Yankees starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi struggles in 4 1/3 IP Tuesday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/19/2015) Yankees starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi lasted just 4 1/3 innings on Tuesday, allowing five runs on seven hits and fanning five in a no-decision against the Nationals. 

Eovaldi surrendered first-inning homers to Ian Desmond and Bryce Harper. 

Eovaldi couldn't make it through the fifth after giving up three RBI singles to the Nats. 

"In the fifth inning, I just fell apart," Eovaldi said, per MLB.com. "Walking the leadoff batter after we put up four runs in the fourth, and two more in the fifth, it's just frustrating. I've got to be able to bear down, make better pitches than that and get back to the dugout.

Eovaldi returns to the mound for his next start Monday against the Royals.


Yankees P Nathan Eovaldi strikes out six in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi allowed four earned runs in Tuesday night's 4-2 loss to the Rays. 

Eovaldi gave up six hits, walked two batters and struck out six. The four runs allowed tied Eovaldi's season-high, which also occurred on April 26. His six strikeouts were more than the five he's recorded in the past two games combined. 

Eovaldi now has a 4.14 ERA for the season. 

His next start is projected for Sunday against the Royals. 


Yankees P Nathan Eovaldi earns third win of season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi allowed three earned runs but was still able to come away with the win in Thursday night's 4-3 victory over the Orioles. 

Eovaldi gave up a run each in the first, third and fifth innings. He lasted 5 2/3 innings before being relieved by Justin Wilson in the sixth. He struck out three batters and walked three. He allowed six hits in 102 pitches. 

Eovaldi now holds a 3.97 ERA and improved to 3-0 for the season. 

His next start is projected for May 12 against the Rays. 


Yankees starter Nathan Eovaldi has solid outing for win on Saturday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/2/2015) Yankees starter Nathan Eovaldi (2-0) allowed two runs on six hits in 6 1/3 innings on Saturday to earn the victory against the Red Sox.

"I thought he pitched in extremely well," catcher Brian McCann said. "When he pitches in, they have to cheat to that. Once they start cheating, they have to start expanding. He pitched to both sides of the plate effectively, and had them off balance. ... I think he's getting better and better, I really do."

The damage off Eovaldi came via a solo homer from Dustin Pedroia and an RBI double from Mookie Betts.

"I didn't think they were that bad today," Eovaldi said. "When we were at home with the Mets, they were a lot worse. I was like, 'Wow, we're at home!' New York-New York."

Eovaldi's next start is set for Thursday against the Orioles.


Yankees' Nathan Eovaldi can't get out of the fifth in start Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi allowed four runs on seven hits, including a home run, in New York's 6-4 win over the Mets Sunday.

Eovaldi got off to a rocky start in the first inning when he allowed a lead off home run to Curtis Granderson. Then, Eovaldi allowed an RBI double to Daniel Murphy, bringing home Juan Lagares. Eovaldi's issues continued into the third when he allowed back-to-back doubles, which brought home two more runs.

"We were scoring runs early and it's frustrating having to go to the bullpen so early, that I couldn’t go further in the game," Eovaldi said to MLB.com. "But the bullpen has been awesome."

After recording a strikeout in the fifth, Eovaldi allowed Lagares to reach on an infield single and was pulled. He recorded six strikeouts with no walks and now boasts a 4.15 ERA in 21 2/3 innings. 

"I thought he was up in the zone a little bit," Girardi said of Eovaldi. "He didn’t have great command of his off-speed tonight. They hit some balls pretty hard early and scored two quick runs. And it all happened with two outs. He just struggled getting that third out."

Evoladi, who remains 1-0, will look to get back on track Saturday against the Red Sox.


Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi looking to build off strong outing


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi is hoping to continue his hot start Sunday when he takes the hill against the Mets. Manager Joe Girardi is hoping to see more of the same, including his devastating slide, reports The Journal News.

"I saw in Detroit the best slider I've seen him have. I thought it had great depth," Girardi said. "I thought he threw his curve ball well. They had a predominantly right-handed lineup, so maybe he didn't throw as many splits as in some of the other games. Probably as important as anything, I thought he pitched inside to them. You throw 95, 96 and you're able to pitch inside for strikes and a little bit off the plate, guys aren't really comfortable. That's really important."

Eovaldi is 1-0 with a 3.12 ERA and 14 strikeouts in 17 1/3 innings pitched this season.

"I think sometimes because he's been up a few years, people forget about how young he really is," Girardi said. "He's a young starting pitcher. He's still developing. When you learn how to do some of the things he’s learning how to do, it just makes you that much more effective."


Yanks' starter Nathan Eovaldi goes seven strong for first win


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/21/2015) Starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi (1-0) pitched into the eighth inning on Tuesday, allowing one run on eight hits to earn his first win as a Yankee.

Eovaldi struck out four and was never in any trouble until a leadoff double in the eighth inning, at which put the right hander turned it over to the bullpen.

"I moved my arm a little closer to my body in my last bullpen [session], and I was able to keep it there for most of the game," Eovaldi said. '"It really helped my command."

Eovaldi will get his first taste of the Subway Series on Sunday when his next start will be at home against the Mets.


Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi winless in last six road starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/21/2015) Yankees starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi heads into Tuesday's start at Detroit with a 2-1 record and 2.96 ERA in eight career starts in March/April. However, he hasn't had a ton of success on the road recently.

Eovaldi is winless in his last six road starts, including Wednesday against the Orioles. He is 0-5 with a 6.23 ERA in that span. It is the longest road losing streak of his career. 

