NATHAN EOVALDI, 23, starting pitcher
Final 2012 stats: 4-13, 4.30 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, 5.9 strikeouts per nine innings, 22 starts, 119 1/3 innings.
Contract status: Under Marlins control.
The good: Flashed the potential that had the Dodgers getting excited in 2011. Held the Braves to four hits and no runs for eight innings Sept. 18 for the Marlins. Still developing.
The bad: His second stint in the majors was a slight letdown from 2011, when he posted a 3.63 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 10 games (six starts for the Dodgers). All his numbers slipped some.
What’s next: Is slated to be a member of the Marlins rotation in 2013.
The take: He again started the season at double-A Chattanooga (2-2, 3.09 ERA, 1.23 WHIP), but was called up May 27 to start in the place of Ted Lilly. It was expected to be a short fill-in role, but Lilly never did return.
