Default Sox sign long-term deal with Eloy per ESPN

I know we had one thread about this, but ESPN's Jeff Passan reports that the the Sox are finalizing a "long-term deal" with Eloy.

Probably no reason to keep him down to start the season anymore, unless they were scared off by his numbers in AZ.

After the deal is finalized, the Sox will announce Eloy is having Tommy John surgery!

Maybe his numbers sucked because he felt pressure to seal this deal?

Per Ken Rosenthal the deal is for 6 years, $43M with two club options.
This could end up turning into a STEAL.

Good thing we saved all that money by not getting Machado since Kenny was worried about extending our guys

You mean all the hyper-ventilating on WSI last August that he's all but out of here the moment he's eligible for free agency thanks to the Sox screwing with his service time MIGHT have been a TAD premature? Unpossible!

They still have to bankroll Fulmer's extension in a few years.

It is pretty funny that this could be the highest contract the Sox has given someone and he has yet to step foot on a major league field.

Id rather they wait a year or two to see if he can play at the MLB level. Yes it would cost them more if he shows he can play. My worry is with this organization if he busts they will stroll him out everyday for years and years, no matter what because of the money invested in him.

My question is will he still have to wait the two weeks to be called up, or will the deal start after this season?

I'm usually incredibly critical of this organization (for good reason), but this seems like a pretty good deal.

If he doesn't pan out, it really doesn't hurt the club one bit financially.

If he turns into a superstar (like we all expect/hope), we get a steal.

I like this move.

Deal starts this season. He'll be up for opening day.
