Cashner looks to build endurance in rehab start

SAN DIEGO -- Following a 24-pitch rehab outing for Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore, right-hander Andrew Cashner will take the mound for Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday for his second rehabilitation outing.

The Padres figure he will need at least one more rehab outing -- likely Monday with El Paso -- before returning to the Majors. Two things are vital here: that Cashner is healthy, of course, and that his endurance is built up to a point where the Padres' bullpen isn't overly taxed when he returns by having to work too many innings.

"I'll go back out and get into the swing of things," Cashner said. "Getting up and down four or five times, more than anything. Facing another lineup, keep turning it over, not walking guys, locating my fastball."
