Yankees released RHP Nathan Eovaldi.
He had been designated for assignment in order to free up a 40-man roster spot. Eovaldi wasn't going to be tendered a contract this winter, anyway, since it's his final year of arbitration eligibility and he'll miss 2017 following Tommy John and flexor tendon surgeries. Eovaldi will turn just 27 in February and should draw plenty of interest in teams that are willing to wait out his rehab. Nov 25 - 8:23 AM

Yankees designated RHP Nathan Eovaldi for assignment.

Eovaldi will miss 2017 following Tommy John and flexor tendon surgeries, so the Yanks obviously didn't want to go to arbitration with him. The hard-throwing right-hander will land on his feet somewhere but won't be ready to pitch until spring training in 2018.
Nov 20 - 9:09 AM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman confirmed Thursday that the club will non-tender Nathan Eovaldi.

The move was a given, as Eovaldi is arbitration-eligible for the final time this winter and will miss all of 2017 following Tommy John and flexor tendon surgery in August. The hard-throwing right-hander should be ready to go come spring training in 2018.
Nov 11 - 11:19 AM

Yankees activated RHP Nathan Eovaldi from the 60-day disabled list.

Eovaldi is now back on the 40-man roster, although he's out until 2018 after having Tommy John and flexor tendon surgery in September. He's a likely non-tender candidate.
Nov 4 - 1:46 PM

Yankees transferred RHP Nate Eovaldi from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Eovaldi underwent surgery last month to repair a torn flexor tendon and a partial ulnar collateral ligament tear in his right elbow. He is expected to miss the entire 2017 season. New York will likely non-tender the 26-year-old right-hander this winter, making him a free agent.
Sep 15 - 3:01 PM

Nathan Eovaldi underwent surgery Friday to repair a torn flexor tendon and a partial ulnar collateral ligament tear.

He's almost surely going to be sidelined until 2018. Eovaldi is arbitration-eligible this winter but is likely to be non-tendered.
Aug 19 - 2:40 PM

Nathan Eovaldi has been diagnosed with a torn flexor tendon and a partial UCL tear.

The flexor tendon actually tore completely off the bone. Eovaldi will undergo season-ending surgery within the next couple of days, and his rehab could very well extend through the entire 2017 campaign. The right-hander has already been placed on the disabled list.
Aug 16 - 4:37 PM

Yankees placed RHP Nathan Eovaldi on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 11, with a right elbow tendon injury.

Eovaldi had to depart Wednesday's start after throwing only 12 pitches. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but it would certainly seem to have the potential to be a season-ending injury. Luis Severino has replaced Eovaldi on the roster and figures to take his rotation spot, as well.
Aug 12 - 12:07 PM

Nathan Eovaldi left Wednesday's start against the Red Sox due to right elbow discomfort.

Eovaldi was pulled after throwing just 12 pitches. He will return to New York for further evaluation. His status moving forward should become clear after the Yankees take a closer look, but elbow discomfort is sometimes an ominous sign of more significant injury and a trip to the disabled list could well be in the cards for Eovaldi.
Aug 10 - 8:06 PM

Nathan Eovaldi allowed four runs over seven innings in a loss to the Mets on Thursday.

All four of the Mets' runs came by way of the homer, with Kelly Johnson hitting a solo shot to lead off the fifth inning before Jay Bruce swatted a three-run shot later in the same frame. Outside of that four-run inning, Eovaldi was pretty good, giving up just five hits and two walks while striking out five on the night. With the loss, Eovaldi is 9-8 with a 4.80 ERA and 1.32 WHIP ahead of Wednesday's start against the Red Sox.
Aug 4 - 10:55 PM

Nathan Eovaldi allowed three runs over six innings in a loss to the Rays on Saturday.

Eovaldi yielded just three hits on the afternoon while walking two, but a pair of homers -- a solo shot by Brad Miller and a two-run job by Curt Casali -- did him in. That's been a theme this year for Eovaldi, who has allowed 21 homers in 22 appearances, including 19 starts. The loss dropped the 26-year-old to 9-7 with a 4.78 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the year. He'll look to get back in the win column in a crosstown matchup with the Mets on Thursday.
Jul 30 - 10:06 PM

Nathan Eovaldi continued his rotational resurgence in Sunday's win over the Giants, allowing two runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Maybe Eovaldi's brief demotion to the bullpen shook something loose in his head. In two starts since returning to the rotation, the occasionally confounding flamethrower has surrendered only three runs across 12 frames. On Sunday, he struck out six, walked two and trotted off the mound two outs into the seventh inning having thrown 118 pitches (79 strikes). His 4.80 ERA and 1.36 WHIP for the season remain undesirable, but if he continues to show a renewed spark in the rotation, he has the arm talent to make for a legitimate fantasy difference-maker. That is a huge "if," though, and we have seen Eovaldi entice only to disappoint in the past. Buyer beware. He will look to continue rebuilding himself in a road start against the Rays next Saturday.
Jul 24 - 4:53 PM

Nathan Eovaldi limited the Orioles to one run over 5 1/3 innings in a win Tuesday.

Making his return to the rotation after briefly being moved to the bullpen, Eovaldi allowed just four hits and walked two in an efficient showing. The win moved him to 8-6 on the year and brought his ERA back down below 5, leaving it at 4.93 through 104 innings of work. Eovaldi's struggles were surprising, but we'll still need to see a few more good starts before recommending him for fantasy.
Jul 19 - 10:13 PM

Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports that the Pirates have talked to the Yankees about the possibility of acquiring Nathan Eovaldi.

The Pirates are on the hunt for pitching upgrades, either to the rotation or bullpen, and Eovaldi has the potential to provide either one. The talks appear to be in the very preliminary stages, and it's unclear what the Yankees would be looking for in return for the hard-throwing right-hander.
Jul 16 - 10:06 AM

Nathan Eovaldi will start Tuesday at home against the Orioles.

Eovaldi was pushed to the bullpen in early July, but he's needed again with the Yankees facing a big chunk of consecutive games coming out of the All-Star break. Eovaldi has a 5.18 ERA in 97 1/3 innings this season.
