San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross (shoulder), who missed 14 games with a subluxation of his left shoulder, will continue pitching out of the bullpen until he's healthy enough to swing a bat again. Once he can, he'll jump back into the starting rotation. "We still see him as a starting pitcher," said manager Bud Black. "But that will be left shoulder-related and whether he's physically able to do that. Right now, his strength is improving. In due time, he has to get in a cage."
Fantasy Tip: Ross has struggled with command in his career, but late last season he showed ground-ball rates that gave optimism for his future. A move to SD made him even more intriguing. Clayton Richard (illness) will return to the rotation soon, so it's unknown who exactly Ross would replace in the starting five when he's healthy. Jason Marquis or Eric Stults might be in jeopardy if they aren't pitching well by then.

San Diego Padres SP Clayton Richard (illness) lost 12 pounds while dealing with an intestinal virus that he picked up around two weeks ago. "He's sick," manager Bud Black said. "He's getting a little better, then he sort of digresses, then he gets a little better. It's more than just how you get a virus, you throw up, you have diarrhea, two or three days later, you're a little weak, then you start gaining on it." Black thinks Richard's illness has affected his pitching. SP Tyson Ross will pitch out of the bullpen as the team will go with a four-man rotation with two off days in the next two weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Richard can most likely be dropped in most mixed leagues. Don't lose sight of Ross in deep mixed leagues if he gets another shot at a starting rotation post later this year.

San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner will make the start against the San Francisco Giants Friday, April 26, and manager Bud Black foresees Cashner staying in the rotation for the long term, based on his performance. Cashner is expected to throw 80-90 pitches Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Cashner is essentially taking Tyson Ross' (shoulder) rotation spot, but the important part is that Black and the coaching staff are completely open to keeping Cashner, one of their better strikeout-inducing pitchers, in the rotation. Jason Marquis or Eric Stults may lose their rotation spots when Ross returns, or Ross could be sent to a long-relief role. The bottom line here, though, is that Cashner should now be owned in all formats now that he has a rotation spot once again.

Assuming he is well enough, San Diego Padres SP Clayton Richard (illness) could make his next start against the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday, April 23.

Richard was unable to make his scheduled start against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, April 20, after coming down with a stomach virus.

San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross won the No. 5 starter battle because he had a sound spring and the Padres want to ease Andrew Cashner into action via the bullpen. Early in camp, Ross worked with pitching coach Darren Balsley to change his stride during his delivery to help his pitches stay lower in the strike zone. At one point, Ross had a run of 15 1/3 scoreless innings in spring ball. The Padres probably will cap Cashner's innings this year at somewhere between 150 and 160.
Fantasy Tip: Ross has long boasted potential for more strikeouts and better consistency, so this looks like a sound opportunity for him to step into deep-league relevance, even if only for a short stretch. Expect Cashner, whose thumb looks to have healed, to be the first man up if a rotation spot clears. In deep mixed leagues, he's still worth monitoring or stashing; he should still provide plenty of K's as a reliever.
