Nathan Eovaldi gave up four runs -- two earned -- over six innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cardinals.

If the Marlins would have pulled off the win, it would have been their first series sweep of the Cardinals since 1996. Eovaldi struggled, yielding only one walk but eight hits while falling to 6-7 on the season. He still has a cool 3.96 ERA and 1.21 WHIP, and will try to get back on track next week in a start at home against the Rangers.

Nathan Eovaldi was brilliant in Friday's victory over the Reds, scattering just five hits over eight shutout innings.

Eovaldi racked up six strikeouts on the evening and issued only one free pass. It's his second straight strong start after allowing just one run over seven innings against these same Reds in his last outing. Now 6-6 on the season, he'll carry a 3.99 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 105/31 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's start against the Cardinals.
Aug 8 - 10:11 PM

Nathan Eovaldi pitched seven innings of one-run ball against the Reds on Saturday.

Unfortunately for Eovaldi, Homer Bailey was every bit as good and the game was decided by the bullpen. Eovaldi struck out six over his seven innings of work. He gave up just two hits and walked only two. The 24-year old has been a bit erratic this season, posting sterling efforts like this one, as well as starts like his eight run disaster against the Giants. And that's just in the last month. On the whole, his ERA sits about where you'd expect it to sit for somebody so boom/bust. He's at 4.22, to go with a (slightly more encouraging) 1.22 WHIP. The talent's there. He just needs to develop a little consistency.
Aug 3 - 12:40 AM

Nathan Eovaldi was ineffective again Monday, yielding five runs in 5 1/3 innings versus the Nationals.

In his last 11 starts, Eovaldi has given up five or more runs six times and won just once. His peripherals suggest that his ERA should be significantly better than his current 4.37 mark, but he just hasn't been able to maintain the same kind of effectiveness out of the stretch as he has in the windup this year. There's little reason to hang on to him in a shallow mixed league.
Jul 28 - 10:52 PM

Nathan Eovaldi's struggles continued on Wednesday, taking a loss after allowing five runs in seven innings to the Braves.

Eovaldi is now 0-3 with a 6.39 ERA in his last five starts. He got off to a great start, posting fantastic numbers into the middle of June, but has slumped terribly since. On Wednesday, he gave up six hits, walked two, and struck out only two. His ERA climbs up to 4.20 along with a 1.25 WHIP and 90/26 K/BB ratio. Eovaldi will try to turn things around when he helps the Marlins open up a homestand against the Nationals on Monday.
Jul 23 - 10:08 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was knocked around for a season-high eight runs over four-plus innings Friday in a loss to the Giants.

Eovaldi was pulled after he gave up four runs on four hits to begin the fifth inning. He struck out five and walked one in the loss. He now sits at 5-5 on the year and owns a 4.08 ERA across 20 starts, his highest since early April. He'll attempt to bounce back next week against the Braves.
Jul 18 - 10:37 PM

Nathan Eovaldi tossed seven innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Diamondbacks.

Eovaldi was fantastic, yielding only four hits and one walk, but the Miami offense didn't provide much support and Steve Cishek blew a save in extra innings. Eovaldi owns a cool 3.61 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 119 2/3 innings this season. He'll get the Giants next.
Jul 9 - 6:47 PM

Nathan Eovaldi fell to 5-4 on the year after allowing three runs over six innings Friday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Eovaldi held the Cardinals scoreless over his first five innings of work, but he unraveled in the sixth by giving up three runs on four hits and a wild pitch. He struck out two and walked two in the loss and now has just one win in his last seven starts. He'll attempt to change that next week when he faces the Diamondbacks on the road next week.
Jul 4 - 11:02 PM

Nathan Eovaldi scattered six hits over 6 1/3 innings and combined with four relievers on a shutout of the Phillies on Monday.

The bullpen held the Phillies hitless over the last 2 2/3 innings. Eovaldi was coming off a pair of bad starts, giving up 11 runs over 10 2/3 innings versus the Pirates and Cubs, but there's still a lot to like about his numbers this year and there's certainly no doubting his fastball. Unfortunately, he does get the A's next, so mixed leaguers will probably want him reserved for that one.
Jun 23 - 11:04 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was touched up for five runs over six frames in Wednesday's loss to the Cubs.

He was doing just fine until the sixth, but the Cubs broke out that inning with four hits -- including a three-run homer from Nate Schierholtz -- and four runs. He gave up nine hits on the day but didn't walk anyone and struck out two. Eovaldi has now put up two straight clunkers, but they followed a string of four straight great outings. He'll take a 3.76 ERA into Philadelphia next week.
Jun 18 - 3:44 PM

Marlins activated RHP Nathan Eovaldi from the paternity leave list.

Eovaldi will start on Wednesday against the Cubs after being away for a few days to attend the birth of his child. The hard-throwing right-hander boasts a 3.71 ERA and 1.21 WHIP over 14 starts this season.

Jun 15 - 11:08 AM

Nate Eovaldi was knocked around for six runs over 4 2/3 innings Friday against the Pirates.

Eovaldi had allowed just six earned runs combined over his last four starts, but the Pirates hit him hard in this one. He gave up 10 hits (which matched a season-high) and one walk before getting the hook in the fifth inning. The six runs allowed also tied a season-high. His ERA now sits at 3.71 for the year, his highest since mid-April. He'll attempt to bounce back next week against the Cubs in another home start.
Jun 14 - 12:05 AM

Nathan Eovaldi held the Braves to two runs over eight innings but took a no-decision in a loss Sunday.

He struck out four while allowing six hits and walking no one. Eovaldi had thrown just 98 pitches but was pulled before the ninth in favor of Steve Cishek, who served up a two-run homer. The right-hander has posted three straight quality starts after his hiccup in San Francisco last month to lower his ERA to 3.24. He gets the Cubs on the road next weekend.
