AP source: Boston trades Betts, Price to Dodgers

BOSTON — The Red Sox have agreed to trade 2018 AL MVP Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers, packaging the star outfielder with left-hander David Price in a salary dump that is expected to save Boston tens of millions of dollars, according to a person with knowledge of the deal.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday night because the trade had not been announced.

The Dodgers are sending outfielder Alex Verdugo back to the Red Sox, the person said. The deal also involves the Minnesota Twins, who are getting right-hander Kenta Maeda from the Dodgers and sending pitching prospect Brusdar Graterol to Boston, according to reports by The Athletic and other outlets.

Los Angeles will also get cash from Boston to offset some of the $123 million owed to Betts and Price, according to reports.

Unable to sign Betts to a long-term deal, Boston decided to move him now rather than let the four-time All-Star leave as a free agent after the 2020 season. He will earn $27 million this season and has expressed eagerness to test the market.

Greene, Braves argue first salary arbitration case this year

Atlanta reliever Shane Greene became the first player to go to salary arbitration this year, asking a three-man panel for a raise from $4 million to $6.75 million as the Braves argued for $6.25 million.

Arbitrators Gary Kendellen, Brian Keller and Allen Ponak heard the case Tuesday.

A 31-year-old right-hander, Greene was a first-time All-Star last year. He had a 2.30 ERA in 65 relief appearances with 64 strikeouts and 17 walks in 62 2/3 innings for Detroit and Atlanta, which acquired him at the July 31 trade deadline. He had a 4.01 ERA in 27 games for the Braves and allowed a tying eighth-inning single to Yadier Molina in Game 4 of the NL Division Series against St. Louis, who rallied to win in 10 innings. The Cardinals won Game 5, then were swept by Washington in the NL Championship Series.

Greene is eligible for free agency after this season.

Service set for members of family who died with Bryant

A public memorial has been announced for three members of a family who died along with Kobe Bryant and others when a helicopter crashed in foggy weather last month outside Los Angeles.

The service for Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli, his wife Keri, and daughter Alyssa will be held Feb. 10 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

“Needless to say ... there will be plenty of room so if you’d like to be a part of this, we’d love to have you!” Altobelli’s brother, Tony, wrote Monday in a Facebook post.

Bryant, daughter Gianna and seven other people died Jan. 26 when the helicopter crashed into a hillside outside Los Angeles.

A public memorial for the former Lakers superstar and his daughter is expected, but plans have not been announced. The remains of all the victims have been released by the Los Angeles County coroner, online records show.

Also killed in the crash were Bryant friends Christina Mauser, Sarah Chester and her daughter Payton, and the helicopter pilot, Ara Zobayan.

U.S. teenager Reyna nets 1st Dortmund goal in German Cup loss

American teenager Gio Reyna scored his first goal for Borussia Dortmund in style on Tuesday night in a 3-2 loss at Werder Bremen in the German Cup.

The 17-year-old, a son of former U.S. national team captain Claudio Reyna, entered in the 66th minute with Dortmund trailing 3-1 in the round-of-16 game.

He scored 12 minutes later after receiving a short pass from Julian Brandt about 10 yards outside the penalty area.

Reyna played the ball from his left foot to his right and back to dribble between Yuya Osako and Leonardo Bittencourt, then played it back to his right as he cut past Davy Klaassen.

Reyna poked the ball toward the center of the field with his right foot to create space and curled a right-footed shot around Milos Veljkovic and into the upper far corner of the net. Goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka was so beaten he did not even leap.

A member of the U.S. team at last year’s Under-17 World Cup, Reyna made senior team debut for Dortmund on Jan. 18 at Ausgberg and at 17 years, 2 months, 5 days, became the youngest American to play in the Bundesliga. Christian Pulisic was 17 years, 4 months, 12 days old when he made his Bundesliga debut for Dortmund on Jan. 30, 2016.
