  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Takes tough-luck loss

    Irvin (6-9) yielded one run on five hits over eight innings Monday, striking out six and taking a loss against the Angels. After serving up a solo homer to Luis Rengifo in the first inning, Irvin locked in and dominated the rest of the way. He allowed just one more runner to reach scoring position and tied his season best with 16 whiffs. The 28-year-old lefty has thrown at least six innings while giving up fewer than three earned runs in seven consecutive starts; he lowered his ERA from 3.58 to 2.92 during that span. Irvin will carry an 84:23 K:BB into his projected road match with Houston this weekend.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Sleeper pitchers for Week 19 (Aug. 8-14)

    A trip to Minute Maid Park to end the week may expose Irvin's fly-ball tendencies, but he begins the week against a bad Angels offense at home, where he's been money. It's also worth pointing out he has a 2.03 ERA in six starts since the beginning of July.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Win streak snapped

    Irvin (6-8) took the loss during Tuesday's 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Angels, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts in six innings. Irvin got off to a rocky start by permitting a leadoff David Fletcher home run and an unearned run as a result of two errors in the second inning, and surrendered a third run on two hits in the fourth inning to fall into a three-run hole. The loss snapped a three-start win streak for the 28-year-old, who's posted a 2.25 ERA across three second-half starts. Irvin's 3.04 ERA on the season ranks 21st in MLB and he's the only pitcher in the top 25 with fewer than eight wins. He's tentatively scheduled to pitch again Sunday at home against the Giants.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Sleeper pitchers for Week 18 (Aug. 1-7)

    Irvin is riding a streak of five straight quality starts that has brought his ERA down to 3.05. Most of his success has come at home, but the Angels, who he'll be visiting this week, play in a big ballpark themselves and have been an absolute horror show offensively.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Goes seven for win

    Irvin (6-7) gave up two earned runs on four hits and a walk while striking out four over seven innings to earn the win in a 4-2 victory over the Astros on Wednesday. Irvin continued his excellent string of performances in July with seven strong innings at home Wednesday. He now has a 1.85 ERA in five starts this month, with three of the starts coming against the division-rival Astros and one against the strong Blue Jays lineup. It is worth keeping an eye on Irvin to see if he can maintain his breakout 2022 campaign down the stretch, as his peripheral numbers and batted-ball metrics suggest that he is due for some regression. Irvin has a low 6.1 K/( and ranks in the bottom-third of most Statcast categories, including barrel rate. Irvin is tentatively expected to make his next start on the road against the Angels on Wednesday.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Possible waiver wire pickups

    I'll level with you and say I don't think Irvin is good. His 3.05 ERA is good, and his past five outings have certainly been good, the latest Wednesday giving him five straight quality starts in which he's allowed two earned runs or fewer. But what is he actually good at? Not missing bats. Not limiting hard contact, as evidenced by his 4.51 xERA. He limits walks, sure, but more than anything, I think his success is a product of good home run luck. He's allowed just 12 in 18 starts despite a high fly-ball rate. Ah, but you know how many of those have come at home? Exactly one, which would account for his 1.73 ERA there. Fly balls are actually a benefit if they stay in the yard, and RingCentral Coliseum might just be big enough to keep Irvin useful as long as you're only using him there.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Strikes out eight in win

    Irvin (5-7) gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out eight over seven-plus innings to earn the win in a 5-4 victory over the Rangers on Friday. Irvin was excellent in his 17th start of the season. He got nine outs against the first nine batters faced and then strung together another three perfect innings from the fifth to the seventh. The eight strikeouts are a nice plus from a pitcher who entered Friday with a 6.1 K/9, although it appeared that Irvin was given the benefit of the doubt on a number of inside strike calls. Irvin now boasts a solid 3.08 ERA and 1.07 WHIP on the season. With a BABIP of .258 and an xERA of 4.50, it will be worth watching if his ratios regress. Irvin is tentatively expected to make his next start against the Astros next week.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Spins six innings of one run ball

    Irvin (4-7) earned the win during Friday's 5-1 victory over Houston, allowing one run on three hits and one walk with four strikeouts in six innings. The lefty was locked in a pitcher's duel with Jose Urquidy until Irvin surrendered a run in the fifth inning following a leadoff Chas McCormick double. Oakland eventually rallied to give the 28-year-old his second win in three starts, during which he's pitched to a 1.80 ERA across 20 innings. Irvin concludes the first half on a high note and possesses a 3.21 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 62 strikeouts in 95.1 innings across 16 starts.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Quality start in loss

