The Boston Red Sox appear to be closing in on a key contributor to the 2018 World Series.
According to MLB.com's Mark Feinsand via Twitter Thursday, the team has reached a four-year, $67.5 M contract agreement with Eovaldi to keep him as a member of the World Series champions.More news: ‘America's Next Top Model’ Contestant Jael Strauss Dead At 34
Terms of the deal weren't divulged, but multiple reports peg the deal to be worth $68 million. 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. He spent time with the New York Yankees prior to pitching in Tampa Bay, and he was out for a while after undergoing Tommy John surgery following that.
With that, the Red Sox have a almost complete roster four days before the start of the Winter Meetings, when the offseason usually kicks into high gear.More news: SpaceX rocket booster misses landing as supplies sent to space
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.
"We're very happy to have Nathan back with us", Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said in a news release. Eovaldi's best work undoubtedly came in a marathon loss in Game 3 of the World Series, which saw him throw six innings of three-hit ball with the Sox having nearly no other option out of their bullpen.More news: China and the USA agree not to impose new additional tariffs
