  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Yields three runs in no-decision

    Irvin allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits over 6.1 innings in Friday's loss to Texas. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

    Irvin coughed up a two-run single to Jonah Heim in the first inning before firing five straight shutout frames, including a stretch in which he retired 10 straight batters. He was then charged with another run in the seventh after he was removed from the game. The 28-year-old southpaw has allowed six runs (five earned) on 14 hits and two walks over his last two outings after a stint on the injured list. Irvin will carry a 3.15 ERA into his projected home outing against the Astros next week.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Allows 10 baserunners in return

    Irvin (2-2) picked up the loss, allowing three runs (two earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out four in six innings in a 4-1 defeat Sunday against the Angels.

    After coming off the injured list (shoulder) to make the start, it could have been a lot worse for Irvin. He managed to pitch around trouble throughout the outing, allowing three baserunners in three different innings. The lefty has pitched at least five innings in all of his starts this season and has a 2.94 ERA. However, with 22 strikeouts and five homers allowed in 33.2 innings, there are plenty of signs that he's received more than his fair share of luck in the first quarter of the season. His next start will likely come at the end of next week against Texas.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Reinstated for Sunday's start

    Irvin (shoulder) was activated from the 15-day injured list ahead of his start against the Angels on Sunday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    The left-hander was already confirmed as the starter for Sunday's series finale, but he's now officially back on the active roster. Irvin has been sidelined the past three weeks by shoulder tendinitis, but he's ready to rejoin the rotation after a one-game rehab assignment with Single-A Stockton. The 28-year-old covered five innings during the rehab outing, so any workload limitations should be relatively minor.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Starting Sunday

    Irvin (shoulder) will start Sunday against the Angels, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Irvin has missed all of May due to shoulder tendinitis. He threw five innings in a rehab start Tuesday, striking out six batters while allowing one run on five hits and no walks, so it looks as though he should be ready for something close to a full workload Sunday.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Ready to rejoin big-league rotation

    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.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Rehab outing set

    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.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Bullpen session on tap

    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.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Slated for side session

    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.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Dealing with shoulder tendonitis

    Irivin, who was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday, is dealing with shoulder tendonitis, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    He will reportedly resume throwing in a few days and could return when first eligible in mid-May. Zach Logue replaced him in the rotation Friday against the Twins.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Lands on injured list

    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.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Awaiting MRI results

    Irvin underwent an MRI on his left shoulder Wednesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Irvin is being evaluated for shoulder soreness, and it's not a major surprise that evaluation includes an MRI. The 28-year-old's next turn through the rotation comes up Friday at Minnesota, and his availability for that start is questionable at best.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Managing shoulder soreness

    Manager Mark Kotsay said Wednesday that Irvin is being evaluated due to shoulder soreness, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    While the left-hander hasn't yet been ruled out for Friday's start against Minnesota, Zach Logue has been added to the Athletics' taxi squad in case Irvin is unable to pitch. Kotsay said the Athletics will decide Thursday whether Irvin is able to take the mound during Friday's matchup, so he should tentatively be considered day-to-day.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Quality start against Guardians

    Irvin didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Guardians, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over six innings while striking out four.

    The southpaw dueled Shane Bieber to a 1-1 deadlock through six frames, as Irvin delivered his second quality start of the season on 90 pitches (64 strikes). His poor 15.9 percent strikeout rate is offset by a 49.4 percent groundball rate, and Irvin will take a 2.93 ERA and 1.16 WHIP into his next outing.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Superb in win

    Irvin (2-1) struck out four in five scoreless innings, allowing one hit and two walks while earning the win in a 2-0 victory Sunday over Texas.

    The lone hit against Irvin was a single by Marcus Semien to leadoff the game. He scattered two walks the rest of the way and left the game after throwing 87 pitches. The lefty has pitched at least five innings in all four starts, a rare accomplishment in 2022. With a 3.32 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP, Irvin has provided Oakland with better-than-expected production to start the season. His next start will likely be next weekend against Cleveland.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Five innings in no-decision

    Irvin didn't factor into the decision during Tuesday's 2-1 win over Baltimore, allowing one run on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts in five innings.

    Irving and Orioles starter Chris Ellis engaged in a low-scoring affair with Irvin's lone run allowed in the first inning putting him on the hook for the loss until Oakland scored two in the sixth. The 28-year-old has pitched well enough in his last two starts -- allowing four runs in 11.1 total innings -- but he lacks the strikeout upside to truly make an impact with a career 6.3 K/9 mark. He's tentatively scheduled to take the mound against Texas on Sunday for his next start.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Earns first win of season

    Irvin (1-1) earned the win after allowing three runs on five hits across 6.1 innings during Thursday's 6-3 win over the Rays. He registered two strikeouts and zero walks.

    Irvin was rolling heading into the seventh, but he gave up a leadoff double to Harold Ramirez and a two-run homer to Brandon Lowe two batters later, which ended his night. While Thursday's outing was certainly a bounce back from his first start of the season, the long ball continues to be an issue for Irvin. He's allowed four homers -- accounting for six of his seven earned runs -- through 11.2 innings so far this season.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Allows four runs in loss

    Irvin (0-1) took the loss against Philadelphia on Saturday, pitching 5.1 innings and allowing four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out four.

    Irvin struggled to keep the ball in the park in his first start of the campaign -- the Phillies teed off on him for three homers to account for all four of their runs. Two of those long balls came as part of a back-to-back set to start the sixth inning, leading to Irvin's removal soon thereafter. The southpaw will aim for better results in his second outing, which is expected to take place on the road against Tampa Bay next week.
