Nathan Eovaldi let in four runs in six innings and was charged with a loss to the Astros on Wednesday.

Eovaldi falls to 1-3 with a 4.91 ERA in five starts this year. He's given up eight home runs in just 29 1/3 innings. Jun 20 - 11:36 PM

Nathan Eovaldi was charged with five runs over 7 1/3 innings in a loss to the Yankees on Friday.

Eovaldi was better than the line showed, as he held the Yankees to two runs through seven innings before running out of gas in the eighth. He left with the bases loaded, setting up Gary Sanchez to plate three runs on a double against Jonny Venters. Eovaldi allowed eight hits against his former team while striking out five batters and walking just one. He had 13 swinging strikes in his 101 pitches. Eovaldi now has a 4.63 ERA and 16/3 K/BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings over four starts since making his return from Tommy John surgery. He’s always teased with fantasy potential, but owners would do well to leave him inactive for a matchup against the Astros next week.

Nathan Eovaldi was charged with the loss while allowing three runs over five innings on Sunday against the Mariners.

All three runs allowed by Eovaldi came off of homers; two on a shot by Mike Zunino, and one off the bat from Nelson Cruz. If you can take away those hits -- and you cannot -- Eovaldi was solid, as he didn't walk anyone and struck out three. In three starts with the Rays in 2018, the right-hander owns a 3.94 ERA with 11 strikeouts and two walks in 16 innings.

Nathan Eovaldi was charged with four runs over five innings in Tuesday’s loss to the Nationals.

Eovaldi spun six hitless innings last week in his first start for the Rays, but his second outing didn’t go as well. A Matt Adams home run got the scoring going and the Nats added three additional hits and runs, including a Wilmer Difo RBI triple. Eovaldi has been and still is intriguing because of his velocity, but he’s always been inconsistent and he might be even more so in his first year back from Tommy John surgery. He gets the Mariners at home on Sunday.
Jun 5 - 9:48 PM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) allowed just one walk across six no-hit and scoreless innings with four strikeouts in a victory Wednesday in Oakland.

Welcome back, Eovaldi. He rejoined the rotation, making his first start since August 2016 after making his way back from a pair of elbow surgeries. This was a rather surprising result considering he was tuned up for eight earned runs over four innings in his final rehab start with Triple-A Durham. He'll be a popular pluck off of the waiver wire after this gem, and the Rays hope the good pitching continues. If he can prove his health into the summer he likely will fetch a decent return at the trade deadline.
May 31 - 1:11 AM

Rays activated RHP Nathan Eovaldi from the 60-day disabled list.

Eovaldi is set to join the Rays' rotation on Wednesday against the Athletics. It will be his first major league start since August 2016 and he got lit up for eight earned runs over just four innings in his final minor league rehab outing with Triple-A Durham. There's not much fantasy appeal here at the moment.
May 30 - 1:44 AM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) will make his Rays debut on Wednesday versus the Athletics.

It was initially going to be Monday or Tuesday, but now we have an official date. Eovaldi has successfully rehabbed from two elbow surgeries but was knocked around in his last rehab start. Fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach.
May 25 - 4:23 PM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) will make his 2018 debut Monday or Tuesday against the Athletics.

Eovaldi got knocked around in his last rehab start for Triple-A Durham (4 IP, 10 H, 8 ER Wednesday at Gwinnett) but appears to finally be healthy following a long recovery from Tommy John surgery. The hard-throwing right-hander last pitched in the majors in 2016, going 9-8 with a 4.76 ERA over 24 appearances including 21 starts for the Yankees.
May 24 - 5:09 PM

Rays transferred RHP Nathan Eovaldi from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

He's now not eligible to return until May 28. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Vidal Nuno.
May 23 - 3:31 PM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow, rib) will make one more rehab start Wednesday before likely rejoining the Rays.

There was some thought that his most recent outing Friday would be the last before activation, but the club wants to get him one more tune-up, it seems. Eovaldi hasn't appeared in a major league game since August 2016 due to elbow issues and, more recently, a right rib muscle strain.
May 19 - 6:54 PM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow, rib) will make another rehab start Friday with Triple-A Durham.

If it goes well, he could join the Rays' rotation next week. Eovaldi was scratched from his last scheduled rehab start because of a right rib muscle strain, but he threw a successful bullpen session Tuesday at Tropicana Field. The 28-year-old right-hander hasn't appeared in a major league game since August 2016.
May 15 - 6:20 PM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow, rib) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

Eovaldi was scratched from his most recent rehab start due to a right rib cage muscle strain, but it evidently wasn't much of a concern. He could still join the Rays' rotation in late May, making just one more rehab start instead of two.
May 14 - 5:38 PM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) was scratched from his next minor league rehab start due to a right rib muscle strain.

Eovaldi was on track to make his third rehab start on Tuesday, setting up a potential return somewhere in the range of May 23-25. That will obviously be pushed back now, though the exact timetable isn't known. Eovaldi missed all of last season rehabbing from Tommy John surgery and underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove loose bodies from his right elbow in late March.
May 14 - 3:59 PM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) allowed one run over two innings in his second rehab start Wednesday with High-A Charlotte.

Eovaldi yielded two hits, including a solo home run, but he struck out three and walked none in the 32-pitch outing. He is expected to make two more minor league rehab starts, with an eye on joining the Rays' rotation toward the end of this month. The 28-year-old right-hander underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove loose bodies from his right elbow in late March. He missed the entire 2017 season following Tommy John surgery.
May 10 - 10:18 AM

Nathan Eovaldi (elbow) is aiming to join the Rays' rotation during their May 22-24 series against the Red Sox.

Eovaldi will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Friday. The right-hander looked good in spring training after making his way back from Tommy John surgery but then had arthroscopic surgery to remove loose bodies from his right elbow in late March. He hasn't appeared in a major league game since August of 2016.
