Mookie Betts and David Price Traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers

Mookie Betts contract 2018

The Boston Red Sox have accepted a trade that will send outfielder Mookie Betts and starting pitcher David Price to the Dodgers according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Starting pitcher Kenta Maeda will go to the Twins as part of this three-team trade. Outfielder Alex Verdugo and pitching prospect Brusdar Graterol will be the return for Boston.

Betts, 27, is a career .301 hitter with 139 home runs and 470 RBIs. He won the MVP in the 2018 season. The Red Sox and Betts hadn’t agreed on a long-term deal, which led to the Red Sox trading the star.

Price, 34, is 150-80 in his career with a 3.31 ERA. Last season, he went 7-5 with a 4.28 ERA. The former ace will join a pitching staff that features Clayton Kershaw and Walker Buehler.
