Red Sox Officially Trading Mookie Betts, David Price

The Red Sox are officially trading Mookie Betts and David Price.

In a special new report, ESPN MLB insider Buster Olney revealed this weekend that Boston plans on packaging Betts and Price together.

That is the franchise’s preferred way of doing a swap.

In return, the Red Sox want a couple of frontline prospects.

Betts is fresh off agreeing to a one-year deal that will keep him in Beantown for one more season. That said, given how desperately Boston wants to dump payroll, the 27-year-old star being moved sooner rather than later feels like an inevitability.

Price still has three years and $96 million left o his deal, so he is a much harder sell to teams than Betts is.

Nevertheless, if someone wants Betts, they may just have to eat the 34-year-old’s deal to get him.

The Red Sox are currently in the process of looking for a new manager after getting rid of Alex Cora last week. That is currently priority number one.

Once that is out of the way, though – don’t be surprised to see the organization move Betts and Price shortly thereafter.
