David Price shows huge excitement for Nathan Eovaldi news on Instagram

Red Sox Nation is very happy Nathan Eovaldi is returning to the Boston Red Sox on a reported four-year contract worth $68 million, and that includes one of his teammates.

David Price, who jokingly said late last month that Eovaldi "better be re-signing," showed a ton of excitement for his teammate's fortune with an Instagram post on Thursday.

Eovaldi's return bolsters a Red Sox starting rotation that includes Chris Sale, Rick Porcello and Price. That's a pretty impressive group of pitchers for Boston's World Series title defense in 2019.

Eovaldi came to the Red Sox in a midseason trade with the Tampa Bay Rays. He was excellent in the playoffs with a 2-1 record and a 1.61 ERA over six appearances. Price and Eovaldi arguably were the most valuable pitchers for the Sox in their five-game World Series victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
