Negotiations Between Red Sox, Nathan Eovaldi Reportedly "Intensifying"

Negotiations Between Red Sox, Nathan Eovaldi Reportedly

Boston Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi has signed a new deal with the MLB World Series champions.

Terms of the deal weren't divulged, but multiple reports peg the deal to be worth $68 million. While he did have a stretch in which he was inconsistent, it was his performance in the big games, particularly against the Yankees, that makes this re-signing a big one for Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowksi. In Game 3 of the World Series, after pitching an inning in each of the first two games, Eovaldi entered in the 12th inning and did not leave until Max Muncy's walk-off home run in the 18th. The New York Yankees reportedly were interested in Eovaldi but did not want to go past three years on a deal.

He then exploded in the playoffs, going 2-1 with a 1.61 ERA in six appearances, including two starts. He threw 22 1/3 innings both out of the bullpen and as a starter while posting a 1.61 ERA. The Red Sox are one of many teams who've been prominently linked to the right-hander, who starred for them following a midseason trade from the Rays. Eovaldi's 111 innings represented a limited workload after returning from his second Tommy John surgery.

"I told him how proud I was of him", Cora said.

Eovaldi delivered back-to-back ideal eighth innings in both Game 1 and 2 at Fenway Park to help Boston take a 2-0 lead before heading to Los Angeles. Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello and Eduardo Rodriguez are all under contract, with Sale and Porcello set for free agency after the season. 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.
