Eovaldi (elbow) threw off a full mound Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday's mound session marks the first time that Eovaldi has tossed off a full mound since undergoing Tommy John surgery in August 2016. He's making steady progress and will look to enter the 2018 season at full health.

Eovaldi (elbow) threw from halfway up the mound for the first time in his rehab Friday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eovaldi will miss the entire 2017 campaign due to August 2016 Tommy John surgery, but he continues to make steady progress in his recovery. The 27-year-old will try to resuscitate his career during spring training next season assuming his rehab continues at the same pace.

Eovaldi (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The move allowed the Rays to add Jumbo Diaz to the roster. The move makes logistical sense as Eovaldi (who signed with the Rays in February) is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery and has been ruled out for the entire 2017 season.

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 agreed to a two-year deal with the Rays on Sunday, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eovaldi is slated to miss the entire 2017 season as he continues recovering from Tommy John surgery. He'll earn $2 million for the upcoming campaign, while the Rays have a club option for the 2018 season.

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.
