Yankees' Nathan Eovaldi tosses scoreless outing Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/29/15) Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi allowed just three hits in 4 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out five and walking none in his team's 7-0 win over the Astros Sunday.
Eovaldi gave up a run in his spring debut but has strung together three straight scoreless outings to head into the spring's final week with a 0.66 ERA in 13 2/3 innings. He's also racked up 14 strikeouts without walking a batter.
"All of my pitches are working really well right now. I’ve just got to work on rushing to the plate," Eovaldi said to ESPNNewYork.com.
"I worked a lot of 3-2 counts. It was just tough for me to put them away," he said. "I felt like they were fouling off every pitch. I felt like I’d get ahead 1-2, 0-2 and then they’d work the count 3-2. It’s important to me to be able to put them away with one or two pitches."
Yankees tab Masahiro Tanaka for Opening Day start
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced Friday starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka will start Opening Day (April 6) against the Blue Jays. It will be his first Opening Day start.
Girardi added Tanaka will be followed in the rotation by Michael Pineda, CC Sabathia and Nathan Eovaldi. Sabathia has started the last six openers for New York.
“We feel that’s the way it works the best. We feel that gives everybody a chance to be pretty ready,” Girardi said, per the New York Post. “Tanaka will be on a little bit of a pitch count the first time. We just like the way it works for our guys.”
The Yankees have not yet officially announced a fifth starter, but general manager Brian Cashman indicated earlier this week Adam Warren is the favorite to land the final spot in the rotation.
Tanaka and Sabathia were considered the top two candidates to start Opening Day. However, Girardi held off in making the decision as he wanted to see how both pitchers responded this spring coming off injury-plagued campaigns in 2014. While Sabathia is coming off knee surgery, Tanaka did not undergo surgery last season for a partially torn UCL. Although, he did miss a few months due to the elbow injury.
Tanaka is 1-1 with a 1.74 ERA in three spring starts. He also has 12 strikeouts to just one walk in 10 1/3 innings.
Yankees' Nathan Eovaldi goes 4 2/3 innings vs. minor leaguers
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi continued a strong spring with a 75-pitch outing against Blue Jays minor leaguers on Tuesday. He struck out five and allowed only one run over 4 2/3 innings of work. Pitching coach Larry Rothschild was present for Eovaldi's outing, per NJ.com.
"He's a guy that has a chance to get better and better as long as he's heading in the right direction," Rothschild said. "And that's what he's doing."
Yankees' Nathan Eovaldi continues to impress throughout spring
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/15/15) Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi threw four innings Sunday, recording three strikeouts and surrendering just two hits. Manager Joe Girardi couldn't ask for anything else from the right-hander, reports MLB.com.
"You can't expect much more," Girardi said. "We're really excited to have him in camp with us as one of our starters. We think he can do a really good job for us."
Eovaldi, who threw 30 strikes in 45 pitches, continues to strive for more.
"I take pride in trying to get better. You don't want to stay the same," Eovaldi said. "Being able to elevate the ball is one thing I struggled with last year. I'd throw it way too high. I'm able to get the ball up in the zone and then also keep it down, and then the offspeed pitches are there, too."
Yankees' Pineda, Eovaldi combine for five scoreless innings
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/9/15) Yankees starting pitchers Michael Pineda and Nathan Eovaldi combined for five scoreless innings during Monday's spring game against the Rays.
Pineda, who was making his spring debut, opened the game with two scoreless innings. He allowed one hit and racked up two strikeouts.
"I like the command and my offspeed pitches," said Pineda, who threw 17 of 25 pitches for strikes, per MLB.com. "My changeup and my slider are very good today. I'm excited because the command is there and everything is good."
Eovaldi, who was making his second spring outing, pitched three innings in relief. He allowed three hits, but he also recorded five strikeouts. Eovaldi lowered his ERA from 4.50 to 1.80.
"I felt like I did pretty good," Eovaldi said. "I ran into some trouble in the second inning, but I was able to get out of a jam. I felt good for the most part. It felt like I was rushing a little bit on some of my offspeed pitches, but other than that, I felt pretty good."
|2014 Summary: No National League pitcher pounded the strike zone as often as Nathan Eovaldi did in 2014, and that wasn't necessarily a good development for the Marlins' righty. Eovaldi allowed contact at a high rate and paid for it dearly, as opponents batted .282 against him. That's how, despite a 1.9 BB/9 ratio, Eovaldi got saddled with a 1.33 WHIP. Worse yet, he stranded only 67 percent of the batters he let reach base, leaving him with a 4.37 ERA. The Marlins' offense fanned the flames, offering only 3.4 runs of support per nine innings, which left Eovaldi with a 6-14 record. The 25-year-old will attempt to deliver on his considerable upside with the Yankees, to whom he was traded in December.|
Playing time status: Eovaldi led the Marlins with 199 2/3 innings in 2014, as he proved to be healthy and durable. However, he may just serve as a placeholder for Ivan Nova, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery.
2015 Outlook: Though he was generally prone to contact, Eovaldi notched 13 or more swinging strikes in six different starts. Just maybe the 25-year-old still has some strikeout potential, and a late-season increase in whiff rate on his slider and curve is an encouraging sign. A potential squeeze in the Yankees' rotation could put a damper on his value, as does his move to Yankee Stadium. The short right field porch could signal trouble, as Eovaldi allowed lefties to slug .438 against him last year. Eovaldi can go undrafted in standard mixed leagues, but he has some sleeper appeal in deeper formats.
