First time starter, Cole Irvin goes for Phillies today in Kansas City

The first time starter, Cole Irvin will be getting his chance to shine for the Phillies after rising through the ranks of the Phillies minors going 14-4 for the Iron Pigs last year with a 2.57 ERA. It's really rare to see a lefty pitch for the Phillies anymore, they don't have any lefties on the starting rotation. This could be an excellent opportunity for Irvin to see some more action if he does well today.

It seems like a lot of players languish forever in the Phillies minor league system, Irvin is already 25 years old, gone are the days when a pitcher was brought up as a really young player and can log a decent long career in baseball when it comes to the Phillies at least.

The Phils started the series off with a loss in KC, they looked a little flat as they lost 5-1 to the Royals on Friday night. Bouncing back on Saturday night, they looked much better, though the Royals were making a lot of mistakes on the diamond. The Phils ended up winning the second game by a 7-0 score and raised the season record to 22-16 on the year.

Here's list of first time starters by the Phillies since 2010 - what can we expect from Cole Irvin?
