Irvin was optioned to the Phillies' alternate training site Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Irvin struggled in his relief appearance Friday, allowing three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out three over 1.2 innings. He'll now return to secondary camp after the Phillies recently acquired several relievers to bolster their bullpen. Given the team's revamped pitching staff, it's unclear whether Irvin will return to the majors at some point in 2020.
Irvin was recalled from the Phillies' alternate training site prior to Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays.
The 6-foot-4 southpaw has given up four runs while striking out one in two innings in the majors this season. He will work in low-leverage spots going forward.
Irvin was optioned to the alternate training site after Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader versus the Braves, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Irvin earned a spot on the Opening Day roster but allowed four runs on five hits over one frame during his lone appearances. The 26-year-old will look to receive another chance with the Phillies later in the season.
Irvin was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday and will be part of the Phillies' Opening Day roster.
Irvin started three games for the Phillies last year and was almost exclusively a starter in the minors, but he's likely to fill a bullpen role in Philadelphia this year. That role is unlikely to be a particularly significant one, as he struggled to a 5.83 ERA in his 41.2-inning debut in 2019.
Irvin has a good shot to open the season on the Phillies' active roster, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Rosters will expand from 26 to 30 for the early part of the upcoming season, with the majority of those extra spots expected to go to relievers. Irvin is a strong candidate for one of those spots due to his ability to provide length out of the bullpen. He's unlikely to be particularly relevant for fantasy owners, though, as he failed to impress in his 41.2-inning debut last season, struggling to a 5.83 ERA.
Irvin was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Irvin made a trio of Grapefruit League appearances before spring training was put on hold, compiling a 5.14 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 5:0 K:BB in seven innings. Once the season picks up, the lefty is a candidate to shuttle between Lehigh Valley and Philadelphia in a swingman role.
The Phillies recalled Irvin from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.
He'll give the Phillies an additional long-relief arm in September but will likely see the bulk of his appearances limited to mop-up situations. Irvin previously made eight appearances (three starts) for the Phillies earlier this season, submitting a 7.98 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 29.1 innings.
Irvin was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.
Irvin was recalled in mid-July and allowed four runs (two earned) over four innings during his stay in the majors. Right-hander Edgar Garcia joins the Phillies in a corresponding move.
The Phillies recalled Irvin from Triple-A Lehigh Valley ahead of Thursday's series finale with the Dodgers.
Irvin and Fernando Salas were summoned from the minors to provide fresh arms out of the bullpen after the Phillies needed five relievers to cover the final 6.2 innings of Wednesday's 7-2 loss. The Phillies are still intent on developing Irvin as a starter, so expect him to return to the Triple-A rotation in a few days once Philadelphia's other bullpen arms are sufficiently rested.
Irvin was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.
Irvin has so far failed to establish himself at the big-league level, recording a 7.82 ERA in 25.1 innings in his debut season. Adam Morgan (forearm) was activated from the injured list to take his place on the roster.
Irvin gave up six runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out four through 3.2 innings of relief work and did not factor into the decision in a loss to the Braves on Sunday.
After Vince Velasquez gave up four runs through 2.1 innings as an opener, Irvin quickly gave up a two-run home run to Josh Donaldson, and things did not get much better for the left-hander. Irvin carries a 6.84 ERA and a 7.9 K/9 through four appearances this season.
Irvin was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
The 25-year-old is set to work as the primary pitcher behind opener Vince Velasquez versus the Braves. Irvin has a 5.48 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 18:6 K:BB over 21.1 innings with the Phillies this season.
Irvin will be called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to pitch Sunday versus the Braves, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
Manager Gabe Kapler neglected to say whether Irvin would work as a traditional starter or follow an opener, but he's set to see the bulk of the innings Sunday regardless. The 25-year-old allowed one run over seven innings during his first major-league outing of the season, but he has a 7.53 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 14.1 innings since then.
Irvin could be called up to start Sunday against the Braves, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
The Phillies' plans will depend in part on how they use their bullpen over the next two games, with a full bullpen game also seemingly a possibility. Irvin owns an unimpressive 5.48 ERA in 21.1 innings for the Phillies this season.
Irvin was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Monday.
Irvin was called up to pitch in long relief behind an opener Saturday against the Dodgers and didn't particularly impress, allowing a pair of runs in 3.2 innings. His ERA sits at 5.48 through 21.1 frames in his rookie campaign. His demotion likely indicates that Zach Eflin (back) will be ready to return from the injured list Friday against the Reds. Reliever Austin Davis was recalled to take his place on the roster.
Irvin pitched 3.2 innings, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk and striking out five batters in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Dodgers.
Irvin was on the hook for the loss until Bryce Harper's two-run homer in the eighth inning tied the game at 3-3. Irvin has a 5.48 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 21.1 innings this season. It's unclear if Zach Eflin (back) will make his next projected start Friday versus the Reds -- if Eflin is unable to go, the rookie Irvin may be given the nod in his place.
Irvin won't start Saturday against the Dodgers as expected but will be available in relief following opener Jose Alvarez, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Irvin threw three innings in a minor-league start Wednesday, so he wasn't going to be available for a full start Saturday. Vince Velasquez is also available to throw several innings in relief, so there's no guarantee Irvin pitches enough innings to be fantasy relevant (or even pitches at all). The Phillies' likely plan is to open with the lefty Alvarez, switch to the righty Velasquez and then switch back to another lefty in Irvin, with neither Velasquez nor Irvin pitching more than three innings.
Irvin was recalled by the Phillies on Friday and will start Saturday against the Dodgers.
Irvin had two good starts and one poor one during his previous stay on the big-league roster, posting a 5.60 ERA. He'll get at least one more shot with Zach Eflin heading to the injured list with mid-back tightness. It's not yet clear if Eflin is expected to return after the minimum 10 days or if Irvin will have a chance to stick around. The young lefty's promotion is significant in that it indicates he's now ahead of Vince Velasquez in the pecking order, as Velasquez was passed over for a spot start despite not pitching since Sunday.
The Phillies optioned Irvin to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Thursday, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Irvin began his MLB career with impressive showings against the Royals and Rockies, but he face planted Wednesday in Chicago, giving up seven runs on seven hits and three walks over 4.2 innings in a loss to the Cubs. The demotion doesn't necessarily mean that Irvin is officially out of the rotation, as the Phillies may have just wanted to have a fresh arm on hand out of the bullpen with a fifth starter not needed again until June 1. However, since Irvin wouldn't be eligible to return until June 2 barring the Phillies moving a player to their injured list, the team will require a replacement spot starter next week.
Irvin (2-1) gave up seven runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six through 4.2 innings, taking the loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.
The Phillies gave Irvin an early 3-0 lead before the wheels came off as he gave up a three-run shot to Anthony Rizzo and later surrendered a grand slam to Albert Almora. He did register nine swinging strikes but allowed far too many baserunners to be successful. The 25-year-old has a 2-1 record with a 5.60 ERA and 13:5 K:BB through three starts this season. Assuming he remains in the rotation, Irvin will make his next start Tuesday against the Cardinals.
