Cahill (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill hasn't faced live hitters since landing on the disabled list more than a month ago, so he'll likely need a few rehab appearances before he is ready to rejoin the Padres. He could return from the DL in early July if all goes well, though a return closer to the All-Star break seems to be the safer timetable for the 29-year-old.

Cahill (shoulder) is scheduled to face hitters in a simulated game Thursday, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill has been sidelined for over a month with the strained shoulder, so even if he checks out fine during Thursday's activity, he'll still need to make at least one rehab start before rejoining the Padres. In a best-case scenario, Cahill will come off the disabled list by the end of the month, but it may be wiser for fantasy owners to plan for a return shortly before the All-Star break until the organization indicates otherwise.

Cahill (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Tuesday and is scheduled to throw another session before tossing a simulated game this weekend, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill has been on the shelf with a shoulder strain for the past month. If he's able to work through his upcoming bullpen session with no setbacks, he'll be able advance his rehab by throwing a simulated game this weekend either in Milwaukee or with a minor-league affiliate. Cahill could rejoin the rotation in the next week or two.

Cahill (shoulder) played catch before Friday's game, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

He was also scheduled to be re-evaluated on Friday, but it is unclear exactly what the results of that examination were. He has not pitched since May 13, and if everything checked out, he should continue with a throwing program before eventually heading out on a rehab assignment.

MRI results on Cahill's shoulder revealed no structural damage, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This comes as a relief for the Padres' ace, who was concerned about possible structural damage after experiencing discomfort during a recent throwing session. He'll be shut down for at least 10-to-14 days now before he resumes throwing, at which point there should be a clearer timetable for his recovery. Jarred Cosart should continue to fill in for Cahill in the starting rotation for the time being.

Cahill (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo an MRI after experiencing some discomfort during a throwing session Saturday, Jeff Sanders of the Union-Tribune reports. "He didn't feel great. He's going to get it looked at to try to figure out if there's anything structurally that we need to be concerned about," said manager Andy Green on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

This is a concerning development for the Padres' ace, who tested out his shoulder Saturday for the first time since landing on the disabled list earlier in the week. Sunday's MRI should shed more light on the exact issue with Cahill's shoulder, at which point the Padres figure to have a firmer timetable for his return. In the meantime, Jarred Cosart figures to continue to hold down Cahill's spot in the rotation.

Cahill was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder strain.

EDGE Analysis

The move is retroactive to May 14, meaning the first day he can return to action is next May 24. This is the first time any news regarding a shoulder injury has come forth, although it may go to explain why he wasn't as sharp as usual in his most recent start. It's unclear how much time he'll miss with this injury, but Jarred Cosart seems like a logical candidate to make a couple spot starts in his stead. In a corresponding move, Kevin Quackenbush was recalled from Triple-A.

Cahill allowed four runs -- three earned -- on eight hits and a walk while striking out seven batters during Saturday's loss to the White Sox. He didn't factor into the decision.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty wasn't as sharp Saturday as he'd been in previous outings, but it was encouraging to see him post another solid showing in the strikeouts column. Cahill currently sports an 11.1 K/9 and 29.5 strikeout percentage, which is a sterling complement to his respectable 3.27 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. It could be tough to pile up wins with San Diego's pedestrian offense, but Cahill's early-season run has been impressive. He lines up to make a home start against the Brewers next week.

Cahill (3-2) allowed one hit while walking five and striking out seven over 5.1 shutout innings in Monday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Cahill won his third straight decision in his last four games with the solid effort. He was originally scheduled to start Sunday against the Dodgers, but the game was washed out. Despite the right-hander's season-high five walks Monday, he's now fanned at least six hitters in all six of his starts this season. Because of his ability to consistently create swings and misses, Cahill has become a low-cost streaming option that is more appealing at home at Petco Park.

Cahill will not make his scheduled start Sunday against the Dodgers as the game has been postponed due to rain, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The game will be made up as a double-header in San Diego on Sept. 2. It's possible that Cahill will simply have his start pushed back to Monday against the Rangers, though we'll have for an official announcement from the Padres on that front.
