David Price had a message for fellow World Series champ Nathan Eovaldi during his Twitch livestream.
The Red Sox pitcher’s new Twitch channel went live Tuesday, and he was streaming himself playing Fortnite and answering questions from fans when Eovaldi joined the livestream. He didn’t have a microphone, but that didn’t stop Price from taking playful jabs at the free agent.
“Everybody wants you to re-sign, and I said no . . . I said re-sign him and send him to Pawtucket,” Price said.
Eovaldi was a hot topic on Price’s livestream before he even logged on, and Price was sympathetic to fans pleas for Eovaldi to return to the Sox.
“Eovaldi better be re-signing,” Price said.
The Sox traded for the 28-year-old Eovaldi in July. He went on to be a steady and even dominant arm for Boston en route to a World Series title. As a free agent, Eovaldi is expected to strike it big, particularly after his spectacular run in the postseason.
