Updated: August 28, 2013

Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) – The San Diego Padres have recalled pitcher
Robbie Erlin from Triple-A Tucson to start Wednesday’s game against the
Arizona Diamondbacks.

Erlin, who will be taking the spot of the recently released Edinson Volquez,
hasn’t pitched for the Padres since getting rocked by Washington to the tune
of nine runs in four innings back on July 7.

The 22-year-old Erlin is 1-2 with a 7.15 ERA in six games (four starts) for
the Padres this season.

To make room on the roster for Erlin, San Diego optioned right-hander Brad
Boxberger to Tucson. He posted an 0-1 record with one save and a 3.07 ERA in
10 relief appearances.
