  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Strikes out six in no decision

    Eovaldi gave up three runs on six hits across 6.1 innings during Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Atlanta. He struck out six and walked one.

    Eovaldi cruised through the first two innings but got into trouble in the third when Orlando Arcia singled to center. Travis Demeritte followed the single with a two-run shot, and two batters later Matt Olson hit an RBI double to center, tying the game 3-3. Eovaldi was able to settle down after the shaky third, but he was pulled in the seventh inning with 98 pitches after giving up another single to Arica. The veteran righty sports a 3.15 ERA and 42:7 K:BB across 40.0 innings, but he's allowed at least one home run in all but one start this season, including multiple homers three times.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Middling performance Friday

    Eovaldi (1-1) gave up three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four over five innings Friday against the White Sox. He took the loss.

    Jose Abreu had a sacrifice fly in the top of the third inning and Luis Robert hit a towering two-run homer in the third, which accounted for all the damage on Eovaldi. He has already given up eight home runs in 33.2 innings this season, which is the one big knock on Eovaldi's otherwise stellar season. Tentatively, he lines up to start next weekend in Texas.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Shines with seven scoreless frames

    Eovaldi did not factor in the decision against Baltimore on Saturday despite tossing seven scoreless innings during which he allowed three hits and no walks while striking out eight.

    Eovaldi held the Orioles without a hit for 5.2 frames and left with a 1-0 lead after seven standout innings, but the Boston offense generated only one run and its bullpen couldn't hold the lead for the right-hander. Still, this was another impressive performance for Eovaldi, who racked up 16 swinging strikes and notched his second consecutive quality start. He'll carry a 2.51 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 32:3 K:BB into his next outing, which is scheduled to come at home against the White Sox on Friday.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Settles for no-decision Monday

    Eovaldi didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Blue Jays, allowing two runs on five hits over seven innings. He struck out five without walking a batter.

    The right-hander tossed an efficient 72 pitches (56 strikes) before exiting, but Eovaldi served up solo homers to Lourdes Gurriel and Matt Chapman and was headed for his first loss of the season until the Red Sox tied it up in the eighth inning. Eovaldi will carry a 3.32 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and sharp 24:3 K:BB through 21.2 innings into his next outing, but he's already given up seven long balls on the season.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Pulled in fifth inning

    Eovaldi surrendered one run on seven hits and one walk while striking out six over 4.2 innings in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays. He did not factor into the decision.

    Eovaldi struggled to keep the Blue Jays off the bases in this one, allowing eight batters to reach before being yanked with two outs in the fifth inning. Ultimately, he was able to tightrope out of a lot of trouble, surrendering just one run on a Zack Collins solo homer in the top of the second frame, the fifth long ball he's allowed in three starts. Thankfully, only one of those blasts came with runners on base. All together, Eovaldi has produced a 3.78 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over three starts this season. He's still looking for his first win of the 2022 campaign.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Earns first win

    Eovaldi (1-0) allowed two earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out six across five innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Tigers.

    Eovaldi surrendered a pair of solo home runs -- one in the opening inning and the other in the fifth -- but otherwise limited the Detroit offense. The Tigers did make him work, however, as they fouled off 32 of Eovaldi's offerings and ran his pitch count to 101 across five frames of work. Eovaldi has worked five innings in each of his first two starts and posted a 13:2 K:BB in that span, though he's also surrendered four long balls.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Whiffs seven in season opener

    Eovaldi allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven in five innings during Friday's loss to the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Boston's offense provided Eovaldi with a three-run lead in the top of the first inning Friday, but he gave up a two-run blast in the bottom half of the frame before Giancarlo Stanton tied the game with a solo homer in the bottom of the fourth. Although the right-hander was forced to settle for a no-decision, he had strong strikeout numbers while reaching 76 pitches in the Red Sox opener. Eovaldi tentatively lines up to start Wednesday's road matchup against the Tigers.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Red Sox-Yankees opener postponed

    Eovaldi and the Red Sox won't face the Yankees on Thursday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The season opener will be postponed to Friday, which was initially an open date for both teams. The Red Sox still plan to hand Eovaldi the Opening Day nod and keep the rest of their rotation in order.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Starting Opening Day

    Eovaldi was announced as the Red Sox' Opening Day starter for the April 7 game against the Yankees.

    Chris Sale (ribs) is unavailable to begin the season, so it's no surprise Eovaldi will take the mound Opening Day for Boston. The right-hander had a 3.75 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 195:35 K:BB across 182.1 innings last season, which was only the second time in his MLB career he's topped 160 innings.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Up to four innings

    Eovaldi did not allow hit or walk while striking out six over four scoreless innings in Wednesday's spring training game against Minnesota.

    Eovaldi increased his innings count in what was a dominant Grapefruit League performance against several Twins regulars. He was also dominant for two innings of his first spring start before tiring in the third. There's time remaining for two more Grapefruit League starts, so Eovaldi should be ready for five or six innings on Opening Day. Across seven spring innings, the right-hander has allowed two runs on three hits with nine strikeouts and zero walks.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Works three innings Friday

    Eovaldi allowed two runs on three hits while striking out three and walking none over three innings in Friday's spring training game against the Rays.

    Eovaldi was dominant over the first two innings before getting fatigued in the third. There's still time left in camp for Evoladi to make three more starts before taking the ball Opening Day in Yankee Stadium on Apr. 7. However, manager Alex Cora said he was not locked into giving his starters four spring starts. "We have to be careful. We'll see how he feels after this one and then we'll reassess what we have to do," Cora said. Whether the righty makes two or three more starts, Eovaldi should be up to working about five innings by the start of the regular season.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Tapped for Friday's start

    Eovaldi will start Friday's spring training game against the Rays, Ian Browne of reports.

    Boston kicks off its Grapefruit League schedule Thursday, a traditional affair vs. the Twins, but manager Alex Cora might deploy exclusively minor leaguers for that game. Eovaldi geared up for the assignment by throwing live batting practice Tuesday. The right-hander, who went 11-9 with a 3.75 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over 32 starts, is expected to be the No. 2 starter behind Chris Sale. Eovaldi will be followed in the spring rotation by Nick Pivetta, who will start Saturday against the Twins.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Named Opening Day starter

    Manager Alex Cora said Wednesday that Eovaldi will draw the Opening Day start against the Yankees on April 7, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    The Red Sox announced Wednesday that Chris Sale (ribs) will miss the start of the regular season, so Eovaldi will be tabbed for the Opening Day start at Yankee Stadium. The right-hander made 32 starts for Boston last year and posted a 3.75 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in 182.1 innings, and he's slated to make his first spring start of 2022 against the Rays on Friday.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Fans four in loss

    Eovaldi (1-2) allowed one run on five hits and a walk while striking out four in 4.1 innings to take the loss against the Astros on Friday in Game 6 of the ALCS.

    Eovaldi was relatively effective at holding the Astros in check to begin Friday's matchup, with the only run he allowed coming via a double in the bottom of the first inning. However, the Red Sox only mustered two hits during the game, forcing the right-hander to settle for the loss. The 31-year-old made five appearances (four starts) during the postseason and recorded a 4.79 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 20.2 innings.

  • Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Still available for Game 6

    Manager Alex Cora said Wednesday that Eovaldi is still available to pitch in Game 6 of the ALCS against the Astros on Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Eovaldi threw 24 pitches as a reliever in Tuesday's Game 4 loss. However, he tentatively lines up to make his fourth postseason start on the road in Game 6 on Friday and seems to have a good chance to take the mound to begin the game.
