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.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Struggles in first start since May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed five runs on three hits with three walks and one strikeout across two innings during a no-decision against the Orioles on Sunday.

The Red Sox were planning to limit Eovaldi to 60 pitches, but he struggled to get through two frames while throwing only 43 pitches. Eovaldi has pitched well out of the bullpen lately, but he owns a 7.43 ERA in five starts this season. Overall, Eovaldi is 1-0 with a 6.82 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 34.1 innings during 2019. Boston doesn't have many appealing alternatives on hand for the rotation, so Eovaldi is in line to stick in a starting role and make his next turn Saturday versus the Padres in San Diego, per Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Will have pitch limit Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi is expected to throw 60 pitches when he starts Sunday against the Orioles, Chris Cotillo of reports.

Manager Alex Cora confirmed Eolvadi will start Sunday if the Red Sox didn't need him in relief Friday -- they didn't -- so he looks like a go for Sunday. The 60-pitch limit means he's unlikely to go long enough to pitch the five innings needed to qualify for a win.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Could start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi will start Sunday against the Orioles if he doesn't pitch during Friday's contest, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Manager Alex Cora made a similar statement about Eovaldi working as an opener last week, but he ended up being needed to escape a late-inning jam the night before his starting assignment. The 29-year-old isn't fully stretched out as a starter since he's been working out of the bullpen, but he could apparently still be available for around 60 pitches.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Needed for relief Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi (1-0) picked up the win Wednesday after throwing two scoreless innings of relief against the Indians.

Eovaldi's role on the staff is fluid. Prior to Wednesday's game, manager Alex Cora mentioned Eovaldi has a possible starter this weekend, but that was before the right-hander was needed for two innings and 24 pitches Wednesday. He also pitched in Tuesday's game, so his status with respect to this weekend is unclear. With Andrew Cashner having pitched himself out of the rotation and David Price (wrist) on the injured list, there's a need for Eovaldi as a starter.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Could start over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi is a candidate to start against the Orioles over the weekend, Ian Browne of reports.

It sounds like Eovaldi could return to a starting role this weekend if he goes unused out of the bullpen in Wednesday's series finale against the Indians. The right-hander has looked better across four appearances in August (3.18 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 3:3 K:BB in 5.2 innings) after initially struggling following his return from the injured list in July.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Not opening Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi won't open Wednesday's game against the Indians after appearing out of the bullpen Tuesday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Manager Alex Cora hinted prior to Tuesday's game Eovaldi was being considered to open Wednesday's contest, but he instead used the right-hander to escape from an eighth-inning jam where the tying run was on second base. The 29-year-old has mostly struggled in relief to this point, but he nonetheless came through in a high-leverage spot for the Red Sox. Brian Johnson will start Wednesday's series finale.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Could open Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Alex Cora stated Tuesday that "there's a good chance" Eovaldi will open Wednesday's game against the Indians, Tom Caron of NESN reports.

Eovaldi was expected to slot in as the team's primary closer after returning from injury, but he's struggled out of the bullpen since being activated from the injured list. Cora has been using in Eovaldi in low-leverage situations of late, but it appears that the right-hander will be given an opportunity to slot in as Boston's opener Wednesday. He'll likely have a chance to work deeper into the ballgame than a traditional opener, as he's slated to fire around 55 pitches. According to Chris Cotillo of, Eovaldi will be used as a starter for the rest of the season in an effort to build his pitch count back up.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Struggles in relief again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed two runs on three hits while striking out two over an inning in Saturday's 9-5 win over the Yankees.

It's a good thing manager Alex Cora is letting Eovaldi pitch in low-leverage situations before entrusting him to be the primary closer. This was the second time in three tries that Eovaldi has been hit hard. His ERA is 16.88 after his first three relief outings.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Makes first appearance after IL stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi allowed five hits and three runs while striking out two over two-thirds of an inning in Monday's 9-4 win over the Rays.

This was Eovaldi's first appearance since coming off the injured list, and it was designed to be a soft landing after he missed three months with an elbow injury. Unfortunately, he showed up rusty and couldn't get out of the eighth inning. The silver lining is that just one of the five hits had an exit velocity over 93.8 mph, per Christopher Smith of

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Back from 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox activated Eovaldi (elbow) from the 60-day injured list ahead of Saturday's game against the Orioles.

Eovaldi, whose last appearance for Boston came back on April 17, will rejoin the Red Sox in a different role, transitioning from starting to relief duty. Reports earlier this month suggested Eovaldi would be deployed as Boston's closer upon his reinstatement from the IL, but manager Alex Cora's recent comments suggest that Brandon Workman will in fact represent the Red Sox's top option for saves for the time being. Eovaldi should still be in store for a high-leverage role as he returns to the active roster on the heels of a successful rehab stint with Triple-A Pawtucket. During his lone appearance in the minors, Eovaldi struck out three of the four hitters he faced and sported a fastball that peaked around 98 miles per hour.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Won't walk right into closer job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi (elbow) won't necessarily be handed the closer role immediately upon being activated from the 60-day injured list Saturday, contrary to previous reports, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Reports from early July suggested that Eovaldi would be the Red Sox's closer once healthy, but those reports may have been premature. Manager Alex Cora has no plans to name a closer but acknowledged that Brandon Workman effectively has the role for now. Eovaldi could still win the job at some point, but don't expect him to be handed the majority of save chances right away.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Set to return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi (elbow) is expected to be activated off the 60-day injured list Saturday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

Eovaldi has been out since undergoing elbow surgery in mid-April. He's made just a single rehab appearance but the Red Sox have nevertheless decided he's ready to go. He's expected to be Boston's closer once active.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Solid in first rehab outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eovaldi (elbow) issued one walk and struck out three batters across a scoreless inning for Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday.

Eovaldi looked sharp in what was his first game action since mid-April, firing 11 of his 19 pitches for strikes and touching 98 mph with his fastball, per Kevin McNamara of the Providence Journal. If the right-hander checks out OK in the coming days, he could be activated from the injured list during the team's upcoming series in Baltimore, which begins Friday. Eovaldi is expected to serve as Boston's closer once healthy.
