Redsox Re-sign Playoff Hero Eovaldi 4-year, $67.5 million

Redsox Re-sign Playoff Hero Eovaldi 4-year, $67.5 million

They didn't want to go past 3 years on Eovaldi, who is a hero in Boston anyway.

Eovaldi has extensive experience pitching in the AL East. Eovaldi has only twice in his seven-year career crossed the 25-start threshold.

Boston's starting rotation looks to be set after locking-up Eovaldi long-term, but questions remain in the bullpen.

According to multiple reports, the starting pitcher has reached a four-year deal with the Red Sox, two months after helping the franchise clinch their ninth World Series title. 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. His lone loss may have been his best outing, as he pitched six innings of relief in Boston's 18-inning loss in Game 3 of the World Series in Los Angeles.

In a flawless 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. The hard-throwing righty kept the NY bats at bay, allowing just one run over seven innings in a series-changing 17-1 win in Game 3 of the ALDS.

It comes as no surprise that Eovaldi is using his strong 2018 campaign to attempt to command a four-year deal.

After stellar performances in 2018, and a heroic playoff run, Eovaldi was set to receive a big contract from suitors as he was seen as a top-5 starter in a shallow pitching market.

His numbers against the Yankees after joining the Red Sox were even more impressive. He spent two seasons with the Yankees in 2015 and 2016.
