Ex-Oakland Athletics pitcher, Dana Eveland, who was designated for assignment this offseason, is pitching brilliantly for the Toronto Blue Jays right now. In two starts, the lefty owns a 2-0 record with an ERA of 1.35. Eveland, who struggled with inconsistency during his time in green and gold, is looking pretty good so far for Toronto. However, since he has yet to face a worthy AL East opponent, it’s too early to say Eveland will be this good throughout the entire season. Last season, Eveland went 2-4 in nine starts for Oakland. He had trouble with his command (22K/26BB) and was a disappointment for Oakland.
But that was in the past. Eveland’s off to a decent start, and he’s got enough talent to be a No.4 or 5 starter in the big leagues. I don’t expect Eveland’s ERA to stay under two for very much longer, since he’s in the toughest division (AL East). But I will say that Eveland should be a solid starter for Toronto, and he should come close or even surpass the nine wins he had for Oakland in 2007.
