Dodgers Agree To Acquire Mookie Betts, David Price From Red Sox

Former MVP Mookie Betts and former Cy Young Award victor David Price are heading to the Dodgers from Boston.

The Dodgers are sending outfielder Alex Verdugo back to the Red Sox.

Graterol, going from Minnesota to Boston, was one of the Twins' top pitching prospects, reaching the majors in 2019. Now, the Dodgers are left to see whether they can keep Betts when he becomes a free agent after this season.

Price signed a seven-year, $217 million contract with the Red Sox after the 2015 season and is still due $96 million over the next three years.

For his six-year career, all with the Red Sox, Betts has a.301/.374/.519 batting line with 139 homers, 470 RBIs and 613 runs in 794 games.

Now that Mookie Betts is going to be a Dodger, Buster Olney questions whether Los Angeles has enough to win a championship. Just in the previous year, Los Angeles has added Jalen Ramsey, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Anthony Davis - and now Betts.

■ The Dodgers will also receive cash from the Red Sox as part of the deal. The Red Sox are also receiving 21-year-old right-hander Brusdar Graterol from the Twins, who are picking up right-hander Kenta Maeda from Los Angeles. He took over in center field when A.J. He will make the Major League Baseball minimum of $563,500 in 2020. He sports a 3.87 career ERA.

He played a key role in helping the Red Sox win the World Series in 2018.

With news of the trade, the Dodgers' World Series odds went from 7-1 to 4-1 at Caesars Sportsbook, while their odds of winning the NL pennant went from +300 to +150 and their projected win total went from 99 to 100.
