The four innings pitched by rookie right-hander Phil Irwin in his Texas debut wasn't what Washington had in mind. Not...

The Book on Phil Irwin

Phil Irwin will make his major league debut today. Phil Irwin is set to make his major league debut today, getting the spot start in place of Wandy Rodriguez. Irwin hasn’t been talked about as much as top guys like Gerrit Cole and Jameson Taillon, mostly because he was a 21st round pick and has kind of flown under the radar in the minors. His numbers last year were excellent, but...

Buried in the boxscore from the Pirates' comeback walkoff win over the Orioles yesterday is this line:  Irwin: 3 2/3 IP 3 H 1 R 1 ER 0 BB 7 K In other words, Phil Irwin came into the game in relief of Jeff Locke, faced 14 hitters, and struck out half of them. Spring training games are full of meaningles stat lines (Jared Goedert's hot spring, for example),...

The Transformation of Phil Irwin From a 21st Round Pick to a Legit Prospect

Phil Irwin had a 2.83 ERA in 130.1 innings last year, with an 8.1 K/9 and a 1.7 BB/9.
