Padres ace Andrew Cashner has had a brush with elbow soreness that, inexplicably in this day and age, did not result in him being scheduled for Tommy John surgery. Now it looks like he’ll be back on Saturday, barring any weirdness.

Cashner had a successful 65-pitch simulated game Monday and before that he had a good bullpen session. He has one more bullpen today and if that goes well he and his super duper fastball will face the Nationals.

On the season Cashner is 2-5 with a 2.35 ERA and 47 strikeouts in 57 and a third innings.

    If this works out, maybe they’ll bring back lefty Robbie Erlin, who also had elbow soreness and survived a MRI. Who knows – this could start a trend, though I suspect clubs are tired of paying for the surgery, which I’ve been told costs over $800 per elbow.
