Erlin was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Wednesday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Erlin made three appearances during his most recent run with the Padres, compiling a 1.80 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 5:1 K:BB across five innings. Eric Lauer, who is scheduled to start Friday against the Cubs, was reinstated from the bereavement list in a corresponding move.
Erlin was recalled from Triple-A El Paso on Tuesday.
Erlin struggled with the Chihuahuas after being demoted June 16, posting a 6.14 ERA with six punchouts over 7.1 frames, but he'll see another opportunity out of the bullpen with San Diego. Phil Maton was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Erlin was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Sunday.
Erlin had a rough outing Saturday with six runs allowed over 2.1 innings, and he'll make his way to El Paso in favor of a fresh arm. Brad Wieck was called up from Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Erlin (0-1) allowed one run on three hits with two strikeouts and one walk across two innings while taking a loss against the Blue Jays on Sunday.
Starting on short notice because Chris Paddack was scratched with a neck issue, Erlin was never expected to pitch deep into this game. His 41 pitches was his most in an appearance since April 9; it was just unfortunate it took him that many pitches to record six outs. Erlin didn't pitch poorly, but he took the loss since he exited with a deficit, and the Padres never tied the game again. Erlin is 0-1 with a 3.70 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 28 strikeouts in 24.1 innings over 16 appearances this season.
Erlin will start Sunday's series finale against the Blue Jays, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Scheduled starter Chris Paddack was a late scratch due to a neck issue, pushing Erlin into the starting role. Erlin has a 3.63 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 26:4 K:BB this season, but will likely have a limited pitch count given he hasn't exceeded 40 pitches in an appearance since April 9. It seems likely to be a bullpen day for the Padres, while the newly recalled Luis Perdomo could be used to help cover some innings.
Erlin was called up from High-A Lake Elsinore on Sunday.
Erlin's stay in the minors was likely always expected to be a brief one, as he was sent to the team's nearby High-A affiliate rather than heading all the way to Texas and Triple-A El Paso. He'll replace Phil Maton, who was optioned to El Paso in a corresponding move.
Erlin was sent to High-A Lake Elsinore on Thursday rather than Triple-A El Paso as initially reported.
The assignment is clearly not purely for baseball reasons, as Erlin hasn't played at the High-A level since 2011. The reason is likely geographical, as the Padres can have Erlin on hand in southern California rather than all the way out in Texas. That could suggest that his return to the big leagues is imminent.
Erlin will be optioned to Triple-A El Paso prior to Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
The Padres will temporarily add a sixth member to the starting rotation in Pedro Avila, and Erlin will be demoted to make room on the 25-man roster. Erlin has a 4.32 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 9:2 K:BB over 8.1 innings out of the bullpen through the first two weeks of the season.
Erlin is expected to open the season in the Padres' bullpen, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Erlin entered camp with what appeared to be a great chance at making the Padres' rotation, but he appears to have removed himself from consideration by giving up 11 runs on 14 hits and four walks through his first 9.1 innings of Cactus League play. When deployed in relief last season, Erlin thrived to the tune of a 2.05 ERA and 0.80 WHIP in 52.2 innings, so he could be tabbed for a prominent role out of the bullpen to begin 2019. Erlin's demotion probably carries more important fantasy implications for the likes of young starters Chris Paddack and Logan Allen, who now both have greater chances of cracking the season-opening rotation with another arm removed from the competition.
Erlin and the Padres agreed to a one-year, $1.45 million deal Wednesday, avoiding arbitration, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Erlin made 12 starts and 27 relief appearances for the Padres last season, finishing with a modest 4.21 ERA. His 3.31 FIP suggests room for positive regression, however, earned on the back of a sparkling 2.7 percent walk rate. He lines up as a likely rotation member heading into the upcoming season.
Erlin allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits while striking out four over five innings in Tuesday's loss to the Giants. He did not factor into the decision.
Erlin turned in a solid performance Tuesday, with an unearned run in the first and a solo home run to Hunter Pence in the fifth being the only marks on his ledger. The southpaw has continued to struggle going deep into outings, falling short of six innings in all but one of his 12 starts. Barring a change of plans, Erlin's 2018 season is likely over. He'll close the campaign with a 4.21 ERA and 88:12 K:BB over 109 innings in 39 appearances.
Erlin (4-7) got the win Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings against the Giants.
