Eovaldi had Tommy John surgery in 2007 when he was a junior in high school and his second in August 2016 while with the Yankees. At 4 years $68 million, many media members are saying he got overpaid.
He started twice and pitched four times in relief, showcasing his 100-mph fastball and allowing just 15 hits and four earned runs in 22 1/3 innings against the loaded offenses of the Yankees, Astros and Dodgers. The hard-throwing righty kept the NY bats at bay, allowing just one run over seven innings in a series-changing 17-1 win in Game 3 of the ALDS.
Mark Feinsand reports the deal is worth a total of $67.5 million.

Because wind gusts can trick the seismometer, the lander is equipped with an air pressure sensor to isolate that background noise. On Friday, NASA released audio of the Martian wind, the first time sound has been recorded on another planet's surface.
It's not hard to find reason for caution with Nathan Eovaldi's new contract with the Boston Red Sox. In a sense, front offices now have to construct two different teams: one that can win a division over the long 162-game season and one that can win the postseason. Eovaldi looks to slot alongside Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, and Eduardo Rodriguez, to once again form a scary rotation and one of the tops in baseball. But Eovaldi wasn't done there, he came up big in the World Series against the Dodgers.
With that, the Red Sox have a almost complete roster four days before the start of the Winter Meetings, when the offseason usually kicks into high gear.
Chinese probe heads for far side of the moon
