Mariners' Phillip Ervin: Losing playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

Out of the lineup for the fourth time in five games, Ervin no longer looks to be locked into an everyday role. He's reached base at an acceptable .341 clip since being scooped up off waivers from the Reds earlier this month, but he's struck out 27.3 percent of the time and hasn't hit for much power (three doubles, no home runs).

Mariners' Phillip Ervin: Productive day in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks, two runs and an RBI in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

Ervin hasn't taken long to make a splash with the Mariners after Seattle claimed him off waivers from the Reds earlier this month. Through his first eight games with the club, Ervin has reached base at a .385 clip while smacking three doubles. He'll pick up his fifth consecutive start in right field Monday in the first game of the Mariners' doubleheader with the Athletics, batting seventh in the series opener.

Mariners' Phillip Ervin: On base twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin went 1-for-2 with a walk in a loss to the Giants on Wednesday.

Ervin hit out of the bottom of the order while drawing the start in right field and hit safely for the first time since his team debut Saturday. The 28-year-old has seen regular playing time in the brief period since his arrival, but Ervin will likely need to give his current .104/.246/.125 line a serious boost soon to continue seeing the same number of opportunities over what remains of the regular season.

Mariners' Phillip Ervin: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin isn't in Tuesday's lineup against the Giants.

Ervin started in the past three games and went 1-for-10 with a double, one run and two strikeouts. He'll get a breather Tuesday as Jose Marmolejos shifts to right field with Shed Long starting in left.

Mariners' Phillip Ervin: Contributes in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin, who was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Thursday, went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in a win over the Rangers on Saturday.

Ervin contributed in his Mariners debut, with his eighth-inning two-bagger plating Dee Strange-Gordon to close out the scoring on the night for Seattle. The 28-year-old outfielder has a more successful body of work against southpaws thus far in his career, but manager Scott Servais notably opted to give Ervin his first start despite right-hander Kyle Gibson toeing the rubber as the starter for the Rangers on Saturday.

Mariners' Phillip Ervin: Claimed by Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin was claimed off waivers by the Mariners on Thursday.

He was designated for assignment by the Reds last week. Ervin is known as versatile defensive outfielder who struggles against righties (career 75 wRC+, .228/.300/.372 line) but excels against lefties (120 wRC+, .290/.356/.490 line). Once he passes intake testing, he would likely occupy a short-side platoon role.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin was designated for assignment by the Reds on Friday.

Ervin tallied just three hits over 35 at-bats this season, so the Reds decided to remove him from the roster and risk losing him on waivers. While Ervin has struggled in 2020, he is 28 years old and owns a career .846 OPS against left-handers, so he could garner interest from several clubs.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Gets start in series opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin will man center field and bat sixth Monday agains the Brewers, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

With southpaw Brett Anderson twirling for Milwaukee, the lefty-hitting Shogo Akiyama will retreat to the bench to clear a spot in the outfield for Ervin, who is starting for only the second time in 12 games. Ervin owns a career 124 wRC+ against lefties, but he hasn't found much success in those matchups early on this season, going 2-for-17 with three walks.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Leading off in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin will lead off and play left field in Friday's Opening Day game against the Tigers.

How exactly the playing time will break down in a crowded Reds outfield this season remains to be seen. It looks as though the right-handed Ervin will be preferred to lefties Shogo Akiyama and Jesse Winker in left field with a southpaw on the mound like Tigers' Opening Day starter Matthew Boyd. It's not clear if he'll play often enough against righties to have broader fantasy relevance, but the fact that he's leading off Friday is at least a good sign for his value in deeper leagues. He owns a career .907 OPS against lefties compared to a .687 mark against righties, making him an excellent fit for a platoon role.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Near roster lock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin is a near lock to make the Reds' initial 30-man roster when the season begins, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

This was already assumed back in March, when Ervin was playing well and Aristides Aquino was struggling, but the disclosure that Aquino will train at the Reds' secondary complex over the next three weeks cemented Ervin's spot. It helps that he's a right-handed bat when many of the Reds' other hitters bat lefty.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Roster spot still looks good
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin remains a good bet to win a roster spot with the Reds whenever baseball resumes play after hitting .409/.480/.773 in spring training, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.

Even with the Reds having a crowded outfield, Ervin benefits from having the ability to play all three outfield spots, and the Reds would rather he be a reserve on the big league club than someone like Aristides Aquino, who they'd rather see play every day down in Triple-A Louisville.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Projected Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin is projected to make the Reds' Opening Day roster, though he's not in line for a starting slot, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Rosecrans predicts that Aristides Aquino will begin the year in Triple-A, in part because he has options and in part because he needs more regular at-bats there. Ervin, on the other hand, is someone they are comfortable using as a reserve.

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Sitting in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reds' Phillip Ervin: Posts walk-off homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ervin went 1-for-4 with a solo walk-off home run and a walk during the 4-3 extra-innings victory against the Phillies on Thursday.

While the 27-year-old has played in 75 games, he's only recorded 169 at-bats this year. He's made the most of his opportunities, though, posting a .296 average and .521 slugging percentage. Ervin has slumped a little lately, going 7-for-29 (.241) in his last 11 contests, but during that stretch he also has five extra-base hits, including three homers. Ervin also has six home runs, 18 RBI, 23 runs and three steals this year.
