Rays to stick with four-man rotation

At first glance, Kevin Cash's news appeared old school: The Rays will continue to use a four-man rotation deep into the season, or perhaps for the entire season. However, upon further review, the news appeared to be new school, as Tampa Bay's manager is talking about creating a hybrid rotation where four starters are in place, followed by a bullpen day when needed.

Nathan Edward Eovaldi Bio Info

Nate signed with the Rays in February 2017 in part due to the club's reputation in handling pitchers recovering from Tommy John surgery… with help from the club's training staff, he achieved his goal of being physically ready to return by the end of the 2017 season, and the Rays exercised his 2018 option... His future in the big leagues began to materialize in 2011, when he added a slider while with Double-A Chattanooga…his fastball velocity also improved year-after-year from there... Nate grew up in Alvin, Texas, and the city's claim to fame is Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, whose name and likeness are ubiquitous…although the two attended the same high school, Nate had never met him until 2016, when the Yankees visited the Astros…Ryan once sent him a signed baseball during spring training congratulating him on his achievements.


Spent the entire season rehabbing from a second Tommy John surgery…is attempting to become the 32nd player to pitch in the majors after two Tommy John surgeries, and only the 12th pitcher to start a major league game after doing so…could become the third to pitch for the Rays after two Tommy John surgeries, following Al Reyes and Lance Carter, and the first to start a game for the Rays.... On Sep 9, returned to strike out a pair in a scoreless inning of a rehab start…threw 10 pitches (9 strikes) in Game 4 of the Southern League Finals for Double-A Montgomery... Also made a relief app in the postseason for Triple-A Durham, pitching a scoreless inning in Game 2 of the Governors' Cup against Scranton/ Wilkes-Barre (Yankees).

On April 25 at TEX, had the longest no-hit bid of his career before allowing a leadoff, 7th-inning single to Nomar Mazara. On May 18 at ARI, yielded a leadoff double to start the game before retiring his final 18 BF…was the first Yankees pitcher to go at least 6 IP and allow 1 baserunner or fewer since Mike Mussina lost his perfect game after 26 BF on Sep 2, 2001 at BOS.
