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

Reports Talks'intensifying between Red Sox Nathan Eovaldi

The Boston Red Sox appear to be closing in on a key contributor to the 2018 World Series. 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.

The team is reportedly cornering the market for free-agent right-hander Nathan Eovaldi. Also, of course, the uncertainty of a pitcher operating after two Tommy John surgeries, and also one who'd put himself at risk for the good of the ballclub. The flamethrowing righty was particularly impressive with the Red Sox, for whom he pitched to a 3.33 ERA in 54 innings to close out the season before dazzling with a 1.61 ERA in 22 1/3 postseason frames. Eovaldi's career-high in wins came back in 2015 when he posted a 14-3 record for the New York Yankees. They didn't want to go past 3 years on Eovaldi, who is a hero in Boston anyway. The ninth pitcher of the game for the Red Sox, Eovaldi helped save Boston's pitching staff for the rest of the series, which the Red Sox won in five games. He missed the final seven weeks of the 2016 season, the entire 2017 season, and the first two months of the 2018 season.

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

Boston manager Alex Cora said earlier this week Eovaldi was a "game-changer".

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

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.

If he spends the next four years pitching like he did in the playoffs, the contract will be a bargain.
