Miami Marlins SP Nathan Eovaldi is projected as the team's No. 2 starter. He has been fastball-happy over his career, and he topped out at 97mph in his first Grapefruit League start Saturday, March 1. But he has been working to increase his use of sliders, curveballs and changeups this spring. "I have four pitches, and I barely threw my changeup last year," Eovaldi said. "I want to get that more in the mix. Not just fastball-slider. I want to throw my curveball more this year. I felt like that second half was a better when I threw my curveball more."

Miami Marlins SP Nathan Eovaldi spent the offseason working to add more changeups to his repertoire. "I'm working on my changeup a lot," Eovaldi said. "I'm hoping to be able to throw that for strikes more. I know last year, I started using my curveball more, and it helped me out tremendously. Being able to use my slider and fastball off my curveball helped me out." Eovaldi became predictable last year by using his fastball 70.6 percent of the time. He used his changeup just 1.7 percent.

Miami Marlins SP Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) will come off the disabled list to start Tuesday, June 18, at the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Eovaldi has solid strikeout potential but has been plagued by walks. He's worth an NL-only try and could warrant deep-mixed ownership sometime this season.

Miami Marlins SP Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) will make what might be his final rehab start Thursday, June 13, for Double-A Jacksonville. SP Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) will take the mound for his first rehab outing Single-A Jupiter Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: NL-only players could take a run at either player if they're still available, but it's a flyer, at best. Deep-mixed leaguers shouldn't be as interested.

Miami Marlins SPs Nathan Eovaldi (shoulder) and Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) figure to return to the team soon. Eovaldi will make what's expected to be his last rehab start with Double-A Jacksonville Sunday, June 9. Alvarez will throw 50 to 55 pitches in a simulated game Saturday, June 8. SPs Kevin Slowey or Tom Koehler could move to the bullpen to accommodate Eovaldi in the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Eovaldi will be an option for those seeking rotation help in deep mixed leagues. A pitcher-friendly environment in Miami will help his cause. Koehler makes more sense to be sent to bullpen duty when Eovaldi joins the club, but Slowey might not be far behind when Alvarez is ready to return.
