Eovaldi agrees to $68 million, 4-year deal with Red Sox

Nathan Eovaldi cemented himself among postseason greats in Boston Red Sox history following his stellar playoff run through the World Series victory.

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. Eovaldi gets paid and the Red Sox secure their pitching depth. He went 3-3 with a.33 ERA down the stretch. Eovaldi underwent Tommy John surgery in his junior year of high school, then underwent a second TJ surgery in August 2016. The guys discuss what Nathan Eovaldi means to the team. 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. He had already pitched in the first two games but still went six innings in Game 3, throwing 97 pitches and allowing just three hits. He would join a rotation that includes Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello and Eduardo Rodriguez, giving manager Alex Cora maybe the best group of five in the majors right now (especially if Cleveland trades Kluber or Trevor Bauer).

As for the specific Yankees free agency plans, MLB Network insider Jon Heyman has the scoop on who the team is going after next.

Those numbers, of course, include the yeomen's work Eovaldi did against NY during the American League Division Series. If he can give them that kind of regular season production combined with a good playoff performance, he'll easily justify the $17 million plus he'll make next year.

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