Blockbuster Trade! Boston Red Sox send Mookie Betts to Los Angeles Dodgers

The Boston Red Sox sent former MVP Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a three-team blockbuster trade. The Minnesota Twins are also involved.

It had announced itself for a long time, now execution was reported. The Red Sox have separated from the American League MVP and the face of their franchise, Mookie Betts. The Red Sox also send left-handed David Price to Los Angeles.

In return, the Red Sox will receive outfielder Alex Verdugo and right-handed pitcher Brusdar Graterol from the Minnesota Twins. They get them in the big exchange shop Pitcher Kenta Maeda from Los Angeles.

The deal was apparently inevitable for the Red Sox after Betts, who is in the final year of team control, increasingly announced that he did not want to sign an early contract extension. Instead, it was his stated goal to enter the free agent market next winter in order to be able to negotiate with all interested teams.

Price, in turn, is considered an encore of the Red Sox to continue taking money from the payroll. In addition to Betts, who will earn $ 27 million next season, Price will have $ 32 million in each of the next three seasons. According to media reports, the Red Sox also send just under half of Price’s outstanding salary – around $ 45 million – to Los Angeles as part of the deal.
