WooSox Ready To Host Syracuse Mets To Kick Off Final Weekend Home Series With Nathan Eovaldi

Worcester Red Sox, Friday night will host the Syracuse Mets for game four of their final six-game homestand of the 2022 season at 6:45 pm. Friday night is also the final Friday UniBank Fireworks of the 2022 season. 

Before Friday night’s game, Jarren Duran and Jeter Downs from 5:00 – 5:45 p.m will be in the Sherwood’s Diner on Summit Street behind the Polar Park outfield to meet fans and sign autographs.

Boston Red Sox right-handed pitcher Nathan Eovaldi will be Worcester’s starting pitcher against the Syracuse Mets Friday night.  Eovaldi was most recently placed on the Red Sox 15-Day Injured List on August 22 (retro to August 19) with right shoulder inflammation.  Eovaldi, 32, is 5-3 with a 4.15 ERA in 18 starts for the Red Sox this season – 99.2 IP, 108 H, 53 R, 46 ER, 18 BB, 96 SO. His last start for Boston came on August 12 vs. the Yankees when he went 6 strong innings allowing 2 runs in a game the Red Sox won in 10-innings, 3-2.  Nate pitched a 4-inning, 65-pitch simulated game at Fenway Park last Sunday and hopes to make two more starts for the Red Sox in Boston next week and the week after.

In addition to sending Eovaldi to Worcester on injury rehab assignment, the Red Sox today also transferred INF Hudson Potts and OF Izzy Wilson from Double-A Portland to Worcester.
