Yankees fall to Marlins 12-2


It was supposed to be a battle of the trades, Nathan Eovaldi pitching for the Yankees and David Phelps pitching for the Marlins. But for the Yankees the game ended up lopsided–and not in their favor. Eovaldi gave up eight runs and only lasted two-thirds of an inning as the Yankees fell 12-2 at Marlins Stadium in Miami, Florida.

The Yankees scored in the top of the sixth on a Brian McCann RBI single and again in the seventh on a  Mason Williams RBI double.

Eovaldi pitched two-thirds of an inning, giving up eight runs on nine hits and recording no strikeouts, raising his ERA to 5.12. Chris Capuano pitched four innings, giving up two runs on four hits and striking out five, Chris Martin gave up a run in 1.1 innings and Jose Ramirez gave up a run in two innings of work.

What’s Next?

— The Yankees and Marlins come to the Bronx where they’ll square off at Yankee Stadium for a two-game set. Michael Pineda is slated to start for the Yankees and Jose Urena for the Marlins. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. and the game will air on the YES Network.

  1. This is just one game for each pitcher and it is far to soon to properly reflect on the deal and say that one side won and one side lost. But at this point Eovaldi is a guy with a great arm who doesn't know how to get batters out and Phelps is a guy without great stuff, but knows how to compete during an at bat. The key for the Yankees is that they traded for the higher potential pitcher, but whether or not Eovaldi can reach that potential remains to be seen. This season hasn't been encouraging so far.

    Since Eovaldi is cheaper than Sabathia. Demote him to bullpen in favor of Nova.

    Out of 13 games, Eovaldi made 4 quality starts and 4 good starts but he has been terrible against NL teams (3 starts without 5ip/ 1 QS). He barely managed to keep hits under IPs twice. Interesting.

    After that dreadful performance I'd say the trade is a bust for us. Guy throws 97 and it is right down the middle and gets nobody out . Send him to the bullpen when nova gets here

      i don't see that happening…the idea to bring Eovaldi over was to develop his tools with his potential of being a very good pitcher…2 1/2 months into the season we haven't seen much progress but it's only 2 1/2 months…the question becomes, do the Yankees have the luxury of bringing him out every 5th day with a pennant chase underway and when do they make that decision…it's not going to be anytime soon…
