  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Works into fifth inning

    Irvin allowed two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out three over 4.1 innings in Thursday's Grapefruit League win over the Blue Jays. The southpaw said he struggled early in the start as he was still experimenting with pitches, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports. Irvin is expected to make two more appearances in Grapefruit League play, which will serve as more dedicated preparation for regular-season action. The 29-year-old is a virtual lock for the Orioles' rotation after posting a career-best 3.98 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with a 128:36 K:BB over 181 innings with the Athletics last season.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Traded to Orioles

    Irvin was traded from the A's to the Orioles on Thursday in exhange for minor leaguers Darell Hernaiz and Kyle Virbitsky,'s Jeff Passan reports. Irvin put together the best season of his career in 2022, working to an overall 3.98 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 30 starts covering 181 innings. He's never been a big strikeouts compiler, which stunts his fantasy appeal, but the 28-year-old lefty looks like a solid mid-to-upper rotation pickup for the O's as they aim to continue gaining ground in the AL East.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Shines in last start

    Irvin allowed four hits and hit two batters while striking out five and walking none over six scoreless innings in a no-decision versus the Angels on Tuesday. Irvin had a good start in his last outing of the year, but he received no support from his teammates while he was in the game. He had failed to escape the fifth inning in his previous two starts. Irvin concludes 2022 with a 3.98 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 128:36 K:BB across 181 innings over 30 starts. The southpaw could enter 2023 as the Athletics' top starter if he remains with the team through the offseason.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Roughed up again Thursday

    Irvin (9-13) took the loss in Thursday's matchup against the Angels. He completed four innings and allowed three runs on nine hits and one walk with six strikeouts. Irvin was hit hard Thursday, surrendering at least nine hits for the fourth time in his last six starts. In that stretch, he has allowed 30 earned runs over 32.2 innings but has received enough run support to record three wins. He would not be so lucky Thursday, as Shohei Ohtani flirted with a no-hitter, and the Angels' bullpen shut the door in the ninth. Irvin tentatively lines up to face the Angels at home next week for his final start of 2022.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Snags ninth win Saturday

    Irvin (9-11) earned the victory against the Astros on Saturday, allowing four earned runs on seven hits over seven innings while recording a strikeout. Irvin got through his seven frames on an ultra-efficient 73 pitches while garnering his second straight win and third in the last four decisions overall. The veteran left-hander's troubles all came via the long ball during a rough first inning in which he conceded homers to Aledmys Diaz, Kyle Tucker and Trey Mancini. Irvin's subpar 9-11 record is offset by a solid 3.79 ERA and 1.10 WHIP, and he'll aim to reach 10 wins for the second straight season against the Mariners in a likely start at home Thursday.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Earns win with quality start

    Irvin (8-11) gave up two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five over seven innings to earn the win in a 10-3 victory over the White Sox on Sunday. Irvin bounced back with a quality start after getting shelled for nine runs his last time out against Atlanta. The left-hander looked in control throughout the start and never found himself in much serious trouble. Irvin has been good at minimizing baserunners this season and boasts a WHIP of 1.10 in 159.1 innings pitched. He is tentatively expected to make his next start in a tough divisional matchup at Houston.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Walloped by Atlanta

    Irvin tossed 4.2 innings, surrendering nine runs on nine hits and four walks while striking out four in Tuesday's loss to Atlanta. Irvin did not have his best stuff again Tuesday, allowing 13 baserunners while ringing up 14 total outs in the start. He gave up three runs in the first frame before Matt Olson busted the game wide open with a three-run blast in the third. Irvin later surrendered three more runs in the top of the fifth, two of which came around to score after he was pulled with two outs. The left-hander is in the middle of rough stretch on the mound, allowing five or more runs in four of his last five outings. The difficult stretch has raised his ERA from 2.92 to much more inflated 3.78 over 152.1 innings in 25 starts this season.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Sleeper pitchers for Week 22 (Aug. 29-Sept. 4)

    The only downside to Irvin's two-start week is they're both on the road, where he has a 4.88 ERA compared to 1.94 at home. But they're choice matchups in two pitcher-friendly venues, Washington and especially Baltimore. He's also coming off his best start of the season.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Irvin is below the 80 percent rostership threshold that normally governs the players I highlight here, so there's no way I can ignore the start he just had, striking out 11 over seven shutout innings with a swinging-strike total (25) that bettered his career high by nine. Here's the rub: He was facing the Marlins, a team that's darn near inept against left-handed pitchers, ranking dead last in OPS and strikeout rate. He just kept firing in his 91 mph fastball, throwing it a whopping 73 percent of the time, and they were powerless to do anything against it. So, yeah, that aspect was a bit fluky. Still, he has a 3.16 ERA and 1.06 WHIP overall, going at least six innings in 11 straight outings, so he should probably be rostered anyway, if only for his home starts.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Fans career-high 11 against Miami

    Irvin didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Marlins, allowing three hits over seven scoreless innings. He struck out 11 without walking a batter. The lefty put together perhaps the best start of his big-league career, setting a new personal best with the 11 Ks and generating a massive 25 swinging strikes among his 92 pitches. Unfortunately, Irvin was denied his seventh win of the year when Zach Jackson and Dany Jimenez faltered in the eighth and ninth innings. The quality start was Irvin's 13th of the year, and he'll carry a 3.16 ERA and 98:26 K:BB through 142.1 innings into his next outing.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Sleeper pitchers for Week 21 (Aug. 22-28)

    Not only is Irvin at home, where he has a 2.12 ERA on the year, but he's facing a Marlins lineup that's arguably the worst in the league against lefties, ranking dead last in both OPS and strikeout rate.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Serves up two homers in loss

    Irvin (6-11) gave up six runs (five earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out two over six innings to take the loss in a 10-2 defeat against the Mariners on Friday. Irvin has been good this season but he has now struggled in two consecutive starts. He was burned for five earned runs his last time out against Houston and the Mariners took him deep twice to hand him his 11th loss of the campaign. Both long balls came off the bat of Eugenio Suarez. Irvin has now given up 10 earned runs over his last 12 innings pitched. He will look to regain his effectiveness in his next expected start against the Marlins.

  • Athletics' Cole Irvin: Gives up five earned runs

    Irvin (6-10) took the loss against the Astros on Sunday, allowing five runs on eight hits while striking out one and walking one over six innings. After holding Houston to six earned runs across 24.2 innings this season, the Astros finally got to Irvin. He threw 56 of 84 pitches for strikes in the contest, but only managed a single strikeout. The one strikeout was his lowest single-game total this season, and the eight hits allowed tie a single-game season high for Irvin. The lefty will take a 3.13 ERA into his next appearance.

  • 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.
