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.

The San Diego Padres recalled SP Robbie Erlin from Triple-A Tucson Wednesday, June 26, and optioned RP Brad Brach to Tucson in a corresponding move.

San Diego Padres SP Robbie Erlin will be called up to start Wednesday, June 26.
Fantasy Tip: Erlin was brought up earlier this season and struggled in his major league debut. He's worth a pickup in NL-only leagues while Clayton Richard (shoulder) is on the disabled list.

The San Diego Padres are open to trading SP Edinson Volquez at the trade deadline, even though they plan to limit the workloads of SPs Andrew Cashner and Robbie Erlin this year.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Ross, Smith and Wieland on your radar in NL-only leagues if the Padres trade one of their current starters.
