Nathan Eovaldi flirted with a no-hitter and ultimately tossed seven shutout frames in Monday's 3-1 win over the Rangers.
Eovaldi had issued just one walk and had a runner reach on an error before Nomar Mazara singled to lead off the seventh inning. He wound up allowing two hits on the night, struck out six and walked a pair. It was a great performance that's even more impressive when you consider the Rangers' big left-handed bats. While he now has a pedestrian 4.38 ERA, Eovaldi boasts a 28/5 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings this season. He'll get the Red Sox in Boston this weekend. Apr 25 - 11:16 PM

Nathan Eovaldi turned in a quality start during Wednesday's loss to the A's, yielding three runs on eight hits over six innings.

Eovaldi struck out seven and walked one. The A's pounced on him for all three runs on his line in the fourth inning, when he surrendered an RBI double to Chris Coghlan, an RBI single to Josh Reddick and a sacrifice fly to Stephen Vogt. Through three starts, the 26-year-old flamethrower holds a tough 6.11 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 22/3 K/BB ratio across 17 2/3 innings. Those numbers will inevitably drop over the course of the season, but Eovaldi remains a maddening pitcher to own for fantasy purposes. His results simply don't line up with the shining quality of his stuff. He will take to the road to face the Rangers in his next scheduled start.

Nathan Eovaldi was solid but made two costly mistakes, resulting in four runs, in Thursday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Eovaldi was holding a two-run lead in the fifth when Josh Donaldson ambushed a hanging splitter for a three-run homer to deep center. An inning later, Troy Tulowitzki took Eovaldi deep for a solo shot, with those two blasts accounting for all four of the Jays' runs. In total, Eovaldi gave up seven hits and two walks while striking out eight over 6 2/3 innings. His first two starts have left the 26-year-old with a 6.94 ERA and 1.29 WHIP, but he's got a good shot at his first victory Wednesday against the Athletics.
Apr 14 - 9:35 PM

Despite seven strikeouts, Nathan Eovaldi allowed five runs over five innings Thursday against the Astros.

It was a bizarre outing. In the first, third and fifth innings, Eovaldi retired Jose Altuve, George Springer and Carlos Correa in order. The rest of the order gave him problems, though, as he allowed three hits and multiple runs in both the second and fourth. But that is Nathan Eovaldi for you. The stuff has been better than the results his entire career to date.
Apr 7 - 7:46 PM

Nathan Eovaldi surrendered one run on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in his final spring start against the Marlins on Friday.

Eovaldi struggled with his command during the outing, issuing four walks while striking out three. With limited strikeout potential, he's an underwhelming late round option in mixed league drafts but does have appeal in AL-only formats.
Apr 2 - 12:39 AM

Nathan Eovaldi yielded five runs -- four earned -- in 5 1/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Twins.

Eovaldi struck out five and walked two. He hasn't gotten as much attention this spring as he did while working on his splitter last spring, but he should be a decent enough mid-rotation guy for the Yankees. Shallow mixed leaguers can do a little better.
Mar 27 - 3:44 PM

Nathan Eovaldi worked a pair of perfect frames against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

Eovaldi was making his spring debut after recovering from a mild groin injury. He still has plenty of time to get ready for the first week of the season.

Nathan Eovaldi (groin) will throw a bullpen session Thursday.

Eovaldi was scratched from a scheduled side session on Monday due to groin tightness, but it's not a major concern. Fortunately, his elbow appears to be fine. The 26-year-old posted a 4.20 ERA and 121/49 K/BB ratio over 154 1/3 innings last season and could be poised to take a step forward in 2016 with increased usage of his splitter.
Mar 1 - 1:16 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was scratched from a scheduled side session Monday due to groin tightness.

This sounds like it was mostly a precautionary measure. Eovaldi will try throwing off a mound on Wednesday and won't fall behind the other starters in Yankees camp if he is able to pull that off. The hard-throwing right-hander had an up-and-down debut season with the Yankees in 2015, finishing with a 4.20 ERA and 121 strikeouts in 154 1/3 innings.
Feb 29 - 11:00 AM

Yankees and RHP Nathan Eovaldi avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.6 million contract.

It's the exact midpoint of figures that were exchanged last week. Eovaldi put up a 4.20 ERA over 27 starts in 2015 in his first season with the Yankees.
Jan 19 - 5:13 PM

Nathan Eovaldi requested $6.3 million and was offered $4.9 million by the Yankees when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

MLBTradeRumors.com projected Eovaldi to earn $5.7 million in his second year of arbitration eligibility. The right-hander put up a 4.20 ERA over 27 starts in 2015.
Jan 15 - 5:29 PM

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.

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.
Mon, Sep 28, 2015 04:04:00 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."

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.
