Red Sox Re-sign Eovaldi
By Tyler Englander 12/07/2018
A playoff hero is returning to Boston. The Boston Red Sox re-signed Nathan Eovaldi to a 4 year, $67.5 million deal.
The 28-year-old joined the Red Sox in July from the Tampa Bay Rays and was a key contributor in the Red Sox World Series run. Eovaldi had a 1.13 ERA in 22.1 postseason innings. Eovaldi’s gutsy performance in Game 3 of the World Series, pitching 6 innings in relief after pitching in Games 1 and 2, has made him a hero in Red Sox Nation.
The move solidifies the Red Sox rotation for the 2019 season with the rotation expected to include Eovaldi along with Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, and Eduardo Rodriguez.
Heading into the Winter Meetings, Dave Dombrowski’s top priority will be securing the Red Sox bullpen. Closer Craig Kimbrel and Joe Kelly are both free agents. Kimbrel is said to be looking for a 6-year deal. The Red Sox have also expressed interest in former Yankees Zach Britton and David Robertson along with Joakim Soria.
