Red Sox Trade Betts, Price to Dodgers

Red Sox Trade Betts, Price to Dodgers

Boston packaged Betts with left-hander David Price in a salary dump that is expected to save the team tens of millions of dollars.

Boston's return package will include outfielder Alex Verdugo from Los Angeles as well as pitching prospect Brusdal Graterol from the Twins. Right-hander Kenta Maeda would move from the Dodgers to the Twins, with right-hander Brusdar Graterol moving from Minnesota to Boston.

Betts won the 2018 American League MVP and could command a contract this victor in excess of $400 million. Price has three years and $96 million remaining on his contract.

Betts is a four-time All-Star and a four-time Gold Glove victor.

However, the Red Sox missed the playoffs.

Maeda, a Japanese native, has spent his entire career in the Major League Baseball with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Over three major league seasons, all with the Dodgers, he has a.282/.335/.449 hitting line with 14 homers and 49 RBIs in 158 games. Los Angeles' only free-agent signings this winter have been one-year deals for reliever Blake Treinen ($10 million) and starters Alex Wood ($4 million) and Jimmy Nelson ($1 million). The 2018 Red Sox also are under investigation for using technology to steal signs.

Unable to sign Betts to a long-term deal, Boston chose to move him now rather than let the four-time All-Star leave as a free agent after the 2020 season.

The L.A. Dodgers are about to land a superstar with a week to go before spring training. With Betts and Price slotting into the Dodgers' lineup and rotation, respectively, L.A.is not only considered the favorite to win the NL West for an eighth straight year, but they also are one of the favorites in a to win the World Series.
