Eovaldi (5-5) gave up four runs on 10 hits and one walk while striking out two in 5.1 innings Tuesday against the Indians. He took the loss.
His first two starts with Boston were excellent, but Eovaldi has now given up 27 hits and three walks while allowing nine earned runs in 13 innings over his last three outings. He has also only struck out seven over that span. If the Red Sox allow Eovaldi to stick in the rotation, he could still be useful as a spot starter for those chasing wins, given his team context. But there is significant risk in blindly leaving him in lineups going forward. With the Red Sox shorthanded in the rotation for at least the next 7-to-10 days, Eovaldi will likely stick in the rotation to start Sunday in Tampa Bay, but if he struggles again, he could get bounced when Eduardo Rodriguez (ankle) and Chris Sale (shoulder) return.
Chapman was forced from Tuesday's game against the Marlins with left knee discomfort, Coley Harvey of ESPN.com reports.
It's the same knee and same area as the tendinitis that has bothered Chapman throughout the season, which is now a huge concern for the Yankees. The veteran left-hander will undergo an MRI to help determine the severity of the issue, which last flared up in early July.
Coach Frank Reich said Castonzo (hamstring) won't play the final two preseason games but is hopeful to play the season opener against the Bengals, Zak Keefer of the Indianapolis Star reports. "I don't want to say we're getting close, but it's fair to say we're making progress. I'm confident," Reich said. "I would hope to be able to get him some practice time before we get into Week 1."
Chapman exited Tuesday's game against the Marlins with an apparent injury, Marc Carig of The Athletic New York reports.
Chapman threw six pitches -- and only one strike -- as he entered to secure the save during the 12th inning. The specifics of the injury are not yet known.
Suzuki exited Tuesday's win over the Pirates with a left elbow injury and is undergoing additional testing.
Suzuki was hit by a pitch during the ninth inning and appeared to be in significant pain as he left the game. The veteran catcher underwent X-rays -- although the results have not been announced -- and is set to undergo a CT scan Wednesday. Tyler Flowers will start at catcher for the Braves while Suzuki is sidelined.
