Erlin (elbow) avoided arbitration by signing a one-year contract with the Padres on Friday, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Erlin is still recovering from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last May that caused him to miss the entire season. He should be fully operational come spring training. With this deal, it's clear that the Padres can see a role for the 27-year-old.
