Report: Yankees could add Red Sox pitcher if Rodon deal falls through originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

If the Boston Red Sox aren’t going re-sign Nathan Eovaldi, he might wind up back with their archrival.

The veteran right-hander is believed to be the New York Yankees‘ No. 2 pitching option in free agency behind two-time All-Star Carlos Rodon, the New York Post’s Jon Heyman reported Tuesday night.

Heyman reported there’s a “sizable gap” between the Yankees and Rodon in contract discussions, and while New York is expected to continue negotiations with Rodon, the Bronx Bombers “may turn to their next choice” in Eovaldi if talks fall through.

The Yankees are plenty familiar with Eovaldi, who pitched in New York in 2015 and 2016 and posted a career-best 14-3 record with the team in 2015. Eovaldi suffered an elbow injury with the Yankees that required Tommy John surgery and forced him to miss the entire 2017 season, but he’s still pitching at a high level at age 32 and posted a sub-4.00 ERA in four of his five seasons with the Red Sox from 2018 to 2022.

Boston apparently isn’t hell-bent on re-signing Eovaldi, however. Audacy’s Rob Bradford reports that other teams are showing more interest in Eovaldi than the Red Sox, while the Toronto Blue Jays have been tied to Eovaldi as well after he declined Boston’s one-year, $19.65 million qualifying offer.

The Red Sox may not be willing to give Eovaldi a multi-year deal, but if they let him walk, there’s a good chance they’ll be seeing a lot of him next year in the American League East.
