Eovaldi (elbow) reported no setbacks a day after playing catch for the first time following Tommy John surgery, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 27-year-old righty, who is expected to miss the entire 2017 campaign, took a small but important step in the long road to recovery with the initial throwing session. The Rays plan to keep him on a schedule of every-other-day catch regimen for the time being.

Eovaldi was released by the Yankees on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Eovaldi was serviceable during his two-year stint as a member of the Yankees rotation, but after undergoing Tommy John surgery in August (and effectively ending his chances of pitching in 2017), the Yankees saw no reason to keep him around. The 26-year-old could be an enticing option for teams looking for an inexpensive and young pitcher if they're willing to wait a year for his services, though.

Eovaldi was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Eovaldi was the victim of a need for 40-man roster spots in advance of the deadline for Rule 5 draft protection, though he was also reported to be non-tendered a week ago. Currently recovering from Tommy John surgery, he could be a lottery ticket enticed by his velocity and willing to wait as he rehabs.

Eovaldi (elbow) will be non-tendered by the Yankees, the New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

General manager Brian Cashman broke the news, although it was really just a formality with Eovaldi set to miss all of next season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in August. Eovaldi earned $5.6 million this season in his second year of arbitration eligibility. Another team may be interested in bringing Eovaldi aboard on a low-cost, two-year deal with hopes of reaping the benefits in 2018.

Eovaldi (elbow) was moved to the 60-day disabled list, Chad Jennings of the Lohud Yankees Blog reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eovaldi underwent Tommy John surgery at the latter end of August and isn't expected to return until the 2018 campaign, so moving him to the 60-day DL comes as no surprise. In a corresponding move, Billy Butler was added to the club's roster.

Eovaldi underwent successful Tommy John surgery Friday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. He also underwent a procedure to repair the flexor tendon in his right hand.

EDGE Analysis

Eovaldi did not encounter any unexpected issues while undergoing the knife, but he faces a lengthy recovery timetable from what was Tommy John surgery number two for him. Eovaldi has already been ruled out for the entire 2017 season, so he will have an eye on getting healthy in time for spring training in 2018.

Eovaldi (elbow) is dealing with a partially torn UCL and a completely torn flexor tendon in his pitching arm, Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal reports. He will undergo surgery to repair both injuries.

EDGE Analysis

There was concern about Eovaldi's health as of Friday when he was sent in for an MRI that revealed an injury severe enough to land the flame thrower on the DL. Tuesday's official diagnosis confirms that Eovaldi is dealing with a significant injuries to multiple ligaments and tendons. According to ESPN's Wallace Matthews, Eovaldi will miss all of the 2017 season.

The Yankees have placed Eovaldi (elbow) on the 15-day DL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Eovaldi underwent an MRI on Thursday and was diagnosed with a right elbow tendon injury. The Yankees will be very cautious with Eovaldi the rest of the season as they are well out of the playoff race in the American League. A timetable of the injury is unclear at this time, but expect Eovaldi to miss more than the 15-day designation.

Eovaldi (elbow) underwent a dye contrast MRI on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The Yankees will await the results of the MRI and have Eovaldi under further evaluation and consultation in the coming days before updating his status any further. At this point, it seems safe to assume Eovaldi will miss at least one start after making it just 12 pitches into Wednesday's outing. The team may not have much of a choice but to bring Luis Severino back from Triple-A for a start early next week.
