Sox-Dodgers deal won't happen Friday

According to multiple sources, the two teams were in the process of reviewing medical information of those involved in a potential deal.

The Sox would receive first baseman James Loney as well as prospects Allen Webster, Rubby De La Rosa, Ivan DeJesus and Jerry Sands in the deal.

Gonzalez scratched from Sox lineup

With rumors that Adrian Gonzalez had been claimed by the Dodgers on waivers and was being discussed in a blockbuster that would send Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford and Nick Punto to Los Angeles in exchange for James Loney and minor leaguers, Gonzalez -- slated to bat fifth in the Red Sox lineup -- was scratched about 10 minutes before the scheduled first pitch of Friday's game between the Red Sox and Royals, replaced in the lineup by Mauro Gomez at first base. Loney was also scratched from the Dodgers lineup against the Marlins.

According to an industry source, the Red Sox and Dodgers are currently reviewing medical records as a prelude to a potential deal.

Sources: Sox, Dodgers talk blockbuster

According to multiple industry sources, the Red Sox and Dodgers have been discussing a deal that would involve sending first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, outfielder Carl Crawford, right-hander Josh Beckett and infielder Nick Punto to Los Angeles in exchange for first baseman James Loney and minor leaguers. News of the framework for the potential blockbuster was first reported by Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com (via twitter).

The Dodgers have reportedly claimed both Gonzalez and Beckett off of waivers.

Gonzalez is in the first full year of a seven-year, $154 million deal. He is hitting .300 with a .343 OBP, .469 slugging mark, .812 OPS and 15 homers this year, a marked decline from his first year in Boston, when he hit .338/.410/.548/.947 with 27 homers and 117 RBI in 2011.

Crawford is in the second season of a seven-year, $142 million deal. He underwent Tommy John surgery for his torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow after hitting .282...

Report: Dodgers claim Beckett on waivers

According to Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com (via twitter), the Dodgers have been awarded a claim of right-hander Josh Beckett on waivers. The move lends itself to one of three scenarios: The Red Sox could simply allow the Dodgers to have Beckett and thus assume the remainder of his four-year, $68 million contract (which has approximately $34 million remaining); the two sides could work out a trade; or the Red Sox could pull Beckett back from waivers, thus ensuring that he will remain with the Red Sox through the end of the month.

The 32-year-old has struggled to a 5-11 record and 5.23 ERA in 21 starts this year. He's had a number of health issues that have caused him to miss starts, including a thumb condition that required a cortisone shot coming out of spring training, minor lat stiffness that led to his being skipped in a start in early May, shoulder inflammation that...
