Red Sox-Dodgers Trade: Deal Is Done, Pending Commissioner's Approval, According To Report

The blockbuster trade between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers is now complete and pending commissioner's approval, according to Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe.

The Dodgers will receive Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto in the biggest waiver trade in league history. In return, the Red Sox will receive salary relief, James Loney, Rubby De La Rosa, Ivan De Jesus, Allen Webster and Jerry Sands.

Boston will send Los Angeles between $10 and $12 million dollars, which the league office must approve. The Dodgers will be on the hook for over $260 million of the salaries owed to Gonzalez, Beckett and Crawford.

Earlier on Saturday, Beckett and Crawford both waived their no-trade clauses, signing off on the trade to Los Angeles. Beckett had been scheduled to start Saturday's game for the Red Sox, but Aaron Cook will start instead on three days' rest.
