The Red Sox are looking at Nathan Eovaldi to help fix with their bullpen woes.

The right-hander has been on the 60-day injury list since April 20 after undergoing elbow surgery. According to NESN , he's expected to be ready to pitch again after the All-Star Break, where he will be used in the bullpen at first.
