LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 21: Joc Pederson #31 of the Los Angeles Dodgers makes a play on a bloop single from Curtis Granderson #3 of the New York Mets during the third inning at Dodger Stadium on June 21, 2017 in Los Angeles, California

Angels Retract Deal For Dodgers’ Joc Pederson

While the Dodgers were working out a trade for Redsox’ right fielder Mookie Bettsthe team was also trying to get a deal done that would’ve sent multiple players including Joc Pederson to the Angels. The deal for Peterson was delayed because the trade involving Betts had to be worked out first, according to The Athletic.

The deal for Betts has gone through and the Dodgers will also receive pitcher David Price in exchange for outfielder Alex Verdugo, shortstop Jeter Downs and catcher Connor Wong. The Red Sox have also agreed to pay half of Price’s $96 million remaining salary, according to ESPN.

Angels’ owner Arte Moreno got impatient and retracted the deal involving Pederson, and the Dodgers didn’t feel any urgency to get the deal done after the Betts trade worked out. Pederson, 27, hit .249 with 36 homeruns and 74 RBIs in 2019 and had one all-star appearance for the Dodgers in 2015.

Angel’s general manager Billy Eppler released a statement Monday regarding the team’s decision. “There are a lot of components in deals that need to be satisfied before you get to a point where you are calling players and informing them,” Eppler said. “We weren’t able to get to that point. And in fairness to our players and players with other organizations, we won’t comment further than that.”
