Mookie Betts, David Price traded to Dodgers

The former Red Sox players were traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday.

After much speculation last week, Red Sox players Mookie Betts and David Price have been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Red Sox made it official in a tweet Monday, saying they will now get outfielder Alex Verdugo, infielder Jeter Downs and catcher/infielder Connor Wong in return. 

Last week, NECN reported that the Sox would send "significant" cash to the Dodgers to offset some of the $96 million still owed to Price over the next three years.

Betts and Price both greatly contributed to Boston's run to the 2018 World Series title.
