Padres manager Bud Black said after Thursday's game that Robbie Erlin has probablyy earned another start.
Erlin held the Phillies to just one run over six innings while making a start in place of the injured Tyson Ross (general soreness). The Pads haven't officially shut Ross down yet, but even if they don't they could still give Erlin another shot. The left-hander would likely face the Rockies at home, making him a nice streaming option. Sep 19 - 8:48 AM

Robbie Erlin limited the Phillies to one run over six innings Thursday in a 7-3 victory.

Erlin got this start in place of Tyson Ross, who is battling general soreness. The 23-year-old left-hander made it count, striking out four and walking none as he makes a case to be considered for next year's rotation. We already know Erlin has taken well to Petco Park, where he came into tonight with a 2.53 ERA in nine outings. This was Erlin's first start since May 17. He's struggled with elbow soreness, but should be just fine through the end of the season. Ross' availability will determine whether Erlin (4-4, 4.53 ERA) gets another start.

Robbie Erlin will start on Thursday against the Phillies.

He'll get the ball in place of Tyson Ross, who is battling general soreness. At the moment, it appears Erlin will be in line for just the one start, but it's possible Ross' absence will wind up lasting longer. Erlin holds a 4.89 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 10 games -- eight starts -- for the Padres this season.

Padres activated LHP Robbie Erlin from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A El Paso.

Robbie Erlin (elbow) pitched well in his second minor league rehab start for Double-A San Antonio on Friday, allowing three hits and a walk over 2 1/3 scoreless innings.

Erlin punched out one in the outing, throwing 25 of his 42 pitches for strikes. He still will require at least another rehab start or two, but is on track to return to the Padres rotation in mid-August barring any setbacks.

Robbie Erlin (elbow) will move his rehab assignment up to Double-A San Antonio on Friday.

Jul 6 - 10:43 AM

Padres transferred LHP Robbie Erlin from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Jun 26 - 4:10 PM

Robbie Erlin (elbow) said Monday that he's about two weeks away from throwing off a mound.

Erlin resumed throwing a week ago, long-tossing from 110 feet on Monday in his most recent session. The left-hander has been out since mid-May with left elbow soreness and is probably looking at the end of July before he can realistically rejoin the Padres' rotation.

Robbie Erlin will resume a throwing program Tuesday after the latest MRI on his left elbow came back clean.

It's obviously good news, but Erlin is still three weeks away from rehab games. The left-hander has been out since mid-May with left elbow soreness but should be able to rejoin the Padres' rotation around the All-Star break if all goes well.

Jun 14 - 4:44 PM

Robbie Erlin is expected to have a follow-up MRI on his sore left elbow this week.

Erlin has been on the disabled list since mid-May with elbow discomfort. "He was examined, and I think they want to have one more MRI, one more look to compare it to where he was like three weeks ago when they did it the last time," manager Bud Black said Wednesday. "So they're going to compare that and then see if he's good to go as far as getting back on a throwing program." Erlin was only expected to miss a couple of starts, but he remains sidelined indefinitely.
Jun 12 - 10:04 AM

Padres placed LHP Robbie Erlin on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 18, with left elbow soreness.

It's not clear when Erlin began feeling the soreness, as he spun 6 1/3 scoreless innings in his previous start over the weekend. However, the good news is that he's only expected to miss 2-3 starts. Tim Stauffer will take Erlin's spot in the rotation.
