Iorio returns for his second season with the Ducks and sixth in professional baseball. The right-handed pitcher made 32 appearances, including 19 starts, during the 2019 regular season. He compiled a 6-3 record with a 3.09 ERA and 92 strikeouts to 32 walks over 128.1 innings of work. After giving up just one run in 10 relief appearances to begin the season, he moved into the starting rotation and went 4-3 with a 3.20 ERA and 75 strikeouts over 104 innings. The West Islip native was selected to pitch in the Atlantic League All-Star Game on July 10 in York, and he was also voted by fans as the Delmonte-Smelson Team MVP. Iorio then pitched five games in the postseason, including three scoreless innings in Game Four of the Atlantic League Championship Series with the Ducks facing elimination.

Prior to joining the Ducks, the 28-year-old spent four seasons in the Frontier League with Washington (2015), Southern Illinois (2015-16) and River City (2017-18). He made 86 appearances in that time, going 6-2 with a 3.95 ERA, three saves and 108 strikeouts over 95.2 innings. The righty was named a Frontier League All-Star in 2018 and he ranked second in the league in appearances that year (45), posting a 5-1 record with a 1.46 ERA. Iorio played collegiate baseball at Barry University (Fla.) and the University of North Florida.
