The Tampa Bay Rays have traded starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi to the Boston Red Sox in exchange for minor league pitcher Jalen Beeks.



Eovaldi was scheduled to pitch Wednesday against the Yankees, but has been scratched from that start in favor of Ryne Stanek.

This year Eovaldi is 3-4 with a 4.26 ERA in 10 starts. He is 28 years old and missed the entire 2017 season recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Beeks, 25, made the first two major league appearances of his career this season, allowing nine runs on 11 hits in 6.1 innings for a 12.79 ERA.
