Evans was born and died in Cleveland, Ohio. He signed his first professional contract in 1907 with Dayton of the Class-B Central League. From 1908 through 1915, he played in the National League with the New York Giants (1908) and St. Louis Cardinals (1910–13), and in the Federal League for the Brooklyn Tip-Tops (1914–15) and Baltimore Terrapins (1915). Evans batted and threw left-handed.
He led the National League in being hit by pitched balls each year from 1910 to 1912, setting a single-season record of 31 in 1910 that stood for 61 years before it was finally broken by Ron Hunt. He also set the record for being hit by a pitch in a single game, being hit three times in a game against Brooklyn.
