Philadelphia Phillies — The Phillies needed to get their bullpen a rest, so they brought on Cole Irvin to pitch the eighth inning of a two-run game. He stayed on for the ninth after the Phillies added three runs to earn his first career save. Irvin has been shaky in his rookie season, mostly as a spot starter and long reliever, so this save might be his last one for a while. The rest of the bullpen probably appreciated the break, as Hector Neris, Adam Morgan, JD Hammer and Jose Alvarez had all seen plenty of work in the last week. 

Hierarchy remains: Neris | Morgan | Hammer.

Job well done, Cole! Seven innings, one run, one walk, five strikeouts. Not a lot of velo (87-91) and bad G/F (5/11) for a guy whose primary pitch is a four-seamer. But threw strike one to 22 of 27 batters.

Velasquez, take a seat. FAABers, rev your engines.

Lots of newbies and near-newbies toeing the mound today. Take the over on whatever the over/under is on total runs.

Rotowire's scouting report for this pitcher:

May 12, 2019
The Phillies selected Irvin's contract from Triple-A Lehigh Valley ahead of his scheduled start Sunday in Kansas City, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
ANALYSIS
Irvin will be making his MLB debut as a replacement in the rotation for the injured Vince Velasquez (forearm). Velasquez believes he'll only be forced to miss one start due to the injury, but Irvin could have a legitimate case for sticking in the rotation over Velasquez if he turns in an impressive outing against the Royals. Over six turns at Triple-A this season, Irvin has posted a shiny 2.25 ERA, though it has been supported by a weak 23:8 K:BB and 1.22 WHIP in 36 innings.