The Tigers enter play Tuesday with 70 runs, which is tied for the fourth-highest total in the majors. They are also second in the majors with a .308 batting average against right-handed pitchers.


Yankees' Nathan Eovaldi strikes out nine in no-decision


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, giving up two earned runs on eight hits and three walks in five innings while striking out nine in his team's 7-5 loss to the Orioles.

Eovaldi put plenty of people on base throughout the start but was able to lean on his strikeout ability to limit the damage to an RBI single in the first inning and a solo home run in the fourth.

"In the first inning and the fourth inning I threw a lot of pitches," Eovaldi said after the game, per The Journal News. "I have to do a better job of getting deep into games. It’s early in the season, but still. When I get the quick outs, I need to bounce back from that and keep attacking the zone. I know a lot of times when I did get quick outs, I fell behind 2-0, then it’s 2-1 and they’re battling back and fouling off more pitches."

He takes a 4.35 ERA and 10:4 K:BB ratio in 10 1/3 innings into a matchup with the Tigers next week.


Nathan Eovaldi gets no decision in first start for Yankees


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/11/2015) Yankees starter Nathan Eovaldi was touched for three runs on eight hits in 5.1 innings of work Friday to take a no-decision against the Red Sox in a game that lasted 19 innings.

Yanks starter Nathan Eovaldi shakes off rough first inning against Nats


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/4/2015) The Nationals jumped all over Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi for three runs in the first inning but the right hander settled down and did not allow a run the rest of his start, going 5.0 innings and striking out six on Saturday.

Eovaldi came into Saturday's game with a 0.66 ERA for the spring but saw it spike to 1.93.

Yankees' Nathan Eovaldi tosses scoreless outing Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) 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
(3/27/2015) 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
(3/24/2015) 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
(3/15/2015) 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
(3/9/2015) 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."


Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi happy with debut for New York


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Yankees pitcher Nathan Eovaldi made his debut in pinstripes Wednesday, throwing two innings and allowing two hits and one earned run.

"It's definitely special," Eovaldi said. "It's the same game. You're just in a different uniform. That's the mentality I was trying to take out there to compete."

Eovaldi is building his relationship with Brian McCann as he looks to be a workhouse in the rotation.

"Everything has been good," Eovaldi said. "I got to throw one bullpen [session] with him previously. He's awesome back there. Today, I told him I just wanted to work on moving the ball in and out and work on the split. He said, 'Let's go.'"


Yankees to start Warren, Eovaldi, Rogers during first three games


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2015) The Yankees will open the first three games of spring training with pitchers Adam Warren, Nathan Eovaldi and Esmil Rogers as their starting pitchers, reports Newsday. All three are expected to compete for a fifth or sixth starting rotation spot.

Rothschild: Yankees pondering using a sixth starter in April and May


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild said Wednesday the team is considering using a sixth starter at times in April and May to help reduce a potential early strain on their rotation, per MLB.com. The Yankees have a stretch of 30 games in 31 days beginning April 17.

"It's a result of some of the stuff that's gone on over the last few years, not just here, but everywhere," Rothschild said. "We're aware of situations here and early in the season, we need to get these guys through these stretches. Being that possibly early in the spring, some of them aren't going to be able to throw a lot, we're going to need to build them up too and give them the extra days when we can."

CC Sabathia, Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, Nathan Eovaldi and Chris Capuano are expected to make up the team's five-man rotation. However, Tanaka, Sabathia and Pineda were all injured last season, as the Yankees used 13 starting pitchers.

Bryan MitchellEsmil RogersAdam Warren and Chase Whitley are some of the other pitchers that will be stretched out this spring.

"It'd be nice to go through a season with five starters, but there's a good chance we're not going to," Rothschild said. "There's a good chance every team in baseball won't, so it doesn't hurt to see who might fit in as a sixth starter."


Yankees' Nathan Eovaldi thrilled to be working with Larry Rothschild


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2015) Yankees starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi has already thrown several bullpens with pitching coach Larry Rothschild in attendance, according to the New York Daily News. The right-hander, who was acquired in an offseason trade with Miami, is thrilled to be working with Rothschild.

"We've already begun to work on things," said Eovaldi, who added two are working on offspeed pitches and consistency. "He's awesome. It's going to be a lot of fun working with him this year."

Eovaldi achieved a lot of career highs in 2014, including games started (33), innings pitched (199 2/3 innings) and strikeouts (142). However, he still wants to improve in a few areas.

"Ups and downs," Eovaldi said on evaluating his 2014 season. "I accomplished a lot that I wanted to. I stayed healthy. I got a lot of innings under my belt, controlled my walks. But my ERA was a lot higher than I would've liked it to been and I gave up too many hits."


Yankees' Nathan Eovaldi working on improving his changeup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild has expressed interest in helping starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi fine tune his changeup and get his slider down in the zone more this spring, according to MLB.com.

Eovaldi added he has worked more on his changeup this offseason in order to move away from a predictable fastball-slider combination.

"It's pretty much No. 1 right now," Eovaldi said. "My goal toward the end of the season, my last two or three games with the Marlins, I was working on a changeup -- kind of like a split-finger [fastball], in a way. It's been feeling great. I felt comfortable with it toward the end of the season last year, and this offseason, I've been able to pick up pretty much where I left off.

"I feel like in a way, because I rely on my fastball so much and my walks were down, batters were starting to be more selective and wait for the fastball. Toward the end of the season, I started moving the ball in and out a lot better, and I'll continue that this year, mixing in offspeed pitches. I think it'll be a different year, for sure."
