RotoWire News: Erlin (elbow) threw off a mound Friday and appears to be experiencing a smooth rehab process after Tommy John surgery, Padres multimedia analyst Bob Scanlan reports. (3/10/2017)

Profile: After three seasons of posting league-average or better FIPs, Erlin was set to possibly break out in 2016. Three appearances into the campaign, Erlin partially tore his UCL and missed the remainder of the season after Tommy John surgery. In 15 2/3 innings, he allowed as many home runs (three) as he issued walks. He had shown an improved K-BB% of 17.2 -- plenty good for a mid-rotation starter. He also had just a .218 batting average against, thanks in part to a .231 BABIP. But he saw his fastball velocity decline in every appearance, presumably due to the UCL. The Padres are hoping he's back around the All-Star break. Fantasy expectations should be tempered because often times, it isn't until the following season after TJ that a pitcher gets more back to normal. Being a lefty with decent velo and a three-pitch mix, Erlin will get a chance to pitch as long as he's healthy. But that's a big if at this stage. (Dustin Nosler)

The Quick Opinion: Erlin was part of the Padres' opening day roster and made three appearances before he suffered a partially torn UCL that required Tommy John surgery in May. There isn't much fantasy value for Erlin this season, but he might be a decent sleeper for deep, NL-only leagues for 2018.
