RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Erlin failed to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster, but he picked up a win in relief immediately upon his promotion in early April before taking the place of the injured Tyson Ross in the San Diego rotation. He pitched well in his first start before getting knocked around in his second outing, and the Padres placed him on the DL with an elbow strain which ultimately required Tommy John surgery in May. A finesse lefty, Erlin's early professional success hasn't translated since his first foray above Double-A in 2013. The former third-round pick would have had an opportunity to stick with the Padres last season given the slew of injuries to the team's pitching staff, but if he's healthy enough to return in 2017, he will probably be deployed in the bullpen as both his per-game and season workloads will be limited.

2016

Erlin ultimately failed to make the big league roster out of spring training and instead spent most of the season at Triple-A El Paso in the Pacific Coast League. He did away with his two-seam fastball and upped his usage of his changeup from 16.1% in 2014 to 21.8%, but his numbers were still underwhelming on the whole. Over 125.1 innings in El Paso, he posted a 5.60 ERA and allowed an alarming 22 home runs. He certainly wasn't pitching in favorable environments, but those numbers are still alarming. Erlin eventually joined the Padres in September and made three starts. Aside from a seven-run meltdown in Coors Field, he made his mark by closing the year allowing just two runs across back-to-back seven-inning outings. He figures to be in the mix for a rotation spot in 2016, but time will tell if the southpaw can put it all together and stick in the majors for a full season as a back-end starter.

2015

A former top pitching prospect, Erlin landed the No. 5 spot in the Padres’ rotation out of spring training last year, but early-season struggles were soon followed by his placement on the DL in mid-May with a sore left elbow. Initially expected to miss 2-to-3 starts, he was instead absent from the big leagues for nearly four months, a period that allowed Jesse Hahn and Odrisamer Despaigne to make inroads as starters at the highest level. In the end, Erlin’s lost season included a 4.99 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 46:15 K:BB in 61.1 innings with the Padres, which was fueled by an unsavory .332 BABIP. Erlin will compete with Despaigne, Brandon Morrow, and Matt Wisler for the final spot in the Padres' rotation during spring training.

2014

At 23 years old, Erlin is a former top starting pitching prospect but didn't live up to the billing in 2013, turning in an up-and-down campaign. He was particularly porous in 20 nods at Triple-A Tucson, with a 5.07 ERA and 84:43 K:BB ratio in 99.1 innings. Meanwhile, five spot performances with the Padres prior to a permanent callup on Aug. 28 were along the same lines, but the southpaw flashed his talent in five further outings to complete the season, twirling four quality starts during a stretch in which he posted a 24:7 K:BB across 32 frames. If he demonstrates similar progress in spring training, a starting role could be his in a rotation with a few spots perhaps up for grabs.

2013

After exploding onto the scene in 2010 in the Rangers' farm system and following it up with a highly productive 2011 campaign, Erlin's 2012 season with the Padres was a bit of a disappointment as he missed nearly three months due to an elbow strain. When he was healthy, he showed an elite ability to miss bats and limit walks to opposing batters. Later in the year, he showed he was past his elbow woes in the Arizona Fall League, where he struck out over a third of the batters he faced. At only 22 years old, Erlin is on the fast track to majors and should be monitored by all owners who have an interest in rising prospects.

2012

The young lefty was acquired by the Padres in the Mike Adams deal and could prove to be a valuable asset down the road. Prior to his arrival, he had posted a 2.74 ERA over almost three full minor league seasons, averaging a 9.75 K/9IP with just a 1.15 BB/9IP. Although he had some struggles in Double-A last season, he finished the year strong posting a 7.75 K/BB with a 1.38 ERA despite an outrageous .364 BABIP against in six starts. He'll need some more seasoning in the minors, but given the pitcher-friendly dimensions of Petco Park, he should be on your radar in keeper and dynasty leagues.

2011

In a Rangers organization littered with quality young arms, Erlin is one to grab now in keeper formats as he could rise quickly through the minors. At 20, he's a very polished left-hander with three good offerings. As his 125:17 K:BB ratio with Low-A Hickory suggests, he may not need long to make the leap to Double-A and put himself on the Rangers' radar in 2012. Look for Erlin to start the year at High-A Myrtle Beach with an eye toward a spin at Frisco during the second half.
