Boston (N Eovaldi) – Tampa Bay (R Yarbrough) Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 13:10

His four-seamer sits around 90-92 miles per hour and occasionally reaches 95 miles per hour while his two-seamer hangs between 87-89 miles per hour with excellent movement. However, he loses somevelocity when he pitches deeper into games. Beeks also owns a changeup and curveball in his arsenal, but both pitches are consideredaverage pitches as opposed to reliable go-tos. Beeks also throws a cutter which he created from a scrapped slider that sits around 87-90 miles per hour with highly touted movement in on right-handed hitters, although he has the confidence to throw it against left-handed hittersas well. Beeks has been known to throw a four-seam and two-seam fastball.

Since then, Boston decided to go after the next best thing, insurance for the starting rotation. They got that insurance in Nathan Eovaldi, who has quietly been having a decent season for the Tampa Bay Rays after missing all of 2017 and parts of 2016 after undergoing Tommy John surgery. The 28-year-old has pitched to a 4.26 ERA over 10 starts in 2018, amassing a quality 53/8 K/BB ratio, and a 0.982 WHIP over 57.0 innings. The Boston Red Sox watched last night as their chances to acquire Baltimores star closer Zach Britton went by the wayside as the Yankees packaged a trio of young pitchers, headlined by Top-10 prospect RHP Dillon Tate.

The Tampa Bay Rays are displaying a flair for the dramatic on their final homestand of the season and can clinch a series win over the visiting Boston Red Sox when the American League East rivals continue a four-game series Sunday afternoon. The Rays have opened the set with consecutive 5-4 wins - both in 11 innings - to move a game ahead of the Cleveland Indians for the second wild card in the AL.

Beeks started games for both Double-A Portland as well as Triple-A Pawtucket last season, amassing an 11-8 record over 26 total starts, recording a 2.19 ERA in Portland and 3.86 in Pawtucket, which gives the impression hes making quality progress in his development. Beeks, who turned 25 on July 10th, owns a much more compelling 2.89 ERA for Pawtucket while striking out a staggering 117 hitters over only 87.1 innings, leading to an impressive 12.1 K/9.


Tampa Bay, meanwhile, can continue their youth movement by acquiring a young and highly talented left-handed starter with great strikeout ability. Although neither team is likely done with trades yet, Boston is still hungry for a late reliever and Tampa Bay is still looking to offload a few veterans and contemplate whether to make ace Chris Archer available to teams via trade.

In return for Eovaldi, the Rays acquired LHP Jalen Beeks, a 24-year-old with two games of MLB experience for the Red Sox this season. He was a 12th round selection in the 2014 draft by the Red Sox. He has spent the majority of the past two seasons in Triple-A Pawtucket. In 2018, he has shown an increase in strikeouts, while his walk rate is the lowest of his professional career.

The Old Dominion product limited the Red Sox to one earned run over 7 2/3 dominant innings in his one start against them this year, but he has allowed seven runs across 7 1/3 frames in two relief outings versus Boston. Yarbrough went 4-0 with a 1.96 ERA between July and August, but he's 0-1 with a 6.50 mark in three September starts. Andrew Benintendi is 0-for-11 with seven strikeouts against Yarbrough.
