  • 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: Lasts four innings Thursday

    Irvin did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing two runs on two hits and four walks over four innings against San Diego. He struck out four.

    It's a step in the right direction for Irvin after he allowed 10 runs in 7.1 innings over his previous two outings. Still, the rookie right-hander only made it through four innings after throwing 76 pitches. Irvin is 1-2 with a 5.32 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 19:16 K:BB through his first five major-league starts (22 innings).

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Mauled by Tigers

    Irvin (1-2) took the loss Friday, coughing up six runs (four earned) on five hits and four walks over 2.2 innings as the Nationals were downed 8-6 by the Tigers. He struck out one.

    It was a brutal outing for the rookie right-hander, who served up two homers to a light-hitting Detroit lineup that wound up going yard four times in total on the night. Irvin now carries a 5.50 ERA, 1.61 WHIP and 15:12 K:BB through 18 innings over his first four big-league starts, but the Nats don't have any clearly better rotation options in the minors. If he gets another turn, it will likely come at home next week against the Padres.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Earns win in scoreless outing

    Irvin (1-0) earned the win Monday, allowing four hits and three walks over 6.1 scoreless innings in a 5-1 win over the Giants. He struck out five.

    Irvin has now allowed just one run over 10.2 innings, getting his big-league career off to an impressive start after working his way up the ranks in Washington's farm system for three-plus seasons. However, this is a very small sample size, and fantasy managers would be best served tempering expectations until he proves capable of sustaining that caliber of performance over an extended period.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Getting another start

    Irvin is scheduled to start Monday's game against the Giants at Oracle Park, Mark Zuckerman of reports.

    After limiting the Cubs to one earned run on two hits and four walks over 4.1 innings in a no-decision in his MLB debut last Wednesday, Irvin will be rewarded with at least one more turn through the rotation. Whether he sticks with the Nationals beyond Monday's outing will likely hinge on how he performs in San Francisco. If he does acquit himself well against the Giants, Irvin would likely line up for two-start week, with his second outing likely to come next Sunday versus the Mets in Washington, D.C.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Will remain on MLB roster

    Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Thursday that Irvin will stay on the major-league roster for now, Bobby Blanco of reports.

    Martinez wouldn't fully commit to Irvin getting another start after he made his MLB debut Wednesday, but the 26-year-old right-hander probably earned it after delivering 4.1 innings of one-run ball versus the Cubs. If the Nats stay on turn and Irvin does indeed remain a normal part of the rotation, his second major-league outing would likely be on the road early next week in San Francisco.

  • 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.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Called up for start

    The Nationals recalled Irvin from Triple-A Rochester ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Cubs.

    Just as manager Dave Martinez said would be the case following Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Cubs, Irvin will step into the rotation Wednesday for what will be his MLB debut. The 26-year-old right-hander supplied a 5.64 ERA and 1.54 WHIP while striking out 20 over 22.1 innings at Rochester, but he could nonetheless have a chance to stick around as the Nationals' No. 5 starter with a solid showing against the Cubs.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Sent down to Triple-A

    Washington optioned Irvin to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

    Irvin will head to Triple-A after splitting last season between High- and Double-A. He was added to the 40-man roster over the offseason and could push for a debut at some point in 2023.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Added to 40-man roster

    Irvin's contract was selected by the Nationals on Tuesday.

    In his first season since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2020, Irvin spent most of 2022 in Double-A Harrisburg, where he put up a 4.79 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 73.1 innings. He still has work to do, but there's a chance the 25-year-old righty could work his way onto the big-league roster within the next couple of seasons.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Healthy in camp

    Irvin (elbow) is fully healthy and has pitched well during spring training, Lacy Lusk of Baseball America reports.

    Irvin underwent Tommy John surgery in October 2020 but is now fully recovered entering this season. He last saw game action at the Low-A level in 2019 and had a 4.00 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 113:38 K:BB over 128.1 innings.

  • Nationals' Jake Irvin: Undergoes Tommy John surgery

    Irvin underwent Tommy John surgery last week, Byron Kerr of reports.

    The 23-year-old righty spent the year as part of the Nationals' player pool but did not get into the game, hardly a surprise as he spent the entirety of 2019 at the Low-A level. The timing of the surgery means he'll miss the entirety of the 2021 season but should be ready to go for spring training in 2022.
