Pitcher Jack Cassel will likely be a Padre tomorrow

Channel 4's Steve Quis reports that Portland Beaver Pitcher Jack Cassel is with the San Diego Padres and will likely be added to the big league roster tomorrow.

Will Ledezma is going to be on a strict pitch count in his first start as a Padre and it is likely that Cassel will be brought up to back up Ledezma.

A roster move to make room from Cassel may not be necessary because of Scott Hairston's oblique injury.  The Padres will wait 24 hours and then likely place Hairston on the disabled list unless there is improvement to his condition.

Update [2007-8-9 23:40:3 by jbox]:
Gaslamp Baller jburtrum1 reminds us of Brocail's bereavement.

The Padres will be without the services of relief pitcher Doug Brocail for a minimum of three days and a maximum of seven days starting Friday as he will be placed on the bereavement list for unspecified reasons.

The Padres will likely recall 27-year-old right-handed pitcher Jack Cassel from Triple-A Portland to take Brocail's place.

Cassel, who was Portland's lone representative in the Triple-A All-Star Game, had a 7-11 record with a 3.54 ERA for the Beavers in 24 games (21 starts).
