MLB Rumors: Red Sox To Trade Pitcher

The Boston Red Sox have been extremely disappointing this season, and changes are expected to be on the way because of it. With their playoff hopes continuing to decrease, don't be surprised to see them make several moves before the deadline passes. Nathan Eovaldi is a pending UFA, so he's one big-name who could be on the move this summer. 

The chances of Eovaldi being traded will increase if the veteran starter and Red Sox are unable to agree to an extension. The Red Sox cannot afford to lose him for nothing via free agency. This is especially true when noting that there would be a big market for his services. Playoff teams are always looking for starters like him for their runs. 

In eight starts this season, Eovaldi sports a 1-2 record and 4.32 ERA.
