ATHLETICS ADD PITCHER IRVIN
The Oakland Athletics acquired pitcher Cole Irvin from the Philadelphia Phillies for cash.
What does it give the Oakland Athletics
In Irvin, the A's land a 27-year-old southpaw who can both start and relieve at the big-league level. He stands a good shot at making the big club out of spring training.
What does it give the Philadelphia Phillies
The Phillies needed to created room on their 40-man roster for the return of shortstop Didi Gregorius, who re-signed with the team. So, Philadelphia moved out Irvin for cash.
Irvin's fantasy value is extremely limited even if he were to work his way into Oakland's starting rotation. Therefore, do not draft Irvin.
