Eovaldi will be called upon in long relief Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Eovaldi will pitch in relief Tuesday, with Chris Sale expected to serve as the opener, although the southpaw will be held to two innings or 40 pitches. Eovaldi also figures to be at the ready to take over in Sale's next start, with the Red Sox slowly stretching their ace out. Eovaldi's usage going forward will likely depend on how Sale responds after coming back from shoulder inflammation, but unless he suffers a setback, Eovaldi is expected to remain in the bullpen.
