Suffers 14th loss
POakland Athletics
September 23, 2021
Irvin (10-14) pitched five innings and allowed three runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five to take the loss against Seattle on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Irvin kept the Mariners off the scoreboard for three innings, but he surrendered a pair of runs in the fourth and another in the fifth while receiving only one run of support from his offense. The southpaw gave up two long balls in the contest and has now surrendered eight homers over his past 25 innings. He has been relatively effective this season, placing ninth among qualified American League pitchers with a 3.99 ERA, but he has also lost an AL-high 14 games. Irvin will try to get back in the win column in his next start, which is tentatively slated to be a rematch against Seattle on Monday.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.

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.
