Eovaldi won his ninth game of the season Sunday against the Red Sox, allowing three runs in five innings while striking out four.

The 25-year-old ran into trouble in the third inning when he put men on base and allowed three straight run-scoring hits, but he was able to minimize the damage and lasted long enough to earn the victory. Eovaldi continues to get results despite his 4.50 ERA and will make his next start following the All-Star break, although a date has not been determined.

Eovaldi was effective on Tuesday night agaisnt the A's, allowing two runs over 5.1 innings.

Eovaldi left with a 3-2 lead, but only went 86 pitches and the Yankees bullpen was unable to hold the lead. Eovaldi has struggled with batters reaching base throughout the first half and his WHIP now stands at an ugly 1.53. He will next take the hill on Sunday in Fenway Park.

Eovaldi (8-2) pitched 5.1 shutout innings Wednesday in Anaheim, striking out three while allowing five hits and three walks.

This wasn't necessarily the most efficient outing for Eovaldi, as fantasy owners would surely like him to whiff more hitters with his high-velocity fastball, but he generated 11 outs on the ground versus just one through the air en route to his third consecutive win. With the league still holding a .352 BABIP against him, Eovaldi has some room for his numbers to normalize a bit more, but unless he can find a new swing-and-miss pitch, his upside remains modest.

Eovaldi improved to 7-2, allowing two runs with six strikeouts over six innings in Friday's win over the Astros.

Eovaldi still has an inflated ERA (4.81) from his disastrous return to Miami -- allowing eight runs in 0.2 innings -- but he's now turned in a pair of impressive outings since then. The 25-year-old is currently maintaining a personal-best 6.6 K/9, and a 3.79 FIP suggests room for improvement.

Eovaldi (6-2) beat the Tigers on Saturday, allowing two runs on just three hits and one walk over six innings. He struck out four.

Eovaldi was pushed up to start on just three days' rest after throwing just 36 pitches in Tuesday's eight-run disaster in Miami, and he responded with one of his better outings of the year. All in all, he's been a tough start in fantasy with that 4.95 ERA and 1.57 WHIP for the season, but the Yankees have provided him plenty of run support; as a result, he's already matched his career high in wins. Eovaldi will next face the Astros on Thursday.

Eovaldi will have his next start pushed forward to Saturday against the Tigers on just three day's rest, The Westchester Journal News reports.

The Yankees have been playing it cautiously with Masahiro Tanaka all season, so they'll turn to Eovaldi after he tossed just 36 pitches in his last start to give Tanaka an extra day of rest. Eovaldi was crushed last time out, allowing eight runs while failing to get out of the first inning, but he'll look to turn it around against the Tigers.

Eovaldi fell to 5-2 after he got rocked by the Marlins on Tuesday, as he served up eight runs on nine hits and recorded only two outs.

As with most disaster innings, there was some poor luck, as the Marlins knocked out two infield singles in the inning, but Miami got him for a couple of extra-base hits before the first inning was over and after 10 batters, he was yanked. Eovaldi's ERA jumped by just under a full run from 4.13 to 5.12.

Eovaldi turned in seven effective innings Wednesday against the Nationals, allowing three runs on eight hits and a walk. He struck out four and didn't factor into the decision.

Once in a while, Eovaldi turns in a credible start like this one, but his lack of secondary pitches and general inconsistency have made the hard-throwing righty tough to trust for fantasy purposes. Peculiarly, he's never won any of his 12 interleague starts, but he'll get another chance his next time out -- Eovaldi will face his old Marlins mates Tuesday.

Eovaldi allowed one run on four hits, walking four and striking out four over 5.1 innings of an 8-7 win over the Angels on Friday night.

Eovaldi (5-1, 4.16 ERA) continues to struggle with his command - he needed 93 pitches, just 53 for strikes to generate 16 outs. Thankfully for he and his fantasy owners, the Yankees built a big lead, and he lasted long enough to qualify for his fifth win. There is no question Eovaldi has a premier fastball that sits in the upper 90s, but his lack of command of the strikezone too often leads to high pitch counts and short outings. Until he can snap a leash on his pitches, his fantasy value will be limited.
