Player Outlook
Cole Irvin was traded from the A's to the Orioles in January of 2023, but he was demoted to Triple-A after he gave up 15 runs in three turns through the rotation for Baltimore. The 30-year-old rejoined the big club in mid-June and remained there until mid-September, and he pitched much better during that stretch with a 3.32 ERA and 54:13 K:BB in 19 appearances (nine starts). Irvin put up solid numbers for a back-end starter for Oakland in 2021 and 2022, and he had similar output last season despite the ugly start, albeit in a much smaller sample size. The soft-tossing lefty has a limited ceiling but could provide some volume value in 2024 if he's able to earn a spot in the Opening Day rotation, which isn't guaranteed.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Finishes one out shy of win

    Irvin did not factor into the decision during Monday's win over Minnesota, allowing two runs on six hits over 4.2 innings. He struck out four. Irvin was sent out for the fifth inning with a chance to put himself in position for the win but was lifted in favor of Dillon Tate following a two-out single by Manuel Margot. Irvin had been held to roughly 80 pitches in each of his first two starts and the same held true Monday as he was pulled after 82. Irvin had allowed nine runs and walked five in his first two starts, so holding the Twins to just a pair of runs with zero walks was a step in the right direction. His next scheduled start is tentatively slated for a weekend matchup in Kansas City against the Royals.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Roughed up by BoSox

    Irvin didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing five runs on seven hits and three walks across five innings against Boston. He struck out four. Irvin benefitted from a pair of inning-ending double plays in the first and second, keeping a bad start from turning even worse. He was tagged by Triston Casas for a two-run home run during the fifth inning. Irvin has lasted exactly five innings in both of his starts, yielding nine earned runs in total with a 8:5 K:BB on the year. While he could easily be replaced by John Means (forearm) -- who made his second rehab start last weekend -- Irvin is tentatively lined up for a start against the Twins on Monday.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Allows four runs in loss

    Irvin (0-1) took the loss Tuesday versus Kansas City, allowing four earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out three batters over five innings. Irvin accumulated a 6.23 ERA and 1.85 WHIP across 17.1 innings during spring training, and his camp woes seem to have followed him into the regular season. Nick Loftin and Maikel Garcia combined to drive in three runs against the left-hander in the second inning Tuesday, and Garcia capped off the scoring with an RBI triple in the fourth. Irvin is lined up to start again versus Boston next week, though his time in Baltimore's rotation will likely come to an end once Kyle Bradish (elbow) or John Means (forearm) return from their respective injuries.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Set to open in rotation

    Irvin will begin 2024 as the Orioles' fifth starter, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. Experience wins out here, as Irvin's 7.30 ERA and 8:10 K:BB over 12.1 innings across four Grapefruit League starts probably didn't merit a rotation spot. His starting role is tenuous at best -- Kyle Bradish (elbow) and John Means (elbow) will miss some time to begin the season, but but he has a strong beginning to his 2024 campaign, Irvin is likely to head to the bullpen or Triple-A Norfolk once one of those pitchers is ready to debut.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Takes step back Wednesday

    Irvin allowed six runs on seven hits and four walks with three strikeouts over 3.2 innings versus Atlanta on Wednesday. Irvin experienced his first struggles this spring -- he had not allowed a run over his previous five innings across two starts. Irvin remains in contention for a rotation spot, and there should be enough room for both him and Tyler Wells at the start of the season, but that will likely change quickly once Kyle Bradish (elbow) and John Means (elbow) are given the all-clear.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Displays increased velocity

    Irvin had increased velocity on all of his pitches in his Grapefruit League debut Sunday versus the Pirates, Jake Rill of MLB.com reports. Irvin's offseason training has apparently added some additional power to his pitches. He averaged around 92 mph on his fastball and sinker in 2023, with those two pitches combining to be nearly half of all he threw. He also has a curveball, changeup and cutter in his arsenal, and all of them saw velocity increases in his spring debut. The southpaw is in contention for a rotation spot with Kyle Bradish (elbow) and John Means (elbow) likely to miss the start of the campaign.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Shot at rotation spot

    Irvin could be needed in the Orioles' rotation following injuries to Kyle Bradish (elbow) and John Means (elbow), Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. It's also possible the O's could seek help from outside the organization, but as things currently stand it seems likely that they'll need Irvin to make some starts. The left-hander had an uneven first season in Baltimore, finishing with a 4.42 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 68:21 K:BB over 77.1 frames.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Avoids arbitration with Orioles

    Irvin signed a one-year deal with the Orioles on Thursday to avoid arbitration. Irvin had an underwhelming 2023 season, during which his role fluctuated between starting and relief. He also spent a considerable amount of time at Triple-A Norfolk, and he'll likely have to earn a roster spot with Baltimore by performing well in spring training heading into the 2024 campaign.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Back in majors

    Irvin was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday. He takes the place of Bruce Zimmermann in the bullpen on the final day of the season, and could be used as a long man after the Orioles pull Sunday's starter Kyle Bradish. Irvin posted an 11.05 ERA and 2.59 WHIP in 7.1 innings in his two most recent appearances at Triple-A.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Optioned to Triple-A

    Irvin was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday. Irvin didn't give up an earned run in three appearances after being shifted to the bullpen. He was needed for two innings in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals, so he's being replaced by a fresh arm.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Takes fourth loss

