Irvin won Pacific West Conference pitcher of the year as a freshman at Division II Point Loma Nazarene and bounced back to Riverside (Calif.) JC this season in pursuit of a Division I offer. He got it with a scholarship to Arizona. Irvin sits 87-89 mph from the left side with a swing-and-miss curveball and an advanced feel to pitch. He’s slightly undersized at 6-foot, 180-pounds, but he’s succeeded against every caliber of competition, including at Norco (Calif.) HS when he was the only pitcher to strike out future Brewers first-rounder Brice Turang in Turang’s junior season. Irvin is strongly committed to Arizona and will be expensive to sign.
