Nathan Eovaldi continued his rotational resurgence in Sunday's win over the Giants, allowing two runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.
Maybe Eovaldi's brief demotion to the bullpen shook something loose in his head. In two starts since returning to the rotation, the occasionally confounding flamethrower has surrendered only three runs across 12 frames. On Sunday, he struck out six, walked two and trotted off the mound two outs into the seventh inning having thrown 118 pitches (79 strikes). His 4.80 ERA and 1.36 WHIP for the season remain undesirable, but if he continues to show a renewed spark in the rotation, he has the arm talent to make for a legitimate fantasy difference-maker. That is a huge "if," though, and we have seen Eovaldi entice only to disappoint in the past. Buyer beware. He will look to continue rebuilding himself in a road start against the Rays next Saturday.

Nathan Eovaldi limited the Orioles to one run over 5 1/3 innings in a win Tuesday.

Making his return to the rotation after briefly being moved to the bullpen, Eovaldi allowed just four hits and walked two in an efficient showing. The win moved him to 8-6 on the year and brought his ERA back down below 5, leaving it at 4.93 through 104 innings of work. Eovaldi's struggles were surprising, but we'll still need to see a few more good starts before recommending him for fantasy.
Jul 19 - 10:13 PM

Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports that the Pirates have talked to the Yankees about the possibility of acquiring Nathan Eovaldi.

The Pirates are on the hunt for pitching upgrades, either to the rotation or bullpen, and Eovaldi has the potential to provide either one. The talks appear to be in the very preliminary stages, and it's unclear what the Yankees would be looking for in return for the hard-throwing right-hander.
Jul 16 - 10:06 AM

Nathan Eovaldi will start Tuesday at home against the Orioles.

Eovaldi was pushed to the bullpen in early July, but he's needed again with the Yankees facing a big chunk of consecutive games coming out of the All-Star break. Eovaldi has a 5.18 ERA in 97 1/3 innings this season.
Jul 15 - 3:57 PM

Nathan Eovaldi will be available out of the bullpen Monday.

And it sounds like he might be in danger of losing his rotation spot permanently, with Chad Green likely taking over. Eovaldi has a rough 5.54 ERA on the season. He's given up 19 homers in 91 innings.
Jul 4 - 12:34 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was lit up for six runs in 4 1/3 innings by the Padres on Friday.

So much for Eovaldi's breakthrough hopes. His ERA is all of the way up to 5.54 now, and his rotation spot has to be in serious danger. He's given up 19 homers in 91 innings after allowing just 10 in 154 1/3 innings last season.
Jul 2 - 2:03 AM

Nathan Eovaldi struggled to keep the ball in the park during Sunday's 7-1 loss to the Twins, yielding four home runs and five total runs over six innings.

Danny Santana connected for a solo homer off Eovaldi in the third inning, but the fireworks show wouldn't reach a crescendo until the sixth. In that frame, Brian Dozier socked a two-run homer, which was followed by solo shots off the bats of Trevor Plouffe and Max Kepler. June has been nothing short of a disaster for Eovaldi, who has allowed 25 runs over his last 20 innings (five starts). His next outing will come on the road against the Padres as the calendar flips over to July.
Jun 26 - 3:35 PM

Nathan Eovaldi allowed four earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Sunday as the Yankees fell to the Twins.

Eovaldi was pitching well until the bottom of the fifth, when the Twins scored their first run of the game on a Max Kepler solo homer. Minnesota then poured on four more in the sixth to drive the right-hander into the visitors' dugout. Eovaldi fell to 6-4 and watched his ERA climb to 5.02. He entered the month of June with a 3.71 ERA.
Jun 19 - 5:26 PM

Nathan Eovaldi struggled again Tuesday, allowing six runs on eight hits over four innings in a loss to the Rockies.

Eovaldi gets a bit of a break because he was at Coors Field, where few pitchers find success, but the start was still his third in a row in which he's allowed five runs or more. As in those other starts, Eovaldi was victimized by the long ball, allowing two homers. He fell to 6-3 with a 4.90 ERA and 1.34 WHIP after owning a 3.71 ERA coming into the month. Eovaldi will try to right the ship Sunday at the Twins.
Jun 15 - 12:36 AM

Nathan Eovaldi pitched poorly Wednesday, giving up five runs on 10 hits and a walk, but took a no-decision as the Yankees pounded the Angels 12-6.

It's not often that a pitcher can escape 10 base knocks and two home runs without getting charged with a loss, but the Yankees' bats came alive in defense of Eovaldi. Eovaldi recorded four strikeouts in his 5 1/3 innings but saw his ERA rise to 4.42 as he prepares for a scary start in Coors Field on Tuesday.
Jun 8 - 11:40 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was hit hard in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday, allowing five runs on eight hits over his 5 1/3 innings.

On the plus side, Eovaldi did punch out five on the night while walking only one. The Orioles put single runs on the board against him in the second and fourth innings, then broke the game open with a three-run uprising that chased him in the sixth. The right-hander will look to improve upon his 4.09 ERA and 1.21 WHIP when he takes on the Angels at home on Wednesday.
Jun 3 - 11:02 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was sharp in Sunday's win over the Rays, firing six innings of one-run ball.

Eovaldi scattered six hits, walked two and struck out seven on the afternoon. The only run to score against him came when Evan Longoria notched an RBI single in the third inning. The 26-year-old right-hander has allowed just two runs over his last 18 innings (three starts) and has pushed his ERA down to 3.71 in the process. He will look to continue this recent strong trend in a road start against the Orioles next time he toes the rubber.
May 29 - 3:57 PM

Nathan Eovaldi allowed just two hits across six shutout innings in Tuesday's 6-0 victory over the Blue Jays.

Eovaldi issued three free passes, but a Troy Tulowitzki single in the second inning and a Jose Bautista single in the third were the only base knocks against the hard-throwing right-hander. He struck out five on the night. Eovaldi has dropped his ERA from 5.46 to 3.95 over his last four starts. He'll face the Rays on Sunday.
May 24 - 10:33 PM

Nathan Eovaldi limited the Diamondbacks to one run and one hit over six innings on Wednesday.

Eovaldi has won three straight starts and four consecutive decisions dating back to April 25. He's showed signs of turning the corner before, only to regress, and we wouldn't rush to pick him up in mixed leagues now. Still, he has a nice 3.48 ERA in his last five starts, even though he's faced very good competition (Texas, Boston twice, Kansas City and now Arizona).
May 19 - 1:20 AM

Nathan Eovaldi allowed three runs over five innings in Thursday's win over the Royals.

Eovaldi wasn't overly impressive, but it didn't matter as he got enough run support to earn his third win. The right-hander allowed eight hits and walked two while striking out three on the night. He still hasn't found his 2015 form, owning a 4.85 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and seven home runs allowed through seven starts. He'll look for that better form Tuesday at the Diamondbacks.
