The Boston Red Sox have agreed once again to ship former American League Most Valuable Player Mookie Betts and former AL Cy Young award winner David Price to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Red Sox will reportedly receive Dodgers outfielder Alex Verdugo and prospects Jeter Downs and Connor Wong. Sources also say the Red Sox have agreed to pay half of the $96 million dollars left on Price’s deal. The original deal last week included the Minnesota Twins, the Dodgers initially traded starter Kenta Maeda to Minnesota, and the Twins sent pitching prospect Brusdar Graterol to Beantown. But the Red Sox backed out because of Graterol is coming off Tommy John surgery. With that, sources say another deal is in the works, between the Twins and the Dodgers. LA is sending Maeda and cash to Minnesota, and the Dodgers are receiving Graterol, outfield prospect Luke Raley and a draft pick.
