RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Phil Irwin.

2013

Despite having little experience above Double-A and just average stuff, Irwin has a chance to make his major league debut in 2013. The right-hander spent most of 2012 with Altoona, where he crafted a 2.93 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 104.1 innings. An 83:17 K:BB ratio illustrates what Irwin is all about -- control. For his career, he sports a 5.13 K/BB mark. Irwin won three of four Triple-A starts late in the season and will likely start there in the spring, with a trip to PNC Park possibly lying in wait. While his command is top-notch, a mediocre repertoire decreases his shot at fantasy relevance.
