Dodgers to acquire Mookie Betts, David Price from Red Sox

Dodgers to acquire Mookie Betts, David Price from Red Sox”

The Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to acquire Mookie Betts and David Price from the Boston Red Sox. On Tuesday, the Red Sox struck an agreement with the Los Angeles Dodgers on a three-team deal involving Betts, left-hander David Price and Alex Verdugo, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN. Right-hander Kenta Maeda would move from the Dodgers to the Twins, with right-hander Brusdar Graterol moving from Minnesota to Boston. The deal is pending review of medical records for the involved players.

Betts, who is set to be a free agent next winter, reportedly turned down a 10-year, $300 million contract extension with the Red Sox following the 2018 season. Price, a 34-year-old left-hander who is a former Cy Young Award victor, still has three years and $96 million left on the seven-year, $217 million deal he signed in December 2015.

The 27-year-old Betts hit.295/.391/.524 with 29 home runs and 80 RBIs last season. Boston will bid adieu to one of its most popular and productive players of the current generation in parting with Betts - the 2018 AL MVP and a career.301/.374/.519 hitter. He was 2-0 with a 1.98 ERA in three appearances against the Dodgers - two starts, including the Game 5 clincher at Chavez Ravine, and a relief outing - and he absolutely, positively should have been the Series MVP.
