Eovaldi signs four-year, $68m deal with Red Sox

Eovaldi signs four-year, $68m deal with Red Sox

Fancred's Jon Heyman reported Wednesday evening that negotiations between the Red Sox and Eovaldi were "getting serious". "He did a tremendous job for us last season, playing a significant role in helping us win the division and the World Series". They didn't want to go past 3 years on Eovaldi, who is a hero in Boston anyway. In both the ALDS and ALCS, he started Game 3 of a tied series and pitched well, allowing one run in seven innings against the Yankees and two runs in six innings against the Astros. He entered Game 3 in the 12th inning and threw 97 pitches over six-plus innings, preventing the bullpen from enduring additional stress. "Everybody's going to remember Nate Eovaldi", Cora said. Eovaldi looks to slot alongside Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, and Eduardo Rodriguez, to once again form a scary rotation and one of the tops in baseball. At 4 years $68 million, many media members are saying he got overpaid. He missed the 2017 season while recuperating from Tommy John surgery. The 28-year-old came up clutch in all three rounds for Boston pitching some gems against two of his former teams in the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers. He had arthroscopic surgery late in spring training to remove loose bodies in his pitching elbow and did not make his season debut until May 30 - his first major league game since August 10, 2016.

After stellar performances in 2018, and a heroic playoff run, Eovaldi was set to receive a big contract from suitors as he was seen as a top-5 starter in a shallow pitching market.

It's not hard to find reason for caution with Nathan Eovaldi's new contract with the Boston Red Sox.
