Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports that the Padres and Red Sox have discussed a trade that would send Mookie Betts to San Diego.

Lin writes that the talks have focused on sending a "significant amount of prospect talent" to Boston in return for Betts, and the Red Sox would also receive outfielder Wil Myers. Christopher Smith of MassLive.com adds that there's legitimate interest from both clubs, but that a deal is unlikely at this time. The former MVP has been mentioned as a potential target for contenders all offseason with the Red Sox looking to clear salary, and the Padres have as much prospect capital to move as any team in baseball. The outfielder will make $27 million in 2020, and then is eligible for free agency in 2021.

We were talking about the possibility of trading for Starling Marte- Well, the price would indeed have been high as Arizona traded 2 quality 19 year old prospects for him - including Brennan Malone - who I still think the Braves should have picked last year with their 2nd 1st rounder. I think AZ got the better of the trade, because they have a lot of quality prospects - they could afford to trade 2, and they even still have a higher rated SS in their system than the one they traded. But Malone could be a real good one, so Pittsburg fans will just have to wait.

I guess the odds increased that the Braves trade for Kris Bryant, because he lost his case with the Cubs - so they control him for 2 years before he's eligible for free agency.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic said on MLB Network on Monday that a Mookie Betts trade "is going to happen," possibly on Monday or Tuesday.

This follows a Sunday report from the Boston Globe's Alex Speier, who wrote that a resolution on Betts' situation was imminent. Rosenthal notes that talks continued over the weekend and that there was a "good amount of momentum for the Dodgers." The Padres are also heavily involved, but that scenario is a bit more complicated because they'd reportedly prefer to have Wil Myers involved in the deal. Betts might not be alone in a trade, as it's possible David Price could be traded along with him. Buckle up, as it could be an interesting 24-48 hours.

ESPN's Jeff Passan confirms that the Dodgers are acquiring Mookie Betts and David Price from the Red Sox.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic adds that the Dodgers are sending starter Kenta Maeda to the Twins and that pitching prospect Brusdar Graterol will go from Minnesota to Boston. Los Angeles will move young outfielder Alex Verdugo to the Red Sox in what currently stands as a three-team, five-player swap. Joc Pederson is being sent to the Angels for infielder Luis Rengifo, though that is a seperate trade. Medicals are being exchanged, and this could all be made official by the end of the night Tuesday.

So Boston gets a very good young OF prospect in Verdugo and a very good pitching prospect in Graterol for Betts. I mean... that'd normally be a good haul for a player, but Betts is one of the top few players in baseball and entering his prime. I think ya gotta get more for him than that. The Dodgers made a steal - because they have the money to do it. They give up Verdugo and Maeda. Maeda's no better than a 3rd starter - more like a 4th starter and 32 years old. Wow, they're looking ridiculously good for 2020.

Definition of a gamer. Whenever I saw him at the plate, it seemed like the intensity level of the game dialed up. Congrats to him. Seems like he'd be a natural to coach if he wants to.

Scott Soshnick of Variety reports that Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez have retained JPMorgan Chase to raise capital for a possible bid to buy the Mets.

Hedge fund titan Steve Cohen had a tentative agreement to buy a controlling interest of the Mets from the Wilpon family in December, but negotiations fell apart when Cohen tried to amend terms of the deal (he still owns an eight percent stake in the club). It's not clear how much of the team A-Rod and J-Lo are wanting to buy or what (if any) role A-Rod would aim to have, but, as Soshnick writes, they would need "deep-pocketed partners." Rodriguez's former teammate Derek Jeter, of course, is a minority owner and CEO of the division-rival Marlins.

Prince Fielder Could End Up Being MLB’s Highest Paid Player in 2020

The former Brewers, Tigers and Rangers slugger was forced to end his career in 2016 due to a neck injury. Formally retiring would have meant Fielder would forfeit his salary. Because his injury was deemed career-ending, Fielder and the Rangers simply agreed that he would no longer play and he was released by the team to avoid taking up a 40-man roster spot. This is the final year of the contract, and he’s owed $24 million.
