Spring Training Game #11 A Jake Irvin start

That 17.18 ERA that right-handed starting pitcher, Jake Irvin, posted over two appearances in Spring Training will be a stat that Irvin won’t miss from his Baseball Reference page when they wipe the slate clean in three weeks. Irvin has to start pitching well to make sure he isn’t the odd man out in the starting rotation. He isn’t an established veteran with a lock on a roster spot.

So when they say Spring Training stats don’t matter, that pertained to guys with a history, not second year players, NRIs, and career minor leaguers.

General Manager Mike Rizzo said that there are few positions set in stone. If Rizzo is allowing this to be an open competition, let’s see players grab a spot. New in camp today is Eddie Rosario who also wants a spot.

Today’s game is televised on the Mets’ SNY network.
