2018 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE FALLOUT: NATHAN EOVALDI BECOMES SO MUCH LESS INTERESTING GOING TO BOSTON

After coming back from Tommy John surgery earlier this season, veteran starter Nathan Eovaldi caught some renewed attention in the fantasy baseball community as his previously underwhelming career strikeout rate ticked up in his first 10 starts for the Tampa Bay Rays and up until recently, his ERA was looking decent as well.  Yours truly did throw some cold water on the early Eovaldi returns in a separate piece two weeks ago as I talked about how he was benefitting some from a lucky BABIP and also for the fact him being gone so long caught opposing hitters a bit off guard.  Well any attractiveness Eovaldi may have garnered now goes out the window after he was acquired by the Boston Red Sox earlier in the day on Wednesday for pitching prospect Jalen Beeks.  Now with an increasing 4.26 ERA and a K/9 that is now down to 8.37, Eovaldi should not be touched even in deeper formats now that he will be calling Fenway Park home.  If anyone does own shares of Eovaldi, you may want to cut bait now before things get nasty.
