Always one of baseball's hardest-throwing starters, Eovaldi finally parlayed his high-90s heater to a career-high 22.2 K% supported by a 10.7% swinging-strike rate. He also lowered his walk rate to a career-low 4.4%, leading to a 1.13 WHIP, 3.60 FIP, and 3.23 Deserved Run Average (DRA, per Baseball Prospectus). After re-signing with the Red Sox, he would have been one of the spring's top breakout picks if not for glaring durability and inconsistency concerns. He has showcased the volatility early, allowing 14 runs in 15 frames with 10 strikeouts and walks each. His outside-swing rate has alarmingly dropped over 10%, and his 49% hard-hit rate is an eyesore. The Red Sox placed him on the IL after he appeared to turn the corner against the Yankees. He's not an essential stash in shallow mixed leagues.
