Red Sox could make decision on Mookie Betts trade soon

Red Sox could make decision on Mookie Betts trade soon”

The Boston Globe's Alex Speier reported last night that resolution on trade talks regarding him could come within the next few days.

As what's been a relatively quiet offseason winds to a close, the Los Angeles Dodgers reportedly remain engaged with the Boston Red Sox for a potential Mookie Betts trade.

Mookie Betts is going, going, and might soon be gone.

The Padres have been willing to assemble a trade package that includes young big league contributors in both the outfield (likely center fielder Manuel Margot or corner outfielder Josh Naylor) and the rotation (with a willingness to discuss righthander Cal Quantrill and lefthander Joey Lucchesi). The 23-year-old hit.327 against left-handed pitching in 2019 and is an above-average outfielder. Betts, who is due to become a free agent at the end of this coming season, avoided arbitration with the Red Sox by signing a one-year, $27 million deal with the club earlier this month. So the Red Sox have the ability to engage the Padres if the Dodgers try to lessen the return. As such, San Diego would have to send more young, low-priced talent - either prospects or big leaguers near the start of their careers - than the Dodgers in order to assemble the superior package.

Price has three years, $96 million remaining on his $217 million contract.

Betts, the 2018 American League MVP, hit.295/.391/.524 with 29 home runs, 80 RBI, 135 runs scored, and 16 stolen bases across 706 plate appearances this past season. The deal was the largest one-year salary for an arbitration-eligible player.
