The San Diego Padres have placed right-hander Andrew Cashner on the 15-day disabled with a strained right latissimus dorsi, reports Jeff Sanders of the North County Times.

To replace Cashner on their roster, the Padres have recalled right-hander Brad Brach from Triple-A.

Cashner has worked both in relief and as a starter for the Padres this season. After a successful start against the Houston Astros (6 1/3 IP, 2 ER), Cashner lasted only 28 pitches in Tuesday’s contest against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Over his 30 appearances, including three starts, Cashner has posted an ERA and WHIP of 3.44 and 1.282 with 11.0 SO/9 and 4.7 BB/9.

Right-hander Ross Ohlendorf is slated to make Cashner’s scheduled start Sunday.

Brach was optioned to Triple-A last week to make room for Cashner. The 26-year-old has maintained an ERA and WHIP of 4.23 and 1.590 over his 27 2/3 innings of work for the Padres this season. He’s posted marks of 2.79 and 1.241 over his 10 appearances for the club’s Triple-A affiliate.
