Even before the start of the Winter Meetings next week, the Red Sox appear poised to rope in their top target on the free agent market -- starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi.

Various reports Tuesday night had the Red Sox and Eovaldi's representatives in talks for what appears to be a four-year deal.

One source confirmed that the two sides were "making progress,'' but cautioned that a deal was not yet done.
