Negotiations Between Red Sox, Nathan Eovaldi Reportedly "Intensifying"

He had arthroscopic surgery late in spring training to remove loose bodies in his pitching elbow and did not make his season debut until May 30 - his first major league game since August 10, 2016. He missed the 2017 season while recovering from surgery and returned in 2018 with the Tampa Bay Rays, and also with a fastball that neared 100 miles per hour.

The erstwhile starter, who pitched six innings in relief in the team's 18-inning, Game 3 loss, received a huge cheer whenever his name was mentioned by the dignitaries who shared the stage with the four World Series trophies the team has won since 2004.

Eovaldi has extensive experience pitching in the AL East. He became a free agent after the World Series.

Multiple teams were reportedly interested in signing Eovaldi but according to MLB.com, the Red Sox may be the only team in on him at this point.

"I felt privileged to be able to watch what Nathan Eovaldi did", Rick Porcello said. Eovaldi was slated to start Game 4 against the Dodgers but plans changed in a blink.


Eovaldi delivered back-to-back flawless eighth innings in both Game 1 and 2 at Fenway Park to help Boston take a 2-0 lead before heading to Los Angeles.

Eovaldi did not pitch again in the series. "I don't know if we're going to".

A 28-year-old right-hander who has had a pair of Tommy John surgeries, Eovaldi was acquired by Boston from Tampa Bay on July 25. His strikeouts-per-nine - 8.2 - was a career best. He also has once - in 2014, for the Miami Marlins - made a full season of starts.

If he spends the next four years pitching like he did in the playoffs, the contract will be a bargain. Chatwood's first season in Chicago concluded with him in the bullpen, with command issues and a 5.30 ERA.
