The San Diego Padres will be without Trevor Cahill for at least the next week after the club placed the right-hander on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday (retroactive to Sunday) with a right shoulder strain. The team recalled right-hander Kevin Quackenbush from Triple-A El Paso in a corresponding move.
Cahill, 29, is 3-2 with a 3.27 ERA in seven starts in his first season with the Padres. He went 4-4 with a 2.74 ERA in 65 2/3 innings out of the Cubs' bullpen last year.

Right-hander Jarred Cosart, who is 0-1 with a 3.24 ERA in three games (two starts) for San Diego this season, is the most likely candidate to start in place of Cahill on Thursday.
