Bill Shaikin, who covers baseball for the Los Angeles Times, has Tweeted that the Dodgers have been awarded a waiver claim on Adrian Gonzalez.
Pete Abraham, the Boston Globe's beat writer for the Red Sox, says there are three possible outcomes for Gonzalez: The Sox withdraw him from waivers; he is traded to the Dodgers; or Boston gives him to the Dodgers.
Abraham also reported the deal would probably have to involve some players to be named later as only players who clear waivers could be traded by Dodgers.
Starting in 2013, Gonzalez has six years and $127 million left on his deal.
