Player Outlook
Jake Irvin is the classic example of the difference between real baseball and fantasy baseball. Real baseball general managers have to find someway to get roughly 1450 innings of pitching to survive a season. In the old days, it would be 1000 from the rotation and 450 from the bullpen, but that now looks closer to 850-900 from the rotation and more from the pen. Pitchers like Irvin fill a need on real baseball teams because they can take the ball and eat up innings as Irvin did in 2023. Fantasy baseball managers can be more selective in the pitchers they use to get to a league minimum for innings pitched, and the successful ones avoid using the type of innings Irvin provides as they are harmful to ratios without providing many chances for wins on a bad club. Irvin's repertoire is better served in the bullpen until he comes up with a better offspeed pitch. The best case scenario here is a NL-Only end game pick for depth purposes only.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Takes fifth loss

    Irvin (2-5) took the loss Wednesday against the Twins, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out six over 6.1 innings. Irvin was solid overall Wednesday, holding Minnesota to two runs on a pair of solo homers, though he'd ultimately take his third loss in four starts as the Nationals failed to generate enough run support. The 27-year-old Irvin's ERA now sits at 3.79 with a solid 1.07 WHIP and 44:9 K:BB across 10 outings (57 innings) this season. He's currently slated for a tough road matchup in Atlanta early next week in his next start.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Pitches well in no-decision

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Saturday in Boston, allowing two runs on four hits and no walks over seven innings. He struck out six. It marks the first time in 32 career starts at the big-league level that Irvin completed seven innings. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to pick up a win for his efforts, as the right-hander departed with the game tied and then watched reliever Robert Garcia cough up a couple runs in the eighth inning. Irvin has permitted two or fewer runs in five of his last six outings, lowering his ERA to a season-low 3.55. His next projected start is a difficult one on the road versus the Phillies.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Sharp in second win

    Irvin (2-2) picked up the win in Monday's 7-2 victory over the Marlins, giving up two runs on four hits over six innings. He struck out three without walking a batter. The right-hander delivered his third quality start of the season in efficient fashion, tossing 59 of 84 pitches for strikes and taking a shutout into the sixth inning before Jazz Chisholm launched a two-run homer to center field. Irvin will carry a 4.28 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 26:7 K:BB through 33.2 innings into his next outing, which lines up to come at home this weekend against the Blue Jays.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Roughed up in Dodgers rematch

    Irvin (1-2) took the loss Wednesday, surrendering six runs on 12 hits and a walk over 4.2 innings as the Nationals were routed 11-2. He struck out three. The 27-year-old righty blanked the Dodgers over six innings in his prior start, but the NL West powerhouses weren't fooled a second time. Irvin got the hook after 103 pitches (66 strikes) in his worst outing yet this season, and he'll carry a 4.55 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 23:7 K:BB through 27.2 innings into his next start, which lines up for a less scary road matchup against the Marlins early next week.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Blanks Dodgers for first win

    Irvin (1-1) earned the win Wednesday against the Dodgers, allowing four hits and a walk over six scoreless innings. He struck out six. It was quite a day for Irvin against a star-studded Dodgers lineup, as he held Los Angeles off the board en route to his first win of the season. The 27-year-old Irvin has delivered back-to-back quality starts, allowing just one run across 12 innings in that span. He lowered his ERA to 3.13 with a 1.00 WHIP and 20:6 K:BB through his first four outings (23 innings) this season. Irvin will look to keep rolling in his next start, currently scheduled as a home rematch with the Dodgers early next week.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Sharp in no-decision

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Friday against Oakland, allowing one run on one hit and two walks over six innings. He struck out five. Irvin had one of the finest outings of his young career Friday night with the only blemish being a solo home run yielded to Lawrence Butler. The 27-year-old has looked like a reliable starter for the Nationals as he sports a 4.24 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 14:5 K:BB over his first 17 innings. However, Irvin draws a much more difficult opponent in his next start, currently scheduled against the Dodgers on the road.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Yields three runs in no-decision

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Sunday against the Reds, allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out four. Irvin cruised through the first two innings of his start with three strikeouts while facing the minimum six batters. However, the Reds lineup broke through to post three runs on six hits over his final three innings. Irvin allowed plenty of hard contact, as all batted balls in the fourth and fifth innings were over 95 mph. However, he should be a mainstay in the Nationals rotation after making 24 starts for the team in 2023. Irvin's next outing is scheduled to be against the Phillies on the road.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Sharp against Mets on Thursday

    Irvin gave up two hits over four scoreless innings in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Mets. He struck out five without walking a batter. The 27-year-old righty made his first start of the spring and looked much better than he had in two prior relief stints, firing 37 of 51 pitches for strikes and having few issues with what could very well have been New York's Opening Day lineup. Irvin is locked into a rotation spot for the Nationals, and while expectations are low after he posted a 4.61 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 18.7 percent strikeout rate over 121 innings as a rookie last season, he does have an intriguing 11:2 K:BB through his first 7.2 frames this spring.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Shut down with ankle injury

    Irvin was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday with right ankle tendinitis, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. Irvin suffered the season-ending injury during his start Thursday against Atlanta, in which he surrendered five earned runs on seven hits and three walks over just 2.2 innings of work. He'll finish the 2023 campaign with a 3-7 record, 4.61 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 99:54 K:BB in 121 innings (24 starts) for the Nationals.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Quality start against Dodgers

