MLB Rumors: Boston Red Sox Unlikely to Re-Sign Pitcher

According to WEEI's Rob Bradford, the Boston Red Sox do not view Nathan Eovaldi as a top target when it comes to looking for rotation help. With that, he noted that other clubs are expressing more interest in the veteran. As a result, it seems more likely than not that Eovaldi is done is Boston.

This is another tough pill to swallow for Red Sox fans. They already lost star shortstop Xander Bogaerts, and now a key pitcher in their rotation over the last handful of years is likely to be gone, too.

Boston's rotation is not looking too good heading into the year, so it is surprising that they are not making a bigger push to keep Eovaldi. In 20 games last season, the one-time All-Star had a 6-3 record and 3.87 ERA.
