More from San Diego Padres

The Padres have called-up:

Wisler will not be activated or added to the 40-man roster, as he is here to observe and learn from the veteran pitchers. Wisler has also reached his innings limit for the year and will be expected to be the Padres No. 5 starter next season.

Alvarez, Garces and Campos are expected to compete for a spot in the Padres bullpen next season. Alvarez is the most intriguing of the three and has the potential to be the Padres closer of the future.

Wieland will be making his first start for the Padres since 2012 due to Tommy John surgery. Erlin began the season in the Padres rotation, until a sore left elbow landed on the disabled list.
