Manager Mark Kotsay said Wednesday that Irvin (shoulder) will be activated from the 15-day injured list to make his next start with the big club, but the Athletics have yet to determine which day he'll pitch, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. Irvin is getting the green light to rejoin the Athletics after he allowed one run while striking out six over five innings in a rehab start for Single-A Stockton on Tuesday. He could be available to start for the Athletics as soon as Sunday against the Angels, but Kotsay could opt to give him an extra day of rest and have him make his return to the rotation during next week's series in Seattle. Oakland already opened up a spot in the rotation for the lefty by optioning Zach Logue to Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday.
Irvin (shoulder) came away from Friday's bullpen session feeling healthy and is now slated to make a rehab start with Single-A Stockton on Tuesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. The left-hander has been making steady progress since being placed on the injured list with shoulder tendonitis May 5. If Irvin's start with the Ports goes well, he could be activated shortly thereafter.
Irvin (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Friday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Irvin successfully threw off flat ground Wednesday, and he's been cleared to resume mound work to close out the week. The southpaw has been on the injured list with shoulder tendonitis since May 5, but it's possible he'll be able to return to game action when he's first eligible next week.
Irvin (shoulder) is slated to throw a side session before the team determines the next step in his rehab process, the Associated Press reports. The southpaw went on the injured list Thursday with what was determined to be shoulder tendonitis. Irvin reportedly could return when first eligible later this month, so he may not require a rehab assignment if he can continue to demonstrate improvement in his throwing sessions.
Irvin (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Irvin has been dealing with shoulder soreness, and while no further diagnosis has been announced, he'll be out until at least mid-May. He delivered strong results early in the campaign, maintaining a 2.93 ERA and 1.16 WHIP across 27.2 innings. The team has not officially named a starter for Friday's game against the Twins to replace Irvin, though Zach Logue is the leading candidate.
