Dodgers’ trade for Mookie Betts, David Price is finally official

first_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire The Dodgers have one year to make their championship dreams come true before Betts becomes a free agent.With an argument to be made as the second-best player in baseball behind Mike Trout, Betts seems intent on putting his services up for bids next winter, having reportedly swatted away the Boston’s offer of a 10-year, $300 million extension last month with visions of a 12-year, $420 million deal.A year in Los Angeles – “Hollywood lifestyle” and all – could give the Dodgers a leg up on the competition to sign Betts beyond 2020.If Betts helps rid the Dodgers of the championship-drought monkey on their back, though, all of this week’s moves will be worth it. LOS ANGELES — They spent the winter big-game hunting and finally bagged their prey.Gerrit Cole wanted to be a Yankee, the Dodgers said, and not even their $300 million could change his mind. Anthony Rendon wasn’t interested in the “Hollywood lifestyle” that comes with playing in Los Angeles, he said himself. Stephen Strasburg didn’t want to leave Washington. Francisco Lindor would have cost more than money and the Dodgers weren’t willing to part with Gavin Lux and Dustin May to land him.But they did land Mookie Betts. The 2018 American League MVP became a Dodger along with former AL Cy Young award winner David Price – finally – when a complicated tangle of trades were worked out then reconstructed. The deal became official Monday.“We obviously got the superstar they’ve been talking about all winter,” Dodgers right-hander Walker Buehler said on Sirius XM’s MLB Network Radio, caught for a reaction on his way to Arizona for the opening of training camps next week. “Sacrificed a little of our depth for it. But it’s obviously pretty exciting.”center_img Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season In the original configuration of the trade they hope will finally put them over the top in October, the Dodgers sacrificed surprisingly little – none of their top dozen prospects and only some of their payroll flexibility.But the Red Sox balked after their medical review of hard-throwing right-hander Brusdar Graterol and the Dodgers had to dig deeper into their system to rebuild the deal.Now prospects Jeter Downs (in Baseball America’s Top 100 for 2020) and Connor Wong will go to the Red Sox along with outfielder Alex Verdugo. Kenta Maeda still goes to the Minnesota Twins along with $10 million and minor-league catcher Jair Camargo. But now the Dodgers get to keep Graterol, who has a minor-league history as a starter but could figure into the Dodgers’ bullpen mix immediately. In addition, the Dodgers re-acquired minor-league outfielder Luke Raley (a 2016 draftee they sent to the Twins in the 2018 Brian Dozier trade) and will receive a competitive-balance pick in next year’s draft (the 67th overall).And they will keep outfielder Joc Pederson and right-hander Ross Stripling – at least for now. An ancillary trade that would have sent those two (and their salaries) to the Angels along with minor-league outfielder Andy Pages in exchange for utilityman Luis Rengifo and a prospect was scuttled after the deals with the Red Sox and Twins were reconfigured.Instead, the Dodgers designated for assignment first baseman Tyler White and outfielder Kyle Garlick to make room on the 40-man roster for the trade acquisitions. Without moving Pederson and Stripling (who will make a combined $9.85 million in 2020), the Dodgers’ projected payroll currently exceeds the luxury-tax threshold ($208 million) this year after dipping under the past two seasons.If adding the 2018 AL MVP to an outfield that already includes the 2019 National League MVP results in the team’s first championship in 32 years, it will be a small price to pay – in payroll and prospects.Betts is obviously the difference-maker in this deal. His addition already ends the winter of whining by Dodgers fans who took to social media over the past three months, gnashing their Twitter teeth over the front office’s swings and misses and gathering pitchforks and torches to march on Chavez Ravine.It was the Dodgers’ longest offseason since 2015 in more ways than one. But two months after Manager Dave Roberts’ Winter Meetings prophecy of “probably the most turnover we’ll have from one season to the next,” it has come true.“I think that you’ve got to shuffle the deck sometimes,” he said at a time when the Dodgers’ only acquisition was reliever Blake Treinen.They have done much more now, reloading a 106-win team and responding to the shock of their first-round playoff exit with the biggest gamble of the Andrew Friedman era.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
