RHP Nathan Eovaldi has agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with a club option for 2018 with the Tampa Bay Rays, according to ESPN's Buster Olney.

Eovaldi is not expected to pitch in 2017 as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.

Eovaldi, who turns 27 on Monday, went 9-8 with a 4.76 ERA in 24 games (21 starts) with the Yankees last season.

In his six-year career, he is 38-46 with a 4.21 ERA in 134 games (127 starts).

The Yankees have had talks with pitcher Nathan Eovaldi and his agent about bringing the right-hander back to New York, reports Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News. 

Eovaldi, 26, underwent his second Tommy John surgery in August and was released by the Yankees in November as the team made its roster cuts.

The New York Yankees have some important roster choices to make by today's deadline to make changes to their 40-man roster before December's Rule 5 Draft, with any prospect added to the roster protected from potential selection. 

The Yankees have a slew of players to consider this season, some of whom are considered among their top-30 prospects.

As of Friday, the Yankees' 40-man roster stands at 39, so if they add more than one player, they'll need to determine which players they will let go in order to make room for any more additions. Some of these decisions should be easy for the organization.

The New York Yankees were hardly favorites to return to the postseason, but they certainly had the pieces in place to make a run. Unfortunately, several variables kept the Yankees from reaching their goal in 2016. Will the organization take measures to address the mistakes during the offseason and through the regular season?False sense of security in Teixeira and RodriguezThe Yankees scored the second-most runs in the American League in 2015, led by surprise production from first baseman Mark Teixeira and designated hitter Alex Rodriguez. The players combined for 64 home runs and 165 RBIs that season completely surpassing expectations. However, the Yankees made a poor assumption that they would receive similar performances from an injury-plagued Teixeira and an aging Rodriguez.

After finishing the season with an 84-78 record, good for fourth place in the American League East, the New York Yankees can look at their pitching staff as a facet that excelled at various points in the season, but had holes throughout.RotationMasahiro Tanaka earns ace money, and in 2016 he pitched like he deserved it. The 27-year-old right-hander hurled a career-high 199 2/3 innings, generating a 3.07 earned run average (3.51 FIP). The ERA was good for third-best in the American League. Tanaka went 14-4 for the Yankees, and the team was 23-8 in his starts. He stopped losing streaks and kept winning streaks going. Tanaka is the unquestioned ace of this staff.

  • The Yankees were shut down by Bartolo Colon, who gave up one run and six hits in 6 2/3 innings.
  • The Yanks had runners at the corners with one out in the ninth against Jeurys Familia but Rob Refsnyder hit into a 5-3 double play to end it.
  • Kelly Johnson homered off Eovaldi to start the fifth to break up a scoreless game. Eovaldi went seven innings, allowing three of his five hits in the fifth.

Chris Carelli, SNY.TV Facebook | Twitter | About Me | Archives

For Eovaldi, tonight's performance was similar to many others this season, and over his career for that matter. After getting away with pitches that sat too far over the middle of the plate for the first four innings, he was victimized by two meaty home runs balls in the fifth inning. Eovaldi has the talent - and the fastball - to be a dominant pitcher, but after six years in the big leagues he has yet to translate his abilities fully into sustained success.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi talks about tuning out trade talk.

The Yankees topped the Giants 5-2 on Sunday afternoon to come away with the series win.


  • Nathan Eovaldi allowed seven hits, but just two earned run, over 6 2/3 innings. Both runs came after Eovaldi had left the game. He walked two and struck out six.
  • Chad Green allowed two inherited runners to score in the seventh, but pitched a shutout eighth and ninth inning to earn the save. He allowed three hits and struck out one.
  • Carlos Beltran got the Yankees started in the first inning with a solo home run.
  • Mark Teixeira followed that up with a solo shot of his own in the second inning.
  • Starlin Castro and Didi Gregorious each drove in runs in the Yankees' three-run sixth inning.

The Yankees get another strong performance from their starting pitching to finish 6-4 on the homestand. As I mentioned yesterday, the wins seem to have come as much from fortunate timing as the solid pitching. Neither the Orioles nor Giants were at full strength and the decent record in their last 10 games might not have fooled ownership, evidenced by reports that the Yankees are taking final bids on Aroldis Chapman.

Neither Nathan Eovaldi nor Michael Pineda have been able to completely covert their natural talents into consistently positive performances for the New York Yankees since being traded to the club. Each pitcher has potential - no one denies that - but has their time ended in New York?

With the Yankees considering a sell-off at the non-waiver trade deadline, Eovaldi and Pineda's names have come up in the rumor mill. Both pitchers have one more year of control, becoming free agents before the 2018 season, and if there is a team out there that believes they can aid either pitcher to maximize their potential, they might take a chance.

