Let's hope the Yankees get to the ALDS, if so, expect to see Eovaldi.
Nice nugget about Nasty Nate Eovaldi... if the New York Yankees are able to overpower the Houston Astros tomorrow night, he expects to work out of the bullpen, if needed to help the New York Yankees in the ALDS.
Chad Jennings of LoHud writes:
"This afternoon, Eovaldi threw a short 10-pitch bullpen, then he faced
hitters for the first time since being shutdown with elbow inflammation
in early September. Eovaldi said he hasn’t been told anything for
certain, but he expects to be ready and available out of the bullpen if
the Yankees advance to the division series.
'No chance tomorrow, especially after going today,' Eovaldi said. 'But I would assume for Kansas City. I just got done out there, so I
don’t know when I would be throwing next or what I need to do, but 25 or
30 pitches today. … Everything felt good. Felt good, just felt a little
rusty. Other than that, it felt great.'”
I like the sound of that. I'd like it better if it actually happens.
Time to root extra hard for the New York Yankees.
