You didn’t mention him. But if Rubby De La Rosa can have a bit better control, he could be a Nathan Eovaldi type. Their fastball are both hard with similar movement and not a ton of swing and miss. But Rubby has a changeup and Eovaldi has a nice slider. If Rubby threw the slider a bit harder, it has VERY similar movements to Eovaldi’s as well.

It is a fun comparison IMO
