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.

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.
Jan 16 - 5:47 PM

Yankees acquired RHP Nathan Eovaldi, 1B/OF Garrett Jones and RHP Domingo German from the Marlins in exchange for INF/OF Martin Prado, RHP David Phelps and cash considerations.

Eovaldi has underperformed relative to his stuff to this point, posting a 4.07 ERA with just 321 strikeouts over 460 big league innings. However, he'll turn just 25 in February and is among the hardest-throwing starters in the game. The move from Marlins Park to Yankee Stadium hurts his fantasy value, but the stuff is there for a potential breakout if some tweaks can be made.

Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees and Marlins are on the verge of a deal that would send Nathan Eovaldi to New York and Martin Prado to Miami.

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson says that the trade would also include Garrett Jones going to New York and David Phelps going to Miami, and the New York Post's Joel Sherman hears that the Yankees will receive pitching prospect Domingo German. Eovaldi has produced inconsistent results to this point with a 4.07 ERA, but he throws really hard and will turn just 25 in February. The Marlins are expected to put Prado at third base, which means Casey McGehee is headed to the bench. Phelps should slide into Eovaldi's rotation spot in Miami, while Jones looks like a backup option at first base and designated hitter in New York.

Nathan Eovaldi allowed two earned runs over seven innings Saturday in a loss to the Nationals.

Eovaldi gave up eight hits and walked three in his final start of the 2014 season. The 24-year-old right-hander finishes 6-14 with a 4.37 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 142/43 K/BB ratio in 199 2/3 innings.

Nathan Eovaldi pitched well but was saddled with the loss Sunday, allowing two runs over six frames against the Nationals.

Eovaldi struck out four, didn't walk anyone and yielded seven hits, throwing 89 pitches over his six innings. The Nats only got to him in one inning (the fifth), but it was enough to prevail in the pitchers' duel. Eovaldi had allowed 10 runs over just 8 1/3 frames across his last two starts, so this was a nice bounce-back outing. His final start will come next weekend in a rematch versus Washington.

Nathan Eovaldi struggled against the Mets on Tuesday, yielding six runs over 4 1/3 innings en route to his 12th loss.

The second half has not been kind to Eovaldi, who now sports a 6.04 ERA in 12 starts since the All-Star break. The right-hander was pummeled in the fourth and again in the fifth, when he was chased with one out in the frame. Overall, he gave up six hits, walked two, and struck out two. Eovaldi now sits on a 4.48 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 133/40 K/BB ratio. He'll match up against the Nationals at home on Sunday next.

Nathan Eovaldi struggled, allowing four runs in four innings as the Marlins lost 4-2 to the Brewers on Thursday.

Eovaldi gave up a pair of solo home runs: one to Ryan Braun in the second inning, and another to Matt Clark in the fourth. Overall, he gave up eight hits and walked two while striking out only one. Eovaldi has had a shaky second half and now has a 4.29 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP and 131/38 K/BB ratio. He'll try to rebound on Tuesday when he takes on the Mets in New York.

Nathan Eovaldi was a tough-luck loser against the Braves on Sunday, surrendering just one run on nine hits over his 6 2/3 innings.

Eovaldi punched out six on the afternoon while walking just one. The only blemish against him and offense in the game was a solo homer by Evan Gattis in the second inning. Eovaldi will look to get back in the win column when he takes on these same Braves at home on Saturday.
