Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) threw a simulated game Monday and is confident he'll be available as a reliever for the ALDS should the Yankees advance.
He was only supposed to throw a bullpen session but apparently was feeling well enough to face hitters. Eovaldi has been on the shelf for the last four weeks with inflammation in his pitching elbow but appears to be healthy now and could prove to be a weapon out of the bullpen. Oct 5 - 4:30 PM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) played catch Monday for the third time in the last four days.

Those workouts have been going well and Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Monday that the right-hander could become an option if the Yankees advance past the American League Wild Card Game. Eovaldi has been sidelined since the first week of September with elbow inflammation.
Sep 28 - 4:04 PM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) played catch on Friday and Saturday.

It's the first time he's thrown since being diagnosed with right elbow inflammation back on September 7. Eovaldi could make it back as a reliever for the Yankees in the postseason, but that's not a given. "I think it’s hard for him to be a starter," manager Joe Girardi said. "We’ll see where he’s at after playing catch and doing some things for a week and then make a determination."
Sep 27 - 9:38 AM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) is still a week away from resuming throwing.

Eovaldi was supposed to be able to throw two weeks after being diagnosed with right elbow inflammation, but it looks like it will be three weeks. He obviously won't make it back before the end of the regular season, but the Yankees are hopeful he could help out as a reliever in the postseason.
Sep 21 - 5:16 PM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) conceded Friday that his best-case scenario would be to "come back and help the bullpen, depending on how deep we go."

Eovaldi was diagnosed early last week with right elbow inflammation and isn't slated to resume throwing until sometime next week. He simply doesn't have enough time to get stretched back out as a starter and it's far from a given that he'll make it back as a reliever.
Sep 18 - 4:48 PM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that it "sounds like" Nathan Eovaldi won't be able to pitch until the postseason.

Eovaldi has been shut down for two weeks due to right elbow inflammation. Assuming all goes well, he'll ramp up a throwing program from there. There's simply just not enough time in the calendar to get him stretched out for another regular season start. Of course, if there's any setback, he's likely to be shut down for the year. The Yankees are stretching out Adam Warren to take his place in the rotation.
Sep 8 - 4:06 PM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) will be shut down for the next two weeks.

Eovaldi's working through a bout of elbow inflammation revealed in an MRI. The team expects him to be back for a possible playoff run, but they're being understandably cautious with their hard-throwing right-hander, who has tossed 154 1/3 innings to this point--the second most he's thrown in a season (he tossed 199 2/3 innings last year). Eovaldi's ERA currently sits at 4.20.
Sep 7 - 7:48 PM

Nathan Eovaldi allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Rays.

It was his first loss since June 16. Eovaldi gave up five hits and matched a season-high with four walks. On the bright side, he gave fantasy owners seven strikeouts. The hard-throwing right-hander has now struck out at least seven batters in four straight starts, which is a very promising trend. He'll bring a 4.20 ERA into a crucial start against the Blue Jays next week.
Sep 5 - 4:57 PM

Nathan Eovaldi moved to 14-2 on the year despite allowing five earned runs in five innings Sunday against the Braves.

Eovaldi was again greeted with tremendous run support in the Yankees' 20-6 rout of the Braves. The hard-throwing right-hander struck out seven but gave up eight hits and two walks in the ugly individual performance. He'll try for better next time out versus the Rays.
Aug 30 - 5:31 PM

Nathan Eovaldi hurled eight shutout innings, but took a no-decision in Monday's walk-off win over the Astros.

Neither Eovaldi nor opposing starter Scott Feldman relented a run over their eight innings. The Yankees' right-hander scattered four hits and three walks while striking out seven. Though he failed to improve to 14-2, Eovaldi did lower his ERA to an even 4.00 with a 1.42 WHIP and a 107/43 K/BB ratio over 144 innings. He'll take on the Braves in a road start next.
Aug 24 - 10:29 PM

Nathan Eovaldi pitched well in Wednesday afternoon's 4-3 win over the Twins, allowing three runs on four hits over seven innings.

Eovaldi struck out eight and walked two on the afternoon. All three runs against him scored in the sixth inning, when Joe Mauer and Trevor Plouffe nicked him with a pair of RBI singles. The 25-year-old right-hander has now picked up a win in each of his last eight decisions, though his overall numbers are somewhat less impressive than that streak--he holds a 4.24 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 100/40 K/BB ratio across 136 innings. Eovaldi will take his 13-2 record into a home showdown with the Astros next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 19 - 3:49 PM

Nathan Eovaldi wasn't at his best, but picked up his 12th victory of the season on Thursday, allowing four runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Indians.

Eovaldi also issued three free passes while punching out four on the afternoon. He has done a nice job overall and has provided consistency in the middle of the Yankees' rotation, compiling a 4.26 ERA and 92/38 K/BB ratio across 129 innings. He has won each of his last seven decisions and will look to continue that streak when he takes on the Twins on Tuesday.
Aug 13 - 11:42 PM

Nathan Eovaldi put on a strong performance in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Friday, surrendering one run on five hits over 6 1/3 innings.

It looked like Eovaldi might be in for a long night after he served up a solo home run to Josh Donaldson in the first inning, but the pitcher settled down to post one of his better starts this season. He struck out three and walked two over his 6 1/3 innings of work. This all might seem unspectacular, but given his propensity to allow games to slip away the deeper he pitches, he hung in nicely against a tough Blue Jay offense. Eovaldi holds a 4.15 ERA and 1.47 WHIP this season, numbers he'll carry into a road start against the Indians next week.
Aug 7 - 11:01 PM

Nathan Eovaldi yielded three runs over 5 2/3 innings in Friday's 13-6 win over the White Sox.

It wasn't the sharpest outing from Eovaldi, as he allowed seven hits (including a two-run homer to Jose Abreu) and three walks while throwing 117 pitches. The Yankees would have liked to see him pitch deeper into the game, but he had the benefit of a ton of run support, so he improved to 11-2 on the year. The hard-throwing right-hander will bring a 4.30 ERA into a start against the Red Sox next week at home.
Aug 1 - 1:46 AM

Nathan Eovaldi pitched well in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Twins, hurling eight-plus innings of two-run ball.

Eovaldi struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. An RBI groundout by Torii Hunter brought home a run in the third inning, but Eovaldi otherwise kept the scoreboard clean until the ninth inning. He scattered eight hits over his eight-plus innings of work. Starts like this are part of what makes Eovaldi a frustrating pitcher. He has the stuff to succeed on any given day, yet his numbers do not belay that fact--on the season, he holds a 4.27 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 80/30 K/BB ratio over 112 2/3 innings. He'll take those inconsistent stats on the road against the White Sox next time he toes the rubber.
