CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that Padres starter Andrew Cashner has been scratched from his start against the Giants today due to shoulder soreness. Odrisamer Despaigne — which I coulda swore was a Belgian ale of some sort as opposed to a pitcher, but I guess not — will start in his place.

Cashner has made three starts since missing a month or so with elbow issues and two of those three starts were pretty good. This could just be something done out of caution. One hopes it’s not some chain reaction thing due to overcompensating or what have you. Obviously, though, we can’t know at the moment. Worth watching, though, given that the Padres just fired their GM and could be on the verge of some major restructuring.

    Actually, it’s always something with Cashner. Good pitcher for about 10 games a year.

    Doesn’t seem as serious since they didn’t automatically DL him although some roster move will be made.

    The Pads seem to have always been concerned with his arm’s durability. They probably should have sold him last season, and got the prospects before his arm turns to pulled pork.

      The Padres later placed Cashner on the 15-day disabled list with shoulder soreness (via the Padres’ website).

      Get the buns and coleslaw ready.

    Odrisamer Despaigne sounds like a medical condition.

      I thought it was a French vampire.

    Clearly he is now ready to be acquired by Cashman, the expert GM and skilled cash distributor.

      Cashman, the cash distributor, cashing in to acquire Cashner?
