Loose change hurts Nate Eovaldi
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (3/31/2013) Up until Saturday morning, pitcher Nate Eovaldi was preparing to enter his first full season with the Marlins as the No. 2 starter in the team's revamped rotation. But a minor issue surrounding the right-hander's shoulder prompted further examination and an MRI exam revealed inflammation that sent him to the disabled list Sunday.
"He didn’t have any pain, he just had trouble getting loose," Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said.
Eovaldi, who was joined on the DL by rotation-mate Henderson Alvarez, is expected to resume throwing next week but could miss at least a month of playing time.
Nate Eovaldi starts season on DL
by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com (3/31/2013) With fewer than 30 hours until the start of their season, the Marlins placed starting pitcher Nate Eovaldi on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a shoulder injury. Fellow starter Henderson Alvarez was also placed on the shelf.
Miami president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest said he hopes the issues are "no more than a month thing." The team purchased the contract of Jose Fernandez from Class A Jupiter and recalled Alex Sanabia from Triple-A New Orleans to fill the spots in the rotation.
As we wait for the day Marlins super prospect Jose Fernandez is promoted to the majors, as of now the pickings are slim for Fantasy owners. Nolasco is really the only mixed-league viable starter on Draft Day. I see sleeper potential in pitchers like Eovaldi and LeBlanc, but it's still best to view everyone outside of Nolasco as NL-only Fantasy options at the outset of the season. I can see certain scenarios where some of these arms might come into play in mixed-league drafts, but they have to be pretty deep formats.

Eovaldi makes good impression
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer (2/27/2013) Right-hander Nate Eovaldi, who is competing for a spot in Marlins rotation, got off to a good start Wednesday in his spring debut at the Nationals. He pitched two hitless innings, issuing one walk and recording three strikeouts. While he didn't throw any curveballs in his 26 pitches, Eovaldi did work in a few changeup, which is something he has been working on this spring to help compliment his two best pitches -- the fastball and slider. "I need to be able to use that pitch more, slow everything down and get [the batters] out on that front foot," Eovaldi said. "I threw a few first-pitch changeups and they felt good coming out of the hand."
