Nathan Eovaldi whiffed seven while allowing just one unearned run over six innings but took a no-decision in Wednesday's loss to the Braves.
Eovaldi needed 104 pitches to complete the six frames but he surrendered just five hits and a walk. The run came home on an RBI single from Ryan Doumit after Chris Johnson had reached base on an Adeiny Hechavarria error. While he has just one win in his first five starts, Eovaldi boasts a 2.87 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 30/4 K/BB ratio over 31 1/3 innings. He'll have a rematch against the Braves next week. Apr 23 - 3:44 PM

Nathan Eovaldi pitched well in a no-decision against the Mariners on Friday, allowing three runs (one earned) on seven hits over six innings.

Eovaldi punched out four on the evening while walking two. He’s been fairly impressive in the early part of the season, compiling a 3.55 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 23/3 K/BB ratio through 25 1/3 innings. He should be owned in all mixed leagues at this point, and has a decent matchup on tap against the Braves in Atlanta on Wednesday.
Apr 18 - 10:30 PM

Nathan Eovaldi surrendered four runs over 6 1/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Phillies.

The Phillies won the game on a walkoff home run by Jimmy Rollins in the bottom of the 10th inning. Eovaldi was tagged for two runs in the bottom of the first inning and two more in the bottom of the third. His stuff looks great, but consistency could be an issue all year for the hard-throwing 24-year-old right-hander. The Mariners are up next.
Apr 12 - 10:45 PM

Nathan Eovaldi allowed a three-run home run in the seventh inning to mar what was an otherwise fantastic start, taking the loss against the Padres on Sunday.

Eovaldi was one out away from seven scoreless innings when Alexi Amarista took him deep for the three-run shot. On the day, the right-hander struck out eight Padres, giving up just six hits. In two starts, Eovaldi now has 14 strikeouts to just one walk. He'll look to keep rolling next week against the Phillies.
Apr 6 - 4:02 PM

Nathan Eovaldi got the win in Tuesday's start against the Rockies, holding them to two runs over six innings of work.

Eovaldi was on point, allowing only six hits and a walk while striking out six. One half of the return in the Hanley Ramirez trade, Eovaldi pitched well in 18 starts for the Marlins last season and is a decent bet to emerge as a reliable contributor in the middle of their starting rotation.
Apr 1 - 9:47 PM

Nathan Eovaldi surrendered one run and four hits in four innings Sunday in a loss to the Yankees.

Eovaldi struck out three and walked none. He's allowed just the one earned run and posted an 8/1 K/BB ratio in eight innings this spring. Health is a question mark with the 24-year-old, but he has considerable upside as the Marlins' likely No. 3 starter.
Mar 16 - 6:02 PM

Nathan Eovaldi struck out four in two scoreless innings Thursday versus the Red Sox.

Eovaldi was supposed to pitch three innings, but he wasn't quite efficient enough to do so. Still, he and his high-90s fastball overmatched a Red Sox lineup filled primarily with prospects.
Mar 6 - 5:07 PM's Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins are not willing to trade Nathan Eovaldi as they look for an impact bat.

The Fish view Eovaldi as someone that can anchor their rotation along with Jose Fernandez for many years. Frisaro lists Jacob Turner as a "more realistic trade piece." The Marlins have eyed Mark Trumbo, among others, as they look to add a corner infielder.

Nathan Eovaldi delivered a strong effort in Saturday's no-decision against the Tigers, allowing only one run on seven hits in his six innings of work.

Eovaldi walked two and punched out five on the night. The only run that crossed the plate against him came on an Alex Avila sacrifice fly in the fourth frame. The 23-year-old right-hander excelled in his 18 starts for the Fish this season, compiling a 4-6 record, 3.39 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 78/40 K/BB ratio in 106 1/3. He'll surely have a spot secured in the Marlins rotation to begin the 2014 season, and makes for a nice late-round flyer in mixed leagues.

Nathan Eovaldi pitched 7 2/3 scoreless innings, combining with two relievers on a 4-0 shutout of the Phillies on Monday.

Eovaldi has shown big-time velocity when healthy this year, though it still hasn't resulted in a great strikeout rate (73 in 100 1/3 innings). He'll be an interesting sleeper next year, though the injury risk will scare us off if he starts getting overly hyped.

Nathan Eovaldi allowed three runs -- two earned -- on four hits and four walks over just five frames but got a no-decision in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Phillies.

Eovaldi certainly wasn't sharp in his first start since being scratched with a back injury, as he required 90 pitches to cover the five frames. He was bailed out by a two-run homer from Giancarlo Stanton in the sixth before the Fish won it in extras. Eovaldi has been up and down of late but still holds a 3.79 ERA for the season. He'll take on the Phillies again next week, this time in Miami.

Nathan Eovaldi (back) has shown improvement since being scratched from Thursday's start against the Braves, and could return to the rotation to take on the Phillies next week.

The 23-year-old right-hander has been one of the bright spots in the Marlins rotation this season, registering a 3.80 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 63/32 K/BB ratio over 87 2/3 innings. Brian Flynn started in his place on Thursday, and would likely make another start if Eovaldi is unable to return this week.

Nathan Eovaldi has been scratched from his scheduled Thursday start because of back tightness.

Brian Flynn will take the mound against the Braves instead. Eovaldi was hammered for five earned runs over just three innings in a loss Saturday to the Nationals. It's not certain when he might be able to pitch again.
Thu, Sep 12, 2013 10:41:00 AM

Nathan Eovaldi was pounded for five earned runs in three innings Saturday in a loss to the Nationals.

Eovaldi tossed seven scoreless innings last Sunday against a very good Braves team, but he looked like a different pitcher on Saturday in Miami. The young righty gave up nine hits -- including two home runs -- while falling to 3-6 on the year. He'll get the Braves again next and seems doubtful to match his previous performance.
Sat, Sep 7, 2013 10:19:00 PM

Nathan Eovaldi threw seven scoreless innings in Sunday's win over the Braves.

It was a much needed victory, as Eovaldi hadn't won a decision since July 12. He's now 3-5 with a 3.40 ERA and 1.29 WHIP on the season. His next start will likely come on extended rest Saturday against the Nationals.
