Nathan Eovaldi delivered seven innings of one-run ball Monday in the Yankees' rout of the Royals.
Eovaldi was staked to an eight-run lead after the bottom of the first and an 11-run lead after the bottom of the second, so he went into cruise control against the visiting Royals. Kansas City racked up eight hits, but Eovaldi walked just one and limited the Royals' scoring to a Jarrod Dyson RBI single in the top of the fifth. Eovaldi is now 4-1 with a 4.27 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 40/14 K/BB ratio in 52 2/3 innings this season for New York. The hard-throwing 25-year-old right-hander carries some breakout potential.

Date:

Nathan Eovaldi surrendered five runs in 4 1/3 innings, taking the no-decision in Tuesday's 10-inning 8-6 loss to the Nationals.

Ian Desmond and Bryce Harper each hit solo home runs off of Eovaldi in the first inning. He settled down for a while before ostensibly tiring in the fifth as the Nats strung together four consecutive one-out hits following a leadoff walk to cut the Yankees' lead to 6-5 at the time. Overall, Eovaldi gave up seven hits, walked two, and struck out five. The talented right-hander has yet to find his stride, now with a 4.73 ERA, a 1.53 WHIP, and a 36/13 K/BB ratio in 45 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Royals at home in his next start.
May 19 - 11:16 PM

Nathan Eovaldi faltered late, giving up four runs in 7 1/3 innings for a no-decision as the Yankees lost 4-2 to the Rays on Tuesday.

Eovaldi brought a shutout into the seventh, but allowed the Rays to tie the game at 2-2 on a David DeJesus two-run single. He was on the hook for two more runs in the eighth, giving up a walk and a single before giving way to Dellin Betances, who allowed both inherited runners to score. On the evening, the Rays scratched out six hits and two walks while striking out six times. Eovaldi now has a 4.14 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP, and a 31/11 K/BB ratio in 41 1/3 innings. He'll make a road start versus the Royals next.
May 12 - 9:56 PM

Nathan Eovaldi surrendered three runs in 5 2/3 innings in a victory over the Orioles on Thursday.

Eovaldi has just managed to hold it together every time out, leaving him with a 3-0 record and a 3.97 ERA. On the other hand, he has a 1.56 WHIP and he's competed six innings just twice in six starts. Marlins fans know what that's about, though. Eovaldi should be more of an asset at the back of the Yankees rotation than he will be in any fantasy rotation.
May 7 - 10:48 PM

Nathan Eovaldi pitched well in Saturday's victory over the Red Sox, allowing just two runs on seven hits over his 6 2/3 innings of work.

The hard-throwing right-hander struck out a pair and walked one on the afternoon. He was tagged for a solo homer by Dustin Pedroia in the fourth inning and an RBI double by Mookie Betts in the seventh, but was able to keep the Red Sox as bay otherwise. Now 2-0 on the season, he'll carry a 3.81 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 22/6 K/BB ratio into Thursday's matchup against the Orioles.
May 2 - 4:25 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was hit hard in a no-decision against the Mets on Sunday, allowing four runs on seven hits in just 4 1/3 innings of work.

The hard-throwing right-hander did manage to rack up six strikeouts on the night without issuing a free pass, but couldn't get himself out of a jam in the fifth inning to earn a potential victory. While he owns an impressive 20/5 K/BB ratio through 21 2/3 innings on the season, Eovaldi will carry a 4.15 and worrisome 1.66 WHIP into Sunday's matchup against the Red Sox in Boston.
Apr 26 - 10:54 PM

Nathan Eovaldi held the Tigers to one run over seven innings to record his first win of the season on Tuesday.

Eovaldi scattered eight hits and a walk while striking out four on the evening. The Tigers entered the game boasting one of the American League's top offenses, so holding it to a run is a feat. The only run came in Eovaldi's final inning, when Yoenis Cespedes hit a sacrifice fly. Now with a 3.12 ERA, Eovaldi will look for his second win of the season in his next start at home against the Mets.
Apr 21 - 11:11 PM

Nathan Eovaldi yielded two runs in five innings and struck out nine against the Orioles on Wednesday.

Eovaldi had a nice spring, but his first two regular-season starts have resembled many of those from his 2014 campaign with the Marlins. Neither has lasted six innings, and he currently has a 1.94 WHIP to go along with his 4.35 ERA. There's still some upside here, but it's not likely to result in any mixed-league value.
Apr 15 - 10:36 PM

Nathan Eovaldi took a no-decision in his Yankees debut on Friday after allowing three runs over 5 1/3 innings against the Red Sox.

Eovaldi was pulled after allowing a two-run single to Daniel Nava in the top of the sixth. He gave up eight hits, one walk, and hit a batter while striking out one. He was in line for the loss before the Yankees battled back in the bottom of the ninth. Eovaldi's velocity gets a lot of attention, which is why he has been considered a breakout candidate for the past two years, but he remains a work in progress.
Apr 11 - 1:13 AM

Nathan Eovaldi fanned five in 4 2/3 scoreless innings Sunday against the Astros.

Eovaldi had been doing his work in minor league games, so this was his first start in 14 days. He's certainly pitched well in his spring appearances, allowing one run over 13 2/3 innings and posting a 14/0 K/BB ratio. We certainly liked his fantasy potential better than Miami than in New York, but the Yankees aren't going to regret trading Martin Prado for him.
Mar 29 - 4:50 PM

Nathan Eovaldi pitched four scoreless innings and struck out three Sunday against a Phillies split-squad.

It was a rather light lineup he was facing, but Eovaldi excelled once again, limiting the Phillies to a pair of singles. He got six outs on the ground. For the spring, Eovaldi has allowed one run and struck out nine in nine innings.
Mar 15 - 3:56 PM

Nathan Eovaldi struck out five in three scoreless innings Monday in relief versus the Rays.

Eovaldi didn't throw a lot of splitters today, but he did get one of his five strikeouts with the pitch. His velocity has been great in both of his outings, and he's allowed one run in five innings thus far.
Mar 9 - 4:48 PM

Nathan Eovaldi yielded one run and two hits in two innings Wednesday in his start versus the Phillies.

Eovaldi got his one strikeout on a pretty good splitter, so that was nice to see. He also had his usual velocity today, topping out at 98 mph. The Yankees will be working with him on his offspeed stuff all spring.
Mar 4 - 3:45 PM

Nathan Eovaldi said this week that he has already gelled with Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild.

Eovaldi was an early-arriver to Yankees camp and has been working with Rothschild on refining his promising raw stuff. "He's awesome," Eovaldi said about his new pitching coach. "It's going to be a lot of fun working with him this year." The 24-year-old right-hander is one of the hardest throwers in the majors and could be in for a breakout 2015 if he's able to make some slight improvements. New York acquired Eovaldi from the Marlins in December as part of the five-player Martin Prado trade.
Feb 12 - 9:53 AM

Yankees and RHP Nathan Eovaldi avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.3 million contract.

It's a nice raise for Eovaldi in his first year of arbitration eligibility. The Yankees are hoping he'll put everything together after flashing plenty of promise in Miami.
