MLB: Boston Red Sox at Colorado Rockies Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

After the longest and most dramatic week of the offseason, Mookie Betts is officially a Dodger, we’d assume.

This comes nearly five days after the original trade was agreed upon. There’s more info that needs to come out, but it looks as if prospects Jeter Downs and Connor Wong will be joining Alex Verdugo going to Boston.

In addition to Betts, the Dodgers will also be acquiring David Price as well. As expected, the Red Sox will pay half of his remaining $96 million on his contract.

Originally, the trade was supposed to be a three-team trade between the Dodgers, Red Sox and Twins. Instead of going to Boston, Top 100 prospect Brusdar Graterol will be heading to Los Angeles. Kenta Maeda will still be going to Minnesota. According to Ken Rosenthal, the Dodgers will also receive another prospect from the Twins.

Another shocker from the reported deals is the fact that it looks like the Dodgers and Angels will no longer be completing a deal.

Last week, the Dodgers and Angels had agreed to a trade that would send Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling to Anaheim.
