Dodgers More Likely to Acquire Mookie Betts than Francisco Lindor, Per Jon Morosi (Dodgers Nation)



Francisco Lindor and Mookie Betts have been the two stars that the Dodgers have most often been linked to this off-season. There have been various rumors with the Boston Red Sox reportedly taking a liking to catcher Will Smith and also hoping to attach the albatross contract of left-handed pitcher David Price. According to reports on the Lindor front, the Dodgers have also engaged in talks with the Cleveland Indians on ace right-hander Mike Clevinger.

These are all things we know up to now.

With a lack of recent reports regarding the talks between the Indians and Dodgers, it is safe to assume that the Indians would like to hold onto Francisco Lindor for the 2020 season and that the Dodgers refused to include top prospects in proposals. Now, though, the Dodgers seem to be in the midst of pivoting. According to Jon Paul Morosi, the Dodgers are now more likely to acquire outfielder Mookie Betts from the Red Sox than they are to acquire Francisco Lindor.
