Brach sent down to make room for Cashner
HOUSTON -- To clear space on the 25-man roster for Andrew Cashner, Thursday's starter, the Padres optioned right-hander Brad Brach to Triple-A Tucson.

Brach, 26, made 27 relief appearances for the Padres, going 0-1 with a 4.23 ERA in 27 2/3 innings. He last threw on Monday, pitching two scoreless innings in an 8-7 victory against the Astros.

"Like I told Brad last night, it's a process of becoming a Major League player," manager Bud Black said. "Just because you come up, that doesn't mean you're going to stay and settle into a 10-year career. There's learning points along the way."

The Padres' bullpen has been in a state of flux in recent days. On Wednesday, the team sent reliever Brad Boxberger down to Triple-A Tucson and recalled right-hander Nick Vincent.

"Brad will be back, just like a number of our relievers who have been sent out," Black said. "You'll see these names again in the Major Leagues."
