Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Strikes out six in no decision

Eovaldi gave up three runs on six hits across 6.1 innings during Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Atlanta. He struck out six and walked one. Eovaldi cruised through the first two innings but got into trouble in the third when Orlando Arcia singled to center. Travis Demeritte followed the single with a two-run shot, and two batters later Matt Olson hit an RBI double to center, tying the game 3-3. Eovaldi was able to settle down after the shaky third, but he was pulled in the seventh inning with 98 pitches after giving up another single to Arica. The veteran righty sports a 3.15 ERA and 42:7 K:BB across 40.0 innings, but he's allowed at least one home run in all but one start this season, including multiple homers three times.

Nathan Eovaldi is avoiding walks more than ever

Imagine something you don’t like. Going to the dentist, stubbing your toe, stepping on a Lego, eating vegetables. Whatever your proverbial poison, just imagine it. Now imagine that you could get really good at avoiding said thing. That’s right, your teeth clean themselves, your toes are impervious to plastic and you figure out how to get all plant-based nutrients from fruits alone.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Middling performance Friday

Eovaldi (1-1) gave up three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four over five innings Friday against the White Sox. He took the loss. Jose Abreu had a sacrifice fly in the top of the third inning and Luis Robert hit a towering two-run homer in the third, which accounted for all the damage on Eovaldi. He has already given up eight home runs in 33.2 innings this season, which is the one big knock on Eovaldi's otherwise stellar season. Tentatively, he lines up to start next weekend in Texas.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Settles for no-decision Monday

The right-hander tossed an efficient 72 pitches (56 strikes) before exiting, but Eovaldi served up solo homers to Lourdes Gurriel and Matt Chapman and was headed for his first loss of the season until the Red Sox tied it up in the eighth inning. Eovaldi will carry a 3.32 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and sharp 24:3 K:BB through 21.2 innings into his next outing, but he's already given up seven long balls on the season.

Red Sox's Nathan Eovaldi: Pulled in fifth inning

Eovaldi surrendered one run on seven hits and one walk while striking out six over 4.2 innings in Tuesday's win over the Blue Jays. He did not factor into the decision. Eovaldi struggled to keep the Blue Jays off the bases in this one, allowing eight batters to reach before being yanked with two outs in the fifth inning. Ultimately, he was able to tightrope out of a lot of trouble, surrendering just one run on a Zack Collins solo homer in the top of the second frame, the fifth long ball he's allowed in three starts. Thankfully, only one of those blasts came with runners on base. All together, Eovaldi has produced a 3.78 ERA and 1.30 WHIP over three starts this season. He's still looking for his first win of the 2022 campaign.
