Nathan Eovaldi remains one of the hardest throwers in the game, repeatedly bringing his fastball in at 95 mph and over. What's plagued the right-hander lately has been inconsistent offspeed pitches. And he's been prone to the big inning. Eovaldi has struggled since the All-Star break, posting a 1-4 record with a 5.31 ERA in seven starts. The Angels, meanwhile will go with right-hander Matt Shoemaker, who no-hit the Red Sox for 6 2/3 innings last Thursday before Will Middlebrooks doubled.
