Eovaldi to make one more rehab start before return

PHILADELPHIA -- Plans to reinstate Nathan Eovaldi to the Marlins' rotation next week have been pushed back a little bit.

Eovaldi, recovering from right shoulder inflammation, will be getting one more rehab start for Double-A Jacksonville before being reinstated from the 60-day disabled list.

Initially, the Marlins were leaning toward making Eovaldi's start on Tuesday night his last at Jacksonville. But after he threw 86 pitches in 4 2/3 innings, the organization decided not to rush the right-hander.

Physically, Eovaldi is fine. His fastball was at 95 mph on Tuesday. But he had a rough first inning, giving up three runs while throwing about 30 pitches against Mobile.

Eovaldi has made three rehab assignment starts, with his first two at Class A Jupiter.
