Sources: Red Sox finally get Gonzalez
The Padres received right-handed starter Casey Kelly, first baseman Anthony Rizzo, center fielder Reymond Fuentes and a player to be named later, a source said.
Kelly, Rizzo and Fuentes are all prospects who have yet to debut in the major leagues.
The Red Sox have scheduled a news conference for 11 a.m. ET on Monday to announce the trade.
The deal appeared to have hit a wall when the sides struggled to meet a deadline for a long-term extension with Gonzalez. According to a source, Gonzalez "turned down a lot of money because he wanted more, and the window closed."
Major League Baseball had approved a negotiating window, but as of Monday, when the deal becomes official, the Red Sox will be able to resume negotiations at any point.
One major league source said the sides have, in fact, agreed on the parameters of a contract extension — just not the final numbers. The person indicated that the deal will not exceed $22 million in average annual value or seven years in duration — in other words, the contract won't be worth more than $154 million.
Gonzalez, 28, is set to earn $6.3 million in the final year of his current contract, which is viewed throughout the industry as a bargain — one reason he seems motivated to get a big-dollar deal now.
