The San Diego Padres will play game two of the three game road series against the Colorado Rockies later on tonight but before they do, they have added right-handed starting pitcher Andrew Cashner on the disabled list.
#Padres GM Josh Byrnes said Cashner will have an MRI Monday. Hopeful it’s nothing serious as stuff was good against the Reds, Byrnes said.

Brock notes that Cashner will undergo an MRI on Monday. He’s experiencing a little bit of soreness in his right elbow which will cause a little bit of concern for the organization. Hopefully it’s nothing bad considering how talented Cashner is. The 27 year old righty has himself a solid 2.35 ERA with 47 strikeouts through 57 1/3 innings of work this season.
Pitcher Donn Roach will be making a spot start for the Padres tomorrow afternoon. It was Cashner’s start but it’s obvious that he won’t be able to make the outing. The 24 year old has been pitching out of the bullpen and will more than likely continue to pick up Cashner’s starts until he’s ready to come back. That’s if he’s able to return at all.
Hopefully Tommy John surgery isn’t brought up.
