Update on the new guys
Robbie Erlin and Joe Wieland, acquired from Texas in exchange for Mike Adams, have each made one start for the Padres’ Double-A San Antonio affiliate, helping the Missions to a three-game sweep over Corpus Christi. Erlin is set to make his second start today.
In their first starts, the two newest Padres combined to allow one run over 12.0 innings, surrendering just eight hits and one walk while striking out 13. Erlin tossed 6.0 shutout frames with six K’s while Wieland worked 6.0 innings of one-run ball with seven K’s.
