Negotiations between Red Sox, Nathan Eovaldi ‘intensifying’

  • Nathan Eovaldi

If Ian Kinsler doesn't make a throwing error in the bottom of the 13th, the Red Sox win the game and Eovaldi gets the W.

Eovaldi reportedly has re-signed with the Red Sox on a four-year deal worth $67.5 million.

One day after the Red Sox championship parade, team president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski sat in the press conference room at Fenway Park and declared his intentions. "He did a tremendous job for us last season, playing a significant role in helping us win the division and the World Series". Eovaldi worked both as a starter and a high-leverage, multi-inning reliever in October, regularly pumping triple-digit fastballs as he became one of manager Alex Cora's most trusted playoff weapons.


Eovaldi, 28, was 6-7 with a 3.81 ERA in 22 games (21 starts) in 2018 but was 3-3 with a 3.33 ERA after being acquired by the Red Sox from Tampa Bay in late July. Eovaldi helped propel the Red Sox past their AL East rivals, New York Yankees including an 8-inning shut out gem, allowing just 3 hits and striking out 4. His lone loss may have been his best outing, as he pitched six innings of relief in Boston's 18-inning loss in Game 3 of the World Series in Los Angeles.

As for the specific Yankees free agency plans, MLB Network insider Jon Heyman has the scoop on who the team is going after next. Eovaldi has already undergone two Tommy John procedures in his career.

It comes as no surprise that Eovaldi is using his strong 2018 campaign to attempt to command a four-year deal. 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.
