Red Sox ink pitcher Eovaldi to four-year contract

Nathan Eovaldi

The Boston Red Sox appear to be closing in on a key contributor to the 2018 World Series. In line with Murray's report, Fancred's Jon Heyman has reported that talks between Eovaldi and the Red Sox are centered around a four-year deal worth nearly $17 million per season.

"We're very happy to have Nathan back with us", Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said in a statement as the deal was announced Thursday. Remaining unsigned players who became free agents after winning the Series include closer Craig Kimbrel, left-hander Drew Pomeranz, right-hander Joe Kelly and second basemen Brandon Phillips and Ian Kinsler. "His performance in the postseason was outstanding, both as a starting pitcher and as a reliever". He spent time with the New York Yankees prior to pitching in Tampa Bay, and he was out for a while after undergoing Tommy John surgery following that. Eovaldi was aces for the Red Sox in the postseason, tossing 22 1/3 innings of 1.61 ERA ball, including a sterling six-inning relief performance in Game 3 of the World Series against the Dodgers, a game that lasted 18 innings.

The 36-year-old Happ has a career ERA of 3.90 with 1,357 strikeouts and a 109-82 record.

Price posted a picture of he and Eovaldi together at the duck boat parade celebrating Boston's World Series championship. "Everybody's going to remember Nate Eovaldi", Cora said. That mix made Eovaldi particularly tough on the Yankees and their right-handed lineup, as he allowed just one earned run over 23 innings and limited NY hitters to a.367 OPS after his move to the Red Sox. He missed the 2017 season while recovering from surgery and returned in 2018 with the Tampa Bay Rays, and also with a fastball that neared 100 miles per hour.

It's probably still a little early to declare Eovaldi a "Yankee killer" just yet, but if he can spend the next four years building on these gaudy stats, there will be no denying his place in the storied rivalry.

Eovaldi's most recent contracts were one-year deals worth $2 million per year.
