Negotiations Between Red Sox, Nathan Eovaldi Reportedly

The issue, however, is that Eovaldi's dominant run is far from the norm for his career, and he's had arm issues to boot.

Eovaldi is still on the right side of 30 years old, but banking on him to stay healthy over the course of a four-year deal is certainly a gamble.

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).

Nathan Eovaldi's marathon relief performance in Game 3 of the World Series is a moment that will resonate in Red Sox history. The right-hander, who split his season between the Rays and Red Sox, posted a 3.81 ERA with a 101/20 K/BB ratio in 111 innings during the regular season.

That's why the Red Sox were ultimately forced to pony up a four-year, $67.5 million contract for the talented righty. In both the ALDS and ALCS, he started Game 3 of a tied series and pitched well, allowing one run in seven innings against the Yankees and two runs in six innings against the Astros. That $17 million per season price tag lines up with the predicted contract Eovaldi would receive, so the Red Sox didn't retain his services on any kind of discount. They weren't going to head into the 2019 campaign with Drew Pomeranz as a projected member of their rotation.

His numbers against the Yankees after joining the Red Sox were even more impressive. He was let go by NY after the season and signed with Tampa Bay, a deal that guaranteed $2 million in 2017 and included a $2 million option for 2018.

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