Padres roster move: Andrew Cashner placed on 15-day DL with shoulder soreness

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Last night when the word came down that Andrew Cashner would not be making his scheduled start tonight, all we were told was that the Padres were "being conservative with him". Well, now it looks like they're either being very conservative with him or that was a load of crap, because the team placed him on the 15-day DL this morning with soreness in his right shoulder. That's the one he uses to throw baseballs, don't you know.

The "conservative" remarks lead me to believe it's not super-serial bad news goin' on in his shoulder - like he'd be on the hill if the team were two games out of first in mid-September but there's no sense in exacerbating whatever twinges he's feeling just for some nothing game in a tumultuous turd of a season. That's just one idiot spitballing, though; your mileage may vary.

Placing Cashner on the DL made room on the 25-man roster for tonight's starter Odrisamer Despaigne; Casey Kelly was shifted from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL to make room for him on the 40-man roster. This is essentially a non-move, since Kelly is still getting his rehab on.
