Eo­valdi agrees to $68M, 4-year deal with Red Sox

BOS­TON >> Nathan Eo­valdi’s marathon re­lief per­for­mance in Game 3 of the World Se­ries is a mo­ment that will res­onate in Red Sox his­tory.

Bos­ton re­warded him with a $68 mil­lion, four-year con­tract.

“We’re very happy to have Nathan back with us,” Red Sox pres­i­dent of base­ball op­er­a­tions Dave Dom­browski said in a state­ment as the deal was an­nounced Thurs­day. “He did a tremen­dous job for us last sea­son, play­ing a sig­nif­i­cant role in help­ing us win the di­vi­sion and the World Se­ries. His per­for­mance in the post­sea­son was out­stand­ing, both as a start­ing pitcher and as a re­liever.”

A 28-year-old right-han­der who has had a pair of Tommy John surg­eries, Eo­valdi was ac­quired by Bos­ton from Tampa Bay on July 25. He went 3-3 with a 3.33 ERA down the stretch. He made four starts against the Yan­kees, go­ing 2-0 with a 0.39 ERA, and beat the New York in Game 3 of the AL Di­vi­sion Se­ries.
