Irsfeld had a solid outing on the mound for the Minnesota Blizzard on Friday night. At 5-foot-8, the athletic and energetic pitcher showed three pitches but relied consistently on his two best pitches, his fastball and sweeping curveball. His fastball sat at 80mph for the majority of the game and touched 81mph. He showed good control of his curveball (64-66mph) with the ability to throw it for swing and miss strikes.
