Padres | Robbie Erlin coming up

The San Diego Padres are expected to call up SP Robbie Erlin from Triple-A Tucson.

Fantasy Tip: One of the most polished walk-suppressing arms in the minors, Erlin has stumbled a little early on in 2013. It's probably an adjustment in his first Class AAA work while also trying to regain form after last year's elbow tendonitis. He's aggressive in the strike zone, and his stuff plays above his 5-foot-11, 190-pound frame.

How long will he stay in the bigs? PETCO Park still isn't a hitter's haven, which should aid his deep-mixed value as a speculative add. There's not an immediate rotation spot open, but he could work his way into there, if not bump Andrew Cashner immediately. That's not likely, though; Erlin may just serve as depth initially and command patience from those who take a stab.
