    • Rays' Nathan Eovaldi: Has option picked up
      By RotoWire Staff

      Eovaldi (elbow) will have his $2 million 2018 club option exercised, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Eovaldi missed all of 2017 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but the Rays felt he was worth bringing back in 2018 given the small amount of money he's owed. The 27-year-old -- who was reinstated from the 60-day DL on Thursday, per Topkin -- is expected to be fully healthy heading into spring training, where he'll compete for a rotation spot. When he last pitched in 2016, Eovaldi posted a 4.76 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 124.2 innings before undergoing Tommy John surgery in August.

    • Eovaldi (elbow) has completed his rehab and is projected to compete for a rotation spot in spring training, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Bay Times reports. In the words of manager Kevin Cash, Eovaldi has "put a check next to every box" in his rehab process, which has essentially gone off without a hitch following his August 2016 Tommy John surgery. The 27-year-old right-hander had ideally wanted to take the mound before the end of the regular season, but the Rays want him to head into the offseason without taxing his arm further and then compete for a rotation spot next spring.

    • Eovaldi (elbow) fired a scoreless inning for Triple-A Durham in Game 2 of the International League championship series Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. As per Topkin, Eovaldi threw a total of 17 pitches over his one frame, allowing two hits in the process. A decision on whether Eovaldi will take a major-league mound this season is likely imminent, but even if that's postponed until 2018, the right-hander has undeniably made an impressive recovery from August 2016 Tommy John surgery.

    • Rays' Nathan Eovaldi: Heading to Triple-A Durham
      By RotoWire Staff

      Eovaldi (elbow) will make his second rehab appearance for Triple-A Durham on Wednesday in Game 2 of the International League championship series, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Eovaldi fired a scoreless inning in which he recorded two strikeouts in his first rehab appearance last Saturday for High-A Charlotte. The 27-year-old right-hander started that contest, but Wednesday's appearance is scheduled to come in relief. The Rays will soon make a decision whether Eovaldi will return to big-league game action this season, or whether they'll hold him out until spring training 2018.
