Phil Irwin to start for Pirates Sunday

J. Meric

Phil Irwin will get the start in place of Wandy Rodriguez on Sunday, Rob Biertempfel writes. Not that it's good to have Rodriguez out, but it'll be interesting to see Irwin make his big-league debut. He didn't have a particularly good spring, but he now has five career Triple-A starts, and they've been good enough to make one think he knows what he's doing at that level, at least.
