Player Outlook
Nathan Eovaldi was on pace for a career year in 2023 with a 2.69 ERA and 1.01 WHIP through 19 starts, but he went down with a forearm strain in late July that sidelined him for about six weeks. He returned in September but allowed 21 runs over 20.2 frames in his final six outings of the regular season, though he got back on track in the playoffs with a 2.95 ERA to help Texas win its first World Series. The right-hander finished with a 3.63 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 132:47 K:BB over 144 innings for the campaign, which was a minor improvement on his results from the previous three seasons. Eovaldi has established himself as a solid mid-rotation pitcher over the past few years but still has durability questions, having topped 150 innings just once since 2016.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Tagged for five runs in loss

    Eovaldi (1-1) allowed five runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings to take the loss Sunday against the Astros. He struck out three. Eovaldi had allowed just three runs over 18.2 innings over his first three starts, but the Astros lit him up for five over six innings Sunday. Eovaldi allowed a leadoff homer to Jose Altuve, then allowed a second solo shot to Altuve with one out in the third. The additional three runs were scored in the fourth as Eovaldi allowed five extra-base hits among his eight hits allowed. Despite the poor effort, Eovaldi's ERA remains solid at 2.92 as he heads into his next start, tentatively slated for next weekend on the road in a showdown against Atlanta.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Strikes out eight in no-decision

    Eovaldi did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one run on three hits and two walks in 5.2 innings versus the Athletics. He struck out eight. Eovaldi had another strong performance, as a second-inning home run by Shea Langeliers was the lone blemish against him. He generated 21 whiffs while striking out eight hitters for the second straight outing. Eovaldi's been cruising with a 1.45 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 19:4 K:BB in 18.2 innings so far but lines up for a tough road matchup against the Astros next.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Goes six innings in opener

    Eovaldi didn't factor into the decision Thursday, allowing two runs on four hits over six innings versus the Cubs. He struck out three. Eovaldi was efficient Thursday, needing just 88 pitches to get through six innings, recording a quality start in the season opener. The 34-year-old right-hander went 12-5 last season with a 3.63 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 132:47 K:BB across 25 starts. The Rangers will rely on Eovaldi to anchor their rotation with Max Scherzer (back) and Jacob deGrom (elbow) both out until at least midseason. Eovaldi's tentatively lined up for a road start next week in Tampa Bay.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Works four innings Saturday

    Eovaldi allowed two hits and one walk while striking out three over four scoreless innings in Saturday's spring start against Kansas City. Eovaldi wrapped up spring with Saturday's effort and now turns his focus to Thursday's Opening Day start at home against the Cubs. He recorded a 2.63 ERA with 13 strikeouts and six walks over 13.2 spring innings (four starts).

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Picked as Opening Day starter

    Manager Bruce Bochy announced Tuesday that Eovaldi will start the Rangers' March 28 season opener versus the Cubs in Arlington. Eovaldi will be opposed by left-hander Justin Steele. Even before Bochy confirmed Eovaldi as the Opening Day starter, the 33-year-old right-hander looked like the clear choice for the defending World Series champs after going 5-0 in six postseason outings, collecting a 2.95 ERA and 41:10 K:BB over 36.2 innings along the way.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Lining up as Opening Day starter

    Eovaldi allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits and four walks while striking out five over 4.2 innings in Monday's spring start against the Angels. The results weren't pretty, but Eovaldi ramped up to an estimated 83-84 pitches in his third Cactus League start, per Sonja Chen of MLB.com. Eovaldi has allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and five walks while striking out 10 over 9.2 spring innings. He'll get two more starts in camp and is lined up to take the ball Opening Day against the Cubs.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Pleased with second spring outing

    Eovaldi allowed one run on two hits and struck out five over three innings in Thursday's spring start against the Brewers. Despite the blemish of giving up a run, Eovaldi was pleased with his second Cactus League start, per Stefan Stevenson of SI.com. "My fastball command was a lot better this time around," Eovaldi said. "I'm making the mechanical adjustments that I needed to after the [first] outing where I can just repeat my delivery a little bit better." The right-hander, projected as the team's Opening Day starter, threw all four pitches in his repertoire. Eovaldi felt so good that he threw another 12 pitches in the bullpen, upping his total pitch count for the day to 50.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Makes spring debut

    Eovaldi allowed one hit and one walk over two innings in Saturday's spring start against the Royals. Eovaldi worked around a leadoff single and two-out walk in the first inning, as the right-hander went unscathed during his Cactus League debut. His fastball sat at 96 mph and touched 97 mph, per Shawn McFarland of the Dallas Morning News.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Will start Game 1 of World Series

    Eovaldi will start Game 1 of the World Series on Friday versus the Diamondbacks, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports. He'll be facing off against Zac Gallen, who was announced as Arizona's Game 1 starter Wednesday afternoon. Eovaldi has been tremendous so far this postseason, boasting a 4-0 record, 2.42 ERA and 28:4 K:BB through four starts covering 26 innings. He's worked at least six innings each time out.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Penciled in for Game 2

    Eovaldi will start Monday against Houston in Game 2 of the ALCS, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Eovaldi has been brilliant to start the postseason, allowing just two runs while striking out 15 batters and walking none across 13.2 innings. However, Eovaldi was lit up for four runs in just 1.1 frames during his most recent matchup with Houston in early September.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Struggles in Seattle

    Eovaldi (12-5) allowed seven runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over 3.1 innings to take the loss Friday versus the Mariners. The Mariners did all their damage in the third and fourth innings, sending Eovaldi to the showers early after the back-to-back shaky frames. Over six appearances in September after returning from a forearm strain, Eovaldi allowed 21 runs across 20.1 innings with a 21:13 K:BB. He ends the regular season with a 3.63 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 132:47 K:BB over 144 innings through 25 starts. Given his recent struggles, it's unclear if he'd be part of the postseason rotation for the Rangers should they secure a playoff spot.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Picks up win despite shaky start

