Nathan Eovaldi

Boston Red Sox pitcher Nathan Eovaldi has signed a new deal with the MLB World Series champions.

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal first reported that the deal was done pending a physical. The terms of the contract have not been released, but the deal is reportedly in the ballpark of four-years, $68 million, according to Fancred's Jon Heyman.

Bringing back a pitcher who showed that he is more than capable of pitching in high-pressure situations while keeping him away from your arch-rival makes the pricey re-signing of Eovaldi worth it for the Red Sox. He made 10 starts for the Rays before being acquired by the Red Sox in a trade last season, and he posted a 3.81 ERA in 111 total innings in 2018. Given the fact that Red Sox ace Chris Sale wasn't 100 percent, Eovaldi's performance as both a starter and bullpen arm was a major factor in the team winning their ninth World Series championship.




In six postseason appearances, including two starts, Eovaldi went 2-1 with a 1.61 ERA, a.185 opponent's batting average, 16 strikeouts, and three walks. 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. They didn't want to go past 3 years on Eovaldi, who is a hero in Boston anyway.

If he spends the next four years pitching like he did in the playoffs, the contract will be a bargain.

Those numbers, of course, include the yeomen's work Eovaldi did against NY during the American League Division Series. He missed the 2017 season while recuperating from Tommy John surgery.
