Before the MLB
Eovaldi’s high school was Alvin High School in Alvin, Texas. There he played for the high school team. He is noted for having had to undergo surgery in his junior year to repair his right ulnar collateral ligament.
As a senior, he was an honorable mention on the Texas All-Star Team.
Eovaldi was supposed to join Texas A&M University, but he was drafted into the MLB instead.
Eovaldi was picked by the Los Angeles Dodgers during the 2008 MLB Amateur Draft. They chose him in the 11th round. His ranking had somewhat fallen because of the surgery he had to undergo when he has a junior.
He played for several minor league teams including the Gulf Coast Dodgers, the Great Lake Loons, the Inland Empire 66ers of San Bernardino, and the Chattanooga Lookouts.
The Dodgers promoted him to the majors in 2011 and he made his MLB debut in a game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. He managed to hit a single and strike out seven times during his debut.
He was later traded to the Miami Marlins and he stayed with the Marlins through to 2014. Before he was traded, he set an MLB record for the most hits allowed (223) for the 2014 season.
Evo joined the New York Yankees in December 2014. He did not start with them until April 2015. He suffered an injury while he was with them and had to be placed on the disabled list because of a partially torn right ulnar collateral ligament and flexor tendon.
He was released in November of that year.
He would sign with the Tampa Bay Rays in February 2017 but he would miss out on most of the gameplay because he was recovering from surgery. In total, he only made 10 appearances with the Rays.
He was later traded to the Boston Red Sox and he debuted with them in July 2018. He helped the team reach the 2018 World Series. They would go on to win the World Series in just 5 games.
He signed with the Red Sox again in 2019 for a four-year contract. In July of 2021, he was named to the MLB All-Star Game.
