SP - Texas Rangers
Nathan Eovaldi had a decent outing against the Red Sox on Tuesday, allowing three earned runs on four hits and three walks over five innings.
He managed to strike out three batters but ultimately took a no-decision as the Red Sox fell 6-4. This performance raises concerns about Eovaldi's fantasy baseball outlook going forward, as he has now given up five earned runs in his last two starts. Despite his solid season stats, fantasy owners may want to monitor Eovaldi closely in his next few starts to see if he can bounce back from this recent slump.
Nathan Eovaldi had a rough outing against the Rangers on Thursday, lasting just 3 1/3 innings and giving up two earned runs on three hits and three walks.
He did manage to strike out three batters, but his pitch count reached 73, leading to an early exit. This performance is concerning for fantasy owners, as Eovaldi's season-long numbers have been solid with a 2.96 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 8.1 K/9. However, his inconsistency and inability to go deep into games could be a red flag moving forward. Fantasy managers should monitor his next few starts closely before making any decisions about his roster spot.
Eovaldi had a rough outing, allowing four earned runs on five hits and one walk in just 1.1 innings pitched.
This performance raises concerns about his consistency moving forward, despite his solid season stats of a 2.95 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 8.1 K/9. Fantasy owners may want to monitor Eovaldi closely in his next few starts to see if this was just a blip or a sign of potential struggles.
The Rangers activated SP Nathan Eovaldi from the 15-day IL Tuesday.
Eovaldi has been on the IL since mid-July due to a forearm injury. The 33-year-old veteran did not go out on a rehab assignment, so fantasy managers should expect him to be limited Tuesday. Eovaldi posted a 2.69 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and a 8.08 K/9 ratio in 33 games prior to the injury.
Rangers SP Nathan Eovaldi threw another bullpen session Tuesday, tossing the equivalent of two innings.
The Rangers are reportedly encouraged by what they saw in the right-handers bullpen session. The 33-year-old should be able to progress to live batting practice and possibly a rehab assignment if he experiences no setbacks in the bullpen session.
