Negotiations Between Red Sox, Nathan Eovaldi Reportedly "Intensifying"

Eovaldi, 28, was acquired by Boston on July 25 in exchange for Jalen Beeks. Eovaldi gets paid and the Red Sox secure their pitching depth.

Eovaldi has played for five teams in his career. The team's decision to bring Nathan Eovaldi back into the fold should solidify Alex Cora's starting pitching for the 2019 season.

The Boston Red Sox wanted to keep free agent pitcher Nathan Eovaldi in Boston and they have done exactly that. In Eovaldi's return, he was mediocre but showed flashes of his ace potential as he went 3-4, with a 4.26 ERA, 1.3 BB/9, and 8.4 K/9, over 57 innings, and enough to entice the Boston Red Sox to make a deal for the righty. He made four starts against the Yankees, going 2-0 with a 0.39 ERA, and beat the NY in Game 3 of the AL Division Series, when he gave up one run in seven innings. During the Game 3 18-inning classic at Dodger Stadium, he came out of the bullpen for a solid six innings but gave up the walk-off homer to Max Muncy that ended the contest.

In a ideal world, Boston could have gotten Eovaldi on a cheaper, or shorter deal, but that's not where the market for starting pitching is right now.

Eovaldi's contract is worth $68million over four years, the Red Sox announced on Thursday. Eovaldi looks to slot alongside Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, and Eduardo Rodriguez, to once again form a scary rotation and one of the tops in baseball.

Either way you slice it, the Red Sox signed a pitcher, who would be the one or two in many rotations, to be their fourth or fifth starter and he's still in his prime under a pretty decent contract. He spent two seasons with the Yankees in 2015 and 2016.
