Drafted in the 17th round (501st overall) by the Los Angeles Angels in 2021 (signed for $125,000)
Erla ranked as the No. 170 prospect in the 2020 class as a redshirt junior who took a step forward with his fastball velocity and posted a 1.04 ERA with impressive strikeout and walk rates over 26 innings. He was passed over in the five-round draft and made it back to campus where he has backed up from that 2020 performance. Erla posted a 3.50 ERA over 79.2 innings and 13 starts, with 80 strikeouts (9.0 K/9) and 30 walks (3.4 BB/9), but he allowed almost a hit per inning. His fastball still gets into the upper 90s, though he sits in the 91-94 mph range, and he has two fringy secondaries in a mid-80s slider and mid-80s changeup. Erla will turn 24 a month after the draft which could hurt him with teams that prioritize age.
