Boston Red Sox fans they’ve been pretty upset with their front office and team leaders recently, after they let go of perhaps their best player lately in free agency, Xander Bogaertswho signed with the San Diego Padres. Now, it would appear the Red Sox don’t want to re-sign another of their 2018 champions who became a free agent either.
According to information from WEEI’s Rob Bradford, the Boston Red Sox do not see pitcher Nathan Eovaldi as one of their priorities to sign in free agency, looking for other options to strengthen their starting rotation heading into the 2022 campaign, being one of the last ‘survivors’ of the 2018 champion team.
The Red Sox acquired Eovaldi in exchange with the Tampa Bay Rays midway through that 2018 season, and he has been a solid member of their rotation ever since. In the 2019 season, Eovaldi received a 4-year, $68 million extension, which ended at the end of the 2022 season.
In 4 1/2 years with the Red Sox, Eovaldi threw 461.2 innings with a 26-18 record, 4.05 ERA and 468 strikeouts.
