RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
