San Diego Padres SP Robbie Erlin said he's made positive strides with his curveball this spring. "The curve is feeling good. It's got really good spin. Now it's just a matter of getting the feel and repeating it," he said. "If I can mix that pitch in consistently, it could be something I can throw ahead in the count and keep hitters off balance." Erlin could start the year in the bullpen.
