May 15, 2021
Irvin gave up one run on five hits and two walks across 6.2 innings during Saturday's 5-4 loss at Minnesota. He had two strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.
ANALYSIS
The left-hander surrendered a run during the first inning but otherwise blanked the Twins to deliver his fourth straight quality start, though the bullpen surrendered four runs during the eighth inning to squander the victory. Irvin has pitched well in 2021 with a 3.02 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 39:8 K:BB over 48.2 innings.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
With a number of the Phillies' primary rotation options underperforming, Irvin got his chance to prove that his 2.57 ERA for Triple-A Lehigh Valley in 2018 would translate to the big leagues despite mediocre stuff. In 41.2 innings, the stuff concerns won out, as the lefty stumbled to a 5.83 ERA. He couldn't strike out enough batters (17.1%) or keep the ball on the ground (34.4% groundball rate). His 7.2% walk rate was good, but not at the elite level necessary to make up for those deficiencies. With a fastball that averaged less than 90 mph and no above-average secondary weapons, it's hard to see Irvin making a particularly strong push for the fifth starter spot this season, as good control can only get a pitcher so far on its own. Lefties managed a .935 OPS off of him, so if he does move to the bullpen, it may only be in a mop-up role. There's not much here barring a sudden repertoire change.
