Tim Lincecum gave up three runs on five hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over seven innings in a losing effort to the Marlins in Miami Sunday.
After suffering through back to back disastrous seasons many wondered if Tim Lincecum's days as not only an elite starter as he had been for so many years but, a serviceable starter were over. Timmy however has begun to show signs of his former dominant self starting with his no-hitter back on June 25th Lincecum has allowed just four earned runs over 37.1 innings. On the season his ERA now sits at 3.68 to go with his 9-6 record and 108 strike outs over 120 innings. ANALYST: Jonathan Impemba
Sean Marshall (shoulder) has resumed throwing from flat ground.
Marshall was shut down at the beginning of spring training with shoulder soreness, but has resumed throwing. Last June, Marshall underwent season ending shoulder surgery after making just 15 appearances in 2014. The only thing scarier than last season's 7.71 ERA is the fact that he has had some sort of shoulder injury in each of the last three seasons. Leave this guy off your draft board.

Nathan Eovaldi has been working on improving his splitter during spring training.
Eovaldi is more of a thrower than a pitcher right now, but the Yankees are hoping he can develop into a mainstay in their rotation. Even though he hasn't had a winning season in his four year career, his velocity is hope for optimism. Eovaldi got knocked around a lot last year, but he doesn't walk many batters, something else the Yankees are excited about. Eovaldi is going late in drafts and there is some solid value to be had if he can take the next step forward. Analysis: Colby Conway
