From Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune comes word that Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment this Friday with the High-A Lake Elsinore Storm. He will throw 30-40 pitches in his rehab debut with an eye on returning to the Padres’ starting rotation around the last week of August.

Cashner delivered all of his pitches in a simulated session on Tuesday afternoon, reporting no issues with his shoulder. He was placed on the disabled list on June 23 due to inflammation. Tests taken since have ruled out any structural damage.

Cashner had an outstanding 2.36 ERA in 76 1/3 innings (12 starts) this season before being shut down.

The 27-year-old starter will be arbitration-eligible for the second time heading into the 2015 campaign.
