According to Dennis Lin of U-T San Diego, Padres right-hander Andrew Cashner began a minor league rehab assignment last night with High-A Lake Elsinore and tossed two scoreless innings.

Cashner, out since June 23 with right shoulder soreness, allowed one hit and no walks while striking out three batters. He threw 19 out of 24 pitches for strikes. Jeff Sanders of U-T San Diego reports that he’s expected to make two more starts in the minors, with the next coming Wednesday with Double-A El Paso. The hope is that he’ll get stretched out to around 75-8o pitches before making his return.

Cashner, 27, owns a 2.36 ERA and 59/22 K/BB ratio in 76 1/3 innings over 12 starts this season. He’s under team control for two more seasons, so it will be interesting if new general manager A.J. Preller considers dealing him during the offseason. Proving his health and effectiveness down the stretch would increase the asking price.

    Double A El Paso is really triple A El Paso, in the PCL.

      And the AA team is the San Antonio Missions.
