Nate Eovaldi has been called up to the Dodgers, according to Kevin Baxter

Via Steve Dilbeck‘s blog, Dodgers Now:

[Updated at 9:01 p.m.: Chattanooga pitching coach Chuck Crim later confirmed The Times' Kevin Baxter that Eovaldi is headed to Los Angeles and said he was told the right-hander would take Lilly's place in the rotation.]

Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly was unusually coy about Eovaldi, who was scheduled to start Saturday night for double-A Chattanooga but instead pitched one inning of relief, striking out all three batters.

Previously, I gave my thoughts on what this might mean, and I’m worried quite a bit about Ted Lilly‘s health.

Hopefully an update on that situation comes soon.
