Andrew Cashner SP SD 1 Month

Andrew Cashner was scratched from his start Monday against the Giants due to shoulder soreness.

Rumors suggested Sunday that a trade might be in the works given the Padres' recent front office change, but there was never any substance to them. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says Cashner's right shoulder is "a little sore" and the Padres want to play it safe. Odrisamer Despaigne will start in his place versus San Francisco.
