and hopes to resume his throwing program on Saturday.

The Padres are cautiously building Cashner's arm strength back up before he's cleared to return to the mound. While he doesn't have any structural damage in his shoulder, the team won't rush him back and risk further aggravation. There remains no clear timetable for his return.

Cashner didn't wind up playing catch last week as originally hoped, but he hasn't had a setback. The right-hander is eligible to return from the disabled list on Friday, but obviously it's going to take a little longer than that. He could still be ready before the All-Star break, though.

Cashner, 27, owns a 2.36 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 76 1/3 innings this year.

Now 3-6 with a 2.36 ERA and 1.19 WHIP, Cashner gets the Giants next time around.
