The Boston Red Sox would receive James Loney, Jerry Sands, Ivan De Jesus, a top prospect, and a player to be named later from the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, and Nick Punto, according to Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com.
Loney is a first baseman batting .254 with four homers on the season. Sands has hit .244 in 221 career at-bats with the Dodgers. De Jesus, a second baseman, has 65 career major-league at-bats and has hit .231.
After Adrian Gonzalez was scratched from the lineup today, it appears this trade will be happening soon.
