Padres put RHP Cashner on DL, add RHP Despaigne
SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Diego Padres have put righty Andrew Cashner on the 15-day disabled list with a sore right shoulder and purchased the contract of right-hander Odrisamer Despaigne from Triple-A El-Paso.
Despaigne is set to make his major league debut Monday night when he starts the series opener against the San Francisco Giants. He is 1-3 with a 6.03 ERA in seven minor league starts this season.
Manager Bud Black says Cashner just "wasn't feeling well" and the team decided to place him on the DL instead of just skip one start to make sure he recovers.
The Padres transferred right-hander Casey Kelly from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster.