    Irvin came away with a no-decision Saturday in the Nationals' 7-6 extra-innings win over the Dodgers, allowing one run on three hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out four. The 26-year-old righty delivered his fourth quality start in his last five outings and out-pitched more heralded rookie Bobby Miller in the process, but Irvin saw his potential fourth win of the season slip away when Kyle Finnegan blew the save in the ninth. Since the beginning of August, Irvin has produced an impressive 2.65 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB through 34 innings as he looks to lock himself into the Nats' 2024 rotation plans. He's next set to take the mound next weekend in Milwaukee.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Another no-decision Friday

    Irvin came away with a no-decision Friday in the Nationals' 8-5 extra-innings loss to the Marlins, giving up three runs on four hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out four. The right-hander got the hook after 80 pitches (44 strikes) with the score tied 3-3, marking his seventh straight start without a decision and snapping his quality start streak at three. Irvin has pitched relatively well over that stretch, however, posting a 3.43 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 35:14 K:BB through 39.1 innings. With Washington looking to manage the workload of its younger arms, the 26-year-old likely won't take the mound again until next weekend in a home start against the Dodgers.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Strong outing wasted

    Irvin came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 12-3 loss to the Phillies, allowing five hits and two walks over six scoreless innings. He struck out seven. The rookie right-hander delivered his best performance yet in the majors and left the mound in line for his fourth win, but the Nationals' bullpen completely fell apart over the final three frames. Irvin generated 33 called or swinging strikes among his 94 pitches as he produced his second straight quality start and sixth of the year, and he'll look for a better result in his next outing, likely to come next weekend in Miami.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Claims quality start

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing two runs on seven hits over 6.2 innings in a 3-2 win over the Athletics. He struck out six. Though the Nationals are planning on monitoring Irvin's workload for the remainder of the season, he threw 99 pitches across 6.2 frames Saturday. He surrendered only a pair of runs, but both came on long balls, as JJ Bleday and Brent Rooker each tagged Irvin for solo homers. Irvin has now allowed a home run in eight of his last nine starts and has served up multiple long balls in four of his last five outings. Despite his power troubles, Irvin owns a palatable 4.76 ERA across 90.2 innings with a 74:36 K:BB. He's tentatively scheduled to take on the Phillies for his next start.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Yields two runs in no-decision

    Irvin allowed two runs on six hits and two walks over 5.1 innings in Monday's win over Milwaukee. He struck out two and dd not factor in the decision. Irvin gave up one run through five innings before putting three straight Brewers on base in the sixth, ending his outing. He was tagged with 11 runs in just 15.2 innings over his previous three outings before Monday's decent performance. Irvin registered a 5.06 ERA across six July starts, raising his season ERA to 4.86 through 79.2 frames. His next outing is currently lined up for this weekend in Cincinnati.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Fans nine in victory

    Irvin (3-5) allowed three earned runs on five hits and one walk over 6.2 innings Friday in a win over the Giants. He struck out nine. The nine strikeouts were a career high for the 26-year-old right-hander, who hadn't missed many bats across his first 13 major-league starts. Irvin gave up a solo homer to J.D. Davis in the top of the first inning and a two-run shot to Joc Pederson in the top of the third, but he otherwise looked sharp. He lines up to face the Rockies at Nationals Park next time out.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Goes three frames against St. Louis

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk over three innings against the Cardinals. He struck out three. Irvin struggled to get through the Cardinals' lineup, getting pulled after tossing 79 pitches in three innings of work. All of the damage came in the second frame, during which Irvin allowed a solo home run to Alec Burleson and a triple to Brendan Donovan. Though Irvin owns a 4.96 ERA on the year, Saturday's start marked his first outing allowing more than three earned runs since May 30. However, he's pitched six innings only twice in that stretch.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Struggles versus Diamondbacks

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks over four innings against Arizona. He struck out one. After bursting onto the scene with one run allowed across his first two starts (10.2 innings), Irvin has slowed considerably, piling up three losses with an 8.85 ERA and a 15:13 K:BB over 20.1 innings (five starts) since. Though he has matched up against some powerful offenses in the Mets, Padres and Dodgers over that five-start stretch, Irvin hasn't shown much to give fantasy managers hope for a turnaround. He is lined up for another tough start on the road against Atlanta this weekend.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Falters against Dodgers

    Irvin (1-3) took the loss Tuesday versus the Dodgers, allowing four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out three over five innings. Irvin contained his struggles to the second and third innings, but the damage was too much for the Nationals to overcome. He's lost three of his last four outings, and this was just the second time in six starts Irvin's been able to finish five frames. He's at a 5.67 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 22:17 K:BB through 27 innings. With a 5.7 BB/9 and four home runs surrendered in his last three appearances, there's not much to like with the right-hander. He's projected for a home start versus the Diamondbacks in his next outing.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Gives up one run in MLB debut

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing one run on two hits and four walks across 4.1 innings during a 2-1 win over the Cubs. He struck out three. Irvin was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday and replaced Chad Kuhl (foot) in the Nationals' starting rotation. The rookie struggled to find his command early, plunking Nico Hoerner and walking Ian Happ before surrendering a two-out, RBI single to Seiya Suzuki in the first inning. However, that was the only blemish on the night for Irving, who was replaced in the fifth with one out and runners on first and second. The four walks were a bit concerning for the 26-year-old, who posted a 1.54 WHIP over 22.1 innings at Triple-A, but he likely did enough in his MLB debut to earn at least one more start while Kuhl is on the 15-day injured list.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Starting Wednesday against Cubs

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Irvin will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester to make the start against the Cubs on Wednesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports. Irvin will be making his MLB debut Wednesday. The 26-year-old has made five starts (22.1 innings) for Rochester while posting a 5.64 ERA and 20:11 K:BB. The Nationals have already sent down Cory Abbott to make room for Irvin on the roster. Whether Irvin makes multiple starts for Washington will be determined in part by how he pitches against the Cubs.
