The Red Sox have agreed to trade Mookie Betts and David Price to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Here are the details of the proposed trade:

■ Mookie Betts, 27, will go to the Dodgers. In six seasons, the outfielder has been in All-Star Games and won three Silver Sluggers and four Gold Gloves. He was the American League MVP in 2018, when he batted .346 with 32 homers, 30 stolen bases, and a whopping 1.078 OPS while also becoming a World Series champion.

■ David Price, 34, will go to the Dodgers. The pitcher joined the Red Sox in 2015 from the Toronto Blue Jays. He was on the mound for Game 5 of the 2018 World Series, starting what would be the title-clinching game and leaving in the eighth inning with a 5-1 lead.


■ The Dodgers will also receive cash from the Red Sox as part of the deal.

■ The Red Sox will add Alex Verdugo, 23, from the Dodgers. Verdugo, an outfielder entering his second year in MLB. As a rookie in 2019 for Los Angeles, he hit .294/.342/.475 with 12 homers in 106 games before he missed most of the final two months due to injuries (most notably a back injury).

■ The Red Sox will also add Brusdar Graterol from the Minnesota Twins. The 21-year-old pitcher made 10 big league appearances down the stretch for the Twins, going 1-1 with a 4.66 ERA, after going 7-0 with a 1.92 ERA along with 9.0 strikeouts and 3.4 walks per nine innings in three levels of the minors.

■ The Twins will receive Kenta Maeda, a pitcher from the Dodgers. Maeda, 31, had a 4.04 ERA for Los Angeles last season.
