Evolve says "Whenever a creature enters the battlefield UNDER YOUR CONTROL it triggers."  When I use Simic Manipulator to steal a creature is it entering the battlefield under my control, and does it trigger?

Thanks.

No. The creature was on the battlefield already, it's not entering. You're just changing who controls it.

No, it is not entering the battlefield. It was already on the battlefield, it's just changing controller. Evolve does not trigger.
