Cashner long-ago eclipsed his career high for innings pitched in a season and will finish his season with Sunday's start.

The San Diego Padres plan to shut down starting pitcher Andrew Cashner following his start on Sunday, reports MLB.com's Corey Brock.

Cashner would have only one start remaining if the Padres allowed him to finish out the season. With no chance of making the playoffs, San Diego will allow his arm to get some early rest going into the offseason.

The 27-year-old Cashner is one of the Padres' most valuable assets moving forward after an excellent 2013 campaign. He has made 30 appearances this season, 25 of which were starts. Cashner has posted a 3.21 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the year. Prior to 2013, Cashner primarily worked as a reliever for the Padres.

After his start Sunday, Cashner will end up right around 175 innings pitched. Cashner's career-high for innings pitched in a year is just over 111, set in 2010.
