Dodgers, Red Sox Trade Official: Adrian Gonzalez Starts At 1B Tonight For LA

The massive trade that sent Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, and Nick Punto from the Boston Red Sox to the Los Angeles Dodgers is now officially complete, and the Dodgers are wasting no time in getting Gonzalez in the lineup on Saturday night.

Gonzalez is penciled in the starting lineup against the Miami Marlins and he will be batting in the cleanup spot as well as his usual spot at first base.

There is more to the trade which included a pair of players to be named later that are to be shipped out to the Red Sox, and the two that the Dodgers are sending are going to be left fielder Jerry Sands and pitcher Rubby De La Rosa. Those two players can not be officially announced as part of the trade until the regular season is over.
