Padres Preview: 7/26 Andrew Cashner versus Marcus Stroman in second game of series in Toronto

Amid trade rumors, Cashner will look to build on solid performances against Marcus Stroman and the Blue Jays.

After a loss last night to the Blue Jays and a trade to the host team that will leave Melvin Upton, Jr. in Toronto, the Padres will look to take a win with Andrew Cashner stepping up to the mound.

Cashner is coming off a pretty stellar last outing that didn't end in his favor as the bullpen couldn't hold on. He threw 5 2/3rds innings against the Cardinals and has only allowed two earned runs over his last two games (11 2/3rds innings total) while racking up 17 Ks. Andrew is heavily rumored to be traded to several teams. He even seemed to admit to the fact that he's auditioning for a part on another team

"I know I'm going to be traded. It's just part of the game, part of where the season's at."

Marcus Stroman (8-4, 4.90 ERA) has had his fair share of struggles as well. This will be his first time facing off against the Padres. The right-hander has been improving on his performances thanks to a mechanical adjustment, allowing eight hits and only one run over eight innings against the Diamondbacks in his last start. Stroman will look to deal against a team that now has one less big bat but is currently in the midst of a 23-game home run streak. Let's see if the Padres can continue to find power even with the loss of walk-off artist Melvin Upton, Jr.

The second game of the Padres first ever series in the Six kicks off rather specifically at 4:07 Left Coast Time.

Game Time: 4:07 PM PST
