Andrew Cashner has been shut down after aggravating his lat injury.

Cashner was rocked for six runs and 10 hits over just 3 2/3 innings in a start last week, so it's possible the injury was bothering him then. With the Padres out of contention, it doesn't make sense for them to push him. Although Cashner should be fine for spring training, he remains an injury risk.
