World Series hero Eovaldi staying with Red Sox (4 years, $68 million)

World Series hero Eovaldi staying with Red Sox (4 years, $68 million)

Despite his impressive results out of the bullpen in October and Boston's need for bullpen help - Craig Kimbrel and Joe Kelly are free agents - I suspect the Red Sox will view Eovaldi as a starter.

The injury history aside, there are several reasons to like Eovaldi's future, and you can make a strong claim that Eovaldi at $67.5 million over four seasons is a better signing than Patrick Corbin at $140 million over six years. He went from LA to the Miami Marlins to the Yankees, then he signed a contract with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2017 and then was traded to the Red Sox midway through last season as the team was looking to solidify their rotation in hopes of a title.

Eovaldi, 29 in February, has also been tied to the Astros and Yankees in recent days, returned from Tommy John surgery in 2018 and delivered 111 regular-season innings of 3.81 ERA ball with 8.2 K/9 and 1.6 BB/9.

"We're very happy to have Nathan back with us", Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said in a news release. "His performance in the postseason was outstanding, both as a starting pitcher and as a reliever". Nathan Eovaldi was the losing pitcher after serving up a walk-off home run to Max Muncy. The hard-throwing righty kept the NY bats at bay, allowing just one run over seven innings in a series-changing 17-1 win in Game 3 of the ALDS. They weren't going to head into the 2019 campaign with Drew Pomeranz as a projected member of their rotation. The New York Yankees reportedly were interested in Eovaldi but did not want to go past three years on a deal.

Boston earlier reached a $6.25 million, one-year contract with first baseman Steve Pearce, the World Series MVP.
