Eovaldi will start Sunday against the Orioles if he doesn't pitch during Friday's contest, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Manager Alex Cora made a similar statement about Eovaldi working as an opener last week, but he ended up being needed to escape a late-inning jam the night before his starting assignment. The 29-year-old isn't fully stretched out as a starter since he's been working out of the bullpen, but he could apparently still be available for around 60 pitches.