Erlin allowed a three-run double with two outs in the second inning to opposing pitcher Chris Stratton, but he was able to blank the San Francisco bats the rest of the way. The lefty has made it through six full innings just once all season, and now carries a 4.33 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 84:12 K:BB across 104 innings. He'll take on the Giants again next time out in San Francisco on Tuesday.
Erlin (3-7) had a solid start in a loss to the Rangers on Friday, going 5.1 innings and allowing two runs (one earned) on six hits while striking out six.
It was a nice rebound for Erlin after he'd allowed 18 runs over his last 18 innings, encompassing four starts. He's now lowered his ERA to 4.27 to go with a solid 1.14 WHIP on the season. Erlin will take the hill against the Giants on Wednesday.
Erlin (3-6) took the loss Saturday against the Reds, allowing seven runs on eight hits across three innings.
Erlin didn't issue a walk or record a strikeout in this one. The southpaw actually retired the Reds in order in the first and third innings, but a seven-run second inning -- capped by a Joey Votto grand slam -- left him with his third straight losing decision. Erlin now has a lackluster 6.09 ERA and 25 strikeouts across seven starts (34 innings) since joining the rotation at the beginning of August. Next up is a home start against the Rangers.
Erlin (3-5) allowed four earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven across 5.1 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Rockies.
Erlin had no trouble getting through three innings but allowed the first four batters to reach base in the fourth inning to account for three of his earned runs. His last start followed a similar pattern: He had allowed only three baserunners heading into the fifth inning against the Dodgers on Sunday but went on to surrender four earned runs. That isn't particularly surprising given Erlin's role has been predominantly out of the bullpen this season, though it does call into question his potential effectiveness as a traditional starter, at least for the remainder of this season.
Erlin (3-4) allowed four earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out three across 4.2 innings to take the loss Sunday against the Dodgers.
Erlin had allowed only three baserunners heading into the fifth inning, and retired the first two batters he faced in the frame. However, things unraveled quickly from there as he allowed the next six batters he faced to reach base, with a double and home run allowed to consecutive batters causing most of the damage. His season-long numbers -- Erlin has a 3.69 ERA and 1.07 WHIP -- reflect an effective pitcher, however he has a 6.43 ERA across the seven starts he's received this season.
Erlin (3-3) struck out six and walked zero in a win over the Rockies on Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits in five innings.
Making his fourth consecutive start -- and sixth on the year -- Erlin recorded a season-high six strikeouts and was relieved after throwing just 60 pitches (42 for strikes). The lefty has a 3.46 ERA in 33 appearances and has registered 65 strikeouts against just eight walks in 80.2 innings this season. Should he remain in the rotation he'll next face off against the Dodgers in a start in Los Angeles.
Erlin didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's loss to the Angels, allowing two runs on eight hits while striking out two over six innings.
It was a solid enough outing for Erlin, who, despite striking out just two and allowing eight hits (all singles), delivered a third straight start with two or fewer earned runs and either zero or one walk. The lefty has served primarily out of the bullpen for San Diego this season, but with Eric Lauer (forearm) on the shelf, Erlin appears to be in line for another turn through the rotation, which would come Tuesday in Colorado.
Erlin will start Wednesday's game against the Angels.
Though the Padres recently added a pair of prospects to the rotation in Brett Kennedy and Jacob Nix, Erlin won't be exiled to the bullpen just yet with the Friars still down another regular rotation member in Eric Lauer (forearm), who remains on the disabled list. Lauer has resumed throwing off flat ground but has yet to progress to facing hitters, so it looks likely that Erlin will pick up at least another start beyond Wednesday's. In his two outings since rejoining the San Diego rotation, Erlin has covered five frames both times, giving up five runs (three earned) and posting a cumulative 7:2 K:BB.
Erlin surrendered four runs (two earned) on seven hits and one walk while striking out three over five innings. He didn't factor into the decision Thursday against Milwaukee.
Erlin gave up a run in the first, followed by three more in the fourth prior to exiting with 85 pitches (57 strikes). The 27-year-old has made just four starts this season, as he's served primarily as a relief pitcher. He sports a 3.36 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 57 strikeouts across 69.2 innings. It's unclear if Erlin will stick in the rotation moving forward, with Eric Lauer (forearm) set to return from the disabled list in the near future, and Jacob Nix receiving a promotion from Triple-A El Paso.
