David Robertson registered his 26th save of the season after tossing a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts against the Blue Jays on Friday.
Robertson continued his ninth inning dominance on Friday night, converting his 26 save in 28 opportunities in 2014. He is now the proud owner of a 2.33 ERA and 0.96 WHIP through 38.2 innings while maintaining a 67:11 K:BB rate which is just remarkable. Having now been used back-to-back days expect Robertson to be avoided at all costs in Saturday's matchup against the Blue Jays. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Nathan Eovaldi allowed four runs on seven hits with no walks and six strikeouts against the Mets on Sunday.
Eovaldi failed to build off his last outing and let the Mets get to him early, yielding four runs through the first three innings. Luckily the bats bailed him out and he was able to walk away with the no-decision after getting yanked in the fifth inning, having thrown 87 pitches (59 strikes). While Eovaldi showed some nice promise when he was with the Marlins, the move to the American League, the AL East and hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium has siphoned out what promise he actually had left. Being a fly ball pitcher in this environment does no bode well for strong ratios. He’ll face the Red Sox in Fenway for his next outing, one you probably want to keep him on the bench for.
