The Yankees acquired right-hander Nathan Eovaldi, infielder Garrett Jones and right-handed pitching prospect Domingo German from the Marlins on Friday in exchange for infielder Martin Prado, righty David Phelps and cash considerations.
In Eovaldi, the Yankees gain a young, hard-throwing starter to bolster the back of their rotation. The right-hander posted a 3.39 ERA in 2013. That figure jumped to 4.37 last season, but Eovaldi still managed to throw 199 2/3 innings for the Marlins. Eovaldi will be 25 years old next season, and he's not eligible for free agency until 2018.
