The Red Sox and Astros met in this year's ALCS and now they may be competing again this offseason when it comes to landing free agent right-hander Nathan Eovaldi.

According to's Mark Feinsand, Eovaldi's market is "heating up." The Red Sox and Astros are said to be the leading contenders, but other teams are in the mix as well.

After coming to the Red Sox from the Rays during the season, Eovaldi went 3-3 with a 3.33 ERA in 12 appearances (11 starts), but he's most known for his performance in the postseason. In six appearances (four starts) he went 2-1 with a 1.61 ERA.

Eovaldi is a Texas native, which is also something to factor in.
