Talks 'intensifying' between Red Sox, Nathan Eovaldi

Steven Wright (2021), Rodriguez (2022), Brian Johnson (2025) and Hector Velazquez are all arbitration eligible for at least the next two seasons before hitting the open market. He missed the 2017 season while recuperating from Tommy John surgery. 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.

Eovaldi has extensive experience pitching in the AL East. Sure, a guy that helped win a World Series is great to have but Eovaldi sticking around means Price has a buddy to play Fortnite with!

The Red Sox signed Eovaldi to a four-year, $68 million deal on Thursday, ensuring the postseason hero would remain with the club for the foreseeable future.

Packers’ Philbin: Moss firing because of ‘fit,’ not tweet
Philbin, a veteran assistant and former Dolphins head coach, is considered a potential candidate for the permanent job. At about 8:30 Tuesday night, Moss tweeted, "The Packers have informed me that there (sic) letting me go".

"I told him how proud I was of him", Cora said. Eovaldi was aces for the Red Sox in the postseason, tossing 22 1/3 innings of 1.61 ERA ball, including a sterling six-inning relief performance in Game 3 of the World Series against the Dodgers, a game that lasted 18 innings. "That was the most incredible pitching performance I've ever seen". We know the skills he brings to the mound.

Eovaldi will pitch the 2019 season as a 29-year-old and will spend a healthy chunk of his prime calling Fenway Park home. 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 also has once - in 2014, for the Miami Marlins - made a full season of starts.

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