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.
Irvin (2-0) picked up the win after surrendering four runs (three earned) on five hits and a walk while striking out two over six innings Friday night against the Rockies.
Irvin earned himself another start after turning in a stellar outing Sunday, and although he struggled at times Friday night, he managed to come away with the victory. The southpaw allowed a run in the second and third innings before giving up a two-run homer in the sixth. It's unclear whether Irvin will remain in the starting rotation moving forward.
Irvin will make his second career start Friday against the Rockies, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Irvin looked quite good in his MLB debut, scattering five hits over seven innings and allowing just one run Sunday against the Royals. He'll get at least one more chance, though Vince Velasquez isn't supposed to miss much more time with his forearm injury and Nick Pivetta is turning things around with Triple-A Lehigh Valley, so he may have to pitch quite well to stick around in the rotation past Friday's outing.
Irvin (1-0) allowed one run on five hits and a walk while striking out five over seven innings Sunday in a win over the Royals.
Irvin was stellar on the mound in his debut, allowing the only run of the contest in the third inning on a single to left field. He was also able to pound the strike zone, hurling 64 of 93 pitches for strikes. Vince Velasquez (forearm) is only expected to miss one start, though Irvin has certainly made a case to remain in the rotation.
The Phillies selected Irvin's contract from Triple-A Lehigh Valley ahead of his scheduled start Sunday in Kansas City, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Irvin will be making his MLB debut as a replacement in the rotation for the injured Vince Velasquez (forearm). Velasquez believes he'll only be forced to miss one start due to the injury, but Irvin could have a legitimate case for sticking in the rotation over Velasquez if he turns in an impressive outing against the Royals. Over six turns at Triple-A this season, Irvin has posted a shiny 2.25 ERA, though it has been supported by a weak 23:8 K:BB and 1.22 WHIP in 36 innings.
Irvin will be called up Sunday to make his big-league debut against the Royals, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Vince Velasquez landed on the injured list with a right forearm strain, so Irvin could have the opportunity to stick around for more than just one start should he impress Sunday. Irvin was never a particularly top prospect but saw his stock rise after recording a 2.57 ERA for Triple-A Lehigh Valley last season. His 5.5 percent walk rate in 31 starts and one relief appearance at that level is quite strong, but his modest 19.5 strikeout rate limits his upside.
Irvin will receive the start in the Phillies' Grapefruit League opener Friday versus the Rays, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
The Phillies plan to lean on a slew of young arms in the early stages of spring training, with Irvin kicking off the exhibition slate following a spectacular 2018 campaign at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He turned in a 2.57 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 131:35 K:BB in 161.1 innings, taking home International League Pitcher of the Year honors in the process. Irvin isn't considered a serious candidate for either of the final two spots in the Philadelphia rotation and should begin the 2019 campaign at Triple-A.
Irvin was named the International League's Pitcher of the Year on Tuesday, Tom Housenick of The Morning Call reports.
Irvin doesn't have all that much prospect pedigree, but he's posted excellent numbers throughout the season for Triple-A Lehigh Valley, recording a 2.67 ERA over 155.1 innings. Scouting reports have him as a back-of-the-rotation, command-driven lefty, as he lacks velocity and has no plus secondary pitches. The 24-year-old achieved great results against Triple-A hitters despite those limitations, however, with a low 5.5 percent walk rate playing a large part in his success. He's not on the Phillies' 40-man roster, so a September callup appears unlikely, but he could be given a look at some point next season.
