According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic on Twitter, the blockbuster trade that would send OF Mookie Betts and SP David Price to the Los Angeles Dodgers is on hold. This trade also included a third team, the Minnesota Twins.
In return for their part in the trade the Twins would get SP Kenta Meada. In total the Boston Red Sox would get OF Alex Verdugo and P Brusdar Graterol.
Apparently Graterol has health concerns after his physical. The 21 year old missed time last year due to shoulder issues. He has also already undergone Tommy John Surgery.
This will be resolved in quick fashion. The Red Sox will either ask for cash considerations or another prospect to add into the trade. So while this is a small hiccup, it won’t be a long one. Betts and Price are still leaving Boston
