Eovaldi to stay with Red Sox

Red Sox ink pitcher Eovaldi to four-year contract Reports: Eovaldi re-signing with Red Sox
Frederick Owens | 08 December, 2018, 18:14

Fancred's Jon Heyman backs up Murray's report, adding that he heard the current asking price is four years at $17 million per year.

"We're very happy to have Nathan back with us", Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said in a news release.

The 28-year-old right-hander posted a 3.33 ERA in 12 regular-season appearances (11 starts) after arriving from the Tampa Bay Rays in July. He went 3-3 with a 3.33 ERA down the stretch. "His performance in the postseason was outstanding, both as a starting pitcher and as a reliever". Given Boston's uncertainty beyond the top three in the rotation - Eduardo Rodriguez, Steven Wright and Brian Johnson are among the options for the final two spots - it seems logical to expect that Eovaldi's high-octane arm would serve to deepen the starting staff. He had his best season in 2018, however, returning in late May after missing all of 2017 after surgery in August of 2016, then dramatically increased his stock with a huge performance in the postseason. He made four starts against the Yankees, going 2-0 with a 0.39 ERA, and beat NY in Game 3 of the AL Division Series, when he gave up one run in seven innings. They weren't going to head into the 2019 campaign with Drew Pomeranz as a projected member of their rotation.

Five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test
Another part of the report talked about how the deformation of the footwell showed the limit of the structure's integrity. Under Euro NCAP regulations, the lowest score from all four categories forms the basis of the final mark.


Pakistan decides to reply to US President Trumps letter
By becoming the front-line state for the U.S. in the war on terror, he regretted, Pakistan "went through hell". Major General Asif Ghafoor urged the U.S. to leave Kabul as a "friend of the region" rather than a "failure".


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. 2018 was his first year in the playoffs.

The Yankees spent a king's ransom last season to acquire NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins.
