Nathan Eovaldi hopes this week won’t be his last in Boston Red Sox uniform.

right handed it one of several Boston Red Sox players who could be on the move before the August 2 MLB trade deadline. Intending to become a free agent after this season, Eovaldi would be a good loan for a rival team looking for help with the starting pitch.

Thomas: As the trade deadline approaches, these comments by Chaim Bloom speak volumes.

Eovaldi, however, wants Boston to be such a rival team, despite recent hard times.

“I love being here with the Red Sox. I feel like we’re going to build a team that will give us the chance to win ball games and ultimately the World Series every time we’re eliminated.” Eovaldi Rob Bradford of WEEI said on Audasi Bradfo Shaw. “I understand that this is a business and they will do what they have to do to continue to make the organization better.”

The Red Sox are 50-50 on the season and are currently 3.5 games behind in the American League Wild Card race. With a record of 7-17 in July, some feel they are best off selling on time with a focus on the future. It would almost certainly mean farewell to Eovaldi.

Chaim Bloom does not yet look like a man ready to hit the “sell” button. Chief baseball officer for the Red Sox recently stated his goal is to “get that team into the playoffs”. Eovaldi hopes to be part of this effort in the next couple of months.

“I like the organization here,” Eovaldi told Bradford. “I want to be part of this organization forever.”

Eovaldi, 32, is 4-3 with a 4.43 ERA in 15 starts this season. The 2018 World Series champion finished fourth in AL Cy Young’s 2021 voting, going 11–9 in 32 starts with a 3.75 ERA and a league-leading 2.79 FIP.

Bloom and the Red Sox have until 6:00 pm ET on August 2 to decide Eovaldi’s fate.