    Irvin (1-4) allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out four over 5.2 innings Friday, taking the loss versus the Diamondbacks. Irvin put together a pair of solid starts right after the Orioles moved to a six-man rotation, but he's given up four runs in each of his last two outings. The southpaw was tagged for two-run home runs by Lourdes Gurriel and Christian Walker. Irvin is at a 4.91 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 62:21 K:BB through 69.2 innings over 20 appearances (12 starts) this year. With John Means (elbow) nearing a return to the major-league roster, Irvin's time as a starter for the Orioles could again be coming to a close.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Allows four runs in no decision

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing four runs on six hits and one walk over six innings against Colorado. He struck out five. This marked Irvin's third start since the All-Star break and it was his least effective effort. After allowing just one run in 10 innings during his previous two starts, his night was capped by a two-run fifth-inning home run by Ezequiel Tovar that gave the Rockies a 4-2 lead and left Irvin on the hook for the loss. The Orioles rallied late to allow Irvin to escape with a no-decision, however. The lefty holds a 4.78 ERA with a 1.36 WHIP and 58 strikeouts in 64 innings, which he'll take with him into his next start, penciled in to take place next week against the White Sox.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Steady versus former team

    Irvin allowed a run on four hits and a walk while striking out three over five innings in a no-decision Saturday in the Orioles' 7-2 win over the Athletics. Irvin's lone mistake was the first of Aledmys Diaz's two solo home runs in the contest. Beyond that, it was a successful return to Oakland for Irvin, who pitched with the Athletics in 2021 and 2022. He's given up just two runs (one earned) over 14 innings spanning five appearances in August. The southpaw's 4.66 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 53:19 K:BB through 58 innings overall are nothing special, but he's been solid with one run allowed over 10 innings across his two starts since joining Baltimore's six-man rotation. He's tentatively lined up for a home start versus the Rockies next weekend.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: In line to start Saturday

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Thursday that Irvin is "probable" to start Saturday in Seattle as the team moves to a six-man rotation, Jacob Calvin Meyer of The Baltimore Sun reports. The O's have lots of young arms in their rotation, so going to a six-man setup allows the club to ease their foot off the gas a bit with workloads. Irvin isn't guaranteed to be the sixth man for long, as Tyler Wells is slated to start for Double-A Bowie on Saturday, and the hope is that Wells will be ready to rejoin Baltimore's rotation at some point.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Moving to bullpen

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Irvin will move to the bullpen with Grayson Rodriguez set to rejoin the rotation Monday, Jacob Calvin Meyer of The Baltimore Sun reports. Irvin pitched to a 2.92 ERA and 1.22 WHIP over six outings between June 10 and July 7, working as a starter in five of those appearances. Despite the strong results, the Orioles want to give their top pitching prospect another chance to prove himself, so Irvin is now expected to serve as a multi-inning relief option. The southpaw could still rejoin the rotation later if injuries or poor performance arise.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Puts up strong start

    Irvin allowed a run on three hits and struck out four without walking a batter over 6.1 innings in a no-decision versus the Twins on Friday. Irvin has allowed exactly one run in five of his six outings (five starts) since returning to the big-league roster June 10. Friday's effort was his longest of the season, though a lack of run support helped stretch his winless streak to five appearances. He now sports a 5.50 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 32:13 K:BB through 37.2 innings across 10 appearances (eight starts) on the year. He's pitched well enough lately to remain in the rotation as the Orioles' fifth starter following the All-Star break.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Solid in no-decision

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing one run on six hits and three walks over five innings against Minnesota. He struck out one. Irvin has pitched better since he was recalled from Triple-A, working to a 3.44 ERA over his last 18.1 innings. The lone run against him Sunday came on Willi Castro's two-out double in the fifth inning. The 29-year-old Irvin is 1-3 with a 6.32 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 28:13 K:BB across 31.1 innings this season. He's currently in line for a rematch with the Twins in his next outing.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Lifted after rain delay

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Monday, allowing one run on three hits over three innings in a 10-3 victory over Cincinnati. He struck out three and didn't record a walk. Irvin was replaced to start the fourth inning after a long rain delay, but he had been relatively sharp to start the game. The 29-year-old has been much better during his current big-league stint, posting a 4.05 ERA and 14:2 K:BB over his last four appearances (13.1 innings), than he was at the beginning of the season, when he gave up 15 runs over 12.2 innings. If he can continue to stack quality outings, Irvin should have a good chance of sticking in Baltimore's rotation.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Picking up another start

    Irvin is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Cubs. Irvin will receive a second turn through the Baltimore rotation, filling the spot that previously belonged to Grayson Rodriguez before the rookie right-hander was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on May 27. In his return to the big leagues last weekend versus the Royals, Irvin picked up a win while striking out five over 5.1 innings of one-run ball. Though he'll be making his upcoming start on the road at Wrigley Field, Irvin will at least draw another favorable matchup versus a Cubs offense that ranks 27th in wRC+ (72) since the beginning of June.

  • Orioles' Cole Irvin: Recalled ahead of start against KC

    Irvin was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday ahead of his start against the Royals. The veteran southpaw will make a home start against the Royals after logging a 2.32 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 18:2 K:BB in 31 innings over his last five starts at Triple-A. The lack of strikeouts cap Irvin's upside, and he has a 10.38 ERA in 13 MLB innings this season. If he sticks around in the rotation, Irvin would likely face the Cubs on the road next week.
