Eovaldi improved to 6-2 with a win over the Rays on Sunday, allowing one run on six hits and two walks, striking out seven.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Eovaldi improved his ratios to a 3.71 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. Meanwhile his opposing number Jake Odorizzi allowed just one hit, but it was a two-run homer by Starlin Castro, enough to get Eovaldi the win.

Eovaldi (5-2) limited the Blue Jays to two hits and three walks over six innings while striking out five batters in Tuesday's 6-0 win.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The only two hits Eovaldi surrendered were singles, as the Blue Jays struggled to catch up to his premium velocity. The three walks tied a season high for Eovaldi, but he's been a much better job of limiting his free passes compared to last season. His walk rate sits at a respectable 5.9 percent over his 54.2 innings.

Eovaldi (4-2) turned in a great performance in Wednesday's win against the Diamondbacks. He pitched six innings, allowing just one run, one hit and no walks while striking out five.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Eovaldi had his good stuff working as he was in command of the Arizona lineup. After giving up a freakishly-weird leadoff double, Eovaldi retired the next 18 straight before yielding to the bullpen in the seventh after throwing 85 pitches. It was a little strange that manager Joe Giradi didn't let the right-hander go back out there for the seventh, and Eovaldi admitted he was disappointed with that decision. Not to take anything away from the starter, but the Yankees have a deadly combination of relievers for the seventh, eighth and ninth, and the decision to remove Eovaldi was nothing personal.

Eovoldi (3-2) picked up the win Thursday against the Royals, allowing three runs, eight hits and two walks while striking out three.

Competitive Edge Analysis

"I felt really good out there," Eovaldi said. "I felt I got hit around when I was ahead in the counts tonight, but overall I'm really pleased with the outing. I thought our guys did a great job offensively and on defense." Eovaldi sounds unusually encouraged despite failing to notch a quality start for the fourth time this season while seeing his ERA rise to 4.85. Maybe it's because he's fallen victim to some bad luck with a .332 BABIP, or because his 8.44 K/9 is a career best. Whatever the case, Eovaldi will look to build off this one when he takes the hill next against the Diamonds in Arizona on Tuesday.

Eovaldi (2-2) gave up six hits and two earned runs over eight innings in Saturday's 8-2 victory over the Red Sox. He struck out six.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After getting knocked around for 10 hits and six earned runs by the Red Sox last Sunday, Eovaldi managed to bounce back with one of his best outings of the season. It was the hard-throwing righty's longest stint on the mound in 2016, and his 107 pitches were the most he's thrown on the season as well. The performance was an encouraging development for the 26-year-old, who had progressively improved with each start this season before the aforementioned meltdown against Boston. He'll try to keep the momentum going against the Royals and Ian Kennedy next Thursday.

Eovaldi was hit hard by the Red Sox on Sunday, allowing six runs on 10 hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out three and did not factor into the decision.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Eovaldi tossed seven shutout innings in his previous start, but he was hit early and often Sunday en route to allowing his most earned runs of the young season. His ERA now sits at 5.46 and he has allowed at least three runs in four of five starts this season, making him less than attractive from a fantasy perspective against the same Boston lineup Saturday in New York.

Eovaldi (1-2) earned his first win behind seven shutout innings Monday against the Rangers. He allowed just two hits and two walks and struck out six batters.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Eovaldi finally kept the ball in the yard after allowing four home runs in his first three starts. The rest of Eovaldi's game has been just fine -- an 11.2 K/9, 1.5 BB/9, and a 43.1 percent ground ball rate usually mean good things for a starting pitcher. Things finally came together for Eovaldi on Monday. But it is worth noting that Eovaldi has underperformed his peripheral numbers for most of his career -- he owns a 4.16 ERA against a 3.64 FIP for his career, and last year he finished with a 4.20 ERA despite a 3.42 FIP. He'll have to have more than one start like Monday's before prospective owners are convinced he has resolved his issues.

Eovaldi (0-2) struck out seven, but allowed three earned runs in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Oakland.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 26-year-old went 14-3 during his first season in pinstripes a year ago, but hasn't been able to get going yet in 2016. Despite being winless, he's helped fantasy owners with an excellent 22:3 K:BB. However, owners will certainly want his 6.11 ERA to start coming down quickly. Eovaldi has pitched with good stuff for the most part this season, he just hasn't received much run support from a struggling New York lineup.

Eovaldi (0-1) racked up eight strikeouts Thursday, but gave up four runs on seven hits and a pair of walks over 6.2 innings in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Competitive Edge Analysis

While it's nice to see Eovaldi missing bats in his first two starts -- a common criticism of his package as a pitcher -- the righty's also given up four homers and nine earned runs in 11.2 innings this year. That said, he's faced a pair of power-laden teams in the Jays and Astros; a friendlier matchup against Oakland his next time out should help Eovaldi get started on leveling out that ugly 6.94 ERA.

Eovaldi gave up five runs on six hits while striking out seven batters through five innings against the Astros on Thursday. He didn't receive a decision in the eventual win.

Competitive Edge Analysis

That 7:0 K:BB looks nice, but even without walking a batter, Eovaldi managed to throw 94 pitches in five innings. Much of the damage came on a pair of homers, a relative rarity for the righty -- he allowed just 10 in 154.1 innings last year despite how friendly Yankee Stadium is for lefty power hitters. Eovaldi throws hard, but has never been able to put together that fantasy-friendly combo of strikeouts and run prevention. At 26, he still has room to take a step forward, but his development does seem to have stalled. Eovaldi's got a tough matchup against the high-powered Jays next Wednesday.
