The Red Sox announced Thursday, Nathan Eovaldi has signed new four-year deal.
Terms of the deal weren't divulged, but multiple reports peg the deal to be worth $68 million. 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. He finished 2-1 with a 1.61 ERA, with his one loss coming in an extra-inning affair in Game 3 of the World Series. Eovaldi helped propel the Red Sox past their AL East rivals, New York Yankees including an 8-inning shut out gem, allowing just 3 hits and striking out 4.
"We're very happy to have Nathan back with us", Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said in a news release. Given Boston's uncertainty beyond the top three in the rotation - Eduardo Rodriguez, Steven Wright and Brian Johnson are among the options for the final two spots - it seems logical to expect that Eovaldi's high-octane arm would serve to deepen the starting staff. He went 3-3 with a 3.33 ERA down the stretch. 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. But Eovaldi wasn't done there, he came up big in the World Series against the Dodgers.

Since the coalition intervened in 2015, Yemen has become the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, according to the UN. The reduction of violence, Sanaa Airport, humanitarian access and economic challenges will be discussed, Griffiths said.
For the Red Sox, he'd presumably slot into the rotation behind Chris Sale, David Price and Rick Porcello, though some clubs have reportedly showed interest in utilizing Eovaldi in a high-leverage relief role.
Boston earlier reached a $6.25 million, one-year contract with first baseman Steve Pearce, the World Series MVP. He missed the 2017 season while recuperating from Tommy John surgery.
