WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE
The Pirates drafted Irvine as a junior from Iowa.  He was a reliever his first two years and mostly a starter in 2021.  He didn’t put up good numbers in college, with a 6.33 career ERA.  As a junior, he had a 6.43 ERA and 1.76 WHIP, with 31 walks and 49 strikeouts in 49 innings.  He also threw six wild pitches and hit four batters, so control seems to be an issue.  He’s done better in summer ball, including a 1.96 ERA in the Northwoods League in 2020, with 38 strikeouts in 23 innings.  Irvine throws the standard four pitches.  Baseball America didn’t rank him among its top 500 draft prospects, but ranked him eighth in Iowa in a weak year for the state.
