RHP Jake Irvin, who missed 2021 after having Tommy John surgery, has looked good in #Nats minor league camp. “He’s healthy, repeating his delivery and flashing three plus pitches,” farm director De Jon Watson said today. Has a 95-plus mph fastball, curve and change.

25 years old and has not pitched above Low A.  It's going to be really tough to figure out prospect status of guys who missed 2020 & were limited in 2021.  This may be especially true for Cole Henry and Rutledge.  This kid as well, although he's a couple years older.

Any word on Henry? He looked good last season, as far as it went. And Rutledge?

I assume both are in minor league camp. Given the compressed ST it doesn't seem there are the usual opportunities for minor leaguers to get time in the major league camp

At one point is he back to being a prospect to watch?

Probably time for Harrisburg. At a minimum, I am now excited about his potential as a reliver.
