Eovaldi (elbow) is expected to join the Red Sox bullpen in about a week, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Eovaldi has been out since mid-April after undergoing elbow surgery. He's yet to begin a rehab assignment, but he won't need to build up for very long due to his conversion to a relief role. He'll throw to hitters Monday before embarking on what appears to be scheduled as a rather brief rehab assignment. He's expected to close for the Red Sox once active.
