Padres starter Andrew Cashner was shelled for six earned runs in just 3 2/3 innings last week against a weak Rockies lineup. He did not look right.
And he apparently wasn’t feeling right either.
From the San Diego Union-Tribune comes word that Cashner has experienced more problems with his troublesome right lat muscle and is being shut down for the remainder of the 2012 regular season.
This is the same lat that cost the hard-throwing righty most of July and all of August. He merely needs rest, not surgery, and should have a normal winter.
Cashner wound up posting a 4.37 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 52/19 K/BB ratio across 45 1/3 innings this season for fourth-place San Diego. The 26-year-old is a lock for one of the Padres’ rotation spots in 2013.
