San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner was activated from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, May 24, and started that evening's game against the San Francisco Giants. He allowed three runs on four hits in six innings of work. RP Kevin Quackenbush was demoted to Class AAA El Paso in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Cashner's stay on the DL didn't fundamentally change how he has been pitching this season. His control remains spotty, and he still hasn't worked more than six innings in a start. Until something changes for the better, Cashner isn't worth starting in most fantasy leagues.

San Diego Padres CL Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) may land on the 15-dayd disabled list with a sore right shoulder. The team could wait a few more days before making a decision.
Fantasy Tip: Kevin Quackenbush is expected to fill in for Benoit. Pick him up in all leagues if you need a short-term saves fix. Dale Thayer and Alex Torres could also fill in on occasion and are NL-only targets.

The San Diego Padres activated 3B Chase Headley (calf) from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, May 10. San Diego optioned RP Kevin Quackenbush to Class AAA El Paso.
Fantasy Tip: He'll probably start in his first action back. Despite his disappointing start to the season, he's a decent bounceback candidate, especially in deep leagues, that'll contribute double digits perhaps in both homers and steals the rest of the way.
