Nathan Eovaldi SP NYY 5 days ago

Eovaldi was tagged for five earned runs on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts over 4.1 innings Tuesday against the Nationals.

He has now given up six home runs over his last five starts, as the hard-throwing righty appears to be quite hittable. Considering Eovaldi has not notched more than six strikeouts in a start since Apr. 15, there is not enough upside in the profile to continue using him in shallower formats.

Eovaldi gave up four runs on six hits and two walks with six strikeouts in 7.1 innings Tuesday against the Rays.

The fact remains that Eovaldi is plainly quite hittable. The six hits he gave up Tuesday match his low for the season, and he has already given up five home runs through seven starts. His 31 strikeouts in 41.1 innings are underwhelming so as long as hitters continue to feast on his pitches, the upside here will be limited.

Eovaldi allowed three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three in 5.2 innings in Thursday's win over the Orioles.

In his six starts with the Yankees, Eovaldi (3-0) is undefeated. He gave up solo shots to Jimmy Paredes and Caleb Joseph, but Yankee sluggers Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeiria had 2 RBI each, which was enough run support to get him the win. Eovaldi will take the mound again Tuesday at Tampa Bay.

Eovaldi picked up the win Saturday, allowing two runs on seven hits and a walk over 6.2 innings, striking out two.

While his WHIP is still an unsightly 1.55, Eovaldi's 3.81 ERA and 22:6 K:BB through five starts (28.1 innings) aren't terrible. He'll try to turn in another quality start next week at home against the Orioles.

Eovaldi allowed four runs on seven hits while striking out six in 4.1 innings of Sunday's win over the Mets.

After a strong performance his last time out in which he earned his first win as a Yankee, Eovaldi posted a similar line as his first two starts as he struggled to go deep into the game. He's only been able to provide 21.2 innings in four starts, but has had solid command as he's up to 20 strikeouts with just five walks.

Eovaldi earned his first win of the season, allowing just one run over seven innings with four strikeouts against the Tigers on Tuesday.

Eovaldi has surrendered eight hits in each of his three starts, but he was able to work deeper into the game Tuesday as the fewer strikeouts kept the pitch count down. He's been able to maintain a solid 3.12 ERA thus far and will look for his second win of the year against the Mets on Sunday.

Eovaldi struck out nine over five innings Wednesday, allowing two runs on eight hits and three walks while earning no decision in a loss to Baltimore.

At least he missed bats this time, but Eovaldi is still 0-for-2 on giving the Yankees length, as he's failed to finish six innings in either of his starts this year. Although he throws hard, Eovaldi's lack of secondary stuff makes him a highly risky fantasy role, and he may ultimately be better suited to the back end of the bullpen.

Eovaldi allowed three runs on eight hits with a walk and a strikeout in 5.1 innings of Friday's loss to the Red Sox.

Eovaldi had his moments in this one, hitting 101 mph in the first inning, but also had trouble with his control at points with two wild pitches and a hit batsman. He was spared the loss thanks to Chase Headley's two-out ninth inning home run, and figures to get his next start Wednesday against the Orioles.

Eovaldi pitched three scoreless innings, striking out five, in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays.

Eovaldi, who was traded to the Yankees in December, is in line to slot in at the back end of the rotation at least until Ivan Nova returns from as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. The 25-year-old has looked impressive in two spring league appearances, with a 1.80 ERA without issuing a walk. If he gets off to a strong start this season, Eovaldi should be able to hold onto his rotation spot even after Nova comes back.

Eovaldi agreed to a one-year, $3.3 million contract with the Yankees on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

The hard-throwing right-hander gave up 223 hits last season, most in the NL, and finished with a rather unsightly 4.37 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 199.2 innings. However, his FIP was 100 points lower than his ERA and he improved his swinging-strike rate to 8.4%. Moreover, Eovaldi has a below-average 32.9% flyball rate for his career, so there's reason for optimism heading into his first season with the Yankees.
