Criticism poured in for Los Angeles Ange Los Angeles
Criticism poured in for Los Angeles Angels after trade falls through.
The Los Angeles Angels were looking forward to adding Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling, but the trade seems to be fallen through. The Los Angeles Dodgers, Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins worked out the trades and added Mookie Betts and David Price in LA and Kenta Maeda in Minnesota. During the trade discussion, LA Angels fell out of the picture. According to the initial reports over the blockbuster trade Alex Verdugo and Brusdar Graterol (from Minnesota) were going to Boston, Maeda to Minnesota and Betts and Price to LA.
The framework was a deal to send Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling to the Los Angeles Angels for Luis Rengifo along with some unnamed prospects. The initial trade never made to the official announcement as Red Sox di not like what they saw out of Graterol’s physical. After trade talks reopened, Dodgers ended up with Graterol but had to send Boston two more prospects — Jeter Downs and Connor Wong.
