The San Diego Padres placed C Nick Hundley on the paternity list Thursday, Aug. 15, and recalled C Chris Robinson from the minors in a corresponding move. Also, SP Jason Marquis (elbow) was moved to the 60-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Hundley will only be out a maximum of three games. Robinson and Rene Rivera will split the catching duties until then. They aren't worthy of addition in any fantasy format.

San Diego Padres SP Jason Marquis (elbow), who will undergo Tommy John surgery, plans to continue his career and pitch again. "I think, as of right now, he plans on pitching again," manager Bud Black said of the 34-year-old Marquis, who has been in the big leagues since 2000. "I think he wants to come back and compete." Marquis could have surgery as soon as next week.

San Diego Padres SP Jason Marquis (elbow) has a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow, and he'll need to have Tommy John surgery.
Fantasy Tip: Marquis will miss the rest of this season and most of next year, too. This opens the door for Tyson Ross to enter the rotation for the rest of the season.

San Diego Padres SP Jason Marquis (elbow) is dealing with serious ligament damage to his right ulnar collateral ligament, according to manager Bud Black.
Fantasy Tip: This doesn't sound good, and it's possible that we won't see Marquis back on the mound for the rest of the season. If Marquis is down for the count, expect Tyson Ross to enter the rotation.

The San Diego Padres have placed SP Jason Marquis (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right elbow. The move is retroactive to Saturday, July 20, although manager Bud Black said it is possible that he could miss more than the minimum 15 days. Marquis was looked at by the St. Louis Cardinals' team physician and will visit Cincinnati-based doctor Tim Kremchek for a second opinion. In a corresponding move, RP Miles Mikolas was recalled from Triple-A Tucson.

San Diego Padres manager Bud Black revealed his post-All-Star break starting rotation. SP Jason Marquis will start the first game of the road series against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, July 19, with SP Edinson Volquez working Saturday, July 20, and SP Eric Stults pitching Sunday, July 21.
Fantasy Tip: If you are in a fantasy league which plays during the short week, those pitchers can be used as you normally would.

The San Diego Padres have flip-flopped their weekend starters for the final two games of their series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. SP Jason Marquis will pitch Saturday, June 15, with SP Clayton Richard pitching Sunday, June 16.

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 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.