If the Yankees were to want to trade just one, which one makes the most sense? Alternatively, should the Yankees see what the rest of the summer brings to either allow the players to regain some value, which might have been lost due to their lackluster production this season, or in order to utilize the production for their own purposes?

Starlin Castro and Didi Gregorius combined to go 4 for 7 with four RBIs, and three New York Yankees pitchers shut down the Baltimore Orioles in a 7-1 win on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium.

Castro hit a two-run home run in the second inning that gave New York a 2-0 lead and hit a two-run double in the sixth inning that made it 5-1, as the Yankees won their third straight game and climbed above .500.

"It's big for us," Castro said, according to the New York Daily News' Mark Feinsand, on getting above .500. "I think that's the way that we're looking to be at that point. I think we are a great team. We just keep positive and keep fighting, I think that we're going to be good."

As the Yankees organization debates whether to become buyers or sellers, trade rumors surround the team. Here is a rundown of the most recent reports surrounding the New York Yankees:

Cubs

Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York says the Yankees could target Cubs' first base prospect Dan Vogelbach in a deal for Aroldis Chapman or Andrew Miller. The Cubs have been openly seeking bullpen help throughout the season, especially wanting a lefty, causing months of rumors linking the two teams.

With an apparent need in starting pitching, the Pittsburgh Pirates are interested in Yankees RHP Nathan Eovaldi, a source told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

The Pirates' starters have a combined 4.83 ERA this season, which ranks them 12th in the National League in that category. On Friday, Pittsburgh moved LHP Jon Niese to the bullpen after he struggled with a 5.13 ERA in 18 starts. 

Eovaldi, who has pitched out of the bullpen his last three outings, is 7-6 with a 5.11 ERA this year. He threw 1 1/3 scoreless innings of relief Friday night against the Red Sox. He is scheduled to start Tuesday against the Orioles. 

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Friday on MLB Network Radio that the team is still deciding if it should be a buyer or seller at the non-waiver trade deadline.

The New York Yankees have been the model of inconsistency in 2016, putting them in limbo with regard to how they will handle the trade deadline and adversely affecting their chances of reaching the postseason.

I have described this Yankees team as resembling Jekyll & Hyde and a yo-yo. The second half of the season can change that, but it will require a convincing turnaround within the first few weeks of returning to the diamond. If not, an overhaul of the roster would be in order.

It is hard to say what is more important for the Yankees as the second half begins -- strong starting pitching, improved offense, revamped middle relief or concentrating on the future. In my view, it has to be a combination of the four factors. That's not a cop out or a way to avoid selecting just one, but rather the stark reality.

Michael Pineda was hit hard as the Yankees lost to the White Sox, 5-0, on Wednesday night in Chicago.

  • RBI hits from Avisail Garcia, J.B. Shuck, and Tim Anderson gave the White Sox a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning.
  • Brett Lawrie's run-scoring force out in the sixth inning extended Chicago's lead to 5-0.
  • Pineda allowed five runs on five hits while walking three and striking out six in six innings.
  • Nathan Eovaldi made his first relief apperance of the season, tossing two scoreless innings.

This Yankees team continues to do its best Jekyll and Hyde act. One day after Masahiro Tanaka's brilliant pitching performance -- backed by a 20-hit performance that produced nine runs -- Pineda faltered and the Yankees bats went back to their season-long slumber.

Yankees RHP Nathan Eovaldi will be available out of the bullpen on Monday and will not make his next start, manager Joe Girardi said.

Girardi noted that if Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller were both available on Monday, Eovaldi would've remained in line to make his start on Friday.

Instead, Chad Green will start on Friday and Eovaldi will not make a start this week.

Eovaldi, 26, has allowed 31 earned runs over his last six starts as his ERA has risen from 3.71 to 5.54.

New York Yankees RHP Nathan Eovaldi said he felt frustrated after allowing six runs and eight hits in four innings in the Yankees' 13-10 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday at Coors Field.

Since winning five starts in a row in May, Eovaldi is winless in his last three starts in June, going 0-1 with a 9.82 ERA and allowing 16 runs and 26 hits in 14 2/3 innings. He has yet to pitch six full innings since May 29.

"We have to get him straightened out," manager Joe Girardi said, according to Newsday's Erik Boland. "We're working at it and we'll get it figured out."

GEICO SportsNite: NY Yankees win 00:01:13
Joe Girardi, Chris Parmelee and Carlos Beltran talk about the Yankees' 12-6 win over the Angels at Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees' offense erupted to overcome a poor start by Nathan Eovaldi as they beat the Angels, 12-6, on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium >> Read more at SNY.TV.

