Nathan Eovaldi blasting past his peers

For the longest time, it seemed like last year's 11th rounder was the furthest away from establishing himself as an elite pitching prospect in the organization. Eovaldi got knocked around pretty heavily, in fact, in his first 1 1/2 months at Class A Great Lakes. Was the 19-year-old Texan having a hard time adjusting to a cold weather climate or were his secondary offerings simply not refined enough for full season A ball? It's probably a little from Column A, a little from Column B. But whatever the case, he's been absolutely DOMINANT since 5/21. So dominant that he's put up a ridiculous 1.01 ERA in his last 35.2 IP. While his highly acclaimed peers, Chris Withrow and Ethan Martin, continue to struggle with command, it's been Eovaldi who's been the model of consistency of late. With his season ERA now a very good 3.90 and his K rates climbing to respectable levels, he's flirting with a Top 5 spot in a very wide open race in our Prospect Rankings.
