Dana Eveland was pounded in Saturday's loss to the Indians, allowing five runs on six hits in 3 2/3 innings.

Eveland did manage to record five strikeouts while walking two, but he was mostly very hittable. He has compiled an underwhelming 4.11 ERA in 30 2/3 innings this season and can continue to be ignored for fantasy purposes Thursday against the Angels.

Dana Eveland will start Saturday against the Indians.

Eveland ultimately got the nod over Tommy Hunter. The 28-year-old left-hander has a 3.00 ERA over one start and 10 relief appearances this year, despite an underwhelming 13/11 K/BB ratio in 27 innings. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
