  • Nathan Eovaldi Likely To Be On Pitch Count Early On

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi (side) is likely to be on a pitch count early in the 2023 regular season, according to manager Bruce Bochy. Eovaldi is recovering from left-side tightness in spring training and will likely be limited to 75-80 pitches to open the regular season as the Rangers take a conservative approach with him. It makes sense, given that the 33-year-old right-hander was limited to only 20 starts with the Boston Red Sox in 2022 due to various injuries. His injuries caused his velocity and strikeout rate to drop, and he also had issues giving up the long ball in Beantown. Durability concerns are the biggest factor in Eovaldi's fantasy profile as he gets set to embark on his first season in Texas.

  • Nathan Eovaldi Pitches Well In Triple-A Start

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi (side) put together a strong outing during his Triple-A start on Monday. The right-hander struck out two batters, while allowing two hits over two scoreless frames of work. He was able to throw 22 of his 29 pitches for strikes, which is good news. The next step would be for Eovaldi to make his return to Cactus League action. The expectation is that Eovaldi will be ready for Opening Day, barring any setbacks. Fantasy managers should check back for another update on Eovaldi later in the week.

  • Nathan Eovaldi To Start Triple-A Game Monday

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi (side) will start the team's Triple-A spring game on a back field on Monday. Like ace Jacob deGrom, Eovaldi has been a bit behind in camp while dealing with left side tightness. The Rangers are taking a cautious approach with both starters, but they will test it out in minor-league action to begin the week. If Eovaldi can avoid setbacks, he could get into a Cactus League game his next time out. The 33-year-old right-hander still has a shot to be in the Opening Day rotation in his first year in Texas. He was limited to 20 outings for the Boston Red Sox in 2022 due to injuries, which helps explain his drop in strikeout rate and velocity. Injuries and his issues with the long ball are concerning.

  • Nathan Eovaldi To Throw Light Bullpen Wednesday

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi (side) will throw a "light bullpen" session at camp on Wednesday. It's the first time that Eovaldi will get back on a mound in spring training since he experienced left-side tightness in camp last week. The 33-year-old right-hander still has some time to build his arm back up in time for Opening Day, but any further setbacks would be costly. Eovaldi is joining the Rangers in 2023 after going 6-3 with a 3.87 ERA (4.30 FIP), 1.23 WHIP and 22.4 percent strikeout rate in 109 1/3 innings over only 20 starts. Injuries in Beantown cost Eovaldi some time, velocity and K's for fantasy managers. Home runs were also an issue. Like the Rangers' ace Jacob deGrom, durability makes Eovaldi more of a risk.

  • Nathan Eovaldi Dealing With Left Side Tightness

    Texas Rangers general manager Chris Young said that starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi (side) is dealing with "left side tightness" and will not make his next scheduled Cactus League start. It's similar to the injury that Jacob deGrom came into camp with, and the Rangers will play it safe with Eovaldi in the coming week. As long as Eovaldi doesn't have any further setbacks once he starts to throw again, he will have time to get stretched out for Opening Day. The 33-year-old right-hander was limited to only 20 starts in 2022 with the Boston Red Sox due to back and shoulder injuries, so it's not a good sign that he's already hurt again in camp. A drop in strikeout rate and problems with the long ball also hurt him. Eovaldi's K rate could jump back up if he stays healthy, but durability has been an issue for him in the past.

  • Rangers Land Nathan Eovaldi On Two-Year Deal

    The Texas Rangers signed right-hander Nathan Eovaldi to a two-year, $34 million deal on Tuesday. The 32-year-old can earn up to $63 million in three years if every condition is met. This is another effort by the Rangers to bolster their rotation, which now stands as one of the deepest and most talented in the major leagues. Eovaldi is entering his 12th year in the pros and is certainly a key addition to the Texas organization. He spent the last five years in Boston and posted a 3.87 ERA across 109 1/3 innings in 2022. He missed out on some quality starts due to a couple of injury setbacks, but he is projected to serve as a front-line starter in Texas if he can stay healthy.

  • Angels Express Interest in Nathan Eovaldi

    The Los Angeles Angels have made several upgrades this offseason and continue to take action. The rotation is their next target, and free-agent right-hander Nathan Eovaldi is a figure of interest. Eovaldi has spent the last five seasons in Boston and served as a critical component of the Red Sox rotation. The 32-year-old commenced just 20 starts in 2022 and spent considerable time on the injured list. He finished with a 3.87 ERA, 103 punchouts, and a 4.30 FIP. Although just a year prior, Eovaldi was a candidate for the AL Cy Young after posting a league-low 2.79 FIP. Barring any health issues, the Houston native will serve as a front-line starter for Phil Nevin's club if a deal can be reached.
