While in the majors from 2005 to 2012, the 30 year old Eveland posted a 5.46 ERA and 1.66 WHIP
Eveland spent last season pitching in Korea.
The fact that Eveland did not receive an invite to big league camp as part of his deal tells you all you need to know. This is a depth signing and nothing more.
A look at Eveland’s career splits hammers home the fact that he isn’t appreciably better against left handed hitters than he is against right handed hitters – making him minor league fodder unless there are a barrage of injuries.
In all likelihood, Eveland will be assigned to Triple-A Las Vegas of the PCL and will serve as insurance in the event multiple relievers at the major league level get hurt.
