Red Sox RHP Eovaldi signs four-year deal

Eovaldi gets paid and the Red Sox secure their pitching depth.

After being acquired by the Red Sox, Eovaldi quickly became a critical component to the their rotation as he went 3-3, with a 3.33 ERA, career low 0.5 HR/9 and 2.88 FIP over 12-games (11 starts).

Eovaldi had Tommy John surgery in 2007 when he was a junior in high school and his second in August 2016 while with the Yankees.

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. 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.

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.

Stock markets will close on Wednesday to honor George H.W. Bush
Mulroney said Bush asked him three years ago if he would speak at his funeral, and he said he'd be "honoured" to do it. Current President Trump also shared a few words, saying that Bush had "sound judgement" and " common sense ".

The Yankees spent a king's ransom last season to acquire NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins. That seemed to help his four-seam fastball, as his swing-and-miss rate with his fastball improved from a career rate of 15 percent to 25 percent. So you have a guy who throws 100 and throws strikes, mixes in a cutter, splitter, slider and curveball and you can see why many believe he hasn't quite tapped his potential yet.

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

"Nobody's going to remember who won that game". Eovaldi looks to slot alongside Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, and Eduardo Rodriguez, to once again form a scary rotation and one of the tops in baseball.

With that, the Red Sox have a almost complete roster four days before the start of the Winter Meetings, when the offseason usually kicks into high gear. Your move, Brian Cashman.
