BIP Locations: Nathan Eovaldi

The New York Yankees acquired Nathan Eovaldi from the Miami Marlins along with Garrett Jones and Domingo German for Martin Prado and David Phelps. As always, and as we hinted to earlier on the blog, we are going to take a look at the BIP locations for Mr. Eovaldi and see what the season would have looked like had he pitched 2014 inside Yankee Stadium and not Marlins Park. I'd say enjoy, but it's scary.

Home Runs
Fly Outs

For the first time ever I had to include singles on one of these. The lightest shade of blue are the singles, seen on the legend above, and it looks like one had a real legit shot at leaving Yankee Stadium. A single in Marlins Park is like a home run in Yankee Stadium, that's saying something. The darkest shade of blue are the home runs and none of them stay inside Yankee Stadium, as expected, but the next shade down are triples. It's probably hard to see on the photo but there are two dots in between the 408 sign and the 385 sign that are sandwiched in between two doubles. Both triples leave Yankee Stadium along with at least 10 of the doubles he surrendered. If Larry Rothschild and Gil Patterson don't fix Eovaldi's movement and control of his pitches we may be wishing we had Phil Hughes back in the Bronx in 2015.