  • Trailing 5-4 in the sixth inning, the Yankees plated four runs to take an 8-5 lead. Chris Parmelee's homer tied the game before Carlos Beltran's RBI double put them up 6-5. Brett Gardner then delivered a two-run single to increase New York's advantage to 8-5.
  • The Yankees put up another four-spot in the seventh inning on two-run homers by Parmalee and Beltran.
  • Eovaldi was hit hard, allowing five runs on 10 hits (including two homers) in 5 1/3 innings while walking one and striking out four.
  • The Angels took a 4-2 lead into the third, before Gardner's homer cut the deficit to 4-3. Jacoby Ellsbury's RBI single in the fourth tied things, 4-4.
  • Albert Pujols' RBI double in the fifth had given the Angels a 5-4 lead.

Eovaldi simply did not have it, suffering through his second straight five-run outing. Fortunately for the Yankees, they were facing a starter who pitched to his 5-plus ERA and the Angels' bullpen was worse.

Nathan Eovaldi has definitely heard the trade rumors around him.

"Rumors are rumors," Eovaldi said in an interview with NJ Advance Digital Media."I feel like (the Yankees are) happy I'm here and I'm happy to be here but if the right deal comes along, I understand."

Eovaldi is no stranger to being the center of trade rumors. Only 26 years old, he's been dealt twice before, once by the Dodgers to the Marlins then again from the Marlins to the Yankees.

The New York Yankees find themselves in an unfamiliar situation, potentially acting as sellers at the upcoming trade deadline. Many feel that anyone and everyone should be placed on the trading block, meaning no one would be "untouchable" on the current Yankees active roster.

The Yankees could certainly choose to trade off pieces in July in an effort to broaden the depth of their minor league system. However, there are a handful of players that should not be actively shopped, in my opinion. That does not mean the players are untouchable - each player can be had for the right price - but these players are not easily replaceable.

  • Austin Romine hit his second home run of the year in the fifth inning.

The Yankees hit three home runs, grabbed a three-run lead and seemed to be in the driver's seat. Instead it all crumbled in the sixth inning.

  • Castro's hit was the only hit against the Rays and Odorizzi, who went seven innings and struck out six. He didn't give up a walk until the seventh, when Brett Gardner reached base before Castro homered.
  • Yankees starter Nathan Eovaldi (6-2, 3.71) allowed one run and six hits in six innings. He struck out seven and walked two.
  • Eovaldi also had a wild pitch, which figured into the Rays' run in the third. Evan Longoria had an RBI single after Brandon Guyer advanced on the wild pitch.
  • The Yankees bullpen was perfect again. Aroldis Chapman earned his seventh save.
  • According to Inside Edge, the Rays saw 68 fastballs combined from Eovaldi, Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller, and Chapman. The lowest velocity was 95 mph.
  • Mark Teixeira replaced Dustin Ackley at first in the bottom of the seventh after Ackley injured his right shoulder diving back to first. After the game, Joe Girardi said Ackley was a "distinct possibility" for the disabled list.
  • The Yankees never had 1 hit or fewer and scored more than 1 run in any game since 1913.

If a team is going to get one hit and win, it better be at the right time and come with a spectacular start from their pitcher and a lockdown bullpen. The Yankees got both Sunday.

After concluding a four game sweep of the Oakland Athletics, the New York Yankees are heading back to the Bronx as the winners of five straight games and four out of their last five series. The Yankees will play the underachieving Toronto Blue Jays who sit a half-game behind the Pinstripes in last place.

The recent wins have been much needed for the Yankees, who after a 8-16 start that left many fans questioning if it was going to be a lost season in the Bronx, have begun a slow crawl back to respectability.

Yankees fans should be careful before becoming too optimistic, however.

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi pulled his starting pitcher after six strong innings and a low pitch count to go to his bullpen trio of Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman for the second straight game as the Yankees beat the Oakland A's, 4-1, Thursday at Oakland Coliseum.

A night after Girardi pulled Nathan Eovaldi after six innings and 85 pitches, he took Ivan Nova out of a 2-1 game despite just 62 pitches and retiring the last five batters in a row in favor of Betances, Miller and Chapman, who have combined for 104 pitches over the past two days.

"There's a reason we put them together down there and it's for games like today and yesterday," Girardi said. "We didn't put them together for games that are 6-1 or 7-1, but when you've got 3-1 and 2-1 and they're close games and you have guys that strike people out, it's much harder to score."
