Eovaldi, who turns 26 in February, was 14-3 with a 4.20 ERA in 27 starts for the Yankees in 2015, his first year in the Bronx. This marks his second time being arbitration-eligible, and he can become a free agent following the 2017 season.

Eovaldi owns a 29-38 career record and 4.10 ERA in 110 career appearances (106 starts) in five seasons with the Dodgers, Marlins and Yankees.
