His secret exposed, Red Sox reliever Brandon Workman leans forward, ever so slightly, and furrows his brow. “Who said this, first off?” he asks conspiratorially, admitting nothing. Uhh, everyone, he’s told. Nathan Eovaldi. Heath Hembree. Craig Kimbrel. Joe Kelly. And Matt Barnes, definitely Matt...

Nathan Eovaldi has not yet spoken to the Red Sox about a contract extension, but he’s open to returning when he hits free agency next month. “I’d love to be back,” Eovaldi said on Monday. “But nothing’s popped up yet.” When Eovaldi arrived in Boston at the trade deadline for left-handed prospect...
