Erlin will start Thursday's game against the Nationals, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Erlin will fill the rotation spot vacated by Max Fried, who landed on the injured list with a back injury. Erlin has a 7.06 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 20:6 K:BB in 21.2 innings over six outings since being acquired by the Braves. He worked three innings of long relief Monday and is unlikely to have the workload of a traditional starter in his return to the rotation.
