Boston Red Sox Pitcher Officially Placed On Injured List

The Boston Red Sox were expected to place Nathan Eovaldi on the injured list, and now that has officially come to fruition, as he is now on the 15-day IL.

Eovaldi has missed time due to neck and shoulder soreness. The Red Sox were hoping that Eovaldi would be able to return without needing a stint on the injured list, but things have changed on that front.

With the Red Sox trying to get back into the playoff race, it is brutal that Eovaldi will be out for an important stretch. In 18 games this season, the veteran has a 5-3 record and 4.15 ERA.
