Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Fans 10 in no decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed three earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out 10 across six innings Sunday against the Blue Jays. He did not factor into the decision.

Eovaldi racked up strikeouts on the strength of 19 swinging strikes on 91 total pitches. He did allow two solo home runs -- one to Bo Bichette and the other to Cavan Biggio -- to account for the majority of the damage against him. Still, it was a relatively strong outing for Eovaldi, who now has an impressive 24:3 K:BB to go along with a 4.09 ERA and 1.27 WHIP across 22 innings. He's currently projected to make his next start Friday at the Yankees.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Falls apart late
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi (1-1) allowed four earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out six across five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Rays.

Eovaldi shut the Rays down through 3.2 innings, but allowed a walk, single, and double consecutively to account for two runs in the fourth frame. He then allowed the first three batters he faced to reach base in the fifth inning -- including a triple to Austin Meadows -- accounting for the final two runs he surrendered. More positively, Eovaldi did rack up strikeouts on the strength of 12 swinging strikes on 85 total pitches. Through three starts, Eovaldi has managed a 3.94 ERA with a 14:3 K:BB across 16 innings. He's scheduled to take the mound next Monday in a rematch against the Rays.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Holds up against deGrom
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovladi picked up a no-decision Wednesday, allowing two runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings in a 6-5 win over the Mets.

Eovaldi put the Red Sox in a position to halt their four-game losing skid against Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom. Eovaldi is bearing the mantle of Boston's No. 1 starter well through the first two starts, posting a 2.45 ERA and 1.36 WHIP.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Cruises against Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi (1-0) earned the win during Friday's 13-2 victory over the Orioles. He tossed six innings of one-run ball, allowing five hits and one walk while striking out four.

Eovaldi wasn't dominant by any means, but he shut down the Orioles while posting a quality start without a lot of effort. His next start is scheduled for July 29 at the Mets, where he is expected to face Jacob deGrom in a tougher matchup.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Confirmed as Opening Day starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi was named the Red Sox's Opening Day starter Saturday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

Eovaldi will be handed the relatively easy task of shutting down the Orioles' lineup next Friday and will line up to face the Mets in his next outing. He wouldn't have gotten the Opening Day nod in a typical season, but with Chris Sale recovering from Tommy John surgery and Eduardo Rodriguez only just reporting to camp Saturday after clearing COVID-19 protocols, he's the team's best available option. Eovaldi has been capable of ace-like stretches at times in his career, though his career 4.30 ERA over eight MLB seasons certainly doesn't meet that mark, and his 5.99 ERA in 67.2 innings last year was quite poor.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Scheduled for six innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi is scheduled for a six-inning stint in a scrimmage Sunday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

While manager Ron Roenicke hasn't announced Eovaldi as Boston's Opening Day starter, it's easy to see the right-hander is lining up to start the opener Friday, July 24, when the Red Sox and Orioles kick off the regular season. "I haven't said anything to him yet," Roenicke said. "That conversation will probably happen in the next day or two. But you guys can figure out the numbers there." If all starters were healthy, left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez would start the opener, but he's still under the COVID-19 protocol and time is running out for him to be ready by then.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Throws four more innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi threw 66 pitches over four innings in his latest simulated game Tuesday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander threw 44 of his 66 pitches for strikes. Four innings is the same amount he threw in his prior outing, though he may have thrown more inside (out of the view of reporters) Tuesday after his outdoor work was cut short by rain. In any case, it appears as though he'll be able to handle something close to a full workload in his first start of the year, which will likely come against the Orioles on Opening Day due to the absences of Chris Sale (elbow) and Eduardo Rodriguez (illness).

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Dominant outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed one hit and one walk while striking out four over four innings in an intrasquad game Thursday,

In continuation of a dominant spring training, when Eovaldi pitched 12 scoreless Grapefruit League innings, the right-hander mastered Boston's hitters during Thursday's session and then followed up with a fifth inning in the bullpen. He used all of his pitches Thursday, including a revamped slider, a pitch he focused on during the shutdown. Eovaldi will be an important player for the Red Sox in what will be a thin starting rotation. With Eduardo Rodriguez (illness) not yet in camp and uncertain to report, Eovaldi is expected to be the Opening Day starter.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: May get Opening Day nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi is slated to throw his second simulated game of summer camp Thursday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Based on the tentative throwing schedule for the Red Sox's prospective rotation candidates, Eovaldi would currently be lined up for the Opening Day nod. Coming off an injury-plagued season in which he posted a 5.99 ERA and 1.58 WHIP over 67.2 innings, Eovaldi doesn't profile as an ideal No. 1 starter entering the 60-game season, but the Red Sox aren't left with many alternatives while Chris Sale (elbow) recovers from Tommy John surgery and while Eduardo Rodriguez (not injury related) remains away from summer camp. Rodriguez is currently awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test and could be in danger of missing the start of the season if a positive result were to come up.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Impresses in sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi threw three innings in a simulated game Saturday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Eovaldi threw approximately 45 pitches during his first throwing session of summer camp. "The stuff was great," said Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke. "The cutter was good, the slider, the curveball. Threw some really good split-fingers and the velocity was there on his fastball. He got what he needed to do today. Moving forward, we're thinking his next outing will be an intrasquad game." Saturday, Eovaldi built off the positive results he had during spring training, when the right-hander tossed eight scoreless innings while striking out 12 and walking one over three Grapefruit League starts. With Eduardo Rodriguez (not injury related) not yet in camp due to possible exposure to someone who tested positive for coronavirus, Eovaldi temporarily moves up a slot in the rotation.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Scoreless spring continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed one hit and one walk while striking out four over three scoreless innings in Saturday's spring start against the Blue Jays.

