Red Sox Re-Sign Nathan Eovaldi After Playoff Success

Grant SmithDec 08, 2018

Eovaldi reportedly has re-signed with the Red Sox on a four-year deal worth $67.5 million. Given Boston's uncertainty beyond the top three in the rotation - Eduardo Rodriguez, Steven Wright and Brian Johnson are among the options for the final two spots - it seems logical to expect that Eovaldi's high-octane arm would serve to deepen the starting staff.

Another plus for the Red Sox bringing back Eovaldi is that it keeps him away from the New York Yankees, who expressed interest in a reunion with the right-hander after they missed out on Corbin (albeit with much trepidation). Eovaldi underwent Tommy John surgery in his junior year of high school, then underwent a second TJ surgery in August 2016.

Eovaldi, who was traded to the Red Sox in July for Jalen Beeks, posted a 2-1 record in the postseason with a 1.61 ERA over 22 1/3 innings. Eovaldi has only twice in his seven-year career crossed the 25-start threshold.

But it there's one area in which you can't question Eovaldi as he re-signs with the Red Sox, it's his ability to pitch against Boston's biggest rival, the New York Yankees.

Those numbers, of course, include the yeomen's work Eovaldi did against NY during the American League Division Series.

2018 was his first year in the playoffs. He 3-3 with a 3.33 ERA in 12 appearances (11 starts) in the regular season for Boston, before putting forth a tremendous performance in the playoffs. He pitched six innings of relief before giving up the decisive solo home run to the Los Angeles Dodgers' Max Muncy in the 18th inning.
