Nathan Eovaldi yielded three runs over 5 2/3 innings in Friday's 13-6 win over the White Sox.
It wasn't the sharpest outing from Eovaldi, as he allowed seven hits (including a two-run homer to Jose Abreu) and three walks while throwing 117 pitches. The Yankees would have liked to see him pitch deeper into the game, but he had the benefit of a ton of run support, so he improved to 11-2 on the year. The hard-throwing right-hander will bring a 4.30 ERA into a start against the Red Sox next week at home. Aug 1 - 1:46 AM

Nathan Eovaldi pitched well in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Twins, hurling eight-plus innings of two-run ball.

Eovaldi struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. An RBI groundout by Torii Hunter brought home a run in the third inning, but Eovaldi otherwise kept the scoreboard clean until the ninth inning. He scattered eight hits over his eight-plus innings of work. Starts like this are part of what makes Eovaldi a frustrating pitcher. He has the stuff to succeed on any given day, yet his numbers do not belay that fact--on the season, he holds a 4.27 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 80/30 K/BB ratio over 112 2/3 innings. He'll take those inconsistent stats on the road against the White Sox next time he toes the rubber.
Jul 26 - 5:22 PM

Nathan Eovaldi took a no-decision, limiting the Orioles to two runs in 5 2/3 innings on Tuesday.

Both runs came in his final inning of work, one of which was allowed in by reliever Justin Wilson after Eovaldi left the game. Eovaldi, overall, gave up four hits and three walks while striking out four. The right-hander hasn't lost a decision since June 16 but has a mediocre 4.43 ERA with a 1.50 WHIP and a 75/29 K/BB ratio in 103 2/3 innings. Eovaldi matches up with the Twins in Minnesota next.
Jul 21 - 10:27 PM

Nathan Eovaldi gave up three runs in five innings, but the Yankees hung on to help him win his ninth game of the season on Sunday against the Red Sox.

Eovaldi gave up seven hits, walked none, and struck out four in the effort. He hasn't pitched to a 9-2 record, but he's avoided disaster starts and the Yankees have provided him with a lot of run support. He heads into the All-Star break sporting a 4.50 ERA, 1.52 WHIP, and a 71/26 K/BB ratio over 98 innings. Eovaldi's next start will come at home against the Orioles.
Jul 12 - 5:24 PM

Nathan Eovaldi limited the Athletics to two runs in 5 1/3 innings, but took a no-decision as the Yankees lost in 10 innings on Tuesday.

Eovaldi allowed run-scoring singles in the first and third innings, accounting for both runs. He got Ben Zobrist to ground out for the first out in the sixth inning before departing at 86 pitches in favor of Chasen Shreve. Eovaldi gave up six hits and a walk while striking out four. He's put together four solid outings in a row, though he hasn't been able to escape the sixth inning in his last two. He owns a 4.45 ERA with a 1.53 WHIP and a 67/26 K/BB ratio in 93 innings. Eovaldi will close out the first half in Boston against the Red Sox.
Jul 7 - 10:30 PM

Nathan Eovaldi kept the Angels off the board over 5 1/3 innings, earning his eighth win on Wednesday.

Eovaldi wasn't exactly dominating, but he was effective, throwing 94 pitches in total while scattering five hits with three walks and three strikeouts. All five hits were singles. The right-hander has the talent, but it hasn't been borne out by the results yet. He has an 8-2 record with a 4.52 ERA, a 1.54 WHIP, and a 63/25 K/BB ratio over 87 2/3 innings. Eovaldi will match up with the Athletics at home next.
Jul 1 - 10:44 PM

Nathan Eovaldi will start Wednesday against the Angels.

In turn, Adam Warren will be moved to the bullpen. Eovaldi allowed two runs over six innings against the Astros in his last start and owns a 4.81 ERA and 60/22 K/BB ratio over 82 1/3 innings on the year.
Jun 30 - 8:26 AM

Nathan Eovaldi improved to 7-2 on the year after holding the Astros to two runs over six innings on Friday.

Eovaldi allowed five hits and two walks while striking out six batters. He was in position for the loss after his six innings of work, but Chris Young put him in front with a three-run homer in the top of the seventh. The hard-throwing right-hander has now turned in back-to-back decent outings since his disaster outing against the Marlins on June 16, but it's still difficult to trust him in mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 27 - 12:00 AM

Nathan Eovaldi improved to 6-2 after Saturday's blowout win over the Tigers, tossing six innings of two-run ball in the 14-3 win.

Eovaldi was the beneficiary of an offensive onslaught by his teammates. By the time the Tigers managed to put a few runs on the board, Eovaldi already held a 13-run advantage. He needed this kind of easy start, especially after he allowed eight runs in the first inning to the Marlins in his last outing. For the year, he holds a 4.95 ERA and 1.57 WHIP. The numbers aren't great, but he'll try to improve them when he takes to the road to face the Astros in his next start.
Jun 20 - 11:37 PM

Nate Eovaldi recorded just two outs in a disastrous start Tuesday, allowing nine hits and eight runs in the first inning in a loss to the Marlins.

Perhaps most impressively, Eovaldi actually got the first out of the game before allowing six singles and a triple over the next seven hitters. He got a mercy ground out from pitcher David Phelps -- the pitcher for whom he was traded this past winter -- but two more hits ended his evening prematurely. The terrible start raised his ERA from 4.13 to 5.12. If nothing else, the right-hander will be well-rested for Sunday's contest against the Tigers.
Jun 16 - 10:22 PM

Nathan Eovaldi allowed three earned runs over seven innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Nationals.

Washington wound up winning the game in 11 innings. Eovaldi was pretty sharp for his seven frames, striking out four, issuing only one walk, and scattering eight hits. The hard-throwing right-hander will carry a 5-1 record and 4.13 ERA into his next start on the road against the Marlins. When his control is good, he tends to cruise.
Jun 10 - 4:46 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was charged with one run over 5 1/3 innings in Friday's 8-7 win over the Angels.

Eovaldi was pulled after walking the bases loaded in the sixth, with one inherited runner eventually coming around to score. He gave up just four hits while walking four and striking out four. While he came unglued a bit at the end, it was an encouraging start for the young right-hander. He'll carry a 4.16 ERA into a start against the Orioles next week on the road.
Jun 5 - 11:04 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was pulled after allowing three runs and 11 hits in 4 2/3 innings Saturday against the A's.

Eovaldi should be better than this. He just isn't. Through 10 starts, he's sporting a 4.40 ERA and an ugly 1.57 WHIP. He's completely six innings four times. If this keeps up, there's at least a slim chance he'll be sent to the pen when Ivan Nova comes off the DL.
May 31 - 2:30 AM

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.
May 25 - 4:42 PM

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.