Eovaldi came out firing, hitting 97 mph during the first inning. He navigated traffic in the first before setting down the final seven batters faced. He's looked great thus far, tossing zeros and fanning 41.4 percent of batters faced through eight Grapefruit League innings.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Dealing in second spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed one hit and struck out four over three scoreless innings in Sunday's spring game against the Braves.

For the second straight start, Eovaldi was pinpoint with his command. He's allowed three hits and no walks while striking out eight over his two spring starts (five innings). It's an encouraging sign out of the right-hander, from whom the Red Sox are expecting a bounceback year. An elbow injury limited him to 67.2 innings in 2019. They envision Eovaldi taking the ball every fifth day. Other than 2014 with the Marlins, when Eovaldi threw 199.2 innings, he hasn't sniffed the 200-inning mark, so expectations are high.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Makes strong spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed two hits and struck out four in two innings in Monday's spring game against the Twins.

Eovaldi cited the return of his splitter as the catalyst for his strong spring debut. "Yeah, I'd say my splitter for sure," Eovaldi told Ian Browne of MLB.com. "Last year it was real inconsistent. That was one of the pitches I really focused on this offseason. Make sure I got that back on track. Today they were really consistent." After an inconsistent 2019 season, during which he served some time as a reliever, Eovladi will resume his role as a full-time starter in 2020. With David Price off to Los Angeles, the Red Sox need the 2018 version of Eovaldi, a starter who helped them win the World Series.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Saddled with first loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi (2-1) took the loss after yielding three runs on three hits and four walks while striking out three over five innings Friday night against the Orioles.

Eovaldi gave up all three runs in the third inning on a three-run blast to left field, and the Orioles would go on to win 4-1. The 29-year-old's season is likely over with just two games remaining in the regular season, and he'll finish with a 5.99 ERA and 1.58 WHIP with 70 strikeouts across 67.2 frames.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Strikes out six in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi (2-0) gave up three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six through six innings to earn the win over the Rays on Sunday.

Eovaldi allowed one run in the each of the first three innings before firing three scoreless frames to earn the win. This was easily the 29-year-old's best start since April in just the second quality start of the year. Eovaldi has a 6.03 ERA and 67 strikeouts through 11 starts this season. Eovaldi is scheduled to make his next start Friday against the Orioles at Fenway Park.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Hit hard by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed five earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out six across four innings Tuesday against the Giants. He did not factor into the decision.

Eovaldi surrendered two solo home runs and was sunk by a general lack of command. Notably, he walked two of the first three batters he faced to begin the third frame, resulting in a three-run inning. The Red Sox were trailing 4-1 when he exited the contest, but Eovaldi was bailed out by run support to avoid a losing decision. He had pitched fairly well entering Tuesday's contest, allowing only seven earned runs across his prior 16.1 frames, but Eovaldi still owns a 5.81 ERA and 1.54 WHIP across 52.2 innings for the season. He'll look to get back on track in his next start, currently scheduled for Sunday at Tampa Bay.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Takes no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed three runs on six hits with two walks and six strikeouts across 4.1 innings during a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old needed three more outs to qualify for the win, but he left in the fifth after starting the frame with a walk and a strikeout. Red Sox manager Alex Core probably regrets the decision to take him out, as the Boston bullpen gave up the lead with a homer in the next at-bat. One of those runs was charged to Eovaldi, but he didn't get saddled with the loss. Eovaldi wasn't great Tuesday, yielding two homers himself, but he's improved lately, posting a 3.38 ERA in his last three outings. He is 1-0 with a 5.81 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 55 strikeouts in 52.2 innings this season. Eovaldi is scheduled to pitch next at home against the Giants on Tuesday.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: No-decision against Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi didn't factor into the decision against the Twins on Thursday, giving up one earned run on one hit over five innings, striking out three and walking four as the Red Sox eventually fell 2-1.

Eovaldi did well to hold a powerful Twins lineup to just one run, but it wasn't enough to get him his second win of the season as he only received a single run of support from his offense. It's been a disappointing, injury-shortened campaign for the 29-year-old as he's sporting a 5.77 ERA and 1.51 WHIP across 48.1 innings, but he's been pitching better over his last two starts with just two earned runs and 11 strikeouts to his name over his last nine innings.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Whiffs eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed one run on three hits and a walk while striking out eight over four innings. He did not factor into the decision Friday versus the Angels.

Eovaldi pitched well for the second straight start, but he was long gone by the time the Red Sox secured a 7-6 win after 15 innings. He threw 81 pitches (54 strikes), working a little deeper into the game as he gradually returns to form after an elbow injury. The right-hander carries a 6.23 ERA and 1.57 WHIP over 43.1 innings this year, and he is scheduled to face the Twins on Thursday for his next start.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Quick hook in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Padres, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk over three-plus innings while striking out three.

The right-hander held San Diego scoreless through three frames but ran into trouble in the fourth, giving up a leadoff single to Manny Machado and then a two-run shot by Eric Hosmer to earn a quick hook from manager Alex Cora. Eovaldi threw 64 pitches (36 strikes) on the night, and it's not yet clear if Boston intends to fully stretch him out as a starter or limit him to only one or two times through the order. He'll take a 6.64 ERA and 38:19 K:BB through 39.1 innings into his next outing Friday, on the road against the Angels.
