After days of re-working the deal, the Dodgers and Red Sox have reached an agreement on a deal that will send Mookie Betts and David Price to the Dodgers. This time the deal includes Alex Verdugo, Jeter Downs, and Connor Wong heading to Boston.
Obviously, the difference between the original trade agreement that was reported Tuesday and the agreement now is instead of Graterol heading to Boston, the flamethrowing Twins prospect will be a Dodger instead. The Red Sox will be acquiring three young Dodgers who have promising potential. Verdugo was reportedly coming to Boston all along, so there’s no change there. Downs was ranked #5 in the Dodger system by MLB Pipeline and Wong ranked #28.
Cody Collins will have his thoughts on the trade up tomorrow, so make sure you stay tuned for that.