    Irvin (3-7) allowed two runs on five hits and struck out two without walking a batter over six innings, but he took the loss Sunday versus the Astros. Irvin gave up an RBI double to Alex Bregman in the first inning and an RBI single to Korey Lee in the fifth. With the Athletics' lack of run support, that was enough to send Irvin to his fifth loss in his last six starts. The southpaw has posted three quality starts in that span and still boasts respectable ratios in the form of a 3.32 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 58:18 K:BB across 89.1 innings this year. His next start is also projected to be against the Astros, as he lines up to pitch next weekend in Houston.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Twirls gem Monday

    Irvin (3-6) allowed a run on four hits and struck out four without walking a batter in eight innings to earn the win Monday over the Blue Jays. Irvin got through the order perfectly the first time through, but the Blue Jays tagged him for a run and two hits in the fourth inning. He didn't allow a baserunner past first after that, finishing strong with 95 pitches (67 strikes) in a dominant outing. This was the sixth time in 14 starts Irvin's limited opponents to one run or fewer, and it's the second start in a row he's covered at least seven innings. The southpaw has a 3.35 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 56:18 K:BB through 83.1 innings overall. He'll look to keep rolling in another tough projected matchup against the Astros this weekend.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Allows five runs in loss

    Irvin (2-6) took the loss Wednesday against the Yankees after surrendering five runs on six hits with five strikeouts and one walk in seven innings. The 28-year-old produced his longest outing of the season Wednesday, but a two-run homer from Aaron Judge in the first inning and a three-run shot from Giancarlo Stanton in the third saddled the lefty with the loss. Irvin has lost his past four starts and tentatively projects for a tough matchup with the Blue Jays early next week.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Takes fifth loss Friday

    Irvin (2-5) took the loss in a defeat at the hands of the Royals on Friday, allowing three earned runs on seven hits and two walks while recording four strikeouts over 5.1 innings. Irvin once again pitched well enough to give his team a chance at victory, but Oakland's perpetually moribund offense put together yet another lackluster performance. The veteran left-hander was essentially done in by Edward Olivares, who tagged him for a pair of solo home runs. Irvin's 3.29 ERA, when contrasted with his 2-5 record, is a testament to how much of a tough-luck season it's been for him thus far, and he'll hope for a turnaround in his fortunes when he takes the mound again in an unenviable matchup against the Yankees next week.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Pitches well in loss

    Irvin (2-4) took the loss Saturday, allowing a run on three hits while striking out six and walking two across 6.1 innings. Irvin was pulled after allowing a Michael Taylor triple in the seventh inning. Taylor came around to score off Oakland reliever Domingo Acevedo thanks to a Ryan O'Hearn double, leaving Irvin with the earned run and the loss. The lefty pitched well enough to earn his fifth quality start of the year and bounced back well after allowing four earned runs in his last game. Irvin will take a 3.14 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Charged with loss Sunday

    Irvin (2-3) allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out three in 5.2 innings to take the loss in Sunday's game against the Guardians. Irvin had one of his worst starts of the season Sunday, as he gave up three runs in the first inning prior to allowing two more runs to come across in the bottom of the sixth. In spite of Sunday's lackluster results, the southpaw has been relatively effective this year, posting a 3.34 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 56.2 innings over his first 10 starts. Irvin has lasted at least five innings in every start to begin the year and tentatively lines up to make his next start at home Saturday against the Royals.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Solid outing

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk over 5.1 innings against Atlanta. He struck out six. Irvin pitched well Tuesday, leaving the game tied 2-2 after allowing a run in both the first and third innings. Even after limiting the damage to two early runs, Irvin did not get any offensive support beyond two first-inning runs, though he did avoid a loss. The six strikeouts were a season high for the lefty, who takes a 3.00 ERA into his next outing.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Falls short of quality start

    Irvin didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Astros, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out two. The southpaw tossed 57 of 89 pitches for strikes before getting the hook one out short of his fourth straight quality start. Irvin isn't dominant, but when healthy he's been getting the job done for an Oakland squad in need of stability in the rotation, working at least five innings in seven straight trips to the mound without giving up more than three earned runs in any of them. He'll carry a 2.96 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 28:11 K:BB through 45.2 innings into his next outing.

  • 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.
