Report: Red Sox Reconfiguring Mookie Betts Trade, Deal ‘Not a Certainty'

The Boston Red Sox shocked the baseball world when they traded Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a three-team deal involving the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.

However, on Wednesday it was revealed the Red Sox are looking to rework part of the deal after viewing the medical records of right-handed pitching prospect Brusdar Graterol.

Now, there apparently is a chance the deal could fall through completely. Jon Heyman of MLB Network reported Thursday that Boston is looking to reconfigure the trade, and it' is "not a certainty" it will get done.

Now that would be a wild turn of events.

Still, Red Sox fans crossing their fingers for Betts to stay in Boston shouldn't get their hopes up. The most likely scenario is the Red Sox get another asset from the Dodgers or Twins in addition to Graterol and outfielder Alex Verdugo.

Until then, the plot thickens.
