Eveland was rated as high as number seven on the Milwaukee top prospect list in 2006, one ahead of outfielder Nelson Cruz.  Eveland has shown flashes of potential in his career, but has never put it all together. In 2008 he posted a 3.34 ERA in 97 innings over the first three months of the season, with a 65:46 K/BB ratio. In the final three months he struggled with a 5.70 ERA in 71 innings, with a 53:31 K/BB ratio.

At the AAA level he has a 3.63 ERA in 277.2 innings, with a 7.7 K/9 and a 3.4 BB/9. That’s impressive, considering he pitched out of the PCL.  Eveland’s biggest problem has been control, with a 4.7 BB/9 ratio in his major league career.  He’s got good movement on his pitches, especially with his curveball, but his lack of control prevents him from realizing his potential as a back of the rotation starter.
