Oops! All Astros: Tyler Ivey

Tyler Ivey is a six-foot-four, 195 lb. right-handed pitcher from Rowlett, TX. Born on May 12, 1996, he was Houston’s third-round pick in 2017. Picked 91st overall, Ivey was the 19th player to reach the majors after getting chosen at that spot. It’s a fraternity led by Jim Beattie’s 14.8 WAR.

Ivey appeared at every Astros minor league level between his professional debut in 2017 and his major league debut in 2021. He started on May 21, 2021 in a 7-5 loss to the Texas Rangers, allowing four runs in 4 23 innings.

In 2022, Ivey opened the season on Houston’s Triple-A affiliate, the Sugar Land Space Cowboys. He struggled against near-major-league-calibre hitting, allowing a .316/.400/.526 line, an even 2.000 WHIP, and a 10.38 ERA. He did strike out 17 in 13 innings. He went on the restricted list for undisclosed personal reasons in early-May, according to FanGraphs, and didn’t make another appearance. He’s still part of the Astros system, and should start next season back with Sugar Land.
