I like guys after Tommy John surgery. I feel like they are good to go and much stronger. He was nasty at the end of last season.

Great news for all Sox fans!
For me in a sense he is like Brock Holt in that not only is he a very good pitcher, but because he has shown that he can be used in a variety and effective ways depending on the needs of the team at a specific time/game.

His fastball and placement of it. That is what changed. He is up over 100 mph now and he can dust the corners with it. He was too wild with it before.

This was part of his scouting report when Boston got him. He seems to be throwing the 4 seam harder and that control mentioned in the skinny has changed a lot.

THE ARSENAL Eovaldi uses a four- to five-pitch mix, relying heavily on his fastball and cutter while working in a splitter, slider and the occasional curveball.

Four-seam fastball: This is Eovaldi’s go-to pitch. He throws it 41.7 percent of the time, according to Brooks Baseball, and he throws it hard: His four-seam is averaging 96.9 mph this season, behind only Luis Severino and Noah Syndergaard among qualified starters, per Statcast.

THE SKINNY Eovaldi has had pretty electric stuff since he came to the big leagues, especially his fastball, which generated some serious buzz while he was with the New York Yankees. His issues usually are with location, as he gets in trouble when he catches too much of the plate. A torn flexor tendon and partially torn UCL in August 2016 also put his career on hold for basically a year and a half.

Interesting. It was 96.9 when he got here. Must have thrown some heat in Boston to bump it up.
