Shortly thereafter, MLB.com's Mark Feinsand reported that the number of teams pursuing Eovaldi at this point appears to be just one. 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.

The Red Sox announced Thursday, Nathan Eovaldi has signed new four-year deal. Eovaldi gets paid and the Red Sox secure their pitching depth. 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.

In 21 regular season starts between the Rays and Red Sox, he went 6-7 with an ERA of 3.81 and a WHIP of 1.12. During the Game 3 18-inning classic at Dodger Stadium, he came out of the bullpen for a solid six innings but gave up the walk-off homer to Max Muncy that ended the contest. 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. In a sense, front offices now have to construct two different teams: one that can win a division over the long 162-game season and one that can win the postseason.

Wilder hoping for a rematch with Fury 'ASAP'
Having been there ringside Saturday at STAPLES Center, it was some of the best atmosphere I've experienced on a fight night. If they wanna be singled out, he gotta obtain all the belts and just, he gotta leave no doubt.

It comes as no surprise that Eovaldi is using his strong 2018 campaign to attempt to command a four-year deal.

The Red Sox entered the offseason with one hole in their starting rotation and now it's filled. Eovaldi, 29, obviously has the big fastball, but also began utilizing a cutter more often, throwing it 32 percent of the time after first unveiling it with the Yankees in 2016.
