Nathan Eovaldi led the National League in hits allowed last season. How is that going to translate to the American League?
-- Joe A., Pekin, Ill.
Good question. The Yankees don't view Eovaldi as a finished product by any measure, but they're intrigued by his age (he'll be 25 in February) and a live arm that ranked fourth this past season among all starters in average fastball velocity (95.7 mph), according to FanGraphs.com. That big arm is an obvious strength, but it can also work to his detriment, as scouts have noted a tendency to try to blaze his way out of tight spots.
