Boston lost the game when Eovaldi surrendered an 18th-inning home run to Max Muncy, but his performance inspired his teammates.

But it there's one area in which you can't question Eovaldi as he re-signs with the Red Sox, it's his ability to pitch against Boston's biggest rival, the New York Yankees.

In the clubhouse after the loss, his Red Sox teammates gave him a standing ovation in appreciation of his effort.

Eovaldi, 28, was 6-7 with a 3.81 ERA in 22 games (21 starts) in 2018 but was 3-3 with a 3.33 ERA after being acquired by the Red Sox from Tampa Bay in late July. Eovaldi has already undergone two Tommy John procedures in his career. He started and came in relief situations at times and now he's being rewarded for his heroics. Following the trade, he went 2-0 against the Yankees with a 0.39 ERA in four starts against NY including his win in Game 3 of the ALDS. Mark Feinsand of reported a four-year deal worth $67.5 million.

While further research and development is still underway, the procedure is expected to open new corollaries of screening methods. Although the technique is not yet ideal , it represents a promising start and will only improve with time, concludes the team.

The Yankees spent a king's ransom last season to acquire NL MVP Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins.

He also showed improved command with a career-low walk rate of just 4.4 percent.

Eovaldi is part of a projected starting rotation that includes Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello and Eduardo Rodriguez. Maybe that's why the Red Sox will get those World Series rings while the Yankees and Dodgers didn't. The Red Sox are one of many teams who've been prominently linked to the right-hander, who starred for them following a midseason trade from the Rays. The Red Sox had an Opening Day payroll of about $233 million past year and were projected to spend about $220 million in 2019 before Eovaldi. Your move, Brian Cashman.
