Boston Red Sox DFS SPIN
Nathan Eovaldi struck out seven and allowed five runs (three earned) on six hits over 5 2/3 innings pitched in Saturday's Grapefruit League loss to the Pirates. In his longest start of the spring, Eovaldi looked like he was in mid-season form. He retired 11 of the first 12 batters he faced before allowing a home run to Michael Chavis in the top of the fourth. He'll wrap up his spring training with a very strong 16/0 K/BB and a 3.55 ERA over 12 2/3 innings pitched. Next stop, an Opening Day matchup against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
New York Yankees DFS Spin
Gerrit Cole held the Tigers to one run in 3 1/3 innings on Friday. Cole struck out five and got 12 swings and misses in a 60-pitch outing. His next start will come on five days' rest against the Red Sox on Opening Day.
