Top Jake Irvin News

  • 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: Crushed in seventh loss

    Irvin (3-7) took the loss Thursday against Atlanta, allowing five runs on seven hits and three walks over 2.2 innings. He struck out one.

    After tossing a solid 23 innings across four August starts to the tune of a 2.35 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 22:7 K:BB, Irvin has had a rough time in September. Over four outings this month, he's produced a 6.38 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 15:13 K:BB over 18.1 innings. Irvin tentatively lines up for a rematch with Atlanta for his final start of the season next weekend.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Can't find plate in loss

    Irvin (3-6) took the loss Friday, giving up four runs on three hits and five walks over 4.2 innings as the Nationals fell 5-3 to the Brewers. He struck out six.

    The right-hander kept Milwaukee off the board for four innings, but his command and control issues caught up to him in the fifth as two free passes set up a three-run homer for William Contreras. Irvin has walked multiple batters in five straight starts, but he's largely been able to escape the jams he's created, posting a 2.93 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 24:15 K:BB through 27.2 innings over that stretch. He hasn't won a game since July 21 however, limiting his fantasy appeal in traditional 5x5 formats. He'll face a tough matchup in his next outing, likely to come at home next week against Atlanta.

  • 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: Stingy in no-decision

    Irvin came away with a no-decision Saturday in the Nationals' 3-2 win over the Marlins, allowing one run on four hits and three walks over six innings. He struck out three.

    In a matchup of rookie right-handers, Irvin battled the more heralded Eury Perez to a stalemate over six frames, leaving the mound after 96 pitches (58 strikes) with the score tied 1-1. It's the third straight quality start for Irvin, but he hasn't gotten a decision in any of them, and his last win came back on July 21. In six outings since, he sports a 3.15 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB through 34.1 innings. Irvin will try to get back in the win column in his next start, a potential rematch with the Marlins back in Washington next weekend.

  • 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: Team monitoring workload

    Irvin will have his workload managed for the remainder of the season as the Nationals deploy a six-man rotation, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    The 26-year-old right-hander has thrown 106.1 innings between Triple-A and the majors this season, which already tops the 103.1 frames Irvin worked the year before in his return from Tommy John surgery in October 2020. Shifting to a six-man rotation will cost the Nats' regular starters a turn or two over the remainder of the season, and if younger arms like Irvin or MacKenzie Gore show serious signs of fatigue in August, the team could re-evaluate the situation when rosters expand in September. Irvin has a 5.20 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 31:11 K:BB through 36.1 innings since the beginning of July.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Can't make it out of fifth

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks over 4.1 innings against the Reds. He struck out six.

    After being handed a four-run lead before even throwing a pitch, Irvin never lost the lead but was pulled with one out in the fifth having thrown 94 pitches. Irvin had pitched at least five innings in eight of his previous nine starts. However, following a promising June in which he posted a 3.48 ERA, he's struggled to a 4.95 ERA since. His next turn in the rotation is scheduled for next weekend in a home matchup with the A's.

  • 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: Serves up three home runs

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks over six innings against Colorado. He struck out seven.

    Irvin was victimized by the long ball in the second, third and sixth innings, marking the first time this season in which he's allowed three home runs in a game. However, he still managed to get through six innings for the second straight start while logging his second-highest strikeout total of the season with seven. The right-hander has now surrendered five home runs over his last two starts and will look to keep the ball in the park in his next appearance, which is likely to come next week against the Brewers.

  • 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: Carried to second win

    Irvin (2-5) picked up the win Saturday, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks over five innings in an 8-3 victory over the Rangers. He struck out one.

    The right-hander was far from dominant, but Washington's offense handed Irvin an 8-0 lead before Texas finally got on the board in the fourth inning. It's the 26-year-old rookie's first win in two months, but he's been giving the Nats reliable innings lately, posting a 3.69 ERA and 1.29 WHIP over six starts since the beginning of June despite a mediocre 19:11 K:BB through 31.2 frames. Irvin may face some workload concerns in the second half -- he's thrown 81 innings already in 2023 between Triple-A and the majors but tossed only 103.1 innings in the minors last year -- but he appears to be firming up his grip on a rotation spot.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Takes fifth loss

    Irvin (1-5) yielded three runs on six hits and a walk over six innings Monday, striking out three and taking a loss against the Reds.

    Most of the damage against Irvin came in the fourth inning on Joey Votto's two-run shot. After posting a 5.67 ERA through his first six outings, Irvin owns a 3.71 ERA since the start of June. However, he's lost five straight decisions since his last win May 8. Irvin will carry a 4.70 ERA into his next outing, which is projected to be at home against the Rangers this weekend.
