Former Boston Red Sox star pitcher Nathan Eovaldi has reportedly agreed to terms on a contract with the Texas Rangers. Eovaldi was an All-Star in 2021 and is still capable of being dominant when healthy. He was injured in the 2022 season but should be ready for the 2023 season.
The Rangers have been surprisingly aggressive this season as they seek to gain ground in the American League East. That’s no easy task considering the powerhouse teams that split their division in the Houston Astros and Seattle Mariners.
News of this contractual agreement was posted on Twitter by MLB insider Robert Murray.
