In a banner year for University of Virginia position players, Irving has been a steady three-year contributor behind the plate and profiles as a catch-and-throw backstop with intangibles. He has an average, accurate arm with solid defensive skills. He is likely to be a below-average hitter with below-average power, sporting a .275/.387/.330 career line. He is a contact-oriented hitter who works inside the ball and his power is more to the gaps. He makes up for his power deficiency with advanced plate discipline and knowledge of the strike zone, and he walked more frequently than he struck out in his career. The 6-foot, 230-pound Irving has a strong, mature build and a low ceiling, but offers a dependable set of present skills.
