Sox re-sign Eovaldi to 4-year, $68M deal

Reports: Eovaldi re-signing with Red Sox

Price posted a picture of he and Eovaldi together at the duck boat parade celebrating Boston's World Series championship.

Free agent Nathan Eovaldi was the star of the Red Sox 2018 World Series highlight video, and he didn't even have to attend the red carpet premiere. He went on to the ALCS where he won Game 3 against the defending champion Houston Astros delivering a very good six-inning start and then he came in relief for Game 5 with four huge outs out in the series-clinching Game 5. He went 3-3 with a.33 ERA down the stretch.

Take away the strong postseason numbers, the righty pitched 54 innings for the Boston Red Sox since being obtained in a trade with the Tampa Bay Rays. Manager Alex Cora credited Eovaldi's effort with being one of the catalysts that helped Boston win its fourth World Series title in 15 years.

"I felt privileged to be able to watch what Nathan Eovaldi did", Rick Porcello said.

Eovaldi will pitch the 2019 season as a 29-year-old and will spend a healthy chunk of his prime calling Fenway Park home.




Eovaldi had Tommy John surgery in 2007 when he was a junior in high school and his second in August 2016 while with the Yankees.

Passing a team physical Thursday evening was the final hurdle for Eovaldi, who averaged a career-best 97.2 miles per hour on his fastball last season. Eovaldi has only twice in his seven-year career crossed the 25-start threshold.

Eovaldi's return should set the club's starting rotation for 2019.

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.

Craig Kimbrel, Ian Kinsler, Drew Pomeranz, Joe Kelly and Brandon Phillips are Boston's remaining free agents.
