A 37th-round pick of the Twins out of high school in Minnesota, Irvin is a three-year starter for the Sooners who has been one of the best pitchers in the Big 12 this season. Irvin has steadily improved in his three years at Oklahoma, culminating with his 6-1, 3.16 season this year with 10.2 strikeouts per nine innings as of mid-May. A big, 6-foot-6, 225-pound righthander, Irvin attacks hitters with a 90-94 mph fastball and a low-80s slider that has good late finish. Irvin throws strikes with average control and has shown the ability to locate and manipulate his slider. He barely uses his changeup, so scouts question how good it can be, but he'll flash a fringe-average change in bullpen sessions.