    Eovaldi (12-4) earned the win over the Mariners on Sunday, allowing five runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings. Eovaldi surrendered solo home runs in the second and third innings, which was just the second time in his last nine starts he's given up multiple homers in a start. He was given a chance for a quality start but allowed the first three batters to reach in the sixth and was pulled for Martin Perez, who would allow all three inherited runners to score. The five earned runs were the most given up by Eovaldi since April 12, and he hadn't given up six hits or more since June 10. He'll have a chance to redeem himself once more before the end of the regular season in a rematch against the Mariners.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Builds up to 73 pitches

    Eovaldi did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks over 3.1 innings against Toronto. He struck out three. The 33-year-old had another short outing and surrendered a two-run homer to Vladimir Guerrero in the first inning. The silver lining is that Eovaldi fired 73 pitches, his most in three starts since returning from the injured list Sept. 5, as he continues to build back up to a normal workload. In the right-hander's previous two outings, he threw 35 and 47 pitches while failing to complete three innings. While it's encouraging to see his pitch count increase, fantasy managers have to hope Eovaldi can improve upon the 7.71 ERA, 2.43 WHIP and 7:6 K:BB he has posted across just seven innings since his return. He is currently slated to make his next start early next week in a home matchup with one of his former teams, the Red Sox.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Looks better despite short outing

    Eovaldi pitched 2.1 scoreless innings in a no-decision against Oakland on Saturday, allowing three hits while issuing two walks and striking out three batters. Eovaldi struggled Tuesday in his first game back following a lengthy stay on the injured list, giving up four runs in 1.1 frames against Houston. He looked better Saturday, though he was limited to 2.1 innings and a modest 47 pitches. That was always the plan for the right-hander -- Rangers manager Bruce Bochy had indicated prior to the outing that Eovaldi was slated for 45-50 pitches due to the recency of his injury and the fact he was pitching on three days of rest. Eovaldi should work his way back up to a normal workload in time, and he is tentatively scheduled to make his next start in Toronto.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Chased after 1.1 innings

    Eovaldi (11-4) took the loss Tuesday, allowing four runs on five hits and one walk over 1.1 innings against the Astros. He struck out one. After being sidelined since mid-July with a forearm strain, Eovaldi's long-awaited return was certainly lackluster. He was pulled at 35 pitches and only managed to retire four batters, with just one coming via strikeout. Eovaldi gave up a pair of solo home runs to Jose Altuve as part of a four-run start, raising his ERA from 2.69 to 2.95 on the year. While Tuesday's struggles were uncharacteristic, Eovaldi is in line for another tough matchup next time out against the Blue Jays on the road.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Reinstated for Tuesday's start

    Eovaldi (forearm) was activated from the 15-day injured list ahead of his start against the Astros on Tuesday. The 33-year-old has been sidelined by a forearm strain since mid-July and has finally been cleared to retake the mound for the Rangers, in what will be just his second start since the All-Star break. Eovaldi is returning without going out on a minor-league rehab assignment, so he'll likely have a limited pitch count in his first couple turns through the rotation. Prior to the injury, the right-hander was in the midst of the most effective campaign of his career with a 2.69 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 111:34 K:BB over 123.2 innings.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Will start Tuesday

    Eovaldi (forearm) will be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Tuesday's game against the Astros, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports. Eovaldi has been given the green light to return from the IL to make what will be just his second appearance since the All-Star break. The right-hander had been Texas' top starter prior to suffering the right forearm strain, going 11-3 and posting a 2.61 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 111:34 K:BB across 123.2 innings. His return represents a major boon for the Rangers, who are in a tight race with Houston and Seattle for first place in the AL West. Since Eovaldi hasn't pitched for Texas in seven weeks and didn't head out on a minor-league rehab assignment, he could be on a more limited pitch count than usual in his return Tuesday.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Could return from IL on Tuesday

    Eovaldi (forearm) completed a bullpen session Sunday and could be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Tuesday's game against the Astros, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports. The Rangers have confirmed only Andrew Heaney as a starter for their crucial three-game series with Houston that begins Monday, with starters for Tuesday and Wednesday having yet to be announced. Eovaldi and Max Scherzer (forearm) seem to be tentatively penciled in for the latter two outings, however, after the two hurlers both completed side sessions Sunday. The Rangers will likely check back in with both Eovaldi and Scherzer on Monday before finalizing their plans for the final two games of the series. Assuming Eovaldi checks out fine Monday and is activated to start Tuesday, he could be on a restricted pitch count, given that he hasn't made an appearance for the Rangers since July 18 and didn't complete a minor-league rehab assignment beforehand.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Throws again Friday

    Eovaldi (forearm) threw a bullpen session Friday, Shawn McFarland of the Dallas Morning News reports. As scheduled, Eovaldi took the mound Friday for what was expected to be a heavier bullpen session following a lighter one Tuesday. The right-hander suffered a minor setback during his rehab, but the Rangers remain hopeful Eovaldi will not need a rehab start before rejoining the rotation.

  • Rangers' Nathan Eovaldi: Throws light session

    Eovaldi (forearm) threw a light bullpen session Tuesday, MLB.com reports. Eovaldi was potentially on track to return from his forearm strain when rosters expanded, but he experienced tightness in his side following a bullpen session last week, delaying his activation from the IL. Texas manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday's session went well, and Eovaldi is scheduled to throw a "much heavier" session Friday.
